Netflix may have been going through a devil of a time getting Season 5 of Lucifer completed, but things are looking up–for the cast and crew, as well as for the legions of fans.
The first eight-episode half of the show’s fifth (and next-to-last) season debuted last month, but the COVID-19 crisis cut short production on the second half back in March. But, as reported by comicbook.com, everything is back on track, and shooting on the season finale will start Sept. 24. And the cameras will keep rolling after that, with work on the sixth season commencing right after Season 5 is a wrap.
As fans know, the current season has been highlighted by Lucifer’s twin brother Michael (both played by Tom Ellis) coming to Earth to cause his particular brand of mischief, while Lucifer returns to Hell, where he meets up with his older brother Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside), who brings him “a matter of great urgency.”
Lucifer–which was renewed for a sixth (and reportedly final) season on Netflix earlier this year–is led by showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich. The series–based on the DC Comics’ character in the Sandman comic books and developed by Tom Kapinos–boasts an ensemble cast (led by Ellis) of Lauren German (Det. Chloe Decker), Rachel Harris (Dr. Linda Martin), Kevin Alejandro (Det. Dan Espinoza), Lesley-Ann Brandt (Mazikeen Smith) and Aimee Garcia (Ella Lopez).
The first four-and-a-half seasons of Lucifer are now available on Netflix. Few details about Season 6 are known at this time (including a debut date), so keep reading Horror News Network for all updates on the future of the Lord of Hell and his friends and foes.
