So, will Netflix renew You for season 5? It doesn’t seem likely simply because it’s unnecessary. The fourth season does a great job of tying up loose ends and forcing Joe to confront the secrets he’s been running from since season 1. The full-circle ending brings us back to where we started, with Joe working at a book store and focusing his attention on one woman. The only difference is Kate accepts Joe for who he is, dark past included.
It’s important to note that series creator Sera Gamble previously teased the idea of doing a fifth season during an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. At the time, she promised that You wouldn’t end until the story was complete. Maybe she was trying to throw off fans ahead of the season 4 finale.
Of course, there could always be more story line to explore. For example, another season could explore Joe’s alter ego as Rhys. Or it could focus on Marienne seeking revenge against Joe. But to us, the story feels complete as it is. And at the risk of becoming redundant, Netflix should consider ending on a high note.
