Netflix has announced that “You” will come to an end with its fifth season.
The show, which stars Penn Badgley, has been a major hit for the streaming giant since its debut in 2018. The announcement also came with some information about the behind-the-scenes changes.
Co-showrunner Sara Gamble will be stepping down after serving as co-showrunner for the first four seasons, but will remain on as an executive producer, according to Deadline. Gamble and Greg Berlanti developed the show based on the Alloy books by Caroline Kepnes.
Executive producers Michael Foley and Justin W. Lo, who have been on the series since season one and season two, will now be taking over as co-showrunners. Berlanti and producing partner Sarah Schechter praised Gamble as “the most brilliant writer and partner” in a statement.
The show’s creators had always planned for “You” to run for five seasons, and Berlanti and Schechter revealed that they intend to continue working with Gamble on future projects.
As for the show’s storyline, the end of season four marked a full circle moment for Joe Goldberg, who returned to New York City with rich widow Kate – the city where the series first began in season one.
