Lucifer rises from the dead again at Netflix
Netflix picked up Lucifer in 2018 after its initial debut on Fox, where it was canceled after three seasons.
After the streamer announced that the series would end with season five, Netflix had second thoughts and in February, showrunners inked new deals and title star Tom Ellis recently re-signed.
Fans of the dark show can look forward to a return of the cast regulars: Kevin Alejandro, Lauren German, Aimee Garcia, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Graham McTavish, and Inbar Levi.
Will there be a sixth season of Lucifer on Netflix?
Lucifer was not a breakout hit but had respectable ratings when Fox canceled it at the end of the 2017-2018 season. Seeming a diamond in the coal mine, Netflix bought it and ran a 10-episode fourth season beginning in May 2019.

Season five was almost done filming when the coronavirus pandemic halted production in March. Then, like a spirit rising from the underworld, Lucifer was given new life as the streamer announced this week that Lucifer season five had a premiere date.
At this time the premiere date covers the first eight episodes, and there is no word when the rest of the episodes will air.
Lucifer is based on a DC Comics character. The show stars Ellis as the devil, whose thrill overseeing the souls in hell burns out. He decides to pick up stakes and head to Los Angeles. There he runs a nightclub and somehow becomes a consultant for the LAPD.
