Lucifer season 5 Netflix release date: When will Part 2 be released?


LUCIFER season 5 is coming to Netflix in Spring 2020 but Tom Ellis recently revealed the final season will be split into two halves. So when will Lucifer Part 2 be released?

Lucifer has come on quite a journey since it first aired in January 2016 on Fox. After three seasons and 78 episodes on the network, the fantasy comedy-drama was cancelled. But all hope was not lost and after a successful Save Lucifer campaign from fans, Netflix recovered the show, renewing it for two more seasons in June 2018. Season four premiered in May 2019 with 10 episodes.

Netflix confirmed season five would be the last – but added the final season would have 16 episodes and would be split into two halves for the first time in the show’s history.

Lucifer season five will have 16 episodes in total, with the show airing in two parts.

This is the first time Lucifer has aired in two halves on Netflix, so it is hard to perfect exactly when both instalments will drop.

Lucifer season four premiered in May this year, so the first part of season five is expected to follow suit.

As for the second part, it is almost impossible to tell exactly when.

Luckily, Tom Ellis who plays titular Lucifer Morningstar in the series has been giving away some clues.

Speaking to Kelly Clarkson on The Kelly Clarkson Show, Ellis said: “Season five of Lucifer is going to be split into two halves.

“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.”

Hopefully, Lucifer fans will not have to wait a year between seasons like other Netflix shows.

For example, Arrested Development fans had to wait a year between two halves of the fifth season of the show, as did Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt viewers.

As Ellis himself teased “a little break”, hopefully, this will be the case.

The final season will be six episodes longer than season four, which Lucifer fans are pleased about as originally there was only supposed to be 10.

The first three seasons of Lucifer aired on Fox and featured 26 episodes per season, so fans were saddened to only be treated to 10 when the show moved to Netflix.

Announcing the end of Lucifer co-showrunners Idly Modrovich and Joe Henderson said in a statement: “We are so incredibly thankful to Netflix for letting us finish the story of Lucifer on our terms.

“Most importantly, we want to thank the fans for their incredible passion and support. The best is yet to come!”

Modrovich also wrote a letter to Lucifer fans which she shared on her Twitter account.

She wrote: “We know there’s been a lot of confusion over the recent announcement that is our last season.

“Many are wondering if they should fight for more? While we feel just as sad as many of you do that this marvellous ride is coming to an end, a fight won’t change things right now.

“We spoke to our partners at Netflix and Warner Bros, and you should all know TREMENDOUS care and consideration was put into making this decision.

“In fact, the whole reason they decided to announce that it was our fifth and final season simultaneously is because they know how devoted and passionate our fans (and we!) are and wanted to give y’all (and us!) as much time as they could to accept and process the news. And for that, we’re incredibly grateful.

“But mostly, we’re all beyond grateful that they gave us this new life in the first place. AND a chance to give this story the ending it deserves.

“And, of course… none of that would have EVER happened if it weren’t for YOU. We can truly never thank you enough for that.

“This has been and will continue to be an incredibly beautiful and unique experience.

“So, on behalf of the cast and Joe and I, we look forward to spending this final season basking in the Lucie-love with you!!”

What will happen in Lucifer season 5?

At the end of season four, Lucifer (played by Tom Ellis) returned to rule hell to prevent literal hell being released on earth.

Unfortunately, this meant leaving his first love, Chloe Decker (Lauren German) behind on Earth.

Season five of Lucifer could go in numerous directions. For example, Lucifer could take the risk and return to Earth or Chloe could venture to hell to join him.

With filming underway, cast members and some of the crew have been dropping some clues about what will happen in the final season on their social media accounts.

For example, season four will be an alternative universe episode with the Lucifer gang time travelling to the 1940s.

Fans will also be pleased to hear Trisha Helfer will be reprising her role as Lucifer’s mother The Goddess/Charlotte Richards.

Joining the Lucifer cast is General Hospital star, Matthew Bohrer – he will play a man named Donovan Glover.
