It’s official: Netflix has ordered a sixth season of Lucifer, which will be the last. The announcement (you can see below) acknowledges the fact that the broadcaster previously renewed the series for a fifth season, which was also announced as a finale, calling season 6 “FINAL FINAL.”
The news comes almost a month after Deadline reported that series star Tom Ellis has closed a deal to return as the main character in a sixth season. Netflix began talking to series producer Warner Bros. TV about another installment of the comic book drama ahead of the fifth season premiere. The rest of the cast and executive producers Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson also closed new deals for another season.
The series follows Lucifer from Ellis, who is bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell. He renounces his throne and abandons his kingdom for Los Angeles, where he receives his kicks helping LAPD detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German). In the fifth season, the stakes are higher than ever. Secrets will be revealed, beloved characters will die, and we will finally get an answer to the question, “Will they or won’t they?”
