According to Nielsen, during the week of March 13th, YOU and Shadow and Bone both beat out The Mandalorian Season 3, with the former coming in first place and the latter coming in second. The Mandalorian actually came in third place in its second week of streaming on Disney+.

YOU creators Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter also weighed in, saying: “We are so incredibly grateful to Netflix and Sera and everyone that has been a part of this show from the beginning. Sera is the most brilliant writer and partner and she will remain a key part of the YOU family as an executive producer. We intend to bring her every idea we can from our company for years to come. Ever since our friends at Alloy shared Caroline Kepnes’ fantastic book we have always conceived it as a five season journey. We are excited to continue our relationship with Mike and Justin as they take over the reins as co-showrunners and prepare to bring Joe Goldberg home.”
