Good news for those who love nothing more than binging through a dark and dramatic TV series, full of supernatural elements and religious imagery.
Fans of Lucifer are set to get another descent into Hell, with the comicbook series getting renewed for a fifth and final season.
Netflix’s announcement that Lucifer would be renewed for one last season has caused fans to petition once more for the future of the series.
Last week, the streaming service confirmed that season 5 for would be its last, and although co-showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich said at the time that the story would end “on our own terms”, some passionate viewers are questioning the decision.
In fact, there’s a Change.org petition asking Netflix to reconsider and give the show a season 6 as well.
Showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich have given the following statement:
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!
Speaking with TV Line last month, Henderson made the following comments about the importance of support from ‘Lucifans’ in getting a renewal:
The fan support is super-important, and in particular [the first] month is going to be crucial towards whether or not we get a Season 5, because they [at Netflix] are paying attention.
So far, the fan support has been amazing — everything you could ask for.
I mean, holy crap. It’s just been great,
I don’t know if I could ever handle it when bad reviews came or something, because I feel so spoiled and grateful right now.
Lucifer originally reigned on FOX for three seasons, before getting axed. However, much like with Brooklyn 99, fans were hellbent on saving this series and letting it reach a proper conclusion.
Fans campaigned for many months to save Lucifer’s soul, and their prayers were answered by resurrection specialist Netflix, who recently debuted its fourth season.
You can currently catch the first four seasons of Lucifer on Netflix.
