Lucifer’s F-bomb free fourth season premiered last month, and fans had been anxiously awaited word on whether it would get Season 5. June 6 brought the bittersweet news that Lucifer would be getting a fifth season. That is the sweet part. The bitter is that it will also be the series’ last.
In announcing the news, Netflix shared a video of Tom Ellis celebrating Lucifer’s renewal. An ecstatic Ellis can be celebrating with some good-spirited screams before saying he will “see you in Hell.” Following that video, Ellis went on to share a written message with fans on his Twitter account:
Tom Ellis acknowledged the bittersweet nature of Lucifer’s renewal. However, he also points out the endgame of all good things. For the cast and crew, it has to be assuring to know that the series will be able to tell its final chapter. There was a time that looked like it may not happen.
Tom Ellis was not the only one reacting to Lucifer’s renewal on social media. His co-stars did too. Lesley-Ann Brandt, who plays Mazikeen, quoted Lucifer’s renewal tweet with the caption “raise your horns.” She also shared a video congratulating fans and sharing her speculative thoughts on Season 5. Check it out below:
Lesley-Ann Brandt is already speculating about Season 5! In the video, she wonders if Maze and Eve will get together, as well as how Maze will react to learning that Lucifer left her to go to Hell. And more! You have to watch it! Brandt concludes by saying that Season 5 will “be lit.”
The actress also shared an incredible thread of written gratitude for Lucifer's upcoming season. In it, she shares that the cast is sad too.
Lesley-Ann Brandt continued by sharing how she plans to relish the final season and for a very poignant reason.
She concluded with a heartfelt message to Lucifer's fans:
Following that Hellish cliffhanger, fans are undoubtedly relieved to know they will get a follow-up. When Fox cancelled the series, it also did so on a big one. Hence, there should be a lot of relief that Lucifer will go out with a proper (and planned) finale.
Rachael Harris, who plays Dr. Linda Martin on the show, reacted to the news by thanking Netflix and the “kids.” Check out what she had to say here:
Leading lady Lauren German reacted on Twitter by retweeting her Lucifer co-star Tom Ellis’ tweet addressing the renewal news. She saved her more specific thoughts for her Instagram page:
Lauren German may have lost her voice, but she found enough of it to thank fans and suggest some ideas for Season 5. Who isn't on board for more "drunk Chloe" before the end? As for the fans, they are responding too. One of them shared their hopes with a Season 5 wishlist:
Time will tell if any of those wishes will come true! Another fan reflected on the journey to save Lucifer and get another season, while also saying they are sad it will be the show's last. Check it out:
I think being mournful over the news makes sense. Endings are never easy. Especially when it is a TV show you feel passionately about. Lucifer fans should feel proud that they managed to get two more seasons. They survived a network cancellation, and a streaming revival will bring its story to a close. It is bittersweet.
Seasons 1 through 4 of Lucifer are currently available to stream on Netflix, along with some new premieres. A premiere date for Season 5 has not been announced yet. Netflix’s French account posted it would be released in 2020, so stay tuned. In the meantime, this summer will be filled with new and returning shows.
