Lucifer Season 5 Really is the Last, Says Showrunner
The writers have also returned to the table to begin work on the final season's scripts.
When Lucifer was let go after its third season on the Fox network, fans around the world rallied behind the show desperately trying to save it. The #savelucifer went viral and before long, it was announced that Netflix had picked up the fallen series. Season 4 premiered on May 8th, 2019 with all 10 episodes available on the streaming platform.
Less than 24 hours later, fans were already asking for a fifth season. Shortly after, their prayers were answered when the cast and crew announced that not only were they coming back for another season, but it would ultimately be their last.
Since then, fans have been asking if there is a chance that their support of the series could be saved and addition seasons be filmed. Ildy Modrovich, one of the showrunners, addressed that on her social media stating in part “...while we feel just as sad as many of you do that this marvelous ride is coming to and, a fight won’t change things right now.” You can read her full response below.
A message of love for our #Lucifans ????????❤️ from me... @Henderson_Joe all the #Lucifer writers and our beautiful cast... @tomellis17 @LaurenGerman @LesleyAnnBrandt @RachaelEHarris @kevinmalejandro @dbwofficial @Aimee_Garcia and @ScarMestevez pic.twitter.com/8aXb6yfJ7c— Ildy Modrovich (@Ildymojo) June 26, 2019
The show has garnered a large fan following despite its difficulties along the way. A censorship campaign early on almost grounded the show, then the cancellation and resurrection on a different network, and now news that this is Lucifer’s final season. Throughout that, fans have stuck by the show and its cast.
In an Instagram post today by Tom Ellis (Lucifer Morningstar), the actor shares a photo of the writers returning to the offices for day one of working on the final script.
