How bittersweet for the Lucifans to hear that the upcoming season of Lucifer will be its last.
Lucky for us, we’ll be getting ourselves charmed by our favorite fallen angel in hell—or should I say on Earth—once again.
With Welsh actor Tom Ellis in the lead role alongside Lauren German, the series is based on the DC Comics character from The Sandman who, well, chose Los Angeles (ironically the City of Angels) finally abandoning hell. A smart choice, I might add.
Living amongst humans on Earth, Lucifer Morningstar runs a nightclub and assists the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) on different cases alongside Detective Chloe Decker.
On June 6, Netflix announced the comedy-drama and supernatural show Lucifer will be airing on their platform for its 5th and final season.
On their official Twitter page, a screaming Tom Ellis is seen followed by an unbelievably in-character line “See you in hell.” See? Charming.

“We are so incredibly thankful to Netflix for resurrecting our show last season, and now letting us finish the story of Lucifer on our terms,” executive producers Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich whilst reacting to news of the fifth and final season.
“Most importantly, we want to thank the fans for their incredible passion and support. The best is yet to come!” added by both co-showrunners in a joint statement to bring tribute to the shows fans.
Netflix, on the other hand, exclaimed: “We are thrilled that Lucifer fans around the world have embraced this series on Netflix, and we can’t wait to give them the big finish they’ve all been waiting for.” A pleasant surprise for us #Lucifans, I guess!
The release date for its 5th season has not yet been confirmed, but until then: See you in hell.
