This is according to FlixPatrol.
The show was released on May 28th, and since then it’s just been watched by a huge amount of people.
Fans the world over have been tuning into Netflix to watch the second part of Lucifer Season 5.
It seems like they’ve really been loving what they’ve been watching.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Lucifer Season 5 Part 2 ends up breaking many Netflix records.
This all comes after it was revealed that Netflix had greenlit the show for a sixth and final season.
For a very long time, people involved in the show were working under the assumption that Lucifer Season 5 would be the show’s last.
This is one of the reasons why they split the show into two parts.
Netflix only tends to do this with the final seasons of their shows.
It’s actually quite a smart idea because it extends interest in the show and increases viewership numbers.
Lucifer Season 5 Part 2 is Netflix’s number one show at the moment
This is something that Netflix actually desperately needs because they don’t release new episodes of their shows weekly.
What ends up happening with Netflix shows is that people binge-watch them in one weekend and then interest in the show dies pretty quickly only a few days after release.
What releasing episodes of shows weekly does is extends interest in the show and subsequently, viewership numbers go up if the show is creating a lot of buzz.
That’s why Amazon Prime Video and Disney Plus are now releasing episodes of their shows on a weekly basis.
However, splitting seasons of their big shows in two does a similar thing.
People will binge-watch the first part of the show’s season when it’s first released.
They will then re-watch that season before then going on to watch the second part of the season which is released later on.
It’s a smart idea and it does actually work.
However, releasing shows on a weekly basis does seem to bring in more numbers.
