After a long wait and a little rumored shakiness there at the finish line, Lucifer fans had much to celebrate last week. First came the news that the Netflix series would be returning for its fifth season on August 21 (with Supernatural star Rob Benedict aka Chuck aka God guest-starring), and then we learned that a deal was in place for a sixth and "final" season. Not too shabby, right? But just in case fans of the Tom Ellis/Lauren German-starring series need even more reason to get into a "hellish" mood, how about the following tweet from writer/co-showrunner Joe Henderson showing the writers room for the sixth season is already working its magic:

Now that she's free to talk about it (so wait, as showrunner would she have to yell at herself if she spoiled anything), here's Modrovich's thoughts on the announcement:
