They added a video to the post with Joe’s iconic line of “Hello, You,” being said over and over again, along with clips from the show.
The screen went black and ended with him saying: “Goodbye, You.”
“The fifth and final season coming in 2024,” the video read.
Penn Badgley is set to reprise his role of Joe, the serial killer who has gotten away with numerous murders.
The show is based on the book series by Caroline Kepnes.
Deadline reported that showrunners, Greg Berlanti and Sera Gamble, are stepping down, and will not led season five.
Sera is leaving to focus on other projects, but will remain on as an executive producer.
However, the Netflix series executive producers, Michael Foley and Justin W. Lo, will now serve as co-showrunners.
Greg and Sarah Schechter of Berlanti Productions told the publication that they “always intended on telling Joe’s story in five seasons.”
“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,” they said.
You started out on Lifetime, after Netflix originally passed on it.
But, with low ratings on the cable channel, the streaming network picked it up and saw massive success.
You fans took to Twitter to react to the news.
“I’m crying literally like literal tears are building up in my eyes,” wrote one fan.
“Cobra Kai, Stranger Things, Flash etc…. and now YOU. All my shows coming to an end,” another added, along with crying emojis.
A third added: “I don’t know how to handle these emotions right now aagshshdj.”
“What am I going to watch after this is over?!” asked a You lover.
That that, someone replied: “My life literally makes no sense anymore the second I am done with the fifth part.”
“I will miss this show so much. Can’t wait to see the ending though, hope Joe gets what he deserves,” said a sad fan.
“This is bittersweet. I’m glad there will be a new season, but I don’t want it to end. I love this show!” commented a Twitter user.
Some fans though are happy to see it go, after what they called a “disastrous season four.”
IS THAT YOU, JOE?
Season four was split up into two parts- four episodes airing in February and the last four in March.
After Joe fled suburbia to chase after his latest obsession, Marienne Bellamy (Tati Gabrielle), he changed his name and appearance.
The serial killer had gotten into a fight with his wife, Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti), and ultimately killed her in the end.
He dropped off their son, Henry, with a neighbor, and never looked back.
However, some fans were disappointed because the latest season did not follow the same structure as the three before it.
Joe, now Jonathan Moore, was a professor in England, and was trying to reinvent his life, all while seeking out Marienne.
He made a bunch of friends and even forgot about his latest pursual when he met Kate Galvin (Charlotte Ritchie).
She introduced him to her friends, and they spent weekends together at Lady Phoebe’s estate.
Jonathan seemed to have turned his life around, as he hadn’t committed any murders, that he knew of, but Rhys Moore (Ed Speleers), the man running for Mayor, was threatening to expose his past.
When the show returned for part two in early March, it took a completely different turn.
Fans found out that Jonathan actually had Marienne trapped in a huge glass box, but he had no memory of it.
Rhys turned out to be a part of his imagination, although there was a real Rhys Moore, and unleashed the dark side within him again.
Jonathan couldn’t remember that he had been the one who was killing all of the people around him, instead of thinking it was Rhys.
Marienne was freed by one of Jonathan’s university students, who found her in the abandoned building.
She is the only of Joe’s victim that has made it out alive, and vowed get her revenge on him.
In the end, Jonathan left London with Kate and they made a new life for themselves in America, after he tried to jump off a bridge.
He was back to Joe and had shaved his beard and cut his hair.
Although the darkness in him seemed to be at bay, the menacing look he gave the camera at the end, told a different story.
Fans will not have to wait too long to find out Joe’s fate, as the final season will air in 2024.
