Lucifer’s Fifth Season Finally Gets Netflix Release Date

By Gabriela Vatu / June 22, 2020

The cat is officially out of the bag, and we finally know when Lucifer's fifth season will premiere on Netflix. Go ahead and ask for a day off work on August 21st!

Lucifer's fifth season has been long-awaited by fans, especially since Season 4 left us with a cliffhanger, as the main characters are split after finally expressing their feelings for each other.

Before you rejoice thinking that we're getting the full 16 episodes, you need to know that we're only getting the first part of the season. It's unclear exactly how many episodes that's going to be, but we're hoping for half.

Of course, there's also the fact that production for the show had to be halted due to the pandemic, so filming has been stopped until further notice. Recently, the show's boss said there's hope they'll resume "very soon" so we're keeping our fingers crossed we won't have to wait too many months until the second half is done too.

The fifth season that is going to premiere on August 21st was supposed to be the final one for the show, counting 16 episodes, but it seems that Netflix has decided to order a sixth season. So, hopefully, next year, we'll get to see even more of Tom Ellis, Lauren German, Kevin Alejandro, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Rachael Harris, and Aimee Garcia.

Lucifer's first three seasons aired on Fox starting on January 25th and up through May 28th, 2018. Upon the show's cancellation from Fox, fans went into a frenzy and made #SaveLucifer trend on social networks. That got the attention of Netflix, who decided to give the show a second chance and took it under its wing. Season 4 premiered in May 2019 with 10 episodes and was well-received. Now you can watch all 4 seasons of Lucifer on Netflix.
