It’s been a devilishly long wait for fans of Netflix’s Lucifer, but finally hope comes in the form of a season 5 announcement date.

OK, a Season 5 A announcement date, that is.

The show is set to return with an initial run of episodes from Friday August 21, 2020. 

As you may already know, Netflix picked up the series following its axing over at FOX, for seasons 4 and 5.

However, following Lucifer’s popularity, the streamer scrambled to inflate the supposedly fifth and final season from 10 to 16 episodes, to be aired over two mini seasons, of sorts. 

Although there is no news as to when fans can expect Season 5 B to drop, in a case of the devil gets his due, leading man Tom Ellis has formally agreed to terms for a sixth season following several months of a negotiations with the streaming giant. Today news of a green light for Season 6 was officially announced by Netflix.

The series follows Lucifer (Ellis), who, bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, resigns his throne and abandons his kingdom for the gorgeous, shimmering insanity of Los Angeles, where he gets his kicks helping the LAPD punish criminals.

Also starring are Lauren German as Detective Chloe Decker, Kevin Alejandro as Detective Daniel “Dan” Espinoza, D. B. Woodside as Amenadiel, Lesley-Ann Brandt as Mazikeen, Rachael Harris as Dr. Linda Martin, and Aimee Garcia as Ella Lopez.

Inbar Lavi , who played Eve, the world’s first human, mother of Tom Welling’s Cain, and lover of Lucifer, is also set to recur in Season 5.

Netflix teases “In the stunning fifth season, the stakes are higher than ever. Secrets will be revealed, beloved characters will die, and we’ll finally get an answer to the question, ‘Will they or won’t they?’”
