Kevin Alejandro will have his last hurrah…
Netflix has ordered a sixth and final season of Lucifer, starring the 44-year-old Mexican American actor.
The announcement acknowledges the fact that the streamer previously renewed the series for a fifth season, which also was billed as final, calling Season 6 “FINAL final.”
The news comes almost a month after series star Tom Ellis closed a deal to return as the title character for a sixth season.
Netflix started talks with series producer Warner Bros. Television about another installment of the comic book drama ahead of the fifth season premiere.
Alejandro and the rest of the cast and executive producers Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson also closed new deals for another season.
The series follows Ellis’ Lucifer, who is bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell. He resigns his throne and abandons his kingdom for Los Angeles, where he gets his kicks helping LAPD detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German).
In the fifth season, the stakes are higher than ever. Secrets will be revealed, beloved characters will die, and we’ll finally get an answer to the question, “will they or won’t they?”
In addition to Ellis and Alejandro, who portraysDetective Daniel Espinoza, the series also stars Rachael Harris, DB Woodside, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Aimee Garcia, Tricia Helfer and Scarlett Estevez.
Lucifer is produced by WBTV in association withJerry Bruckheimer Television.
Netflix rescued the supernatural drama from Fox, where it was canceled after three seasons.
