Chicago Fire alum Lauren German’s current series Lucifer is ending, and now fans know how many episodes will be in the final season.

Former Chicago Fire star Lauren German will be returning for one last season of her current show Lucifer, and fans now know exactly how long that last season is going to be.

Based on the Vertigo comic of the same name, the series was cancelled by FOX last May and then eventually rescued by streaming service Netflix. However, Netflix will also be saying goodbye after just two seasons.

So how many episodes are left? Executive producer Ildy Modrovich answered that exact question on Twitter recently: the fifth and last season will be 10 episodes long.

That’s the same amount of episodes as season 4, which arrived on Netflix last month. Of course, it’s a lot shorter than the FOX seasons—which had 13, 18 and 26 respectively—but broadcast TV has always had the longest seasons, which is why shows like Chicago Fire get anywhere from 20 to 24 episodes each cycle.

By the time Lucifer ends, though, Lauren German will have starred in that series for more than double the time she spent on Chicago Fire. She only lasted two seasons as paramedic Leslie Shay before being killed off. As the co-lead of this series, she’s had more screen time and some of the best writing of her career.

So One Chicago fans who’ve missed her, or just want to see her in a very different kind of role, would do well to binge-watch the latest season and prepare for those final ten episodes.

The fourth season has some big developments, including Lauren’s character Chloe Decker having to come to terms with the title character (a marvelous Tom Ellis) literally being the devil, and this concluding go-around will likely be even bigger.
