Expectations from season 5 of Lucifer
Netflix released a recap episode which includes a summary from season 1 to season 3.There are few spoilers of season 4 ahead.
Recap of the final episode
Episode 10 which is the final episode shows the viewers that Lucifer has returned home to help to restrain hell. The hell was Los Angeles. Lucifer restored his love for Chloe and she reciprocated. Lucifer said to her that Eve was not his first love.
Chole found it difficult to accept that Lucifer had a demon in him. Eve’s first presentation was logical because of the reason that he had a demon inside him.
The demons were back in hell given the fact Lucifer was not intending to get back home. Season 4 makes the grounds for future episodes.
Lucifer bids goodbye to Chloe in the final episode. His return home was considered temporary though.
Eve’s character will see revival or not
Eve left at the end of the show’s fourth season. Her story seems unfinished though. She did compensate for her actions and realized her faults over the period. She went on to discover herself. The makers still can bring back to the narrative easily.
Lucifer’s return from hell is in question
Lucifer would not be able to come to an understanding whether he could get back to earth unlike season 1. He would have to discover an alternate option so that he could come into the earth from the underworld. He asked his siblings for this responsibility. There was speculation that the first wife of Adam, Lilith may come back with Eve. Lilith curbs the beasts from the night.
Number of episodes
There was a presumption that the finale season of Lucifer would have 10 episodes. Netflix wanted a more elaborated finale for the show. This news came after July 2019.
It is a very interesting fact that the show has been divided into two parts. There will be eight episodes in part A and part B will comprise eight episodes as well.
Now that Lucifer’s fifth season got 16 episodes, viewers can enjoy sixteen hours of adventurous content now In 2020.
Is Lucifer season 6 on the cards?
It seemed that there would be no further expansion after Lucifer’s fifth season, till January 2020. There are now speculations that Netflix’s show could have a sixth season.
TVLine said that the production house Warner Bros. and the streaming platform Netflix were discussing if Lucifer could go further even after season 5. The news also said that they had roped in Tom Ellis for further episodes.
The biggest tease as of now was given by DB Woodside who announced about a secret project in collaboration with Warner Brothers and Netflix.
The rumors in April 2020 indicated that three shoemakers and Tom Ellis were having a conflict. Their contract was on the verge of breaking. Then air got cleared after the protagonist officially was roped in for one more season of Lucifer.
The confirmation of season 6 came on June 23, 2020, and it will be the final end to the series. There will be more news on season 6 after the production house Warner Bros. will hold an event on the internet with fans. Variety said that the grand event will also include Lucifer.
DB Woodside will return to the show in season 6. The actor himself tweeted In July 2020. His tweet said that he was very happy despite his return in season 6 of Lucifer. He will also give direction to one of the episodes in the sixth season. Their cast is so attractive and they support each other immensely. He added that they would divide the work after season 5 part A will release on Netflix.
Happy to announce that I will be returning to Lucifer for season 6. Additionally, I will be directing an episode for our final season. ❤️This is a beautiful cast. We stand by each other. We fight for one another.
