LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: 'Gossip Girl' alum, Penn Badgley recently starred in Netflix's 'You' Season 4 part 2 and the least to say is it was nail-bitingly good. Although the series is a grand success and receives tons of love from fans globally, Badgley has been very vocal about him having an issue regarding "people loving his character" as he claims the character is a psychotic murderer who goes around killing his love interest. However, fans might not be very happy with Penn Badgley's current decision of possibly concluding the series with the upcoming season. 

Regardless, in case you haven't watched the fourth season yet, the series chose a clan of new actors except for the main stars, Penn Badgley who returns as Joe Goldberg, and his love interest, Tati Gabrielle who reprises her role as Marienne Bellamy. The new cast features Charlotte Ritchie, Tilly Keeper, Amy-Leigh Hickman, Ed Speleers, and Lukas Gage joining the main cast. Furthermore, Victoria Pedretti and Elizabeth Lail returned as their characters for a dream sequence.

Netflix 'You' near the endgame

Badgley has been playing Joe Goldberg on 'You' since 2018, and the furor around the show and its protagonist – namely that fans can’t help but openly lust after him despite his murderous tendencies – seems to grow exponentially with each passing season. In fact, the actor just teased when he thinks the Greg Berlanti and Sera Gamble series may finish off.

"I know what Greg pitched me a few years back as what he thought was the right way to end," he told British GQ in an interview out March 14. "If there's another one, it's going to be, I think, a grand finale."

Joe suffers from a hero complex

Season 4 saw Badgley's Joe in a different light and people are seeing him in the 'knight in shining armor light.

"It has to go to this place for five episodes where it's like, 'Is he going to become a hero as we've all wanted him to?' It doesn't make any sense when Joe becomes a hero," he admitted. "This is the only place the show could have ever gone and remain relevant, remain responsible, remain intelligent, remain sensitive, but true." Badgley added of Season 4, "The whole thing has been building towards seeing Joe in a different light, truly, which we've never ever done before."
