Lucifer season 5, which will be the last run of the show, has been gifted an extra six episodes by Netflix…
TV Line broke the news, reporting that Lucifer season 5 will run for 16 episodes. Previously, we had been under the impression that this final season of the show had 10 episodes.
This is a nice treat for the fans, but let’s not get false hope that Lucifer could yet survive. We’re still under the impression that this is the very last season of Lucifer, as Netflix announced last month with this Tweet:
#Lucifer has been renewed for a fifth and final season!

Netflix also shared this statement: “We’re 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.”
And the show’s executive producers, Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson, added this: “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. Most importantly, we want to thank the fans for their incredible passion and support. The best is yet to come!!”
At least we know now that this final season will be a decent-length conclusion. And we’ll bring you more Lucifer season 5 news as we hear it.
