Lucifer’s fifth season may not be its final one after all! The devilishly entertaining urban fantasy show is currently in talks to extend its run on Netflix.
It’s been a quite a wild ride for Lucifans.
The popular urban fantasy show was cancelled after three seasons on Fox, surprising the actors on the show and devastating fans worldwide. However, that cancellation galvanized the fan base and they rallied to save the show. Their social media presence got the attention of Netflix, who responded to the call and saved Luciferby giving it a 10-episode fourth season, which premiered in May of 2019.
After a somewhat middling third season on Fox, the show’s fourth season garnered high praise from fans and critics alike, which led Netflix to go ahead and renew Lucifer for what was supposed to be a fifth and final season. Though the original order was for 10 episodes — similar to the fourth season — Netflix then announced that the final season would give fans 16 episodes instead — ample time to say their final farewell to their favorite Lord of Hell.
However, it looks like fans of Lucifer may not have to prepare themselves to say their final goodbyes after all, as both TV Line and Deadline have reported that there are currently talks between Warner Bros. and Netflix to once again extend the show’s run past its fifth season. Neither have yet commented or confirmed those rumors.
Lucifer is based on the comic book character created by Neil Gaiman for DC’s Vertigo Imprint, follows the charismatic and handsome Lord of Hell himself, Lucifer Morningstar, as he helps LAPD detective Chloe Decker take down criminals.
The show stars Tom Ellis as Lucifer, Lauren German as Detective Chloe Decker, Rachael Harris as Lucifer’s psychologist Dr. Linda Martin, DB Woodside as Lucifer’s brother and fellow angel Amenadiel, Lesley-Ann Brandt as Mazikeen, Aimee Garcia as forensic scientist Ella Lopez, and Kevin Alejandro as Detective Daniel “Dan” Espinoza.
