“Lucifer” is coming to an end — just in time for star Tom Ellis to be seriously considered as the next James Bond. That’s good timing, detective!

Netflix has renewed the popular show for a fifth and final season.

Lucifer has been the most binged show for four weeks running, so the announcement was not a huge surprise.

Netflix took to Twitter to share the news, and Ellis, who is still on his honeymoon, was overjoyed:

 

 

The series previously aired on Fox for three seasons before Netflix revived it for a fourth.

The fourth season debuted on the streaming service in early May.

“We’re thrilled that ‘Lucifer’ fans around the world have embraced this series on Netflix, and we can’t wait to give them the big finish they’ve all been waiting for,” a Netflix spokesperson said in a statement.

Ellis tweeted:

 

 

Aimee Garcia was also excited:

 

 

As was Maze herself, Leslit Ann Brandt:

 

 

Writer Ildy Modrovich joined in:

 

 

Fan groups are also ecstatic:

 

The show has been the #1 most binged for over a month:

 

 

“Lucifer” centers on Ellis as the titular fallen angel and the Lord of Hell, who works with the LAPD to take down Earth’s criminals.

The series also stars Lauren German, Kevin Alejandro, D.B. Woodside, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Scarlett Estevez, and Rachael Harris.

“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,” said showrunners Henderson and Modrovich. “Most importantly, we want to thank the fans for their incredible passion and support. The best is yet to come!!”

 

 

As fans react to the announcement that Lucifer is coming to an end, writers are already making it clear this was a cast decision.

 

 

The conclusion of Lucifer will be interesting timing for Ellis, who JimHeath.TV has predicted will be the next James Bond, replacing the retiring Daniel Craig.

The British actor has played the devil with charm and anger and wit for four seasons, so the transition to Bond, with all his action-packed moodiness, should be simple.

His role as the snarky and devilish Lucifer has actually just been a extra long audition for one of the premiere jobs in Hollywood.

The petition drive to Eon Productions to demand Ellis be the next Bond has already started on Change.org.

When we floated the idea of Bond, Ellis responded that he agreed:

 

For now, fans will be excited about the prospect of one last season of Lucifer.

Lucifans have truly made all of this possible.
