Netflix has officially renewed Lucifer for a fifth season, which will also be the supernatural drama series' last.
Based on the DC/Vertigo character of the same name created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg, Lucifer first premiered on Fox in early 2016. The network cancelled the series after three seasons, but it was then picked up by Netflix, with Season 4 premiering on the streaming giant in its entirety early last month. The newly-announced fifth season will conclude this journey.
"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," Netflix said in a statement.
