Netflix Renews 'You' for Fifth and Final Season

Netflix has today renewed its original drama series You for a fifth and final season. Series creator Sera Gamble will not serve as showrunner for the final season after helming the drama's first four seasons, with executive producers Michael Foley and Justin W. Lo set to replace her.

Based on the novels by Caroline Kepnes, the drama's fourth season stars Penn Badgley, Tati Gabrielle, Charlotte Ritchie, Tilly Keeper, Amy-Leigh Hickman, Ed Speleers and Lukas Gage.

Gamble, Foley and Lo executive produce with Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Leslie Morgenstein, Gina Girolamo, John Scott, Neil Reynolds and Lee Toland Krieger. Warner Bros. Television, A+E Studios, Berlanti Productions, Alloy Entertainment and Man Sewing Dinosaur produce.

"You became an instant sensation on Netflix with a resounding cultural impact that has grown season over season," said Peter Friedlander, Vice President of Scripted Series, Netflix, US and Canada. "We're excited - and a bit terrified - to see how it all ends for Joe Goldberg, but one thing is for sure: YOU are in for an unforgettable ending."

"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," added Gamble. "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 conclusion."

"Working with Greg and Sera on You has been a highlight of our careers and we're incredibly honored to be entrusted with the final chapter of Joe Goldberg's story," concluded Foley and Lo.
