Netflix Expands The Final Season Of ‘Lucifer’ To 16 Episodes
Some great news for Lucifans! Whilst the 5th Season will be the last for ‘Lucifer‘, Netflix has expanded the order from 10 to 16 episodes for his final outing.
Initially, the renewal was for 10-episodes, which is Netflix’s standard series length run. However, the streaming service revealed on social media today that we’d be a lot more of everyone’s favourite devil, stating “#Lucifer Season 5 just got a HELL of a lot better — and bigger! We’ve added six more hours, for a grand total of 16 episodes!”
Just after the final season was announced, exec producers Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson commented: “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.” It seems the Netflix guys really took that promise of letting them do it on their terms seriously. It is very rare for the streaming service to stray over 10-episodes for a season, so this was a very happy surprise!
The series follows Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis), the original fallen angel, who became dissatisfied with his life in hell. Retiring to L.A., he inadvertently teams up with an LAPD detective (Lauren German) to help punish criminals.
WARNING – SEASON 4 SPOILERS BELOW…
Season 4 began with Lucifer reeling from the aftermath of Chloe seeing his devil face. But his attention was soon grabbed by the return of someone from his past… Eve (Inbar Lavi – ‘The Last Ship’), the original sinner herself. The season ends as demons start to run amok on Earth, trying to kidnap Amenadiel (D. B. Woodside) and Linda’s (Rachael Harris) baby. It becomes clear something has to be done to keep them in line, so Lucifer takes up his seat once again as the King of Hell.
‘Lucifer‘ seasons 1 to 3 can be found on Amazon Prime in the UK, with Season 4 available to stream on Netflix UK right now.
