Lauren German will be appearing in more Lucifer episodes as Netflix has ordered extra chapters of the Chicago Fire alum’s current series.

Fans of original Chicago Fire cast member Lauren German have more of her to look forward to next year with some extra Lucifer.

German’s current series has had its upcoming season extended from ten to 16 episodes by Netflix. The fifth season, which is also the show’s last, is scheduled to stream sometime during 2020, though a premiere date hasn’t been announced yet.

The series stars Tom Ellis (Rush) as the titular Lord of Hell, who’s settled in Los Angeles and taken up fighting crime. His partner and love interest is LAPD detective Chloe Decker, played by German, in her first series regular role since being written out of Chicago Fire.

It was a cult favorite when it aired on FOX for its first three seasons, before being cancelled due to lower ratings. But Netflix swept in and saved the show for two more seasons, though it then made the decision to end it after season 5.

One Chicago fans may also know it because Louis Herthum, who played Pat Halstead on Chicago Med, guest-starred as Chloe’s father.

Furthermore, Chicago Med star Brian Tee appeared in an episode as the murderer! So there’s a lot of reasons for viewers of our favorite franchise to give it a watch (and Netflix has the past seasons as well as the latest one).

What’s great about Lucifer is seeing Lauren German in another leading role. By the time the show ends next year, she’ll have played Chloe Decker for more than double the time she portrayed Leslie Shay. And because Chloe is the female lead, there’s different storylines and more of a focus on her character, too.

Check out this behind-the-scenes featurette with Lauren and the rest of the cast, then catch up now on Netflix before those 16 episodes come your way in 2020!
