As if it wasn’t enough that Netflix rescued Lucifer from eternal damnation (also known as cancellation), the streaming service has since renewed it for an additional TWO seasons, meaning we have plenty more devilish stories to look forward to. Details about season five took a long time to get here, but we now have a full-length trailer for the new episodes which reveals some big surprises waiting for the whole gang.
Here’s everything we know about the upcoming season of Lucifer:
Showrunner Ildy Modrovich has teased fans on Twitter by saying that they’ll love Detective Dan Espinoza (Kevin Alejandro) even more after watching season five, which also has some experimental installments up its sleeve.
For starters, we’re confirmed to be getting the show’s first ever musical episode, which will apparently offer a compelling story reason for elaborate theatrics and feature a guest appearance from singer-songwriter Debbie Gibson.
In addition, some amazing new pictures have been released for a special “noir” episode of Lucifer, which will be entirely black-and-white in homage to the crime serials of years gone by. On top of that, Lucifer has officially been renewed for season six as well, with a “final, final” outing for Tom Ellis confirmed to be in the pipeline. In fact, scripts for the sixth season are already being written, as the show’s talented creative team are hard at work (remotely) to ensure that Lucifer goes out with a bang.
Yes! Netflix renewed the show for a fifth season in June 2019, which was initially intended to be the final outing for Lucifer and his allies – but that looks like it may no longer be the case.
TV Line reported in March 2020 that Netflix is considering extending the series for a sixth season, with star Tom Ellis renewing his contract for a potential return. Don’t get your hopes up just yet as we’re still awaiting confirmation, but things certainly look to be moving in the right direction. In the meantime, Netflix has expanded season five from an initial order of 10 episodes to a meatier 16, putting the upcoming series at a similar to earlier instalments.
The season will be split in two, as Ellis previously confirmed: “Netflix is going to drop eight episodes, and then there’s going to be a little break, and then they’re going to drop another eight episodes.”
