The Hellfires are slowly burning out as Netflix confirms Lucifer has just one season left. Tom Kapinos’ gritty drama is based on the comic book character who appeared in DC’s Sandman before getting his own series.
Starring Tom Ellis as Lucifer Moonstar, the titular character is the Devil himself. Leaving the warmth of Hell behind him, Lucifer moves to Los Angeles, sets up his own nightclub, and becomes a consultant to the LAPD.
Originally cancelled by Fox after just three seasons, Netflix picked up Lucifer and has given the series a new lease of life. However, the streaming giant now promises a “big finish”.
Netflix’s statement said, “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.”

“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. …The best is yet to come!!” — EP’s @Henderson_Joe & @Ildymojo pic.twitter.com/s6nekmawtA
A statement from showrunners Joe Handerson and Ildy Modrovich revealed what’s coming for Lucifer: “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!”
Speaking to TVLine, the showrunners says they’ve known how Season 5 will open “literally since we started Season 4.” Moldrovich then teased, “We also have one other, really fun toy to play with, that we know is going to be a big guiding factor in Season 5, so we’re excited about that, too.”
Could we be on the cusp of a crossover with Constantine. Given that the demented duo have met in the comics, that would be one ‘hell’ of a way to round the series off.
The official Lucifer Twitter featured a video of Ellis proudly declared, “See you in Hell” to his fans. It’s currently unclear how many episode Season 5 will include, but it sounds like the powers that be know what they’re doing.
