Lucifer Season 5A: Release date, trailer, synopsis, and more

Netflix has officially confirmed the Lucifer Season 5A release date. Here’s everything we know about the release so far, including synopsis and episodes.

On June 21, fans learned unofficially that Lucifer Season 5A would be released in August. That was officially confirmed by Netflix a day later. Now it’s time to delve into everything we know about the season.

Only half of Lucifer Season 5 will be released. When Netflix confirmed the season would have 16 episodes, it was something many suspected. After all, 16 episodes is long for the streaming service to release at once. Eight allows for easy binge-watching, which seems to be the way Netflix wants viewers to watch shows. So, we’ll get eight episodes on Aug. 21, 2020 and then another eight at a later date that’s still to be determined.

Lucifer Season 5A synopsis and trailer

There isn’t much known about the fifth season up to this point. Netflix hasn’t released much information, except a 66.6-second long tease of some of the devil’s best moments. One of those is a Deckerstar moment that comes from, presumably, this upcoming batch of episodes. It’s a clip we’ve never seen before, which hints that Deckerstar will get a reunion.

That’s something we’d hoped for. Just as the two had chosen to be with each other, Lucifer had to take his place on Hell’s throne. It was all to protect his nephew, who demons wanted to raise as their new king. This sacrifice certainly makes our devilish lead a hero more than a villain.

We also left Maze brokenhearted. Eve decided that while she loved Maze, she needed time to figure out who she is. After all, she was made to be someone’s wife, and she doesn’t know who she is herself. However, there’s hope that she’ll come back to Maze.

According to TVLine, there is a synopsis. The official teaser reads:

In the stunning fifth season, the stakes are higher than ever. Secrets will be revealed, beloved characters will die, and we’ll finally get an answer to the question, ‘Will they or won’t they?’

Casting and more

The cast is expected to remain the same as previous seasons. We haven’t had official word yet, but it’s presumed that we’re see our devil, The Detective, Linda, Amenadiel, Ella, Detective Douche, and Maze back. Eve is also likely to return at some point considering the way things ended in Season 4.

Just recently, Tom Ellis negotiated a new contract. This makes it possible for Season 6 to happen if Warner Bros. TV Studios and Netflix come to a deal. Season 5 was originally announced as the final season but Netflix had regrets and looked to extend the season after the outcry from fans.
