Netflix to end Lucifer after S5

Lucifer

Lucifer was commissioned by Fox before moving to Netflix

Netflix is bringing the curtain down on its revived drama series Lucifer with a fifth and final season order.

The show was initially commissioned by Fox in the US, which cancelled the show in 2018 after three seasons, leading to the US streamer ordering a fourth run that debuted recently.

The fifth season will wrap up the show, which is produced by Warner Bros Television in association with Jerry Bruckheimer Television.

It is based on the DC Comics characters created by Neil Gaiman and follows Lucifer as he works with an LA police detective to crack crimes and track down those responsible.

Prior to Fox’s cancellation, the show had been sold widely, including to Amazon in the UK and Germany, while Hulu held SVoD rights in the US. These were subsequently acquired by Netflix following its decision to revive the series.

The streamer confirmed the S5 commission, saying: “We’re 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.”

Exec producers Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson thanked Netflix for “resurrecting our show last season and now letting us finish the story of Lucifer on our own terms. Most importantly, we want to thank the fans for their incredible passion and support. The best is yet to come!”
