How Long Will Joe Goldberg’s Rampage Go Unchecked?

Goodbye, You.

More seasons are not always a given where Netflix series are concerned and we’ve all learned this the hard way. You is certainly one of the most popular Netflix series, even though You season 4 has received some pretty mixed responses, to say the least. Psychological thriller stories can only be stretched so far, you know?

The show isn’t following the source material at this point (at least not to my knowledge), so how many more seasons can Joe (Penn Badgley) run from his murderous habits? That’s the question lingering in everyone’s minds after season 4.

Has You been renewed for season 5?

You season 4 changed the pace of the series and gave us more to chew on. Everything that was revealed in season 4, part 2 ultimately confirmed all the fan theories. Joe was indeed obsessed with Rhys (Ed Speleers), but he had never actually met him. The final batch of episodes for season 4 took us on a journey that tried doing way too much. It wasn’t an unbearable batch of episodes, but it could’ve surprised us a bit more and taken different risks. And personally, I don’t care to deal with Kate (Charlotte Ritchie)’s character for another season; I’m sorry, but Joe and Kate have zero romantic chemistry.

Due to the popularity of the show and the fact that the season has yet to leave the top 10 on Netflix, the platform has renewed You for a fifth and final season. Yes, that’s right, we’ll be seeing more murder and mayhem for one more season. And fingers crossed that Ed Speleers comes back because he practically carried season 4 on his shoulders (I said what I said). Unfortunately, I don’t have much more in the way of news regarding the renewal.

We will likely see the final season in 2024 or later. Until then, you can watch or rewatch season 4 of You on Netflix right now.
