Lucifer will come back to Netflix for season 5 in 2020, and it will unfortunately also be the last season of Lucifer, but it will be divided in two. Here’s what we know about Lucifer’s 5th season on Netflix, how the cast responded to its final renewal, why it was the last season, and what we could expect in the following season.
As you might have heard, Lucifer is the new resurrection series from Netflix. It was able to pick up the Fox show, which canceled the series after 3 seasons last year. After an extensive fan campaign to save the show, the revival came. Netflix in the USA did not stream Lucifer, and the show’s ratings in some of Netflix’s remote regions were thought to be what persuaded Netflix to take the cloak up and continue with the story of Lucifer.
At the beginning of the year, Lucifer added the early seasons to Netflix, and while all the previous seasons are not available everywhere on Netflix, season 4 exclusively premiered around Netflix on 8 May 2019.
There is no official release date for final season, but we expect that the first eight Lucifer Season 5 episodes will be released in the Spring or Summer of the year 2020 on Netflix. Nonetheless, Netflix can choose to postpone its release further to allow anticipations as this is the final season.
We were initially told that Lucifer would be ten final season episodes, but we now know, from July 2019, that Netflix ordered the series. The series has been increased to 16, episodes which means that we will have nearly 16 hours of new content in 2020.
Tom Ellis and Lauren German will probably take over as Detective Chloe Decker and Lucifer Morningstar. Dennis Haysbert was also identified as the great Almighty and former boss of Lucifer, spoken in Season 3 by the author Neil Gaiman.
In the final episode, Lucifer is back home, trying to contain the fire now boiling over into Los Angeles. Chloe and Lucifer both show their love for one another by claiming, “Eve was never their first love.”
Throughout the season, we have watched Chloe struggle to deal with the fact that Lucifer has a supernatural dimension.
Season 4 will continue future seasons with the demons back in hell, now realizing that Lucifer never plans to come home.
The episode ends with Lucifer saying his final goodbye to Chloe, who will only return home briefly, hopefully.
