"TVLine has learned exclusively that Netflix is in talks with Warner Bros. Television to extend the hellacious drama’s lifespan beyond the previously announced (and forthcoming) fifth and “final” season. Netflix and Warner Bros. have yet to comment on the Season 6 buzz."

The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was convincing Fox that he didn't exist

I hope they can pull off some insane Legends crossover if the show continues.

At the very least, a reference to Crisis.
One thing to keep in mind is that Crisis takes place before Season 1 of the show, apparently, so a reference to it would be pretty weird.

Constantine showing up could possibly be a thing, though.

Yeah, any reference would need to be related to Constantine himself, I would think.

And considering that the Earth-Prime heroes have no idea that any of the other Earths came back, a real crossover is unlikely until that happens.

My very wild guess is that the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover cameo gave some kind of a bump in viewership for Lucifer on Netflix, so Netflix is now considering to do more Lucifer.

I stopped watching mid season 3 (a few episodes after the surfer-episode, which was one of the worst). I like some of the characters and the series has its moments - even if they are rare. But overall there is too much (really) dumb policework and not enough main plot. There are too many episodes in one season and it drags a lot, sometimes there is barely any progression in the story for five episodes in a row. Instead I gotta watch some boring and bad written murder case and cheesy side-plot. They could totally cut the seasons runtime in half.

The show has been very up and down over its run but the recent Netflix produced season was its best yet. I'm open to this if they actually have somewhere to go with the characters and not just filler episodes and romance teases

Awesome, I'd love another season. It's a fun show.

The CW shows get pretty crappy ratings, I doubt they gave it much a boost.

I know, that's why I said some kind of a bump, like maybe a few hundred thousand of new viewers.

That being said, all five episodes in the last crossover were also the most watched ones for each of the current seasons in the Arrowverse.

No, let it end with some dignity, shows are allowed to be just given a solid ending and then stop. Milking it will just lead to another season 3

I bailed on season 3. Got sick of it being 90% police procedural. Feels like a season that ditches that and focuses on the other stuff that felt like the comic might pull me back in.

Season 4 I hear is a lot better. That's when Netflix picked it up. Only 10 episodes so I think it's more focused. Have not seen it myself yet but my friend said it was the best season.

It constantly surprises me how many people I know watch this show. It's never discussed like GOT or some other high profile show, but when it does come up people are usually like "yeah, I watch that".

I found the first episode really rough, Lucifer wasn't really interesting or likeable and after iZombie I've had enough of police procedural with some the one weird character helping.

I recently fell in complete and total love with this show. It's not the comics of course, but this Lucifer is so freaking broken and dark and I can't help but love him help.

Season 6 would be amazing.
