Lucifer is coming to an end. But it’s doing so on its own terms.
The series about the devil, who now lives in Los Angeles, debuted its fourth season in May, and left fans reeling on a major cliffhanger.
The last time the series did that — at the end of season 3 — it was cancelled by Fox. Luckily, Netflix decided to pick it up following a fierce fan campaign.
Although Netflix has now announced that it, too, is cancelling the show, producers will be allowed to wrap up the storyline in their own way as Lucifer has been given a fifth and 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,” co-showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich said in a statement. “Most importantly, we want to thank the fans for their incredible passion and support. The best is yet to come!!”
The show’s lead actor and titular character, Tom Ellis, reacted to the news in a video shared by the official Lucifer Twitter account.
The final season of Lucifer is expected next year.
