Fans will get a little more of Lucifer in it’s final season. Netflix will divide the season into two eight episode parts. The announcement was made on The Kelly Clarkson Show by Lucifer star Tom Ellis, according to Deadline.
“Season 5 of Lucifer is going to be split into two halves,” Ellis said. “Netflix is going to drop eight episodes, there’s going to be a little break, and then they’re going to drop another eight more episodes.”
When Netflix saved the series from Fox cancellation in 2018, the network originally ordered ten episodes for season four. When they announced the fifth season would be the last, Netflix ordered six more episodes, including a 40’s themed musical episode. How fun!
In the season four finale, Lucifer made the decision to return to Hell to keep the demons from invading Earth. Unfortunate timing though because Chloe (Lauren German) finally realized she was in love with Lucifer. And he has always been in love with her. I’m expecting a rescue mission in the final season.
Lucifer is based on the DC comic characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth, and Mike Dringenberg from the comic book series The Sandman. The series is produced by Jerry Brockheimer Television, DC Entertainment, and Warner Bros. Television.
Lucifer season five does not have a release date as of yet. You can watch seasons 1-4 on Netflix now.
