Developed by Tom Kapinos, Lucifer debuted on FOX in January 2016. This American TV series is an urban fantasy drama offering a completely different take on Lucifer, the demon. Since its release, the show has been a huge success with a high fanbase and a decent viewership.
Lucifer, as the name suggests, is a modern-day crime show based on the life of Lucifer. Lucifer rises from hell and settles in Los Angeles where he runs his club. He soon gets involved with the police and helps them in solving tricky criminal cases.
With an IMDb rating of 8.3/10 and the Tomatometer at 87%, the show has been a smash. After season 4 ended on a cliffhanger, the fans are now desperately waiting for Season 5.
Therefore, let’s dig into the details regarding the release date, cast, and plot for the coming season…
Owing to its huge popularity, Netflix immediately renewed the show for Season 5 way back in June 2019. There were rumors that Season 5 might be the final season. However, that isn’t the case as Netflix is considering extending the series for the sixth season as well. Although, there has NO official announcement regarding the release date for Season 5. It is expected that the fifth season will premiere by the end of 2020.
Season 4 lived up to everyone’s expectations and presented 10 episodes of devilish fun. However, the show ended on a major cliffhanger. Lucifer and his team foiled Kinley’s end of the world prophecy and banished all invading demons back to hell. Chloe thought that everything was finally over. However, that wasn’t the case.
After an eventful final episode, Lucifer bid farewell to his first love and left Chloe behind. The demons know that Lucifer has zero plans of returning to the underworld and Lucifer knows this as well. Knowing that this will put Chloe at risk again, Lucifer decides to return to the underworld to stop this from happening again.
Though it may seem conclusive, Lucifer will find a way to return to Earth once again. Lucifer finally managed to confess his love for Chloe at the end of season 5. Therefore, there will be a slightly different feel about them as we go into season 5.
