Release Date: Shortly after the release of “You” Season 4 Part 2, Netflix took to Twitter to confirm the return of the show for one more season. They announced that “You” Season 5, set to be the final season, will grace our screens in 2024. However, it’s worth noting that the release date may be affected by the ongoing SAG-AFTRA strike as of July 2023.
Cast: The “You” series is known for its ever-changing cast, with the only constant being Penn Badgley as Joe Goldberg. While certain characters tend to stick around for more than one season, it ultimately depends on whether they survive the series’ twisted world. The following characters from “You” Season 4 are expected to potentially make an appearance in Season 5:
- Penn Badgley as Joe Goldberg
- Tati Gabrielle as Marienne Bellamy
- Charlotte Ritchie as Kate
- Tilly Keeper as Lady Phoebe
- Amy-Leigh Hickman as Nadia
- Niccy Lin as Sophie
- Ben Wiggins as Roald Walker-Burton
- Ozioma Whenu as Blessing
However, characters like Malcolm, Simon, Gemma, Adam, and Rhys met their demise in Season 4, making it unlikely for them to return, although nothing is impossible in the world of “You.” Additionally, characters from past seasons, such as Ellie and Paco, might reappear in Season 5.
Spoilers and Storylines: Season 4 of “You” ended with Joe escaping justice and in a relationship with Kate, who helps him cover up his dark past. In a televised interview, Joe fabricates a story about faking his death due to an abusive relationship with Love, but it’s uncertain how much Kate knows about Joe’s true nature.
Intriguingly, there are hints that Joe may enter the world of politics in Season 5. Penn Badgley hinted at the possibility in an episode of “PodCrushed,” suggesting a twist in the storyline. With characters like Nadia, Marienne, and Ellie aware of Joe’s crimes, it’s possible that one or all of them will try to expose his dark secrets in the upcoming season.
Author Caroline Kepnes, who penned the “You” novels, is releasing a new book titled “For You and Only You” from Joe’s perspective, potentially providing inspiration for Season 5’s storyline.
Location: While the location for “You” Season 5 hasn’t been confirmed yet, the series has a history of shifting to new locales each season. With Joe returning to New York at the end of Season 4, it’s possible that the show may come full circle and be set in New York once again.
Trailers: As of now, there is no official “You” Season 5 trailer. Fans will need to stay patient for the first glimpse of what’s in store for Joe Goldberg in the final season of the series.
In the dark and twisted world of “You,” fans can’t wait to see what new horrors and thrills await in Season 5. With the promise of a final season in 2024, the show’s dedicated following will eagerly await more news and trailers as they emerge.
