No official reason has been given for why the series has been cancelled at this stage. 

There has been concern in the past as to whether the sixth season would go ahead, and fans were pleased when they heard the news. 

However they were sad to find out it would be the final installment featuring Tom Ellis as the titular character. 

One dan said on Twitter: “It seems only right to end it on season six after all, it is the devil’s number.”

This could well be a genuine reason as to why the series is ending after six seasons. 

 The news of the series renewal comes three weeks after Tom Ellis agreed to the terms of his season six deal, following a stand-off. 

TV Line said: “Likely extending Lucifer‘s longevity was the fact that it proved to be a helluva binge, so much so that its season five pickup came just 29 days after season four’s release.

“Meaning, within Netflix’s critical first month timeframe. Lucifer season four also ranked as the number one most-binged as measured by TV Time, for a record eight straight weeks, on its way to becoming the app’s the most-binged program of 2019.

 

Lucifer was first rescued by Netflix in June 2018, weeks after its cancellation by Fox. At the time, Tom Ellis called the fan backlash to the cancellation/subsequent #SaveLucifer campaign “nothing short of ridiculously overwhelming.”

The news is bitter-sweet for fans who have been following the series since it first started airing in 2016.

Another fan said on Twitter: “Party, party, party! Thank you so much guys for bringing us another season of #Lucifer! #Luciferseason6 is actually happening. The Devil really is immortal, isn’t he?”

The series is about Lucifer Morningstar, the Devil, who abandons Hell to move to LA where he runs his own nightclub and becomes a consultant to the LAPD.
