You has been renewed for a fifth season, though Netflix has revealed it will be the series’ final chapter.
The streaming service confirmed the news via their TUDUM website, confirming that the final season would be released in 2024.
Executive producers Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter disclosed that the series was always conceived as a “five-season journey”, though there will be a change in personnel with creator Sera Gamble stepping down from her role as showrunner.
She will be replaced by Michael Foley and Justin W Lo, who have both written for the show since the first and second season respectively.
“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,” said Gamble in a statement.
“Making the show alongside our writers, producers, directors, cast and crew has been an honour and ridiculously fun. 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.”
The series has been a commercial success ever since its debut in 2018, and Vice President of Scripted Series, Peter Friedlander, said he couldn’t wait for audiences to experience the home stretch.
“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,” he said. “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.”
You seasons 1-4 are streaming on Netflix. Season 5 will premiere in 2024.
