Looks like we’re heading to Hell, everyone.
Lucifer has been renewed by Netflix for a fifth and final season, series star Tom Ellis announced on Thursday. The fantasy police procedural ran for three seasons on Fox before being cancelled, then resurrected by Netflix for a 10-episode season four.
That season saw Lucifer (Ellis) willingly return to Hell in order to protect those he loves on Earth from rogue demons. There was a tearful confessions of love by Detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German) before his departure, which heartwrenching.
Ugh. Our hearts are breaking just thinking about it. Hopefully, we’ll get closure from the fifth season.
It was announced on the Twitter account by Ellis, who screamed joyfully. It was captioned with “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.”
