Lucifer's final season can't get here soon enough, and now we'll have to wait a little bit longer to find out how the beloved show will end. Star Tom Ellis revealed on The Kelly Clarkson Show on Monday that the series' upcoming final season will be split in two.

"Season 5 of Lucifer is going to be split into two halves," he told Clarkson, her mother, and her sister during their recent visit to the show's set. "Netflix is going to drop eight episodes, then there's going to be a little break, and then they're going to drop another eight episodes."

Rumors of a split season first began to swirl when Netflix ordered six additional episodes for Season 5 during production, but now we have it confirmed. And while having to wait for the final batch of episodes is going to be hard, it also means fans won't have to say goodbye to the series quite so soon.

Season 5, which will see the return of Tricia Helfer's Charlotte and feature a musical episode, marks the second season produced for Netflix; the show's first three seasons aired on Fox. The series also stars Lauren German, DB Woodside, Kevin Alejandro, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Rachael Harris, Aimee Garcia, and Scarlett Estevez.

Lucifer Seasons 1-4 are streaming on Netflix.
