Just under a month after Netflix resurrected Lucifer for a fourth season, the streaming service is granting fans wishes by bringing the sinfully entertaining series back for a fifth season. Starring Tom Ellis as the charismatic fallen angel Lucifer Morningstar, the series charts his exploits helping the LAPD, and preventing the occasional apocalypse. The renewal is somewhat bittersweet as while it's great that the cliffhanger ending of season four will be answered, the fifth season will bring the series to an end.
In a shared statement, executive producers Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson had this to say about the final season;
“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. Most importantly, we want to thank the fans for their incredible passion and support. The best is yet to come!!”
In a separate statement, a Netflix spokesperson added;
“We’re thrilled that Lucifer fans around the world have embraced this series on Netflix, and we can’t wait to give them the big finish they’ve all been waiting for.”
After three seasons, Fox canceled Lucifer last May much to the frustration of fans all over the world, and they made a big noise. The producers of the series were hopeful that they could shop the show to another network or streaming service, and a fourth season was eventually picked up by Netflix. Unfortunately, due to Fox's deal with Amazon for the first three seasons, we'll have to wait a while longer before all of Lucifer is available on UK Netflix. The final season will once again consist of 10 episodes, and production is expected to start later this year for a Spring 2020 launch. You can stream Lucifer season 4 right now on Netflix, seasons 1-3 can currently be found of Amazon Prime.
