Lucifer has FINALLY set a date for Season 5B to be released on Netflix.
Even the most ardent of fans may be forgiven for not being able to recall that 5A consisting of 8 episodes was released on August 21, 2020. Production on the Netflix show paused for COVID whilst episode 5.16 was being filmed. When the Pandemic break was over the cast and crew came back to finished that episode and then move directly into filming season 6 which will the show’s final season.
Nine months is a long time for a midseason break but something tells me there is still more than enough demand to find what is next in store for Lucifer, Chloe and the rest of the team. DB Woodside who plays Amenadiel and made his directorial debut in 5B spoke with TVline about what to expect:
“When God (played by Dennis Haysbert) comes, a lot of chaos is going to follow. We pick up literally two seconds from where we ended, and Amenadiel is absolutely humiliated that God saw him behaving the way that he was with his brothers because as the oldest, he’s really supposed to be the one that sets the example — and he was not doing that!”
A number of guest stars and their roles have been revealed for 5B starting with Rob Benedict (Supernatural) playing a mercenary who lands in the crosshairs of Chloe and the LAPD. Scott Porter (Ginny & Georgia) will play a buttoned-up detective from Dan’s past who joins the LAPD and quickly strikes up a connection with Ella.
Merrin Dungey (Alias) plays Sonya, a no-nonsense cop who forms an unlikely bond with Amenadiel. Brianna Hildebrand (Trinkets) will appear as Rory, a rebellious and angsty angel hoping to follow in Lucifer’s footsteps.
Lucifer returns on Friday, May 28, only on Netflix
