Hey, Netflix you may want to throw Lucifer fans a bone, or some wings, and go ahead and confirm what we already know: Tom Ellis and gang will be back for a fifth season.
Renew Lucifer is the top hashtag right now on Twitter.
Fans are getting a little devilish.
Despite rumors that Ellis will replace Daniel Craig as the next James Bond (circulated widely on this website), and the possibility of a Lucifer movie (also circulated widely on this website), everyone knows that Netflix has had a binge-worthy bonanza since dropping season four last week.
“We have a lot of exciting ways, and one way in particular, to do it that launches an awesome, awesome season five,” said Henderson.
“We did spend some time digging into what we think can be season five. We even have the first scene of season five, which is one of my favorite things we’ve ever come up with.”
C’mon, Netflix! Make it official already.
Lucifer is a fantasy comedy drama revolving around the devil.
The show focuses on Lucifer Morningstar (Ellis), a fallen angel who is fed up with his demanding role as the King of Hell, so decides to become a consultant with the LAPD instead, naturally.
Lucifer has superhuman strength and invulnerability, as well as the power to make people tell him their secret desires.
The devil character is based on one created by Neil Gaiman for The Sandman comic-book series.
At first, religious groups called for a boycott of Lucifer when it premiered on Fox.
As it gathered more fans, the religious community backed off, with some even promoting the values of the show.
Following Fox’s decision to cancel Lucifer in May 2018, there was a huge social media campaign for the show’s revival.
Netflix picked up the series in June 2018 after monumental support for the series on Twitter under the #SaveLucifer hashtag.
When Netflix announces a fifth season, likely by the end of the month, Tom Ellis and Lauren German would likely reprise their roles as Lucifer Morningstar and Detective Chloe Decker.
Kevin Alejandro could also be back as Detective Dan Espinoza, alongside Lesley-Ann Brandt as Mazikeen, Aimee Garcia as Ella Lopez and Rachael Harris as Dr Linda Martin, among others.
Inbar Lavi could also be back as Eve, with Henderson saying: “We loved working with Inbar. As you can see in the season, she’s absolutely fantastic. The question becomes, as we get into our room, how much story would we have for that character?”
Maze star Lesley-Ann Brandt opened up about renewal possibilities last week.
“I think we might,” the actress said on making a fifth season of Lucifer with Netflix. “Our trailer has got four million views, which is crazy and it was humbling,’ she told Mea Worldwide. ‘I hope so as there is so much story that we could tell, and the way we ended the season, it was on a massive cliffhanger. So, I just don’t see how we don’t have a season five.”
Season four ended on an agonizing cliffhanger, so much so that the hashtag #renewLucifer is already trending on Twitter:

When JimHeath.TV recently advocated for Tom Ellis to be the next James Bond, he responded “I agree with everything you say.”
Agreed Jim! In fact I agree with everything you say ? https://t.co/0H0pt5Wj0Q

We’re guessing he’d agree on this effort to renew Lucifer too.
Lucifer season 1-4 available on Netflix now.
