Ever faithful to your story, ever faithful to your journey, your body, your heart. Never more to speak as you speak but never without your words. Grateful am I for seasons. Grateful I am for lessons. Grateful I am for challenges. Grateful I am.

"For what was, what is and what is meant to be, THANK YOU….for all of it," she added.

And Aimee Garcia, who has starred as Ella since season two of Lucifer, struggled to control her emotional as she told fans the gig had been one of the "most fulfilling" of her career.

"It has been a wild ride of ups and downs. We were canceled, picked up, renewed by a global fan base, shut down during a pandemic & we still managed to have fun & play because of our incredible Lucifer family," she wrote alongside the video. "I’m grateful, honoured & humbled to have been your Ella for 5 years .... BIG HUG."
