12 Things We Already Know About "You" Season 5

    One last hurrah with friendly neighborhood serial killer Joe Goldberg.

    Season 4 of Netflix's You delivered the show's biggest twist so far. 🚨BIG SPOILERS🚨 beyond this point. If you haven't seen parts 1 and 2 of Season 4, turn around now.

    After revealing that Joe was the Eat the Rich Killer and had kidnapped Marienne, the season ended with Joe back in New York — with his original identity! — under the protection of Kate's fortune and resources.

    Thankfully, the show is returning for a fifth season. So, here's everything we know about it:

    1. Season 5 will be the show's last, wrapping up the story of Joe Goldberg once and for all.

    2. It will indeed be set in NYC, which obviously brings us back full circle to where it all started.

    3. We can probably expect Season 5 sometime in 2024, even though it will very likely be delayed because of the ongoing WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes.

    4. Co-creators Greg Berlanti and Sera Gamble agreed on the ending several years ago.

    8. Gamble has said that any character "who's not dead" could return to the show at any point in the final episodes.

    "Any character who's not dead who knows anything about Joe, it's fair game to try to exert any justice," she said to People. 

    As for any characters who are dead? "[Joe] has a really active imagination."

    9. Penn Badgley himself teased the return of some familiar faces during Netflix's TUDUM event.
