It seems Joe Goldberg’s days are numbered, as the popular Netflix series You is set to end with its upcoming fifth season. The announcement has just arrived via Twitter from the official Netflix account, which also confirms that the wait won’t be as long as what Stranger Things are facing as the release is set for next year.
The reveal might not be too surprising as even its main star, Gossip Girl alum Penn Badgley, has openly talked bout the fifth season being the perfect time to end it. What is surprising though is that the series is losing its showrunner and creator. Executive producers Michael Foley and Justin W. Lo are taking over show running duties from Sera Gamble.
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 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 conclusionSera Gamble
You explores the story of Joe Goldberg, who has a curious way of showing his affection. It’ll be interesting to see how they wrap up this series and if Joe has to face the consequences of all his actions throughout the first four seasons.
