“Lucifer” is coming to an end, but it turns out Lucifans will have a little more time to hold on to their favorite devil, as star Tom Ellis has revealed the upcoming fifth and final season of the show will be split into two parts.
Previously, Netflix announced “Lucifer’s” last season would consist of 16 episodes. So now we know the Season 5A will have the first eight episodes and Season 5B will have the back eight.
Ellis broke the news to Kelly Clarkson, her mom, her sister and “The Kelly Clarkson Show” viewers at home on Monday. Readers can watch him spill the beans around the 4-minute mark in the video above.
While Tom shared that happy news, he didn’t share a Season 5 premiere date, something fans have been dying to know since the show was renewed in June for a final season set to launch in 2020. And now we’re waiting on two premiere dates, actually.
“Lucifer” Season 4 dropped May 8 on Netflix, close to a year after the streaming service revived the show following its cancellation at Fox. The 10-episode fourth season ended with one hell of a cliffhanger, which Ellis broke down for TheWrap here.
“Lucifer” stars Ellis in the tile role of Lucifer Morningstar, Lauren German as Det. Chloe Decker, Kevin Alejandro as Det. Dan Espinoza, D.B. Woodside as Amenadiel, Lesley-Ann Brandt as Maze, Aimee Garcia as Ella Lopez and Rachael Harris as Dr. Linda Martin. Season 4 also starred series newcomers Inbar Lavi as Eve and Graham McTavish as Father Kinley.
Joe Henderson, Ildy Modrovich, Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, Sheri Elwood and KristieAnne Reed are executive producers on the DC Entertainment series, which was developed by Tom Kapinos and is based on the characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for Vertigo.
“Lucifer” is produced for Netflix by Jerry Bruckheimer Television in association with Warner Bros. Television.
