Lucifer Season 5 Part 2: Updates- It’s been a while on earth waiting for the second half of the show ever since the initial eight episodes premiered on Netflix in August. Considering how crazy that major midseason finale cliffhanger was, we totally wouldn’t accuse you of sending up a quick prayer that Lucifer returns for Part 2 of the season soon.
Netflix first announced its unique release schedule for Lucifer Season 5 back in 2019, confirming that the 16-episode season would be cut in half, with eight episodes debuting in August of 2020 and the remainder premiering at a later, unannounced date.

In the midseason finale, we saw Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) duke it out with their brother Michael, only for God (Dennis Haysbert) to ultimately show up after five seasons of ghosting his kids in order to break up the fight. And heaven helps us, that’s literally where they left us!
Right now, we know a bunch of details about the back half of Season 5, even if we don’t know how the whole God problem will pan out. Part 1 of Lucifer Season 5 is already streaming on Netflix.
The release date of Part 2 is not confirmed yet. Netflix has not announced when the second half of the season will stream, but some reports say that the series starts production again to finish filming Season 5 and start filming Season 6 in the back half of September. We’re likely glancing at an early to mid-2021 release date for Part 2.
It’s not the last season like we thought. Season 5 was presumed to be the end of the series, but for the second time, Lucifer got itself un-canceled. The sixth and actual last & final season will start filming directly after production wraps on the final episodes of Season 5.
