Lucifer is an interesting beast as the urban fantasy television series has been a hit among fans, although it didn’t manage to impress most critics when the first season was aired by Fox.
Encouraged by the popularity among viewers, Fox decided to release two additional seasons that were well-received by the audience, and some critics praised Tom Elis’ (the actor plays Lucifer) charisma and performance. As ratings started to decline, Fox decided to cancel the series after the third season, but Netflix decided to pick it up for a fourth season.
Season Five release date
Fans were pleased by the fact that Netflix gave the series another chance, but it seems that the streaming titan doesn’t want to lengthen the experience too much. At first, Netflix announced that the fifth season would be the final one, with ten episodes being planned. After a while, it was announced that the number of episodes had been increased to 16, and it will be split into two batches of eight episodes.
Despite the hopes of the fans, the TV series is in production hiatus at this point as studios, and other locations are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Possible plot twists
Dennis Haysbert has been cast to play the role of God in season 5 and some fans are already thinking about some events that could take place. As Maze evolved throughout the series from a cold-hearted demon to a caring person willing to protect humans, it is argued that God may grant her a surprising gift, but only time will tell.
