Fans of “Lucifer” are getting another season, but it will be the final one of the series. Netflix confirmed “Lucifer: Season 5” on social media today, telling fans, “We are so incredibly thankful to Netflix for resurrecting our show last season and now letting us finish the story of Lucifer on our terms. …The best is yet to come!”
“Lucifer” moved to Netflix after its third season, after FOX canceled the popular series. A #SaveLucifer movement on social media helped to resurrect the show, and the fourth season was popular enough on Netflix to renew the project for season five.
It’s a bittersweet moment for fans, they get another season of Lucifer drama, but they will have to say goodbye at the end. Still, new episodes are better than no episodes, and fans on social media seem pretty happy with Netflix’s decision to keep the show for season five.
The series stars Tom Ellis, who plays the role of Lucifer in the show. In the series, Lucifer works with the local LAPD to arrest Earth’s criminals. Warner Bros. Television produces the series, with Jerry Bruckheimer Television.
The show is based on the characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth, and Mike Dringenberg.
On the official Netflix Twitter account, the company told followers, “thanks to the lucifans, #lucifer’s story will come to an end the way it should: the fifth and final season is coming to @netflix.”
Netflix stopped short of announcing a premiere date for the fifth season, but you have plenty of time to catch up on season 4, which just launched on Netflix in May. We will most likely get a premiere date and a few teaser trailers once the show goes into production, which could be later this year, or early next year.
