Ildy Modrovich, an executive producer on the cancelled, then revived and soon to end again “Lucifer” TV series, has issued a statement on social media asking fans to accept the fact that the series is entering its final season.
The show ran for three full seasons on FOX before the network axed it. Netflix saved the property following a fan outcry, picking it up for a shorter fourth season which aired earlier this year. Shortly after that, it was announced a fifth season would be going ahead and it would be the show’s last.
Fans have already begun some lobbying for a sixth season of the show, but Modrovich on Twitter has now asked them to effectively stand down, saying that they announced the show’s ending this early was to allow fans time to process it and to let them know they are ending it on their own terms and “a fight won’t change things right now”.
At 77 episodes over five seasons total, “Lucifer” will now be an official Netflix show with one of the largest episode counts to date. You can read the full statement below:
