Modrovich said discussions about ending the series after its fifth and final season came after discussion with Netflix and Warner Bros. "And while we feel just as sad as many of you do that, this marvelous ride is coming to an end, a fight won't change things right now."
Lucifer is produced by WBTV in association with Jerry Bruckheimer Television. The series is executive-produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, Joe Henderson, Ildy Modrovich, Sheri Elwood and KristieAnne Reed.
At 77 episodes through five seasons, Lucifer would be one of the longest-running Netflix original series. The episode count is between veterans Orange Is the New Black (91) and House Of Cards (73).
TV shopped the series to steaming services and premium cable networks. Buoyed by strong fan support, which made Lucifer the No.1 trending topic worldwide on the day of its May 2018 cancellation, series producer Warner Bros.
Netflix has decided to give the Devil his due, and has expanded the final Season 5 episode order, adding six more hours, bringing the total to 16 episodes.
In a Twitter post, Modrovich tried to head off efforts by fans who were already contemplating lobbying for a sixth season of the show. Netflix picked up a fourth and fifth season of the comic book drama after it was canceled by Fox after three seasons, in part because of the huge outpouring of support from fans of the series.
Last month, Lucifer executive producer Ildy Modrovich tried to gently break the news to fans that their beloved TV show is entering its final season.
The move to add additional episodes may have come from impassioned fan support, the same base that got the former Fox show moved to Netflix. The addition was announced on the official NetflixUS Twitter account on Friday.
Lucifer is based on the comic book characters created by Neil Gaiman for DC’s Vertigo Imprint, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for Vertigo, stars Tom Ellis, Lauren German, Rachael Harris, DB Woodside, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Aimee Garcia, Tricia Helfer, Scarlett Estevez and Kevin Alejandro.
The series follows the charming, charismatic and devilishly handsome Lord of Hell, Lucifer Morningstar (Ellis), helping LAPD detective Chloe Decker (German) take down criminals.

mom by night," as she describes herself on Twitter, wrote, "All we can do now is tell them how we feel!! Let’s yell and scream!!! Ildy Modrovich, "showrunner/writer for Lucifer by day… Let’s kick some social media ASS. Give them HELL, guys!!!!!" Let’s trend.


Judging by the social media reactions from Henderson's cast and colleagues, he's not kidding.


Henderson followed up the apology with a promise that the finale "is the best hour of television I've been lucky to write," and reassured fans that the episode "wraps up everything from the season," though "what it teases for season 4… well, maybe, just maybe, we can #SaveLucifer and show you."


Here are the posts, so far:
Minutes earlier, Henderson had confirmed the cancelation with a tweet saying, "So… Heartbreaking doesn't begin to describe." (See all tweets below). yeah. I loved this show so damn much and everyone put their heart and soul into it. #Lucifer has been cancelled. And it f*cking HURTS.
"I’ve grown up on this show," Brandt wrote. "Married my husband during season 1, found out I was pregnant on season 2, and had my son season 3. Being your Mazikeen has been so very special to me for so many reasons."


 
"It has been the most amazing experience over the past 3 years playing Lucifer," tweeted Tom Ellis, "and falling in love with you, the fans."
Lesley-Ann Brandt, who plays Lucifer's Mazikeen, posted a lengthy Instagram message (read the entire message below) praising her castmates, writers, producers, fans and the production's "no asshole" policy."
I'm so sorry for that." "We created a season finale with a huge cliffhanger so that there was no way Fox could cancel us," Henderson tweeted this afternoon after getting the news. "Instead, we're going to frustrate the hell out of you fans.
Henderson advised fans to "MAKE NOISE," though cautioned he had "no idea" if the show had a chance of coming back. "We have so many more stories to tell." "I know sure as anything that everyone wants to," he wrote.


Not only has Fox canceled the devilish series after three seasons, but showrunner Joe Henderson says his team created a season finale "with a huge cliffhanger" that's going to "frustrate the hell" out of fans. Lucifer viewers might be in for a double heartbreak.
