Will there be A you Season 5 on Netflix?

As of season 4, the premiere day of part 2, Netflix has not officially green-lit yet you Season 5. But that doesn’t mean the series won’t be renewed. you has been a hit for Netflix since it premiered on the streaming platform in 2018, and since season 4 was not presented as the final season, there is still hope for a continuation.

told showrunner Sara Gamble The Hollywood Reporter‘s TV top 5 podcast that should the show be revamped, there IS an idea ready to go. “We have an idea for season five that we are excited about. It was never anyone’s intention to run these into the ground. When we’re done, we’re done. And we’ll wrap it up,’ she said. “Even in the early talks with Penn, there was no intention of releasing episodes forever; it’s to feel like we’ve told the full story. And while I feel tonally, we’re very different and we’re not trying to sell Joe as some sort of straight-faced hero. This is a show that’s in the tradition of these single lead shows with a guy who keeps doing bad things. The great thing about it is that when his arc is complete, so is the show.

On an episode of Josh Horowitz’s Happy Sad Confused podcast, Badgley said that if the show were to return for Season 5, he thinks it could be its last. “I signed a six-year contract right at the gate. So they could do two more if they wanted,” he explained. “I think if there is going to be another season, I think it will only be one. I think – this is my understanding, but I don’t know, I really don’t know. But I know everyone involved, top to bottom, no one wants this show to get tired.

So what could happen in another batch you episodes? We have a few ideas.

What can A you Season 5 out?

Since Season 4 ended with Joe sharing (at least part of) his damning truth with Kate, followed by the two of them going to New York, clearing Joe’s name, and taking over Kate’s father’s company and empire, Season 5 would likely show that it couple tries to “change the world” as the killer formerly known as Jonathan Moore adjusts to life as Joe Goldberg.

Perhaps Joe is looking for his son, Henry, who is nowhere to be seen in the closing scenes of Season 4. We may learn more about Nadia, who framed Joe for Eddie’s murder and ended up in prison. For all we know, Rhys could return. There’s always a chance that Marienne – who narrowly escaped Joe’s clutches and returned to her daughter Juliette – will come back into the picture. And Joe actually told us he hasn’t killed his killing spree yet, so season 5 has the potential for even more kills. In a dream season 5 we would see the few people alive to tell the story of Joe Goldberg – Dr. Nicky (John Stamos), Ellie (Jenna Ortega), Marienne (Tati Gabrielle), Nadia (Amy-Leigh Hickman), etc. – getting together to finish him off Endgame-style.

In an interview with The cut, Gamble assured fans that an end game is planned for Joe. “We talk about it even before shooting a frame of the show. We have a goal, but we haven’t filled in everything about it yet,” she said. And while Joe’s death is on the table, one thing we’ll never see in the series is Joe Goldberg’s redemption.

“This is not a show about an evil man redeeming himself. In the writers’ room we talked a lot about the redemption tours you see in the press when someone does something bad and it goes public, and then they have to apologize in order to get on with their lives,” she explained. “There was a lot of discussion about whether people can change. It’s one of those fundamental questions in life. But we would never seriously consider that for Joe. We don’t actually believe you can make up for a bunch of kills by chasing another killer. It doesn’t work that way.”

Decider will update this piece when there are more details on it you Season 5 has been released. Until then, make sure you experience the sheer chaos of Season 4.
