Season 5 confirmed
The series starring Tom Ellis, Lauren German and Tom Welling among many others in lead, are excited to be back on the small screen with a fifth season. Lucifer got its debut in 2016 and built a huge fan base for itself. Four years on, it continues to have the fans obsessed and always wanting more.
After the end of the fourth season, fans were unsure if they would get to see a fifth season. Following a social media campaign that was made viral by Lucifans, the creators of the series were able to confirm that there would be a new season.
Writer Ildy Modrovich tweets about season 6 confirmation
While a new season sounds great, there was also a confirmation that the fifth season would also be the last season. Showrunner Ildy Modrovich took to Twitter to express gratitude to the dedicated fans and also announce details about season 5 and 6.
The tweet said— “Hello beloved Lucifam! We know there’s been a lot of confusion over the recent announcement that this is our last season. Many are wondering if they should fight for more?? And while we feel just as sad as many of you do that this marvelous ride is coming to an end, a fight won’t change things right now. But we spoke to our partners at Netflix and WarnerBros, and you should all know TREMENDOUS care and consideration was put into making this decision.”
In the same tweet she continued— “In fact, the whole reason they decided to announce that it was our fifth and final season simultaneously is because they know how devoted and passionate our fans (and we!) are and wanted to give y’all (and us!) as much time as they could to accept and process the news. And for that we’re incredibly grateful. But mostly, we’re all beyond grateful that they gave us this new life in the first place. AND a chance to give this story the ending it deserves.”
The sweet note ended with words of gratitude that said — “So, on behalf of the cast and Joe and … we look forward to spending this final season basking in the Luci-love with you!!”
