It’s official: Lucifer will conclude with 16 episodes.
The streaming giant, which picked up the supernatural crime drama for an additional fifth and final season just last month, has announced that the final season’s episode count has been expanded.
News that six episodes were added was announced Friday morning via the streaming giant’s See What’s Next account.
“Lucifer Season 5 just got a HELL of a lot better — and bigger,” it reads. “We’ve added six more hours, for a grand total of 16 episodes!”
The first three installments of the series ran on Fox, before being canceled.
“We are so incredibly thankful to Netflix for … 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!” co-showrunners Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson said of the original final-season pickup.
Following fans’ pushback to the decision that the fifth season will indeed by the show’s last, they said, “[W]hile we feel just as sad as many of you do that this marvelous ride is coming to an end, a fight won’t change things right now. But we spoke to our partners at Netflix and Warner Bros, and you should all know TREMENDOUS car and consideration was put into making this decision.”
