For four seasons, America has fallen in love with Joe, the creepiest show stalker and hitman, played by Penn Badgley on Netflix You. The show took an unexpected turn in season 4 where Joe was less of a stalker and more a stalkee, although that didn’t stop him from indulging in more criminal behavior. Season 5 will probably be the last, but will Joe finally get his comeuppance. The guy playing him certainly thinks he should.
“It feels to me like we have to do another season. I feel like Joe needs to get what he deserves and now he needs to keep falling because he has all this power and wealth,” Badgley said IndieWire. “But of course that’s not my fault. I don’t know where to go. But for me, with this concept and with this character, we always wanted to be responsible, and it’s not just something that we can keep going because it’s going well.”
Badgley predicted that the show’s creators have a “spectacular resolution” in store, although of course he doesn’t yet know what that might be. He wonders if Joe could change – or if not, he could finally face music, in some way. However, he believes the show may even end now.
“You could leave it where it is now, and it’s reasonably satisfying,” Badgley said. “But I think what’s particularly dystopian or terrifying about it is that he effectively won. They took this man and showed him how to get to the top. In that sense, I don’t think it’s the conclusion anyone wants.”
Whatever happens, Badgley – who could have starred in a different timeline breaking Bad – probably no more love scenes.
