The King of hell is returning for 5th instalment this year!!

Our smooth-talking Devil, 'Lucifer' is coming back to Netflix for season five in summer 2020 but sadly, we still don’t have an official release date. It doesn’t look like the series will appear in June 2020 either. Here’s an up-to-date guide to what we know about season five of Lucifer on Netflix, what we can expect from the story, the episode titles, the production schedule and what the chances are for season 6 of Lucifer.

As you may have heard, Lucifer is Netflix’s latest revival show. It managed to pick up the show from FOX who cancelled the series after three seasons last year. The revival came after a massive fan campaign to save the show.

The early seasons of Lucifer were added to Netflix at the beginning of 2019 and although all of the previous seasons aren’t available on Netflix everywhere, season four premiered exclusively on Netflix around the world on May 8th, 2019.

The new June 2020 list implies it’s not due out in June (unless it’s a surprise addition) which leaves current release predictions as either July or August 2020.

On May 7th, 2019, the series was given its season five order. However, it’s a bittersweet announcement as the show has been given a final season order. However, rumours are rife that there could be seasons 6 and 7 as well. As of December 2019, they had completed the table read for episode nine. We believe that’ll be the final episode of part one for Lucifer given the fact its episode name includes a spoiler and the fact the writers and cast have both said how emotional the episode is.

In March 2020, alongside the global Coronavirus epidemic, it was revealed that Lucifer was one of the many shows at WBTV and Netflix that had been temporarily postponed.

Firstly, let’s just recap the final episode as there’s a lot to dive into.

The final episode (episode ten – “Who’s da New King of Hell?”) sees Lucifer return home to help contain hell which is now spilling into Los Angeles. Chloe and Lucifer also reveal their love for each other (no surprise there) with Lucifer saying “his first love was never Eve”.

Throughout the season, we’ve seen Chloe struggle to come to terms with the fact Lucifer has a demonic side which is why the introduction of Eve made sense.

Season four sets up future seasons with the demons back home in hell now knowing that Lucifer never intends on returning home.

The episode closes with Lucifer saying his final goodbye to Chloe as he returns home albeit hopefully only temporarily.

Eve also departed by the end of season four, but we don’t believe her story has completed yet either. She clearly made amends and saw the error in her ways throughout the season. She’s now gone off to find herself but could easily be brought back later. Unlike the first season, Lucifer won’t be able to strike a deal to return to Earth. He’ll have to find a replacement ruler for the underworld to prevent it from spilling into the real world. Lucifer would opt to ask one of his other siblings.

Some have speculated that Lillith (Adam’s first wife) could return with Eve saying that she “tamed the beasts of the night”. Now this is some piece of news. We are truly excited for the return of Lucifer Season 5, even though it could very well be the last season.


I hope I don’t get in trouble saying... the premiere date is coming SOON!!! Like... soon soon. #Finally #luciferseason5date #Lucifer #LuciferSeason5
