While we wait for news on a Lucifer season 5 renewal (and we could be waiting for a long time still), we just want to issue a reminder here on some simple thing: In the event one comes our way, there are absolutely many great stories still to be told!

Following the recent final table read of the season earlier this week, show executive producer Joe Henderson made it clear on Twitter that season 4 was certainly not planned to be the final one. That’s something that we’ve heard reassurances on time and time again, but isn’t it rather nice to hear it stated again? One of the ideas for season 4 was to base it, in part on some of the original ideas for the first half of season 4 had it received the typical network TV order of 22 episodes; that means, effectively, that there could be another meaty story to come, let alone whatever the writers have planned for even further down the road. We don’t foresee there being any shortage of stories in the near future, especially when you’ve assembled this particular cast and crew to go out there and try and deliver on some fun, exciting material.
Season 4 appears to be, in part, a story about relationships and trying to define who you are in the present versus who you were in the past. That may be one of the biggest reasons why Inbar Lavi is around as Eve. Think of her this way — she represents in a lot of ways the person that Lucifer was at a certain part on his life, and we remain curious what her arrival means for the devil in the long-term. Does she cause him to revert back to his old ways in some shape or form, or does Lucifer prove both to her and others that he has somehow evolved? Are we looking at a character who is going to stay the same from who he was at the end of season 3?
Of course, this season will be so much more complex than just being about Lucifer and Eve — there are many other important characters to fold in here and, to go along that, hopefully some exciting mysteries and backstories to explore. Ten episodes may not be a lot, but there’s a lot of material that could be crammed in there.
As of right now, we’re hoping to see Lucifer season 4 at some point within the first few months of 2019.
