‘You’ Season 5: Potential cast, release date, plot and other details


The psychological thriller ‘You’ first hit the screens in the United States in the fall of 2018. The dark romances of gorgeous bookshop manager (and serial murderer) Joe Goldberg (Penn Badgley) captivated fans right away. With a second season already in the works, the program was transferred to Netflix, where it swiftly developed a global fanbase. The program, adapted for television from Caroline Kepnes’ trilogy of the same name, presently has four seasons, each more startling than the previous. In March 2023, Netflix announced that You will return for a fifth and final season, leaving viewers to wonder if Joe would eventually face punishment for his crimes.

For all those eagerly anticipating the fifth season of the series, following is everything we know about it.

‘You’ Season 5: Cast

Currently, we are yet to know if there would be any addition or subtraction to the already existing cast of the series. Hence, we cannot provide the exact official cast list of the next season. Moreover, we think it is safe to speculate that most of the main characters and series regulars of the show are likely to return for another season. Nevertheless, check out the potential cast of Season 5 below:

  • Penn Badgley as Joe Goldberg / Will Bettelheim / Jonathan Moore
  • Charlotte Ritchie as Katherine “Kate” Galvin-Lockwood
  • Tilly Keeper as Lady Phoebe Borehall-Blaxworth
  • Amy-Leigh Hickman as Nadia Farran
  • Ed Speleers as Rhys Montrose
  • Lukas Gage as Adam Pratt

Furthermore, it is possible that there could be an addition to the above mentioned cast of the series.

‘You’ Season 5: Plot

The specific idea of You season five is being closely guarded by the showrunners. However, Penn Badgley had a suggestion on what Joe’s last season may involve in a recent interview with the Netflix site Tudum. Badgley said that Joe’s inner dialogue will change as he has finally come to terms with the evil within himself. Additionally, since Joe is about to completely accept his actual nature, we anticipate that if Marienne were to go back to New York to demolish his opulent new life, he wouldn’t give her another chance to flee. Given that You’s fifth season will undoubtedly be the last, Joe Goldberg’s final moments will undoubtedly be memorable.

‘You’ Season 5: Release Date

The precise release date for You season five is currently unknown. Nevertheless, based on prior production timetables, we believe the fifth and final season may air as early as spring 2024. We anticipate the fifth season to include 10 episodes like the ones that came before it. It’s interesting to note that the way the episodes were distributed changed in season four.
