We've got some good news and some bad news for fans of Netflix's hit thriller series You.
The good news is there's going to be a fifth season, as confirmed by the streamer today (24 March).
The bad news is it'll be the final run, meaning we'll have to say goodbye to Penn Badgley as the prolific serial killer Joe Goldberg.
As well as the bittersweet update, Netflix revealed when we can expect the last hurrah to reach our screens.
Taking to Twitter, it wrote: "Brace yourself for Joe Goldberg's final chapter. You will return for a fifth and final season in 2024!"
As reported by Variety, season five is set to have a change of showrunners, with executive producers Michael Foley and Justin W Lo taking over from Sera Gamble.
Gamble originally created the show alongside Greg Berlanti, and it's proved to be a huge success with audiences throughout its four-season run.
In a statement shared with the outlet, she said: "As I step back from day-to-day showrunning to focus on new projects, I’m immensely grateful to co-creator and all-around genius Greg Berlanti, Caroline Kepnes, my friends at Berlanti Productions and Alloy Entertainment, and our steadfast partners at Warner Bros and Netflix.
"Making the show alongside our writers, producers, directors, cast and crew has been an honor and ridiculously fun. And I feel lucky to have worked with an artist as gifted and thoughtful as Penn Badgley.
"I'm proud of what we’ve all accomplished and feel privileged to pass the torch. I’m excited to watch and support the ‘You’ team as they bring Joe Goldberg’s journey to its delightfully twisted conclusion."
Fans have been reacting to the news, with one writing on Twitter: "Damn season 4 just came out and season 5 already getting announced? Not complaining tho this show is fire."
Another said: "I'm really unhappy with the fact that the 5th season will be the final one, but I'm glad that we will see Joe for another 10 episodes.
"Congrats for one of the greatest Netflix shows!"
And a third added: "The 'Fifth' made me happy but at the same time 'Final' broke my heart!"
Netflix's update arrives after Badgley himself expressed his hopes that season five would be the last.
Speaking to IndieWire, the Gossip Girl star said: "It feels to me like we 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."
