The popular psychological-thriller series, "You," which features the story of a notorious serial killer, is set to return to Netflix for its fifth and final season.

The streaming platform has announced the renewal of the show with new co-showrunners taking over from the creator, Sera Gamble, who has decided to step down.

Penn Badgley will reprise his role as the infamous Joe Goldberg, who may finally face the consequences of his actions.

The show, which was originally developed by Greg Berlanti and Sera Gamble based on Caroline Kepnes' Alloy books, has been a hit since its debut.

While Sera Gamble is stepping down as showrunner after serving in that role for the first four seasons, she will continue to be an executive producer for the final season.

Michael Foley and Justin W. Lo, who have been involved with the show since its inception, will take over as co-showrunners.

According to Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter, Sera Gamble is an exceptional writer and partner, and they intend to work with her on future projects.

They also stated that the plan was always to tell Joe's story in five seasons, and they are excited to see how the final season will conclude the twisted journey of Joe Goldberg.

Peter Friedlander, Netflix's VP of Scripted Series, commented on the show's resounding cultural impact, and the anticipation of the final season.

He expressed both excitement and terror at the thought of the show's conclusion, assuring viewers that they are in for an unforgettable ending.

Sera Gamble, who expressed her pride in the show's success, and her privilege in passing the torch to the new showrunners, also teased the upcoming final season, promising viewers a "delightfully twisted conclusion."
