Penn Badgley really wants You season five to be its last, as he thinks it's time to say goodbye to Joe Goldberg.
The Netflix series is now four seasons deep, after heading from New York to London with a lot of twists and turns along the way.
While Netflix has not announced a season five yet, it is highly expected to be coming, especially due to the way season four finished.
Also, ahead of the release of season three of You, the show's co-creator Sera Gamble told The Hollywood Reporter that there could be several more seasons.
She said: "I am not scared at all of saying that we definitely could follow Joe for several more seasons."
Certainly sounds like it is likely, but You star Badgley is hoping that season five will actually be the last we see of You's characters.
Speaking to IndieWire, the actor 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."
He 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."
The Gossip Girl actor then went on to say how You turns 'some of our low-key toxic tropes about love and relationships and turning them on their head' in a rather 'disturbing' way.
He added: "I think maybe where it’s changing is this season, you realize it’s not about anyone else. You realize it’s about him. I think it draws you into a definition of ‘who I am and what do I want, and can I change? Is that possible? What have I done?’
"And so I think that’s maybe where we’re at by the end.
"To me, it feels like this is Part 1 of Joe’s climax. Should there be a next season, that will be Part 2. That’s what it feels like to me."
