Ahead of the Season 3 premiere on Friday, Netflix has handed an early fourth season renewal to its hit drama series You. Casting news for the new season will be announced at a later date. Starring Penn Badgley and Victoria Pedretti, You is developed by Sera Gamble and Greg Berlanti, and Gamble also serves as showrunner.

THE BLACK PHONE TRAILER

It’s the latest from Scott Derrickson, whose biggest credit is 2016's Doctor Strange but whose shriek-inducing capabilities have also been amply demonstrated elsewhere in his filmography, including The Exorcism of Emily RoseDeliver Us From Evil, and Sinister. That last title’s especially noteworthy because The Black Phone also stars Sinister’s Ethan Hawke—though he looks to be playing a much different sort of character here. Check it out!

 

SQUID GAME BECOMES THE BIGGEST NETFLIX SHOW

Squid Game — a fictional drama from South Korea — is Netflix's "biggest-ever series at launch," the streaming company exclusively told CNN on Tuesday. The dystopian series, in which contestants who are deeply in need of money play deadly children's games to win cash prizes, has been viewed by 111 million accounts since debuting on Netflix September 17. To give that number some context, Netflix announced earlier this year that 82 million households watched "Bridgerton" in the first 28 days following its Christmas debut. "Squid Game" surpassed that number in a shorter amount of time. The series is No. 1 on Netflix's Top 10 lists in 94 countries around the world. It's the platform's first-ever Korean series to reach No. 1 in the United States.
