Lucifer Season 5 is going to be released at some point later this year.
This will be the show’s final season on Netflix and that’s not going to be very easy for most of us Lucifer fans.
The Lucifer fanbase has been one of the most incredible and vocal fanbases of any show ever.
When Fox opted to cancel the show after Season 3, fans took to Twitter to try and get another network to pick it up.
Fans of the show just weren’t ready to say goodbye to the DC Comics-based TV programme.
They ended up getting the hashtag SaveLucifer trending on Twitter and it was a pretty big deal.
It all resulted in Netflix swooping in and saving the show.
Lucifer Season 4 was a hit, so Season 5 should be too
They obviously saw the numbers and thought it would be a good opportunity for them, and they were right.
Netflix made Lucifer Season 4 and it ended up being a huge hit with their subscribers.
It was revealed that Lucifer Season 4 was the most in-demand digital original in May 2019.
According to third-party data from Parrot Analytics Lucifer was a hit for Netflix.
They managed to work out that Lucifer was the most in-demand digital original in the United States in May by quite some margin.
They also managed to work out that the show was the second most popular comic book adaptation.
What’s Going To Happen in Season 5?
It was only beaten by The CW’s The Flash. That’s pretty impressive.
Netflix doesn’t release their viewing numbers, so I had to rely on third-party data, yet they tend to be pretty accurate.
Anyway, what’s going to happen in Lucifer Season 5?
There have been so many fan theories about what will happen in the show’s final season.
What I’m going to do here is lay out the facts for you and you can decide for yourselves how the show will end.
The first thing we found out was that they had cast Dennis Haysbert as God.
This means Lucifer will come face-to-face with his father in the final season.
That’s great news and something we’ve all been looking forward to.
Lucifer Season 5 will see Amenadiel go to Hell
The second thing we found out thanks to an image from Entertainment Weekly is that Amenadiel is going to go back to Hell.
He’s going to go down there to visit his brother.
Actor D.B. Woodside revealed in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that his character, Amenadiel, will reluctantly go down to Hell to see his brother Lucifer (played by Tom Ellis) on an urgent matter.
“He definitely goes to Hell,” D.B. Woodside told Entertainment Weekly.
“There’s something going on, on Earth that Amenadiel is not able to handle by himself.”
The third thing we know, again thanks to an image from Entertainment Weekly, is that Eve (played by Inbar Lavi) is going to be returning.
“We are so excited to have Inbar back!” Lucifer showrunners Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson told Entertainment Weekly in a statement.
However, the went on to tease that Eve and Maze might end up starting things back up again.
“Last we saw her, Eve broke Maze’s heart. Soooo… a reunion between our favourite demon and the original sinner should go smoothly, right?”
That’s already quite a lot of stuff, but there’s more.
There’s going to be a musical episode
We also know that Lucifer Season 5 will feature a full-on musical episode, which is a first for the show.
This news comes from Entertainment Weekly yet again, who were informed that Lucifer Season 5 Episode 10 will be a “full-blown musical episode”.
They were also told that the episode would be titled “Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam”, and I’m pretty sure Lucifer will get to say that line in the episode.
The episode will be an hour-long (yes) and will feature “multiple musical numbers”.
As tends to be the case with most Netflix Originals, we don’t have a release date for Lucifer Season 5 yet.
However, we do know that the final season will be 16 episodes long and will be split into two parts.
This little bit of news was revealed when Tom Ellis was talking to Kelly Clarkson who was invited to visit the cast on set.
This was where Tom revealed: “Season 5 of Lucifer is going to be split into two halves.
“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.”
Lucifer Season 5’s finale is going to be a tear-jerker
So that’s already quite a bit of news about Lucifer Season 5.
There’s a lot of stuff about the final season that we know, but there’s plenty of stuff we have no idea about yet.
We don’t know whether Lucifer will get out of Hell. We don’t know whether Lucifer and Chloe will get back together, and we have no idea how the show will end.
All that we know about the show’s finale is that we’ll need tissues.
Will we cry happy or sad tears. I can’t answer that question, but one of the Netflix show’s stars, Aimee Garcia, was talking to Entertainment Tonight (via The Daily Express) about the final season, and she revealed that it will be an emotional watch.
“If the devil’s got daddy issues, or family issues, it’s a universal concept. But we have on season left and it’s going to be our best yet,” she told Entertainment Tonight.
Garcia was then asked whether she knew how the show would end, and she started to laugh nervously yet she revealed that she does know how it’ll all end.
Lucifer’s ending will be very special
“I do, I do know how it ends, and I will be totally honest: When they told me how it ends I may have gotten a little bit emotional, and the first thing I did was touch my heart.”
She then revealed that audiences will react in much the same way as she did to the show’s conclusion.
“So, I think you guys are going to hopefully have the same response,” she began.
“I’m sure there will be a lot of kleenexes – especially anyone who’s a hopeless romantic out there.
“We have a Beauty and the Beast love story going on. You’re going to cry your eyes out, and we’re going to rip out your heart. But we’re going to go out with a bang!”
