Netflix Renews Lucifer For Fifth And Final Season
Netflix has announced it will give Lucifer for a fifth season, which will also be its last, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
The show was axed by Fox in May last year, leaving fans fuming, particularly because the third season ended on a cliffhanger.
But everyone's favourite streaming service came to the rescue and gave it two more seasons to wrap it up. Lucifer tells the story of Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis) and is based on characters created by Neil Gaiman for DC's Vertigo Imprint.
"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," 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 are 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."

The fourth instalment of the series was teased with a rather steamy video which featured Lucifer Morningstar himself rising from a pool (putting every other bloke in a 10 mile radius to shame).
After showing us his smouldering look, we got a taster of his 666 tattoo which was shortly followed by the tagline 'He Is Risen'.
The new season will consist of 10 episodes, according to comicbook.com. Die hard fans will know that previously there have been 20-something episodes per run.
This is something which Ellis himself seems to be a fan of. Speaking to TV Line, he said: "Having it in this [10-episode] format means that our story is distilled down to being much richer.
"What's at stake in each episode is much higher. It just feels denser... telling the story in the best possible way."
