Lucifer will return to Netflix for season 5 in 2020 and, unfortunately, it will also be Lucifer's last season, but it will be split in two. This is what we know about Lucifer season 5 on Netflix, how the cast has reacted to its final renewal, why it will be the final season and what can we expect from the next season.
Note: This publication was last updated on January 22, 2020.
As you have heard, Lucifer is the latest Netflix revival program. He managed to resume the FOX program that canceled the series after three seasons last year. The revival came after a massive fan campaign to save the show.
Netflix in the United States had not really transmitted to Lucifer at all and it is believed that the program's ratings in some of Netflix's international regions are what convinced Netflix to pick up the mantle and continue Lucifer's story.
The first seasons of Lucifer were added to Netflix at the beginning of the year and, although not all previous seasons are not available on Netflix everywhere, season 4 premiered exclusively on Netflix worldwide on May 8, 2019.
The reaction to the fourth season since arrival has been immense. He broke TVTime's huge report to number 1 beating HBO's Game of Thrones and breaking his historical record.
There is a lot to cover for season 5 of Lucifer, so let's start.
Has Lucifer been renewed for season 5?
Official renewal status: Renewed (last update: 05/11/2019)
On May 7, 2019, the series received its order for season 5. However, it is a bittersweet announcement as the program received a final order for the season.

In September 2019, we also received the first new cast announcement for season 5. Erik Aude was chosen as Rod and is currently only scheduled to appear in season 1.
As of December 2019, they had completed the reading of the table for episode 9. We believe it will be the final episode of part 1 for Lucifer given the fact that the name of the episode includes a spoiler and the fact that the writers and the cast have said the emotional The episode is.
I just finished the table read for episode 509 of #Lucifer. I am very lucky to work with these amazing actors. I cried several times while reading and … well, now I'm thinking about that. This episode is very personal to me, and just … wow. Grateful.

What to expect from Lucifer season 5
Caution: spoilers ahead
Before entering spoiler territory for season 4, Netflix produced a recap of season 1-3 for Lucifer that was released just before season 4.
First, let's recap the final episode, as there is much to deepen.
The final episode (episode 10 – "Who is the new king of hell?") Watch Lucifer return home to help contain the hell that is now spilling in Los Angeles. Chloe and Lucifer also reveal their mutual love (no wonder there) with Lucifer saying "his first love was never Eva."
Throughout the season, we have seen Chloe fight to accept the fact that Lucifer has a demonic side, so Eva's presentation made sense.
Season 4 sets forth future seasons with demons in hell now knowing that Lucifer never intends to return home.
The episode ends with Lucifer saying his last goodbye to Chloe when he returns home, although hopefully only temporarily.
Will Eva return in future seasons?
Eve also left at the end of season 4, but we also don't believe her story has been completed yet. He clearly made peace and saw the error in his forms throughout the season. Now she went to find herself, but she could buy it again later.
Will Lucifer return from hell?
Unlike the first season, Lucifer will not be able to reach an agreement to return to Earth. You will have to find a replacement rule for the underworld to prevent it from spilling into the real world. Lucifer would choose to ask one of his other brothers.
Some have speculated that Lillith (Adam's first wife) could return with Eve saying she "tamed the beasts of the night."
How many episodes will there be in season 5 of Lucifer?
Originally, they told us that Lucifer would be the final season of 10 episodes, but as of July 2019, we now know that Netflix has given an expanded order to the show.
The series has been extended to 16 episodes, which means we will have almost 16 hours of new content in 2020.

Lucifer Season 5 will be divided into two halves
After many rumors and speculation, it has been confirmed that Lucifer's final season will be divided into two halves.
It is not uncommon for titles to have their last seasons released in two halves. One of the most notable series to do this was Breaking Bad, which also divided its fifth season, this only increased the anticipation to the climactic end.
How was the reaction for season 4 of Lucifer?
This season was bought from the dead to fans and has clearly also pleased fans. IMDb ratings for each episode have soared this season to between 9.5 and 9.9 in some episodes. Compare that to half of the 8 who watched some of the episodes of the third season.
The majority agreed that the reduction in episodes and the total freedom granted by Netflix has meant a significant increase in quality.
We heard in July 2019 that we could soon see the release of the blooper roll for season 4. However, someone has gathered a compilation of all the "behind the scenes" and bloopers released so far.
When will the first half of Lucifer season 5 be released on Netflix?
With production in full swing, it shouldn't surprise us that we are waiting for a 2020 release date for season 5 of Lucifer.
It is likely that the first half of season 5 will arrive in the summer of 2020, meanwhile, we expect the second half to fall towards the end of 2020.
Why won't Lucifer return for season 6?
With the confirmation that season 5 is the final season, it has led many fans to wonder why they will not return. Simply put, the cast and crew have a story with a beginning, middle and end and the end is near.
Once again, it has led fans to request a sixth season, but the team has asked fans to support the end of the show.
Joe Henderson clarified why season 5 will be the last:
"Honestly, we are saying our ending with season 5. We love all the support, but right now, I would say it is better to spend time preparing for an appropriate end to our character's travels."
In addition to this, on June 27, 2019 there was a additional clarifications about the end of the Ildy Modrovich show.
In a crazy twist, TVLine has reported that there have been ongoing conversations between Netflix and Warner Bros. to keep Lucifer going beyond the fifth season. While Netflix and Warner Bros have not yet commented on the matter, fans have hoped Lucifer will return for more.
