Lucifer’s bloody hell saga is heading back to Netflix for season 5 as its final season. Here’s what we know about season 5 of Lucifer on Netflix, the casts’ reaction towards its renewal, and many more.
Lucifer is Netflix’s latest revival show from FOX which canceled the series after three seasons last year. However, with massive support from fans, Netflix saved the show.
In fact, Netflix US hadn’t actually streamed Lucifer at all and it’s believed that the show’s high ratings in some of Netflix’s international regions are what convinced Netflix to pick up the mantel and continue Lucifer’s story.
The early seasons of Lucifer were added to Netflix at the beginning of the year, and its season 4 premiered exclusively on Netflix internationally last May 8, 2019.
Official Renewal Status and Other Information
The series was given its season 5 order last May 7. However, it’s a bittersweet announcement as it is already the show’s last season.
“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,” Netflix said in a statement to Hollywood Reporter.
In late June 2019, Ildy took to Twitter to confirm that they’re heading back to the writer’s room in July 2019 with a photo on the 12th saying that the entire team is back in the writer’s room.
There are also few announcements about who will be returning to the director’s chair in season 5, with Richard Speight, Jr. returning as a director in the latest season.
Last September 2019, season 5 had begun filming. The news came accompanied by an image of the majority of the cast lined up in the first table read.
The filming then began from September 6 onwards.
New Cast Announcement and Episode Names
Last month, the first new cast announcement for season 5 became official. Erik Aude has been cast as Rod and is currently only scheduled to appear in episode 1.
At the end of August 2019, some of the episodes’ names and its writer and director are revealed. Expect to hear more about the episode names and who is returning to write and direct.
Episode 501 – “Really Sad Devil Guy” – Written by Jason Ning, Directed by Eagle Egilsson
Episode 502 – “Lucifer! Lucifer! Lucifer!” – Written by Ildy Modrovich, Directed by Sherwin Shilati
Episode 503 – “!Diablo!” – Written by Mike Coats, Directed by Claudia Yarny
Episode 504 – “It Never Ends Well for the Chicken” – Aiyana White, Directed by Viet Nguyen
Lucifer season 5 initially has 10 episodes for its final season but as of July 2019, Netflix has given an expanded order to the show, giving the series 16 episodes.
So, yes! We have 16 hours’ worth of new content to look forward to in the summer of 2020.
