Netflix announced today that the Penn Badgley led thriller You will return for a fifth and final season and will share additional season 5 details at a later time. Showrunner Sera Gamble who brilliantly led the series through four riveting seasons is passing the baton as she works on other projects. Gamble will continue to be an Executive Producer on the series. Executive Producers Michael Foley and Justin W. Lo will step in as Co-Showrunners.

The fourth season of Netflix’s hit series returned to the streaming platform on Thursday, February 9, and was split into two parts with part 2 released on March 9.

You took the world by storm when season one premiered on Netflix in December 2018. The series is now in its fourth season,  growing its audience over the course of its first three seasons with more hours viewed through 28 days for each season than the one before it. Season four has spent 5 weeks in the Global Top 10 English TV list, and reached the Top 10 in 90 countries.

“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. 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 Badgely. 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,” says Sera Gamble.

You became an instant sensation on Netflix with a resounding cultural impact that has grown season over season. 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,” says Peter Friedlander, Vice President of Scripted Series, Netflix, US and Canada.
