No one would have called devil sexy if it weren’t for Tom Ellis’ Lucifer Morningstar. The Fox’s (now Netflix’s) Lucifer changed how the devil was perceived. The latest and fifth season of Lucifer came out on August 21, 2020, and it was filled with a rollercoaster of emotions.
However, due to the pandemic situation, a part of the filming of the complete season 5 wasn’t possible. Hence, season five was split into two parts, comprising eight episodes each.
The remaining part of the filming is finally completed, and the season is in the post-production stage so that we can expect Lucifer season 5B on our televisions sooner than later.
The cast and crew of Lucifer have long since teased various aspects of the upcoming season, and the fans have gone into a frenzy, trying to understand all the clues that were dropped.
This article shall discuss everything we know about the upcoming season 5B of Lucifer, like the casting details, release date, and the possible plot. But before that,
1. What to Expect in Lucifer Season 5 Part 2?
Before we talk about the upcoming episodes, let us quickly recount the events of the season 5A finale episode.
At the end of the episode, we see an epic double face-off between Lucifer and Maze, and Amenadiel and Michael (Lucifer’s twin). As the battle progresses, we see beams of light-converging into the building, and *poof* God appears. The finale episode ended with God calmly saying,
“children, you know I hate it when you fight.”God
The upcoming season is very likely to show family drama with God, Lucifer, and his siblings. With season 5, part 1 ending with God making an appearance when his kids were busy brawling.
The first half of season 5 saw intense and dark themes, likely to continue in future episodes. It was previously teased that season 5B of Lucifer will be the most emotional season.
In season 5B, God is expected to stay on Earth for a while. On November 23, 2020, the official Twitter account of Lucifer tweeted a clue about it.
Of course, fans tried to crack the code *ahem* asterisks *ahem* and concluded that the message read: Get ready for God’s extended stay on Earth. If the series stays true to its comic book origin, we would eventually see the creation of the DC Universe.
The other thing to look forward to from the upcoming episodes from season 5B would be the demon face of Maze (played by Lesley-Ann Brandt). Fans will get to see Maze’s demon face for the first time.
One of the most anticipated things about the upcoming season could be the musical episode: Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam. It has continuously been teased about by the cast and crew of the series.
I. What to Expect From the Musical Episode?

5. Will Lucifer get a season 6?
On June 23, 2020, Netflix renewed Lucifer for season six. It was announced via a tweet from their official Twitter account.
