Once again Lucifer, a demon, is about to return from hell to reside in Los Angeles and run a club. Yes, here we have good and bad news. Good is very shortly the season 5 of Lucifer will be available in your binge-watch list and bad is, it is last and the final season.
You can’t keep a fallen angel down. Well said for Lucifer. Firstly cancelled by Fox and then picked up by Netflix, supernatural drama Lucifer is recently renewed for a fifth and final season. It’s filming is now underway.
Thanking Netflix for the same showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich on the renewal said, “We are so incredibly thankful to Netflix for resurrecting our show last season, and now let us finish the story of Lucifer on our terms. The best is yet to come!”
So here is something cooking for you in the Lucifer’s upcoming final season.
Lucifer Season 5 Release Date
As the trailer is not out yet no specific date has been set for season 5. Although a prediction of 2020 release is expected. Sources said that all episodes will drop simultaneously on Netflix.
And to make it more special the last season will give you more than your expectations. The show’s final season will be 16 episodes.
Netflix has extended the order for Lucifer season 5. Instead of the previously announced 10 episodes now it will be catered in 16. Similar to the final season of fellow Netflix show BoJack Horseman, the final season of Lucifer will be released in two separate parts.
During an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show Tom Ellis recently said: “Season five of Lucifer is going to be split into two halves.” He added, “Netflix is going to drop eight episodes, there’s going to be a little break, and then they’re going to drop another eight more episodes.”
Who will be back for season 5? Cast
Of course, the regular character Tom Ellis will be returning with us. Cast regulars Kevin Alejandro, Lauren German, D.B. Woodside, Scarlett Estevez, and Lesley-Ann Brandt are all also coming back.
It was also recently announced that Dennis Haysbert, well known for his appearances in commercials for Allstate Insurance has been cast in a very important role.
Haysbert will play a vital role in God. Yes, this is the first time that God will appear in the series. On-screen, he will be appearing in with his sons Lucifer and Amenadiel who are played by Ellis and Woodside, respectively.
Dennis’ character is out but not the duration of his appearance on screen. But viewers can assume he will be taking the role as a recurring antagonist for Lucifer to do battle with as the season ramps up to the imminent Armageddon of the final episodes.
A season involving God and the Devil dealing with their moral differences would certainly make for a refreshing change. It will bring something new from other apocalyptic narratives that viewers have already seen.
