Penn Badgley is sharing his thoughts about how many seasons his hit Netflix series, You, should have.

While promoting the series, Penn revealed when he feels You should end…and it’s actually sooner than you think.

If you’ve been watching the show, you know there’s a surprise casting, and twist, in the season four finale.
However, will You continue on with another season or end with the finale?
Penn told IndieWire that he feels like they do “need to do another season. It feels to me like Joe needs to get what’s coming to him, and now he has further to fall because he has all this power and wealth.”
“But of course, that’s not up to me. I don’t know where it’s going. But to me, with this concept and with this character, we always wanted to be responsible and it’s not just the kind of thing we can let keep going because it’s doing well.”
Penn continued, “I know the creators of the show always had this next season in mind as its last, should there be another one. And then it will probably be a spectacular resolution because it feels to me like something is in the works by the very end of this season.”
He did add that if season four did turn out to be You‘s last, it would still be a satisfying conclusion. However, Penn still wants more.
“You could leave it off where it is now, and it’s somewhat satisfying,” he says. “But I think what’s particularly dystopic or chilling about it is he has effectively won. You have taken this man and shown him going out on top. In that sense, I don’t think it’s the conclusion that anybody wants.”
“We’re needing to see Joe come to a conclusion. Should there be another season? That to me feels like what is happening,” Penn went on. “Now Joe has power. There’s a set of circumstances that doesn’t exist before. It’s actually a deeper change. In a way, you certainly don’t think he’s happy. That’s really terrible feeling. In a way, that reflects reality, like as long as you somehow don’t think Joe is winning. You see a man getting everything he wants but you know that it’s awful. That to me is spiritually resonant storytelling. But I think we’ve got one more in us.”
Just recently, Penn also opened up about the lack of sex scenes in the new season.
