While fans of Netflix's Lucifer are still bracing for their final run with Tom Ellis' devilish lead, the streamer is doing what it can to extend that final run. The streamer announced on Friday that the series' fifth season will go from 10 to 16 episodes – which means the creative team will have six additional hours to not pull a Dexter (thought we were going Game of Thrones there, didn't you?).
Here's a look at the official announcement of the final season's increased episode order; followed by the original tweet announcing the series' return to Netflix for a fifth and final season, as well as the official statement from the streamer at the time of the series' renewal:

"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."
Showrunners and executive producers Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson expressed their gratitude to not only Netflix but also the dedicated fanbase for giving them the opportunity to end the show on their terms:
"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. Most importantly, we want to thank the fans for their incredible passion and support. The best is yet to come!!"
