Lucifer was originally brought to life on Fox but after three seasons, the network decided to scrap the show in 2019. But this wasn’t the end as the drama was resurrected by Netflix which swooped in and commissioned the series instead. Now, fans are eagerly awaiting the fifth series to be dropped on the streaming service.

WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Lucifer season 4.

Lucifer season four ended on a major cliffhanger which saw the demon himself (played by Tom Ellis) leave his life on Earth behind.

Despite loving living in Los Angeles and running his nightclub and helping the police some crimes in his spare time, he made the decision to return to Hell.

He realised the demons still needed to be kept in check and he was the only one who could do it so he made the ultimate sacrifice and left LA behind.

But will Lucifer change his mind and get back to the life he’s learned to love?

“In fact, the whole reason they decided to announce that it was our fifth and final season simultaneously is because they know how devoted and passionate our fans (and we!) are and wanted to give y’all (and us!) as much time as they could to accept and process the news. And for that we’re incredibly grateful.”
