Fans have been teased by a video which features Tom Ellis and his charming moments on screen, the teaser showed snippets from the past episodes. The news has been announced almost a month after it was reported that Tom Ellis has also decided to star as the title character for the sixth season.
“We know you can’t wait for Lucifer season five, so here’s a devilish 66.6 second to keep you sinful until Season Five pt. 1 drop on August 21st,” as tweeted on the official Netflix Twiter handle.
Many reported that it was seen for a brief moment that once searched for the show on Netflix, it appeared on the preview menu as “Season 5 Part 1 Coming 21 August”. This message had been removed after some time but this had expectedly caused a lot of excitement and anticipation among the fans of this show.
“News: Lucifer S5 Part 1 arrives on 21 August. Hell yes,” Netflix confirmed.
The fifth season promises to be an exciting watch. Additionally, there will be a musical-themed episode. The season’s fourth episode, as teased by Tom Ellis himself, looked like a musical episode but it seems though there will be a total musical episode later in the same season of Lucifer. It has been revealed that the fourth episode will have two songs and have also a very noir feel to the whole setting.
Like mentioned earlier, in one of the later episodes, which is titled as ‘Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam’, there will be a big musical outing with “multiple musical numbers” to be seen in the episode.
“We wanted to have a real grounded story reason why they’re singing and dancing, and not just, ‘Oh, this is going to be the one where everybody sings and dances’,” “It’s been a little game of Tetris, but it’s been super fun. It’s going to be amazing. It’s going to be just such a bucket list thing for me,” Ildy Modrovich the showrunner has said. The fourth season of Lucifer had ended with Lucifer being back on the throne of Hell.
Lucifer also stars Lesley-Ann Brandt, Kevin Alejandro, Scarlett Estevez, DB Woodside, and Rachael Harris.
