Attention fans! The good news has arrived early, as Netflix has renewed ‘YOU’ for a fifth and final season. The renewal was announced a few hours ago, confirming that Penn Badgley will return for another killing spree—or will he finally face judgment in the psychological thriller? With this great news, it has also been revealed that Sera Gamble, who co-created You with Berlanti, will step down as showrunner for Season 5 to focus on other projects.
“Making the show alongside our writers, producers, directors, cast, and crew has been an honor and ridiculously fun,” Gamble said. Further adding, “And I feel lucky to have worked with an artist as gifted and thoughtful as Penn Badgley. I’m proud of what we’ve all accomplished and feel privileged to pass the torch,” she added before teasing You’s the upcoming final season. “I’m excited to watch and support the You team as they bring Joe Goldberg’s journey to its delightfully twisted conclusion.”

It comes as no surprise that another season has been approved in order to finally wrap up the storyline that has been explored over the last four seasons. If you have been keeping up, the newly premiered fourth season has an approval rating of 92% on Rotten Tomatoes, based on 53 reviews, with an average rating of 7.3/10.
The website’s critics’ consensus states, “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.”
On Metacritic, the fourth season received a score of 73 based on reviews from 20 critics, indicating “generally favorable reviews,” which makes it ideal for Netflix to not scrap the show. Additionally, the fourth season has spent five weeks on the Global Top 10 English TV list and reached the Top 10 in 90 countries.
“We’re proud to see how You has captivated audiences around the world, becoming an instant sensation on Netflix with a resounding cultural impact that has grown season over season,” said Peter Friedlander, Vice President of Scripted Series, Netflix, US, and Canada. “We’re excited — and a bit terrified — to see how it all ends for Joe Goldberg, but one thing is for sure: You are in for an unforgettable ending.”
For the readers who are curious to know more, below we have listed all the important details we could gather! The final season has been confirmed to return sometime in 2024 on Netflix; this year’s gap is typical for a show of this caliber to wrap up its meticulous production on schedule. As per our guess, we can assume that the fans can anticipate new episodes as soon as early 2024, with February being the likely release window, as the fourth season is also planned for the same timeframe.
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 in the near future!
While you wait for any more updates, we recommend that the readers should stream all the seasons of You, which are available exclusively on Netflix with a range of membership options at no additional cost with any of their services. The series is based on Caroline Kepnes’ books and revolves around Joe, a hopeless romantic who enjoys reading and has a habit of stalking and murdering both the women he loves and anyone who gets in his way.
While Joe’s quest for The One started in New York, it first led him to Los Angeles in Season 2 and then, in Season 3, to the oppressive suburbs of San Francisco. In the lastest season, Joe Goldberg starts 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.
