Well. Whoa, what a season finale.
Season 4 of You was released on Netflix in two halves. The first presented Joe Goldberg in a more redeeming light and took the audience on a standard whodunit path. At the same time, the second it has surprised everyone with a massive plot twist that irrevocably altered our serial killer protagonist.
Now the question is, where does this leave the show going forward? Is there any chance of a season five, and if not, has the story concluded?
This is everything we know at the moment.
Is There A Season 5 Of YOU?
The season 4 conclusion certainly sets up an intriguing storyline, but Netflix has not yet confirmed whether or not the program will return for a fifth season.
Joe’s fictional counterpart, politician/author Rhys Montrose, urged him to give in to his murderous impulses in the second half of the fourth season.
Joe’s split personality emerged after he smashed his skull on the wall while trying to free Marianne from one of his infamous glass cages.
Joe was at first resistant to listening to the Thoughts in his head; he even attempted suicide as a means of atonement for his wrongdoings.
Joe jumped over a London bridge, drowned, and was revived in the hospital. Once Kate Galvin paid him a visit, he decided to start over and leave his past behind.
After taking over her father’s company and transforming it into a charitable organisation, Joe and Kate were seen in the season finale giving an interview in New York City.
In the final scene, Joe looks out over New York and sees a reflection of his alter ego, Rhys, grinning back at him.
The YOU Season 5 Cast And Crew
Netflix has not confirmed YOU season five, but showrunner Sera Gamble has said the creative team has a concept for the next edition.
She also suggested that New York, where Joe resides at the end of Season 4 and where he initially lived in Season 1, could be the setting for the upcoming season.
“We have an idea for season five that we’re excited about,” Gamble told The Hollywood Reporter’s TV’s Top 5 podcast.
“You’ll know what the next season would be when you see the end of this season. We tell you what the idea is,” she added.
It was never anyone’s plan to run this one into the ground,” Gamble continued, indicating that the show’s end is near. We will finish when it is finished. We’ll wrap things up and get them ready to go.
“Even in the early conversations with Penn [Badgley], the idea was not to crank out episodes forever; it’s to feel like we have told the complete story.”
Badgley, who plays Joe, has also suggested that the fifth season (which has not yet been confirmed) may be the show’s final.
Badgley admitted that he had a contract for two more films, but he recommended that they simply film one more to prevent the series from becoming “weary.”
“I signed a six-year contract right out the gate. So they could do two more if they wanted,” he said on the Happy Sad Confused podcast with Josh Horowitz.
“I think if there’s another season, I think it’s only going to be one. I think—this is my understanding, but I don’t know, I really don’t know,” he added.
Badgley continued: “I know that everybody concerned, from the top on down, nobody wants this show to become tired, because that’s when Joe is the most disgusting. That’s when the show stops having the intelligence that it has.”

YOU Season 5: The Hunt For A New Victim
Season 5 will likely follow the couple as they try to “change the world” as the murderer formerly known as Jonathan Moore adjusts to life as Joe Goldberg after Season 4 ended with Joe sharing (at least some part of his damning truth) with Kate, followed by their moving to New York, clearing Joe’s name, and taking over Kate’s dad’s company and empire.
Maybe Joe will try to locate his missing son Henry, who was last seen before the end of Season 4. Perhaps we’ll get more background on Nadia, the woman Joe falsely accused of murdering Eddie. There is still a chance that Rhys will come back. Marianne, who narrowly escaped Joe’s clutches and returned to her daughter Juliette, may reenter the picture.
The season 5 premiere hinted at even more murders because Joe admitted he hadn’t conquered his murderous urge. Season 5 would be perfect if Dr. Nicky (John Stamos), Ellie (Jenna Ortega), Marianne (Tati Gabrielle), Nadia (Amy-Leigh Hickman), etc., the few survivors of Joe Goldberg, banded together to kill him Endgame-style.
The Cut interviewed Gamble, who reassured readers that Joe does have a conclusion in store. We’ve been discussing it long before we even started filming the series. We have a goal in mind, but not all the details,” she explained. Even though Joe’s demise is possible, Joe Goldberg will never be forgiven in the show.
“This is not a show about a bad man who redeems himself. In the writers’ room, we talked a lot about the redemption tours that you see in the press when somebody does something bad and it becomes public, and then they have to apologize to be able to resume their lives,” she explained.
“There was a lot of debate about whether people can change. It’s one of those fundamental questions in life. But we never would seriously consider that for Joe. We don’t actually believe that you can make up for a bunch of murders by hunting down another murderer. That’s not how it works.”
