Lucifer, season 5 - Episodes
Contrary to season 4, which had 10 episodes, the fifth will be composed of no less than 16 chapters! A news announced on the official Twitter account of Netflix. In addition, Tom Ellis revealed that season 5 of Lucifer, composed of 16 episodes, will be broadcast in two parts on Netflix. "Season 5 of Lucifer will be divided into two parts," he revealed. Netflix is going to put eight episodes online first, then there's going to be a short break, and then they're going to put the last eight episodes online."
Lucifer, season 5 - Actors
The main actors should of course be back, starting with the hero, Tom Ellis. Chances are that the production will also announce other recruits in the coming months. And good news for the fans because the American website TVLine has revealed that Tricia Helfer, present in seasons 2 and 3 as Charlotte Richards (and also as Lucifer's mother), would be back during the new episodes of this season 5 for an "appearance" recently shot by the production.
The American site also unveiled a first picture of the actress in season 5, and Surprise, Charlotte doesn't look like the same person anymore, found dead at the end of season 3. The young woman exchanged her leather jacket and pencil skirts for a floral dress and a pearl necklace. A look that finally reminds us of American housewives in the 1950s. But could other actors make a comeback? Joe Henderson, the co-showrunner of the series, spoke about the possible comebacks of Inbar Lavi (Eve) and Tom Welling (Cain).
"I can't reveal anything but I would love to have Inbar Lavi on board with us in Season 5 because she's incredible. And Tom Welling is one of the people we've loved working with, he's great. He's a lovely guy. Nevertheless, the difficulty remains to find the right story because if you bring a character back, it has to be worth it. But we still have time," he said.
For all those who have been waiting for God to come to the show, rejoice because His coming has just been confirmed for this new Lucifer salvo. The American site Entertainment Weeklyannounced in exclusivity that the latter would appear throughout season 5 and that he would be played by actor Dennis Haysbert. The actor is known to have played President David Palmer in 24 hours, alongside D.B. Woodside, who played Wayne Palmer, his brother. In Lucifer, on the other hand, they will be father and son.
According to TVLine, Rob Benedict, who plays God (aka Chuck Shurley) in the Supernatural series, will appear in season 5 of Lucifer as Vincent Le Mec, "a hardened French mercenary whose violent work brings him to Los Angeles. He will be in the sights of Lucifer, Chloe and the LAPD". The actor's appearance in the drama, which was filmed just before the health crisis forced a halt to production, will be in the 15th episode of the season.
Lucifer, season 5 - Plot
Lucifer's showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich announced that they have been imagining the opening sequence for Season 5 since the day they started working on Season 4. "We also have another one, a very funny toy that we're going to have a good laugh with, which will be the big guideline for Season 5," they told the American site TV Line. Season 5 will also feature an episode set in the 1940s in a parallel universe, filmed in black and white. An episode that will also impact Maze, as its interpreter, Lesley-Ann Brandt, explains in an interview given to Entertainment Tonight: "The main plot of this episode is really about Mazikeen's story. She faces the ultimate betrayal. I can't go into details, but it's really a challenge for her and she'll carry it through the season, almost to the end."
There will be a duet song by Lesley-Ann Brandt and Tom Ellis. "We're also gonna do a musical episode. And that black-and-white episode will not be the musical episode, despite what some people think. So there will be another one that will be fantastic," revealed Joe Henderson. The musical episode will be the 10th of season 5 and will be entitled "Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam". Co-showrunners Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson have always wanted to do a musical episode, but they were waiting to find the right story. "We wanted to have a good story to explain why they're singing and dancing, not just, 'Oh, it's going to be the one where everybody's singing and dancing,'" Modrovich told EW. It was a little Tetris game but it's super fun. It's going to be incredible."
In season four of Lucifer, the devil was forced to leave Earth and return to hell, unable to counter Father Kinley's prophecy. So that's why the star set a date with his fans in hell. Many questions arise, however, and they should find their answers in season 5. And, in particular, will Chloe join him? Will Lucifer manage to return to Earth? Could Eve then take his place? Regarding Chloe and Lucifer's relationship, Joe Henderson told us: "Now that Chloe knows the truth, there is this tragic distance between the two of them. So a big part of this early season will show how this separation affects them and how they will find each other again. There's gonna be a story before we bring them back together."
If season four promised more nudity and violence, will it be the same for these new episodes? "We always want to see more scenes with Tom Ellis' but." (he laughs) More seriously, it's a conversation we had but, as a lot of people watch the show as a family, we wanted to push the limits but reasonably. If we played a little bit on nudity in season 4, we're not going to go any further in these new episodes. We want people to be able to watch Lucifer together," revealed the co-showrunner.
In addition, the American website Entertainment Weekly revealed that Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) would reluctantly go down to Hell to see his brother because of an urgent matter: "He's definitely going to Hell," said the actor. There's something happening on Earth that Amenadiel can't handle on his own."
