Lucifans got their wish! Their favorite show, Lucifer, renewed for Season 5! But the news is bittersweet. This will be the finale season of the Netflix show. Why will this be the last season of Lucifer?

Lucifer Renewed For Season 5!

Lucifans have been waiting for the news of Lucifer renewed for a fifth season since Season 4 dropped on May 8. It was assumed that it would be around June 8 that a renewal announcement would be made. Lucifans felt quite confident that their beloved show would return. It has been a worldwide trending show since it dropped. It was at the top of the binging list for four weeks straight, even beating out Game of Thrones. So fans were thrilled to see a video of Tom Ellis shouting “woos.” He then stopped to say, “see you in hell.”

Tom was clearly in Los Angeles, not in the beachy honeymoon spot that he and his new wife, Meaghan Oppenheimer were celebrating after their nuptials. On June 1, the couple married in front of family and Tom’s Lucifer costars and producers, including Lesley-Ann Brandt, Lauren German, Kevin Alejandro, D.B. Woodside, Aimee Garcia, Rachael Harris, and co-showrunners Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson. It appears that Ellis, and perhaps the rest of the cast, knew before his lavish wedding that the show would  be renewed. Perhaps this wedding celebration had a double meaning. They most likely all knew that Lucifer Season 5 would be the final season.

Lucifer Season 5 News Bittersweet

In the midst of the celebration that Lucifer renewed for another season, was the realization that this will be the end. A lot of fans missed the whole picture as they were just celebrating the renewal. The news became bittersweet when that renewal also revealed that this will be the finale season. Tom Ellis posted on social media,”Well look what happened” A 5th and final season of #Lucifer is coming to @LuciferNetflix thank you to all you loyal #lucifans for watching…now let’s end this thing properly.”

This is a shocker to fans who have heard showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich speak about their show. It always seemed that seven seasons was an ideal length to tell the story of Lucifer Morningstar and Chloe Decker. So when it was announced that the show was renewed for the fifth, and final season, this was a shock to fans. Fans want to know why the show is ending, especially as Netflix just saved it. Did Netflix only give them one season to resurrect the show? Did the producers fear that if they extended the show much longer that there would be a risk of not telling the full story?

Lucifer Season 5 Promises To Be ‘Awesome’

Fans don’t exactly have an answer to these questions. It seems that show writer and producer Chris Rafferty may have explained why the show will end now. His sentiments that “we get to finish the show on our terms” seems to echo Tom’s words “let’s end this thing properly.”

It’s official – #LUCIFER WILL RETURN! For one final season. All good things must come to an end, and we feel blessed we get to finish the story on our terms. To all the LuciFans who worked so hard to resurrect us, THANK YOU for the chance to bring you a series finale you deserve!”

What we do know is that Lucifer Season 4 is incredible. Ildy and Joe have been talking about their “awesome” plans for Season 5. They know that this is the end, and they want to give Lucifans a wonderful ending.

Hopefully, this will mean a happily ever after for Lucifer and Chloe. Because it is the final season, they should tie up these loose ends.

  1. I finally find a show I TRULY enjoy and look forward to watching always! It’s also the only show that I’ve ever watched where I adore ALL the characters because each one brings a valuable piece to the story which makes the story itself incredibly addicting! I still would like to know WHY it has to end so soon…..There’s so much of the story to tell! And now you’re going to cram it all into one last season?!? It doesn’t make any sense…..what happened?
    I’m TRULY sad and a little disappointed….
    Again I LOVE ALL THE CHARACTERS and now I will MISS them all😢
    God Bless all the cast, especially Tom Ellis and his bride…..❤❤❤❤❤

  2. I have been enjoying the heck out of this show. I had already made peace with Lucifer going to hell alone as the final moment of the series. I am so excited they got another season to play it out a bit more. But I really wish for this show to not die before it becomes unpopular. Ending it now, leaves room for a movie? Please?

  3. I plan on enjoying every moment I have left with Lucifer and not dwell on the fact it will be gone! I hope I get to see all of these amazing actors again in the future in other bodys of work!!!!!

  4. There remain far too many opportunities for good storylines as well as future industry accolades. Ending Lucifer now is premature and I fear the final writing will suffer.

  5. I just finished bing watching Lucifer. It took two and a half days, worth every second. Love the show and its characters one of which was Maze! Let’s hope the writers and producers give Season 5 a great send off #LuciferChloe forever. Hell be damned!

  6. I been fallowing show for years now – mainly because of my daughter- it’s a great entertainment and latest news are really bittersweet- if it is a final I would leave it as it is now~ There is no chance Lucifer going to come back and play happy family with Chloe – I just cannot see that – Also I’m very surprised how other rubbish shows get going for years- but this needs constant saving and petitions- how filmmakers can’t see that everyone loves it – why not make more seasons- more storylines- more about it – why end at all …

  7. I can’t believe it’s only being extended one more season. I think it’s the best show on tv
