Lucifer season 5 is coming along great and the latest update on the developing final season is sure to put an evil grin on your face — more episodes have been added!

That’s right, Lucifans! We are all about to get a bigger season than we first believed. TVLine broke the news that the final season, also known as Lucifer season 5, has expanded to a total of 16 episodes! Six more hours of Lucifer? I love the sounds of that.

The news puts a lot of fan’s fears to rest. Why? Well, season 5 being Lucifer‘s final chapter means there is more pressure on the stories to end in a way that will satisfy fans. After all, we don’t want any of the plots or character arcs to be rushed. This is why many fans tried to battle for a sixth season. But now that we have more episodes, we all feel so much better about looking forward to an appetizing finale.

This is also another reason to be thankful to Netflix. Let’s not forget, the streaming giant rescued Lucifer when its original network, Fox, cancelled it after three season. Can you believe Fox was going to allow Lucifer to end without a proper conclusion? The fun was just beginning!

Thanks to Netflix, the story has grown and all the characters are going to get the finale they very well deserve. Lucifer also proved what a strong fan following it has. In case you missed it, the series became the most-watched show on Netflix and held on to that spot for eight consecutive weeks!

Lucifer was dethroned by Stranger Things when season 3 came along, but not before breaking a Binge Report record.

Season 5 is currently in production. Confirmed to return is the main cast, which includes Tom Ellis, Lauren German, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Kevin Alejandro, D.B. Woodside, Aimee Garcia, and Rachel Harris. We are still waiting to learn if Inbar Lavi will return as Eve. Fingers crossed, she’s amazing!

It’s unclear how these additional six episodes will affect the release date. There’s plenty of time to writer the season and film the episodes before next spring, when we thing the final season will be released. I think a 16-episode season, though, would be the biggest ever for a Netflix hour-long show. Would they break the season up into two parts?

Keep an eye out, Lucifans! More details about the fifth and final season of Lucifer will begin to spill in the following weeks, and we’ll be sure to keep you posted!
