Netflix will officially be bringing back Lucifer for a sixth and final (and they mean it this time!) season.
Luficer was cancelled by Fox after three seasons, but then went on to be saved by streaming giant Netflix, who renewed it for a fourth and what was previously thought to be a fifth and final season.
However, the popularity of Lucifer lead to some pervasive rumors that the show would perhaps be coming back for a sixth season — rumors that only seemed to gain legitimacy after leading star and titular Lord of Hell himself Tom Ellis closed on a deal that would bring him back for a sixth season — even though, at the time, one hadn’t yet been announced.
It looks like those rumors weren’t just rumors after all, as the supernatural show looks to be coming back for a sixth and final season.
Check out the announcement from the official Lucifer Twitter account below, which promises that this is truly the FINAL final season!

Lucifer is based on the comic book characters created by Neil Gaiman for DC’s Vertigo Imprint, and stars Tom Ellis, Lauren German, Rachael Harris, DB Woodside, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Aimee Garcia, Tricia Helfer, Scarlett Estevez and Kevin Alejandro.
The series is a mix of dark comedy, police procedural and supernatural love story and follows the charming and devilishly handsome Lord of Hell himself, Lucifer Morningstar, as he helps LAPD detective Chloe Decker find and take down criminals.
Lucifer season 5 debuts on Netflix on August 21. All four seasons are currently available to stream.
