Lucifer Fans Are in For a Devilish Treat: Netflix Has Extended the Fifth and Final Season
Lucifer may be ending, but it’s getting a hell of a send-off! Only July 26, Netflix announced that the series’ fifth and final season has been extended; instead of the previously revealed 10 episodes, season five will conclude with 16 episodes. While it doesn’t rank up to the supernatural crime drama’s final season on Fox — which concluded with 26 episodes — it’s six more hours for fans to enjoy the crime-solving adventures of Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis), and LAPD detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German). Who wouldn’t want more of that?
The series originally aired on Fox but was canceled in May 2018 after three seasons. The passionate outcry from fans moved Netflix to pick it up for a fourth season the following month, and then renew it for its fifth and final season on June 6. This will bring the series total to 77 episodes, which will make Lucifer one of the longest-running Netflix original series, between the recently concluded Orange Is the New Black (91 episodes) and House of Cards (73 episodes).
Season five of Lucifer is still in early production, so stay tuned for more information as filming progresses. See you in hell, Lucifans!
