I really enjoyed season 1 of Netflix’s You. It was a unique and exciting show at the time. When season 2 began it felt redundant after a few episodes. Some of the zest was gone so I abandoned it after 2 or 3 episodes. This year I decided to revisit some shows I’ve abandoned and You was on that list. I binged watched season 2 and 3 before catching up to season 4 part 1. I’m afraid the reason I abandoned You in season 2 still held true. Each season subsequent to season 1 felt like the same plot in a different setting. The new elements sprinkled in didn’t always feel like enough to carry the show season to season. There were some cool characters added but the overall assessment was a step away from the new fresh feel from season 1 was gone. Season 4 really lost it in my opinion and was a task in completing something I started because I didn’t want to leave it unfinished.
Hopefully there isn’t a season 5. How did you enjoy You? Do you want to see another season?

Totally agree! It reminds me the Midrash lessons with grandpa… the same story in different place with some additional people. No season five will be way too much.
I also felt the same with walking dead after a while…
