Gee, all this takes?

On Penn Badgley Podcrashed Podcast, star of Netflix you revealed that she asked creator Sarah Gamble to put the kibosh on season 4—and she said yes.

It’s a long sequence considering the show is about an obsessive charmer named Joe Goldberg (Badgley) who falls in love with multiple women. The first two seasons, in particular, were jam-packed with Koitos because, well, it’s Joe.

But that’s not Badgley, apparently.

“I asked Cera Gamble what can I do? no A more intimate scene,” he told his co-host Nava Kavelin on the Stitcher Studio podcast. “It was actually a decision I made before I did the show. I don’t think I mentioned it publicly. One of the main things was, do I want to put myself back on a career path where I always play romantic roles?”

“Fidelity is important to me in every relationship, including my marriage,” Badgley continued “It’s gotten to the point where I don’t want to do that. So I said to Sera, ‘I want zero, to go from 100 to zero.’ But I signed this contract. I signed up for this show. I know what I did. You cannot take this aspect from the DNA of the idea. So how much less can you do, was my question to them. He didn’t even bat an eye. He was really happy that I was that Honestly he was almost sort of, I’d say empowered, it was a really positive response. They came back with an unprecedented reduction.”

Badgley’s character is heading to London in season 4, the first episode of which drops on Netflix on February 9. The second part of the season will launch on March 10.
