You Season 5: Everything to Know About the Final Season

You Season 5: Everything to Know About the Final Season

While an official release date hasn’t been announced, the Netflix site confirms that You Season 5 will be its final season.

Joe Goldberg might be going by a brand new name in a brand new country, but he’s back to his old tricks in season 4 of Netflix’s You. The latest season follows Joe (Penn Badgley) as he heads across the pond for a fresh start in London and transforms into Professor Jonathan Moore. Part 1 dropped on February 9 and tried to convince us that Joe had (mostly) dropped his murderous ways for good… but then Part 2 premiered on March 9, took a super unexpected turn, and proved that Joe is still the same evil Joe we met in Brooklyn way back when.

Speaking of, the final scene of You season 4 finds Joe back where it all began — in New York City. He’s in a relationship with Kate (Charlotte Ritchie), who’s inherited her father’s business empire and helped Joe manufacture the image of a “quiet hero.” The couple, who appear genuinely in love, seem intent on “changing the world.” Hoping for more of your favorite Netflix hit? Read ahead for everything we know (so far) about You season 5, including if it’s happening.

Is You returning for season 5?

After four jaw-dropping seasons, Netflix has confirmed that You will end in 2024 with the 5th and final season. The official You Twitter account confirmed the news in a video clip that followed the show’s star Joe, through various stages as he narrated, “Well, hello there. Hello, you. Hello, there. Hello, you. Goodbye, you.”Joe Goldberg will return for the fifth and final season of YOU in 2024,” the tweet read.

The show’s fifth season will be its last.

Gamble has said that the creative team feels strongly that the series did not outstay its welcome, and that the saga of Joe Goldberg be brought to an end before they run out of good ideas.

“It was never anyone’s intention to run this one into the ground,” she said. “When we’re done, we’ll be done. And we’ll pack it up. Even in the early conversations with Penn, the idea was not to crank out episodes forever; it’s to feel like we have told the complete story. And though I feel like tonally, we’re very different and we are not trying to sell Joe as any kind of a hero with a straight face. This is a show that is in the tradition of these single-lead shows with a guy who does increasingly bad things. The beautiful thing about it is that when his arc is complete, so is the show.”

What’s going to happen in You season 5?

At the end of season 4, Joe is back in New York, seemingly trying to move on from his London murders. But with “Rhys” popping back up in the final scene and Joe embracing his killer side, it seems like he won’t be moving on at all (shocker!). Unfortunately for him, he’s now famous (thanks to Kate’s PR campaign) and probably can’t get away with his messy, spontaneous murders as he used to anymore, so that should work out well for him. He’s also bought a bookstore of his own, so I’d be willing to bet some money that it has a creepy murder basement that may or may not have a cage in it.

As Penn Badgley said, he wants Joe to finally get what’s coming to him in season 5. And in an interview with The New York Post, the show’s creator Sera Gamble also hinted at the fact that Joe’s new notoriety is going to make it tricky to keep doing what he’s been doing. So it seems like season 5 is going to finally be the end of Joe casually killing pretty much every acquaintance he has and miraculously getting away with it.

Who’s in the cast for You season 5?

Every season of You tends to bring a fresh new cast as Joe heads to a new location, trying to run away from his messy (and murderous) past. But with Joe back in New York, that opens to door to seeing some of the same characters from season 1 coming back, like his bookstore buddy Ethan (played by Zach Cherry) or his old neighbor Paco (played by Luca Padovan). He was with Kate at the end of season 4, so it seems like actress Charlotte Ritchie will be on the season 5 cast list too.

We also know that Netflix tried to bring Jenna Ortega back for season 4 to reprise her role as Ellie Alves, but unfortunately, her Wednesday filming schedule wouldn’t allow for it. So now we’ve got our fingers crossed that she’ll be able to make it back for season 5.

Who are the showrunners for You season 5?

You season 5 will have new showrunners, with executive producers Michael Foley and Justin W. Lo taking over for Sera Gamble, who originally developed the series Greg Berlanti.

“As I step back from day-to-day showrunning to focus on new projects, I’m immensely grateful to co-creator and all-around genius Greg Berlanti, Caroline Kepnes, my friends at Berlanti Productions and Alloy Entertainment, and our steadfast partners at Warner Bros and Netflix,” Gamble said in a statement.

“Making the show alongside our writers, producers, directors, cast, and crew has been an honor and ridiculously fun. 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. I’m excited to watch and support the You team as they bring Joe Goldberg’s journey to its delightfully twisted conclusion.”

When would ‘You’ season 5 come out?

Netflix confirmed that season 5 will be its last, but the network didn’t provide an exact release date. However, the new teaser revealed that the hit series will be back sometime in 2024.

You isn’t a show that returns once a year like clockwork. There’s always been a long wait between seasons, including a year and four months hiatus between seasons 3 and 4. Filming for season 4 started in March 2022, with part 1 arriving in February 2023. If we keep the same pacing for season 5, the show could return around the second half of 2024.
