We know we've said this before, but this time we mean it: Netflix has been renewed Lucifer for his last season. One day after the release date for part one of the upcoming fifth season (previously announced as the last season) was released, the streamer announced on Tuesday June 23 that the series would return for a sixth and "final FINAL". Run.

The news is not a big surprise as lead actor Tom Ellis officially signed a "potential" contract for season six after a month-long hiatus. So it can be assumed that the highly anticipated fifth season ended with the possibility of a return. There will be no unresolved cliffhangers in our future!
The series was revived by Netflix in June 2018 after being canceled by Fox. The fans started a #SaveLucifer campaign, which led to a premiere of the fourth season with 10 episodes on Netflix in May 2019. It was extended shortly after the premiere for the fifth season, which later turned out to be in two parts. The season went from 10 to 16 episodes, with the first eight dropping due to the premiere on August 21 and the second half at an unannounced time. These last eight episodes will prepare fans for the official final season, which has no release date from now. With most productions delayed by the COVID 19 pandemic, it can be said with certainty that work on season six will still be far away. Still, we can use this as a win for the "Lucifans!"
