The wait is over, because season 5a is out now on Netflix. 

In case you aren’t aware, season 5a will consist of eight episodes, and the other eight will air in season 5b. However, we don’t know the release date for this yet as filming was put on hold due to the coronavirus. Once we know more, we’ll update this article.

Who will be in season 5?

There are quite a few returning cast members for season 5a, as well as some new faces. Here’s everyone that we’ve heard about so far:

  • Tom Ellis as Lucifer Morningstar
  • Lauren German as Detective Chloe Decker
  • Kevin Alejandro as Detective Dan Espinoza
  • DB Woodside as Amenadiel
  • Lesley-Ann Brandt as Mazikeen
  • Scarlett Estevez as Trixie Espinoza

  • Matthew Bohrer as Donovan Glover
  • Brianne Davis as Detective Dancer
  • Erin Cummings as Mandy

Will there be another season of Lucifer?

Despite initial news saying that season 5 would be the last, Lucifer will return for a sixth and ultimately final season (so Netflix say now, anyway).

Tom Ellis and numerous co-stars have all been reported to come back for the series - but the date of this hasn’t yet been confirmed. We can say with confidence that it probably won’t be available until 2021 - but it could be even later if other show delays have a knock-on effect.
