Lucifer renewed for fifth and final season at Netflix


Lucifer is going to get one more season and then it will be calling it a day.

TV Line has reported that Lucifer will get a season 5, and it will end with a planned ending. “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!”

No episode count for season 5 has been announced as of yet. When Netflix originally gave the 10-episode order for season 4, Henderson and Modovich said in multiple interviews that season 4 had been envisioned on Fox as having two halves, with a break in the middle. The season 4 on Netflix was the plan for the first half of the Fox season, and should they get season 5, it would be what had been planned for the back half. The showrunners reaffirmed that recently in an interview with TV Line, saying they knew the opening of season 5 “literally since we started Season 4.”

No word as of yet as to when we can expect season 5, but as season 4 debuted on May 8, a similar date in 2020 doesn’t seem like an unreasonable target.
