Lucifer will return for Season 5, Netflix has officially announced.
The show, which hails from Warner Bros. TV, is based on comic book characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg. It follows the original fallen angel after he’s given up his throne in the underworld for the underbelly of Los Angeles, where he helps the cops to punish criminals. He is joined by Lesley-Ann Brandt as devoted, demonic ally Maze, Lauren German as LAPD detective Chloe, Rachael Harris as Lucifer’s therapist, and DB Woodside as Lucifer’s brother, trying to persuade him to return to Hell.
Resurrected after Fox canceled it following its third season, Lucifer rose again on Netflix last month. Season 4 saw Lucifer face a new challenge: Eve, the original sinner herself, who joins Lucifer in Los Angeles for unknown reasons and sparks an identity crisis.
“This hugely fun fourth outing for the devil-turned-crime-solver is Lucifer at the best it can be,” we wrote in our review.
Fans evidently agreed, because the series has repeatedly been in Netflix UK’s list of most popular shows. Now, within a month of Season 4’s debut, Netflix has ordered a fifth run, which will also be the show’s final season.
“Thanks to the lucifans, Lucifer’s story will come to an end the way it should: the fifth and final season is coming to Netflix,” the streaming giant tweeted this morning.
“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. …The best is yet to come!!” said exec producers Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich.
