Netflix renews psychological drama You for final season under new showrunners

You made its debut on Lifetime in 2018 before moving to Netflix

Netflix has renewed its psychological thriller series You for a fifth and final season, which will see a change of showrunners.

Michael Foley and Justin W Lo are taking the reins from Sera Gamble, who oversaw the first four seasons and developed the series with Greg Berlanti. Gamble will continue to serve as an exec producer as she works on other projects.

Based on the book series by American author and screenwriter Caroline Kepnes, You follows Joe Goldberg, a charming, obsessive man who goes to extreme measures to insert himself into the lives of those he is obsessed with.

The Warner Bros Television series premiered on Lifetime in 2018 before moving to Netflix for its second season. Since it debuted on Netflix in December 2018, it has become one of the streaming giant’s more notable drama hits, with the show growing its audience with each subsequent season.

The fourth season was released in two batches, with the first five episodes launching on February 9 and the second a month later. The fourth season spent five weeks in Netflix’s global top 10 TV chart.

You is executive produced by Berlanti, Gamble, Sarah Schechter, Leslie Morgenstein, Gina Girolamo, John Scott, Foley, Neil Reynolds, Lo and Lee Toland Krieger.

“We are so incredibly grateful to Netflix and Sera and everyone that has been a part of this show from the beginning,” said Berlanti and Schechter.

“Sera is the most brilliant writer and partner and she will remain a key part of the You family as an executive producer. We intend to bring her every idea we can from our company for years to come. Ever since our friends at Alloy shared Caroline Kepnes’ fantastic book we have always conceived it as a five-season journey. We are excited to continue our relationship with Mike and Justin as they take over the reins as co-showrunners and prepare to bring Joe Goldberg home.”
