You Season 5: Is it happening or not?

Is You renewed for Season 5?

Netflix has yet to announce a new season of this popular psychological thriller television series. We know that the 4th season premiered the finale episode a few hours ago, making it unreasonable to request any confirmation on a possible renewal as it is clearly too soon for any major network to make such significant statements in such a brief period of time. 

We recommend that fans wait for any formal acknowledgment because the previous season had some major loopholes that went unanswered, leading to more curiosity about what happens next in the story. The network may evaluate the series’ future and reception before approving it for more seasons. Eventually, it will take time to confirm the release date for the next season.

In the meantime, take a look at some of the tweets from fans below, which show that the viewers have started to binge-watch the new season, which will eventually lead them to want to look forward to the 5th season, which may increase the likelihood that the show will be renewed with favorable reviews. So far, the fourth season has reported a 92% approval rating with an average rating of 7.3/10, based on 48 critic reviews on the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes.

On the other hand, the website’s critics’ consensus reads, “The hunter becomes prey in You‘s London-set fourth season, which shows some wear as this premise begins to outlive its believability—but Penn Badgley’s sardonic performance continues to paper over most lapses in logic.” Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned a score of 72 out of 100 based on 19 critics, indicating “generally favorable reviews.”

These reviews can help the network expand plotlines to meet the demands of the viewers while still meeting the requirements of the show’s creators and producers. Additionally, if the series is renewed in the coming weeks, You Season 5 could be the final season, as not many Netflix series tend to run past season after season. Furthermore, after watching the new season, it appears likely that the next season will conclude the story for good.

There isn’t much left to explore further and the plot needs to stick to the theme that the viewers have loved to see rather than trying to be something different, which hasn’t worked well for many series that experiment far away from their source material. Only time will tell which direction the creators intend for this beloved franchise to take in order to reach a satisfying conclusion.

That’s not the end if you’ve noticed the time gap between seasons was approximately one year, which is typical for such a show to complete its elaborate production on time. As a result, if the show is greenlit on time, fans can expect new episodes as early as mid-2024, or even 2025, if the creators take their time laying out the theme and exploring the dynamics for the show’s potential future. 

Of course, this is just speculation, and we’ll have to wait for some time for any prominent network like Netflix to confirm these details, which are being circulated on social media. In the meantime, stream You Season 4, which was split into two parts, to stay up to date with the story, which follows series star Penn Badgley’s return as Joe Goldberg, starting anew this time in London.

After his previous life went up in flames, Joe Goldberg fled to Europe to escape his “messy” past, adopt a new identity, and, of course, pursue true love. But Joe soon finds himself in the strange new role of reluctant detective as he discovers he may not be the only killer in London. Now, his future depends on identifying and stopping whoever’s targeting his new friend group of uber-wealthy socialites.
