Lucifer’s fifth and final season was confirmed by executive producers Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich on Twitter and confirmed by Netflix.
Despite huge ratings, the show will once again be cancelled after Fox cancelled the show after season three.
Netflix then resurrected the show after a global petition by Lucifer fans who believed the show was cancelled too soon.
They then launched another petition to get Netflix to announce season five, which they dutifully did.
So please, fellow Lucifans, join me and unite once more
However, it must feel like one step forward and two steps backward for fans as they know face the prospect of losing Lucifer forever.
So, they have set up another petition on Change.org to plead with Netflix to commission a season six.
The petition reads: “It had been announced that season five of Lucifer will be its last and final. This show has many more seasons left in it.
“I can’t understand why they would choose not to continue with the fan reaction of the cancellation after season three and season four, great reviews.
“So please, fellow Lucifans, join me and unite once more to show Netflix what the fans want and how many of us there are.”
The petition had 3,600 signatures when this article was written.
The show’s producers announced the news of the final season in a joint statement: “We are so incredibly thankful to Netflix for resurrecting our show last season.
“And for now letting us finish the story of Lucifer on our terms.”
“Thanks to the Lucifans, #lucifer’s story will come to an end the way it should: the fifth and final season is coming to @netflix,” Netflix also posted.
Meanwhile, Lucifer star Tom Ellis has revealed his thoughts on his role and the show coming to an end.
Posting on Instagram alongside a selfie from 2015 before he shot his first scenes, he said: “I took this selfie on March 17 2015 just before leaving my trailer to shoot the first scene on the pilot episode of #Lucifer.
“I was really nervous and at that moment I couldn’t have dreamed that we would get to where we are now.
“I have had the most amazing ride making life-long friends, and playing a character that I truly love.”
He touchingly added: “It has been an utter privilege.”
He continued: “More importantly I want to say YOU the fans have been the cherry on the cake of this whole journey.
“You will forever be precious to me and I cannot thank you enough for your passion, support and kindness for the past four and half years.
“Here’s to a rocking season five and going out on a high!!!!!!! #lucifer.”
Lucifer season 4 is available to stream on Netflix now and season five is expected to start production this year.
