“Lucifer” has been renewed for a fifth and final season by Netflix, the streaming service said Thursday.
Season 4 of the Tom Ellis-led drama launched May 8, close to a year after the show was revived by Netflix following its cancellation at Fox. The 10-episode fourth season ended with one hell of a cliffhanger, which Ellis broke down for TheWrap here.
The episode count for the final season is still TBD.
“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!!”
Netflix 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.”
Here’s a video of Ellis’ reaction to the news, tweeted by the show’s official Twitter account:
