Lucifer is returning for part one of its two-part fifth season in August 2020. Here’s an up-to-date guide to what we know about season 5 of Lucifer on Netflix, including what we can expect from the story, the episode titles, the production schedule, and confirmation that season six of Lucifer is a go too!
As you may have heard, Lucifer is Netflix’s latest revival show. It managed to pick up the show from FOX, who canceled the series after three seasons in 2018. The revival came after a massive fan campaign to save the show.
The early seasons of Lucifer were added to Netflix at the beginning of 2019 and although all of the previous seasons aren’t available on Netflix everywhere, season four premiered exclusively on Netflix around the world on May 8th, 2019.
The release date for Season 5A of Lucifer on Netflix globally is August 21st, 2020. In a statement to Hollywood Reporter, Netflix said: “We are thrilled that Lucifer fans around the world have embraced this series on Netflix, and we can’t wait to give them the big finish they’ve all been waiting for.”
Here are some more reactions from the cast of Lucifer on its season 5 renewal:
Ildy Modrovich who serves as the main showrunner said: “Whoop whoop!!!! Season 5 is coming!!! Thank you to our beautiful Lucifamily for all of your love and support!! And to @LuciferNetflix for being the best partners EVER!! It’s our final season so we’re planning to make it COUNT!!”
Joe Henderson who serves as the co-showrunner said this: “The fans brought us back to life. Now, we get to finish our story on our terms. Can’t wait for you guys to see what’s in store!”
Tom Ellis had this to say: “Well look what happened! A 5th and final season of #Lucifer is coming to @LuciferNetflix thank you to all you loyal #lucifans for watching…now let’s end this thing properly”
What we know about Lucifer season 5 story?
The trailer (see above) reveals that Chloe is not doing well after Lucifer departs. She’s in a downward spiral but Lucifer soon returns (or so it seems).
It’s then revealed that Lucifer is acting differently, but that’s because he is. The trailer then reveals that Lucifer is not himself because it’s his twin brother, Michael. Michael reveals he’s not only come to Earth to replace but also destroy Lucifer’s previous life.
The trailer ends with the two brothers battling it out.
In July 2020, EW got the exclusive first look at the upcoming noir episode. It’s set to be the fourth episode in the fifth season.
How many episodes will there be in season 5 of Lucifer?
Originally, we were told that Lucifer would be ten episodes final season but as of July 2019, we now know that Netflix has given an expanded order to the show.
It’s worth noting that the series is confirmed to be split into two halves, however. Part one will likely consist of eight episodes, with part two consisting of the same amount.
The series has been expanded to 16 episodes, meaning we’ll have nearly 16 hours worth of new content come 2020.
Will Lucifer return for season 6 on Netflix?
Up until the start of 2020, it was believed that season 5 was set to be the last for Lucifer on Netflix. However, several developments have built up meaning that we’re probably going to get more seasons post-season 5 on Netflix. Here’s what we know.
In February 2020, however, TVLine has reported that there have been ongoing talks between Netflix and Warner Bros. to keep Lucifer going beyond the fifth season. This included the showrunners signing up for another season and in March 2020, Tom Ellis signed on for more episodes.
