Ever since it's unceremonious cancellation by Fox, Lucifer is a show that has proven that it's fans will do anything necessary to ensure that it survives. Just when we thought that Season 5 would be the last (which is what we have been told), Netflix might be having a change of heart. TVLine reports that negotiations are underway with Warner Bros. Television to keep Lucifer on the streamer for at least one more season.
This all seemed to star with the news that the fifth and final season of Lucifer would be expanded to 16 episodes. The plan was to air these in two separate 8 episode parts, but there is no word of that changing. What's interesting is that the writers and showrunners have begun to start posting their goodbyes on social media and reflecting on their time working on the show. Now, not only may that not be necessary, there might need to be a last minute push to bring them all back.
Of course, Warner Bros. and Netflix both have not commented on this report. In my opinion, TVLine has been very reliable with their scoops, especially when it relates to Lucifer. Given that, I have hope that we could see the show continue. It's also possible that Tom Ellis appearing in the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover may have sparked interest in finally bringing John Constantine into the world of Lucifer and giving us the full crossover the fans have been longing for (I know I'm not the only one!)
