Netflix just confirmed YOU season 5 with rough release date

Contains spoilers

We don't know about you but we were counting down the days until You season four part two dropped on Netflix (it was 9th March btw). Was Joe going to be able to bring Rhys Montrose to justice? And what would happen with Joe's relationship with Kate?

As this season of You draws to a close, it's got us thinking is this the last time we'll see Joe? Or is there going to be a season five of one of our favourite shows? Here's everything we know about a potential season five of You, from expected release date to cast and more.

Has You season 5 been confirmed?

Yep! On 24th March 2023, Netflix officially confirmed a fifth and *FINAL* season of You. Joe Goldberg is back one last time. In a tweet, the Netflix UK account wrote, "NEWS: Joe Goldberg will return for the fifth and ~final~ season of YOU in 2024."

Ahead of the release of season three of You, the show's co-creator Sera Gamble told The Hollywood Reporter there was scope for multiple more seasons of You. "I am not scared at all of saying that we definitely could follow Joe for several more seasons."

Who will be in the cast of season 5 of You?

Nothing has been announced about the cast yet, except the fact Penn Badgley will definitely be back as Joe.

You season 4 essentially introduced a whole new cast for Joe in London, leaving behind the likes of Love and Ryan in season three. However, it feels like season four wraps up the storylines for most of the new characters - Lady Phoebe (Tilly Keeper) has found her new calling in life in Asia and Nadia (Amy-Leigh Hickman) is now in jail, so it's unlikely either of those will return. Although we could definitely see a plot in which Nadia hunts Joe down and exacts her revenge.

And it appears Amy-Leigh Hickman is keen to reprise her role as Nadia, telling Digital Spy she would "love" to return for a potential season five. She said: "I would love to come back and play her again."

Marienne (played by Tati Gabrielle) makes an appearance in season four, so she could be back for season five too, although given how things ended with Marienne, it's unlikely she'll ever want to be within 10 miles of Joe.

We can assume Kate (Charlotte Ritchie) will return as Joe's girlfriend now they live in New York.

What will season 5 of You be about?

Right now, it's hard to say what a potential fifth season of You would focus on, however we do have some ideas.

Season four ended with Joe and Kate living in New York, with Joe having evaded any accusation of murder and planning to 'help' the world alongside Kate.

If season five were to happen, we would expect it to potentially follow them with their peaceful and happy lives in New York, that is until Joe murders someone else of course.

You fans have a number of ideas they think the plot could follow, and there's one particular theory we're pretty invested in. Many fans think Nadia (Amy-Leigh Hickman), Ellie (Jenna Ortega) and Marienne (Tati Gabrielle) could team up to take Joe down once and for all. One person tweeted: "I need a Nadia, Ellie and Marienne team up to bring Joe down in season five, I just know they can do it."

Another said: "Ellie, Marienne and Nadia must team up in season five so they can finally take Joe down for good! #YouNetflix."

Now, whilst we can't really see Marienne being too keen to have anything to do with Joe, she just got her daughter back after all, we can definitely see a world in which Ellie and Nadia team up to plot revenge. Once Nadia gets out of jail that is.

We know Amy-Leigh is keen to return for another season and Jenna Ortega revealed she wanted to return for season four, however couldn't commit due to Wednesday scheduling conflicts. So there's definitely potential for this team up.

Is there a release date for season 5 of You?

Kind of. When Netflix confirmed it was happening, they announced a 2024 release date. Not long to go, then!

Season four of You was confirmed in October 2021, with filming beginning in March 2022. Part one was released in February 2023 and the second half in March 2023. If season five were to follow a similar pattern we could probably expect to see it released in summer 2024.

Is there a trailer for You season 5?

Right now there's no trailer for You season five, but here's the trailer for season four.
