‘Lucifer’ Season 5 Trailer Is A “Double” Feature For Fans

Netflix has been keeping the Devil busy lately: Now it’s a tantalizing trailer for Season 5 of Lucifer and more details on the highly anticipated episodes.

Over the last couple of months, fans have learned that the popular series will indeed return for a sixth season (after being led to believe the upcoming Season 5 would be the last), that leading man Tom Ellis had ironed out his contract conflicts and is on board through Season 6 and that series stalwart D.B. Woodside also would be back as Lucifer’s older brother for the last season.

And now, as if all that wasn’t enough, Netflix this week unveiled a trailer for the fifth season–which kicks off Aug. 21–that reveals that Lucifer’s twin brother Michael (also played by Ellis) is on Earth to make life miserable for all concerned, as reported by comicbook.com.

The trailer (which you can check out below) shows the evil Michael–who harbors a grudge against Lucifer–back on our world with plans to usurp Lucifer’s life here as payback.

As fans of the show will remember, the fourth season of Lucifer wrapped up with Lucifer Morningstar returning to Hell, leaving behind LAPD Det. Chloe Decker (Lauren German), who had just professed her love for the erstwhile ruler of the fiery realm.

Now, according to reports, Season 5 will open with Lucifer still trapped in Hell, where he will be visited by his older brother Amenadiel, who brings with him “a matter of urgent importance.”

In addition, the fifth season will be presented in a slightly different format: It will be shown in two parts, each with eight episodes.

Joe Henderson–one of the Lucifer showrunners, along with Ildy Modrovich–recently explained the rationale behind the extra episodes and the split season. “When we went from 10 to 16 (episodes), we were like, ‘How do we do this?’ But, literally within three days, we were like, ‘How could we ever have told the story without those stories?’ It ended up giving us such an opportunity to explain Lucifer in an early version of himself.”

Lucifer also stars Rachel Harris as Dr. Linda Martin, Kevin Alejandro as Det. Dan Espinoza, Lesley-Ann Brandt as Mazikeen Smith and Aimee Garcia as Ella Lopez. The series is produced by Warner Bros. Television and was developed by Tom Kapinos.

The show–based on the character from DC Comics’ Sandman comic book series created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg–debuted on Fox in 2016, ran for three seasons before being cancelled and then was picked up by Netflix.
