'Lucifer' Has Been Renewed for Season 5 but It'll Be the Last One | 22 Words

Netflix is the hub for many of our favorite shows. From Orange Is The New Black to The Crown, the streaming giant constantly wows us with its binge-worthy slew of content. But one thing that will always remain bittersweet is how quickly content can drop on to the platform, only to inevitably leave.

And today, it's certainly bittersweet news for Lucifer fans. Netflix rescued the show last year after FOX ultimately decided to cancel it, but it seems that while it was quick to save the devilish show, just a year on, the streaming giant has chosen to bury it for good - renewing the series for a fifth and final season.

Keep scrolling to get all the details on the upcoming final season.

The streaming giant picked up the popular show, allowing the Prince of Darkness to grace screens for longer.

But it seems we're finally having to wave goodbye to Mr. Morningstar, for good.

Back in June, it was announced that Netflix has renewed the show for a fifth and final season. When the news broke, co-showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovic, thanked Netflix for reviving the beloved 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."

Modrovich shared a letter with fans going into more detail about the show coming to an end.

"We spoke to our partners at Netflix and Warner Bros, and you should all know TREMENDOUS care and consideration was put into making this decision." "In fact, the whole reason they decided to announce that it was our fifth and final season simultaneously is because they know how devoted and passionate our fans (and we!) are and wanted to give y'all (and us!) as much time as they could to accept and process the news. And for that, we're incredibly grateful."

But, as we prepare to bid Lucifer farewell, new details surrounding the upcoming season have begun to surface.

Including the fact that one of the episodes will be shot entirely in black and white. According to Entertainment Tonight, the unique episode will be set in an alternative universe in the 1940s and will feature a “musical twist."

Tom Ellis, who plays the dark lord himself, revealed some clues about what to expect.

“I can’t tease too much! I would say on this episode, we take a trip down memory lane with Lucifer," he explained. “The lovely thing about this episode is you see a lot of our regular characters in a different light." “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."

During a recent Lucifer fan convention Ellis admitted he will struggle when the show comes to an end...

"I can categorically say that I will never have another experience like this. When they call cut on the last day, it’s going to be a lot to take in."

The actor also promised that the end of Lucifer will be “satisfying" to longtime fans of the show.

It may be bittersweet but we're certainly excited to see what's in store... Lucifer season 5 is expected to air in 2020.
