Your author, whose books inspired the Netflix hit, teases Joe Goldberg’s new novel

Author Caroline Kepnes has announced a new book in the You Series that inspired the Netflix show starring Penn Badgley as lovesick killer Joe Goldberg.

In a new Instagram post, Kepnes revealed that the fourth installment in her bestselling novel franchise will be titled For You and You Only: A Novel by Joe Goldberg.

She wrote that the book is due out on April 25, 2023, adding, “I’m so excited to invite you back into Joe’s mind and I hope you love it there!”

The new novel will follow Joe to Harvard, where he will be invited to join a prestigious writing grant, according to a synopsis on Random House’s website.

Despite his initial excitement, Joe is disappointed to learn that his peers “all seem to be cut from the same elite cloth.”

The synopsis continues, “Luckily, Wonder Parish comes into play. You have so much in common. No college degrees, no pretensions, no stories from elementary school or grad school. Just a love of literature.

“If Wonder could only devote himself to the writing life, they could be those rare literary soulmates who never fall prey to their demons.”

Fans celebrated Kepnes’ announcement by writing, “This should be a wild ride.”

“We’ve been waiting,” another Instagram user wrote in capital letters.

The first three titles in the series include You, Hidden Bodiesand You love me.

In March, Netflix announced this production for the fourth season of You ran via the show’s official Twitter account.

The caption of the post read, “I feel DU-4-ic. you sSeason four is now in production.”

The update had fans of the show rallying for the return of Joe’s equally murderous love interest, Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti), who died at the end of season three.

Meanwhile, Joe has fled the US to terrorize a new dating pool in Paris, where season four will be set.

In September it was announced that the first half of the upcoming season will be released on February 10, 2023.

Fans have to wait a whole month for the second part of the fourth season.
