Lucifer Season 5 Debuts Friday
With so few new productions — TV shows and movies can’t be made during lockdowns, obviously — I’m reconsidering the value of the various streaming services I subscribe to. There just isn’t enough there to keep my attention, and I have stacks of DVDs to watch. Unfortunately, each has at least one must-watch that keeps me hooked. The latest, the reason I haven’t canceled Netflix yet, drops this Friday, which is when Lucifer season 5 will be available. Here’s the trailer:
Lucifer’s twin Michael shows up, and there seems to be plenty of action, along with a black-and-white noir episode (cool!). The show is a favorite of mine, so I’m looking forward to seeing the twists that come next. The season will consist of 16 episodes, although they’re only releasing eight at a time. There’s a musical episode coming in the second half, which has no announced release date yet.
Plus, there’s a sixth season planned! The fifth was going to be the last, but fan interest extended the run. That will be the last, though.
Also, possible spoiler: Dennis Haysbert plays God. Nice casting. That character was previously voiced by Neil Gaiman, which was a lovely choice, since Lucifer is based on the comic book characters created by Gaiman, Sam Kieth, and Mike Dringenberg for Vertigo.
