After months of waiting and pleading with the cast and crew for news on Twitter, Lucifer finally has a release date for its second season on Netflix.
Lucifer season five, originally on Fox, will air in two parts for the streaming service with the first arriving this August, Friday 21st.
Before the air date was confirmed, fans have been treated to exciting casting news and sneak peeks behind the scenes in addition to the renewal of a sixth and final season.
Lucifer Morningstar (played by Tom Ellis) is set to be rescued from his imprisonment in the underworld and reunited with his father, God (Dennis Haysbert) in the thrilling new season.

However, as well as the usual drama and romance the series will also wind the clock back to the 1940s for a special black and white episode set in an alternate, film noir reality.
The fourth of eight new episodes coming to Netflix, It Never Ends Well for the Chicken will explore Lucifer’s first visit to Los Angeles.
As well as paying tribute to old Hollywood thrillers, the special episode also takes inspiration from The Princess Bride as Tom Ellis recounts his first case in storybook form.
In an exclusive first look for Entertainment Weekly, showrunner Ildy Modrovich revealed: “This was a big one because it ended up giving us such an opportunity to explore Lucifer in an early version of himself.
“Also, the big fun of the Princess Bride device is, as he’s telling the story, he’s basically putting the characters we know and love into it.”
Not only will the episode explore more of Lucifer’s history, his familiar friends and family are set to take on new roles in his story, including Chloe Decker (Lauren German) standing in for a male detective.
Co-showrunner Joe Henderson explained: “It’s just amazing to watch because it’s such a tricky line to walk so that you don’t go parody, but also so you understand the conceit, and Lauren just nails it.
“It’s so cool and so deceptively hard, and I think people are going to love it.”

The showrunners also teased a shocking reveal about the demonic bounty hunter Mazikeen (Lesley-Ann Brandt), with ‘new details’ about her backstory set to be revealed in the special.
In season four, Lesley-Ann was given plenty of chances to let Maze shine, including her sensational serenade of ‘Wonderwall’ to love interest Eve (Inbar Lavi).
Lucifer’s right-hand demon will get even more chance to flex her vocal muscles, as she is confirmed to have two musical numbers in episode four.
Head writer for the show Ildy Modrovich teased: “Lesley-Ann is going to break your heart for sure.”

It isn’t clear if Mazikeen will remain herself or step in for another character in the story as the demon, like Lucifer, is an immortal being and would have been alive in the 1940s.
Details for the new season are being kept tightly under wraps, though fans do know there will be even more singing-and-dancing sequences than usual.
Plus, there are new special guest stars to look forward to, including Dennis Haysbert as God and Rob Benedict, who played Supernatural’s version of the Almighty, also making an appearance.
Lucifer Season 5 Part 1 will be released on Netflix on August 21st.
