The fifth season of the original Fox series finally landed on Netflix last week following a long wait through the coronavirus pandemic. Although the second half of Lucifer’s new instalment is still facing delays, viewers are expecting big things when the devil finally reunites with his estranged father, God.


Lucifer’s fifth season is still postponing production on its anticipated finale following the outbreak of coronavirus across the globe.

Thankfully, eight new episodes of the devilish drama hit screens last week as the first half of season five was finally dropped on Netflix.

The new slate has rocketed to the top of the streaming platform’s most popular show, and fans clearly can’t get enough of the new season.

After dealing with his twin brother’s nefarious schemes, Lucifer and Michael (both played by Tom Ellis) duked it out with Amenadiel (DB Woodside) and Mazikeen (Lesley-Ann Brandt) in the midseason finale.

Delivering one of the show’s most jaw-dropping action sequences yet, the jailhouse brawl was swiftly interrupted with the arrival of the three angels’ all-powerful father, God (Dennis Haysbert).

Former 24 star Dennis Haysbert was announced as part of the cast earlier this year, but it was unsure to what capacity he would be starring in the new season.

Unfortunately, viewers only saw a tiny snippet of the omnipotent new cast member, but God will surely be back in a big way for season five, part two.

In the meantime, fans have been speculating how God intends to fix his children’s petty squabbles amongst the mortals.

As ‘Lucifans’ will remember, Netflix’s first season after being cancelled by Fox, and Lucifer’s fourth overall, concluded when the former king of hell returned to his throne in the underworld.

Now Lucifer is back on Earth, after briefly having his brother Amenadiel fill in to pay his first love, Chloe Decker (Lauren German) a visit.

However, now the two angels are back on Earth for the foreseeable future, hell is in desperate need of a celestial ruler to keep the demonic forces at bay.

If God doesn’t step in to restore the balance, the mortal plane could soon be overrun with unruly demons and hellish nightmares.

Although all hope seems lost as the series hurtles towards its sixth and final season, there may be an easy opportunity for God to put things right.

Michael has caused nothing but pain for Lucifer and his friends throughout season five, and being sent to watch over hell could be a reasonable punishment for wreaking havoc on Dan (Kevin Alejandro) and Chloe.

Not only did he almost trick Chloe into believing he was her true love, Lucifer, he manipulated Dan to turn the gang against each other.

In fact, his capacity for torture and mind games would make him the ideal candidate to take over Lucifer’s reign in hell now he’s keen to start a new life with Chloe.

Lucifer kept fans on the edge of their seats in the latest episode as it remains uncertain if the devil is able to tell Chloe he loves her.

The fallen angel might have to return to his kingly duties in the underworld at some point but, with a season and a half still to come, viewers aren’t expecting him to remain on his throne for much longer.

No release date has been set for season five, part two, so fans will have to wait patiently to see if the dastardly Michael gets his well-deserved comeuppance when Lucifer returns.

Lucifer Season 5 Part 1 is available to stream on Netflix.
