Lucifer is getting six more episodes thanks to the cats up at Netflix.

It was sad but inevitable news when it was announced Lucifer would be ending. It was a show that slowly but surely picked up a cult following and now it’s coming to an end, we’re all at a loss.

Call me Mick Jagger, because I’ve got some uhhh… Sympathy for the devil.

I do apologise.

Anyway, when it was announced that we’d only be getting ten episodes to tie the story of Lucifer up into a neat little package, people weren’t happy; they weren’t at all happy it was finishing, they’d hardly be pleased with a measly ten hours.

With that, Netflix have ordered another six episodes to make season five 16 episodes long and as you mathematicians outs there know, 16 is a bigger number than ten… so good news.

Still, boo that it’s ending.

Series producer Ildy Modrovich spoke about the upcoming ultimatum for Lucifer, saying:

“[…] while we feel just as sad as many of you do that, this marvellous ride is coming to an end, a fight won’t change things right now.

I suppose that’s fair enough.

Furthermore, as reported by TV Line, showrunners Joe Henderson and Modrovich said:

‘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,

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

The good news is that this frees Tom Ellis up and I think he would be a fantastic James Bond.

Food for thought.
