‘Lucifer’ season 5 finally has a confirmed release date.
The production on season 5 stalled in April 2020.
However, cast and crew returned to work two weeks ago to complete the final episodes of season five.
Lucifer is coming back to Netflix for season 5 for its first half part, with eight episodes, on August 21st.
Netflix defined season five is set to include 16 episodes.
Highlight for a “bloody” musical number, with singer Debbie Gibson guest-starring as a controlling mother in one episode.
Watch, at the end of the post, the teaser trailer released by Netflix to announce the premiere date.
Netflix renewed Lucifer for its sixth and final season.
In the announcement, the streaming service joked that this will really be the end of the series.
[END of UPDATE]
ALERT SPOILER about Lucifer Season 5!
Of course that the core cast will all return for Lucifer‘s new season on Netflix.
Tom Ellis, Lauren German, Rachael Harris, D.B. Woodside, Aimee Garcia, Kevin Alejandro, and Lesley-Ann Brandt.
Tricia Helfer, who appeared as Lucifer’s mother, Charlotte, will also return.
Perhaps the biggest casting news, however, is that 24 vet Dennis Haysbert will be playing God.
It’ll be the first time God has appeared in Lucifer and his presence should make for an exciting dynamic.
“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”Tom Ellis
Has Lucifer been renewed for season 6?
There’s no official confirmation by Netflix, but the path seems set for Season 6.
Tom Ellis and the showrunners inked new deals to return.
Allegedly because Tom rejected Warner’s initial offer, contract negotiations came to a halt in April.
However, Ellis is firmly on board now and the chances of a Season 6 are high.
