Lucifer: Coming to an End!

at .  Updated at .

Lucifer's reign on Netflix will be a short one. 

The popular series will come to a close for good after one more season on the streamer, according to TV Line.

The news is somewhat surprising, especially when you consider how vocal the fanbase was when the show was canceled by Fox after three seasons last year.

Then again, the series will be getting a full final season to wrap the story up so that counts for something.

“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,” reads a statement from co-showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich.

“Most importantly, we want to thank the fans for their incredible passion and support. The best is yet to come!”

The words from the showrunners certainly makes it sound like it was a mutual decision, but surely more details will come out eventually. 

Netflix does not typically release viewership for its shows, but it's thought that Lucifer was a success story for the streamer. 

It's unclear at this stage how many episodes the final season will span, but the finer details of the renewal are probably being ironed out at this moment in time.

The 10-episode fourth season landed on Netflix in May, so it was only a matter of time before the show's fate was decided. 

Netflix brass have previously opened up about using 28-day viewership data to make renewal decisions.

Lucifer stars Tom Ellis as the titular devil. When the show kicked off, he was bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell. 

He resigned his throne in defiance to his father (God) and left the kingdom behind to live in Los Angeles, where he ultimately opened a nightclub called "Lux."
