- Netflix fiction is already heading towards the last chapters. Before, for the enjoyment of the fans, the fifth installment will be released (May 28).
Lucifer season 6 will have 10 episodes. The latest installment in the Tom Ellis series returns to the usual Netflix format for its final stretch. The fifth – which, at first, the story was going to be settled – consists of two batches of 8 episodes each, but to say goodbye to the characters the ‘showrunners’ Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich do not need more.
The end of the fiction – like its trajectory – has been a bit complicated. Netflix decided that it would end after season 5, so the team prepared an outcome to match with a batch of episodes divided into two halves. The first half premiered on August 21, 2020, and the second, due to COVID19 restrictions, has been without a release date until just a few weeks ago, when it was confirmed that it will be available on the streaming platform. as of May 28.
The writers devised this action-packed installment and spectacular moments to say goodbye to their fans in the way they deserve, but the company’s decision to extend the story with a new season has thrown their plans a bit upset. Even so, everything that is going to be seen in the episodes of the fifth installment in what was already prepared, although they will leave more space to explore the history of its protagonists.
“One of the great things we said when we agreed to do season 6 is that we didn’t want to change season 5 because we love it,” says Joe Henderson in an interview with Collider.
When the second half of the fifth installment is released, I think people are going to see how well the whole season fits together. It is a beautiful puzzle. We love. We didn’t want to change the ending.
What we know about the second half of Lucifer season 5 is that it will begin where the previous one ended, with the arrival of God. Actor DB Woodside (Amenadiel) recently explained to TVLine that this is going to cause a lot of chaos. “Amenadiel feels totally humiliated that God sees him behave the way he was doing with his brothers because, as he is the oldest, he is supposed to set an example, but he was not doing it,” he clarifies.
The second half of Lucifer season 5 premieres on Netflix on May 28, 2021.
