Lucifer has already dodged death once, with the Tom-Ellis-starring show Satanically segueing onto Netflix after being cancelled at Fox. But now, the show will end for good, with Netflix announcing its plans for a fifth and final season…
Fox cancelled Lucifer after three seasons, before Netflix picked up the rights to produce season 4, which is available to watch now. But if you were hoping that Netflix would keep making new Lucifer episodes far into the future, think again.
The iconic streaming service has revealed, through one of its many official Twitter accounts, that the newly-announced Lucifer season 5 will draw the show to a close…
#Lucifer has been renewed for a fifth and final season!
