Lucifer was last on our screens way back in August 2020, with the first half of its fifth – and penultimate – season ending on one wild cliffhanger. As Tom Ellis’ Lucifer Morningstar and Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) battled Lucifer’s evil twin brother Michael, the trio’s father dropped by to stop the infighting – God himself (Dennis Haysbert). Now, a new trailer for season 5B has finally arrived and it teases the family reunion to end all family reunions when the DC supernatural series returns to Netflix in May.
Following his cameo in the midseason finale, Haysbert’s God will be sticking around Los Angeles for the back half of this run, leaving his sons to help him adjust to life on Earth in much the way that they’ve had to over the past few years. What’s more, this batch of episodes also contains the highly-anticipated all-singing, all-dancing musical outing which we’ve had teased before.

Remember, season 5 was originally conceived as the show’s last before Netflix ultimately renewed it for one more year. In a strange stroke of fate, the pandemic had prevented filming from being completed on the finale, so changes were able to be implemented to make it more open ended when shooting resumed, after which the cast and crew plowed ahead with the final run, which will consist of 10 episodes in total. There’s no word yet on when that could arrive, but we might find out more once 5B debuts.
Before we have to think about the end of Lucifer and Chloe Decker’s (Lauren German) adventures, though, we have a whole eight further installments of season 5 to go first. Unfortunately, we still have to wait another month until they get here, but you can start counting down to the return of Lucifer on Netflix on Friday, May 28th.
