The final season of Lucifer will be split into two parts

In a recent appearance at The Kelly Clarkson Show, Lucifer star Tom Ellis has revealed that the upcoming fifth and final season of the supernatural series will be divided into two parts which are set to premiere exclusively on Netflix. The premiere date for the first half of the final season is still being kept under wraps. You can watch Kelly Clarkson’s full set visit in the player below!

“Season 5 of Lucifer is going to be split into two halves,” Ellis said during Clarkson’s set visit. “Netflix is going to drop eight episodes, and then there’s going to be a little break, and then they’re going to drop another eight episodes.”

Based very loosely on the Vertigo comic, Lucifer is the story of the original fallen angel. Bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, Lucifer Morningstar abandoned his throne. He then retired to Los Angeles, where he has teamed up with LAPD detective Chloe Decker to take down criminals. The show was abruptly canceled by Fox after its third season but was saved by Netflix last June.

Warner Bros. Television produces Lucifer in association with Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Aggressive Mediocrity. The series is vaguely based on characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for Vertigo, from DC Entertainment. Additionally, Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson are the executive producers. Len Wiseman serves as director and executive producer, while Kapinos serves as an executive consultant on the series.

The first four seasons of Lucifer are now available on Netflix.
