A season five of the show has not been commissioned yet, but it would be hard for bosses to ignore the fan clamour for the show to go on.
Now, Lucifer star Tom Ellis has weighed into the argument and is all for more seasons.
He told Collider: “I feel like we haven’t finished telling our story yet, without giving too many spoilers away.
“With any show you could ultimately finish at the end of any season, and you’re either left with a massive cliffhanger and people are left unsatisfied, or you get the opportunity to tell your story until the end.
“I think that we would all love to come back and do a season five. We’ll just have to see what Netflix says.”
That confirms it then. If Lucifer himself says a season five should be made then it should happen.
He also spoke about the move from Fox to Netflix and explains why moving to ten episodes, a lot less than when on Fox, has improved the quality.
He said: “What happens when you’re on a network and you have to do 22 episodes is that you end up diluting and elongating and really stretching out a story. It’s quite a challenge.
“The result of having ten episodes a season is actually a benefit for the show because you get the best version of it. You get the lean, great storytelling for all of our characters all the way through the ten episodes, and it makes it more compelling.
“Plus, now it all comes out at once, which means that people can do what they like to do and binge it.”
He is not the first star who is desperate for a season five to be produced.
Maze star Lesley-Ann Brandt has teased how fans’ voices will be heard and Netflix will listen.
She also spoke about the impact Netflix has had, especially for Maze.
She said: “Netflix is just a great home for us because they’re like, ‘We want you to do what you do.’ They’re such a young, vibrant team of executives and marketing people. Their perspective is just to be outside of the box, you know?
“I think what the writers have been smart about doing is giving layers and vulnerability to her.”
They joked Netflix only took up the show to show Tom naked.
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Tom explained the reason behind his character’s nudity on the show.
He said: “I think Joe Henderson, our showrunner, has been adamant that he wants to have my bum on screen for three seasons and now we can finally do that.”
