Lucifer set to meet Lucifans in Hell for Fifth and Final Season
Well, it seems that the most beloved fallen angel Lucifer shall rise one last time again, for the fifth and final season, at Netflix, ending the series in the way it should.
The series featuring Tom Ellis in the lead role was cancelled by Fox, after three successful seasons. The show was revived by Netflix with a 10 episode Season Four.
The announcement comes through a tweet on the show’s official Twitter page, along with a video of an enthusiastic Ellis (Lucifer) screaming for joy. The video ends with Ellis saying “I’ll see you in Hell.”
The tweet reads, “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,” as reported by the TVLine.
It was also reported that the shows executive producers Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich have also thanked Netflix for allowing them to finish Lucifer’s story on their own terms.
Henderson noted, “The fan support is super-important, and in particular the first month is going to be crucial towards whether or not we get a Season 5, because they [at Netflix] are paying attention. So far, the fan support has been amazing — everything you could ask for.” He added “Most importantly, we want to thank the fans for their incredible passion and support. The best is yet to come!”
As for the next season, the showrunners have reportedly told TVLine that they have known the opening sequence of the upcoming season “literally since the start of Season 4.”
Moldrovich added “We also have one other, really fun toy to play with, that we know is going to be a big guiding factor in Season 5, so we’re excited about that, too.”
