Lucifer Season 5 Airing Date
Tom Ellis' next season of Lucifer was earlier slated for a Spring/Summer release of 2020. However, due to the sudden outbreak of coronavirus globally, the show's production has been halted. And chances of it getting back on track any time soon are very bleak. It is most likely that the show will not hit the OTT platform in 2021 and since it's going to be divided into two parts, there are chances that the second part may come out in 2022. However, Lesley-Ann Brandt hopes that the show's first part (which is ready) may release in May or June this year.
Is Lucifer Returning for Season 6?
Well, the answer could be yes. In February 2020, there were whispers about Netflix discussing the new season of Lucifer with Warner Bros and even about Tom Ellis renewing his contract. Later, show actor, Lesley-Ann Brandt in one of her Instagram live revealed how the crew is getting ready for the next season. "We have Lucifer season five, we’re getting ready to do season six," she said while adding "I do feel like it would be fun to explore, especially where we end off on season five." So chances are the show will return for one last time for season six.
