Lucifer on Netflix is gearing up for its fifth and final season…or so we thought. Deadline has confirmed that Warner Brothers TV is in talks with the streaming giant to possibly extend the show for one more installment!
The series, based on the comic book characters created by Neil Gaiman, centers on Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis) who, after millennia sitting on the throne of Hell, becomes bored with his infernal gig and flees to Los Angeles where he opens up a nightclub and spends his evenings in decadent surroundings making deals here and there for old time’s sake.
After a young performer is killed outside his club, he becomes enamored with police detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German) and soon works his way into “consulting” with local law enforcement to stave off boredom and to spend more time with her.
Along the way, we’ve met a motley crew of characters, Biblical and otherwise, and it’s been reported that Lucifer’s father–you know, God–is finally making an appearance this season, as well.
The series ran for three seasons on Fox before being unexpectedly cancelled. In the wake of fan outcry, however, Netflix picked up Lucifer for a supposed two season run to complete the story.
This most recent news has us wondering where the series will go. We’re all for more Lucifer, Chloe, Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt), Linda (Rachael Harris), Ella (Aimee Garcia), Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside), and Detective Dan “the Douche” Espinoza (Kevin Alejandro), but there are few things more painful than a TV series who is extending their run just for the sake of more episodes.
At a reported 77 episodes, Lucifer is already one of the longest running series now classified as a Netflix Original despite where it began so it will be interesting to see exactly how these talks play out.
Are you ready for more Lucifer? Do you think they should end the series as planned? Let us know what you think in the comments!
