The Devil is getting his due, and it's going to be a two-parter. While we still don't have a set premiere date for the final season of Lucifer (currently slated for 2020), we do know a bit more about how the show's going out, which is surprisingly thanks to Kelly Clarkson.
The daytime show host aired a segment on Oct. 29, in which she took her family around the set of the Netflix series. Along with her mother Jeanie and sister Alyssa, the singer met the dazzling cast of the series for some behind-the-scenes peeks, including a brief look around "where the real magic happens," aka Lucifer's bedroom. Jeanie and Alyssa proclaimed the visit was the best trip they've ever taken - which the former made sure to note included safaris and award shows - so it's safe to say a fun time was had by all.
Towards the end of their visit, Tom Ellis revealed some exclusive news to Clarkson and her family. "Season five of Lucifer is going to be split into two halves," he said. "Netflix is going to drop eight episodes, there's going to be a little break, and then they're going to drop another eight more episodes." Fans already knew the fifth season had been extended to sixteen episodes because Netflix announced it back in September, but now we know it's not dropping in one bingeable package like the previous season!
This isn't the first time Netflix has split up a final season; the sixth season of the acclaimed BoJack Horseman will also be delivered in two parts. Now, fans just need to know when the two-part finale of Lucifer will drop, so that they can fully prepare to say goodbye to the Devil and company.
