Netflix has announced that it has given the green light for Lucifer to air a fifth and final season – meaning the popular series is ending, again.
Fox had previously canceled the show after just three seasons before it was picked up by the streaming giant but it seems that Netflix, too, is now ready to bury the DC hit for good.
When the news was announced, co-showrunners, Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovic, thanked Netflix for reviving the show: “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.
“Most importantly, we want to thank the fans for their incredible passion and support. The best is yet to come!”
The series, based on the DC comic of the same title, follows Lucifer, the original fallen angel, who has become dissatisfied with his life in hell and settles in Los Angeles to learn more about humanity.
As fans of the show prepare to wave goodbye to the stunning Prince of Darkness, new details have been surfacing about the upcoming fifth season, including the fact that the season will feature an episode shot entirely in black and white.
According to Entertainment Tonight, the episode will be set in an alternative universe in the 1940s and will feature a “musical twist.”
“I can’t tease too much! I would say on this episode, we take a trip down memory lane with Lucifer,” Tom Ellis, who plays the dark lord himself, explained to ET.
“We tell a story that answers the question a lot of fans have been asking actually.
“The lovely thing about this episode is you see a lot of our regular characters in a different light,” he added. “The thing about Lucifer is that he’s timeless, so he’s been coming back to Earth all this time. There’s an element to Lucifer where he seems to be from the Oscar Wilde period. And to see the other characters fall back into that style is quite interesting.”
Ellis also promised that the end of Lucifer will be “satisfying” to longtime fans of the show.
