'Lucifer' Season Five Part One Is Now Streaming on Netflix | 22 Words

Netflix is the hub for many of our favorite shows. From Orange Is The New Black to The Crown, the streaming giant constantly wows us with its binge-worthy slew of content.

And one of its fan-favorite offerings is Lucifer. And now the devilish show has finally made a comeback for its fifth season...

Netflix has blessed us today.

Lucifer is back, people!

In the midst of many TV cancelations ...

It's great to finally get some brand new content.

It's been gone for more than a year.

But everyone's favorite devil-based show is back, baby!

The past seasons have been extremely well-reviewed.

So we can only assume this one will be equally fabulous.

And fans are very excited.

We can see why!

Lucifer first aired in 2016.

Based on the DC comic of the same title, the series follows Lucifer Morningstar, the original fallen angel, who has become dissatisfied with his life in hell and trades it in for the busy city of Los Angeles to learn more about humanity.

Here, he runs his own nightclub...

And after subsequently getting involved in a murder case with Detective Chloe Decker, he becomes a consultant to the Los Angeles Police Department.

After 3 seasons, FOX decided to cancel the show.

Despite receiving some critical acclaim, the channel ultimately pulled the plug back in 2018.

But Netflix quickly came to the rescue...

The streaming giant picked up the popular show, allowing the Prince of Darkness to grace screens for longer.

The series has been a smash hit amongst fans.

So of course, many rallied for a fifth offering of the show.

Back in June, those prayers were answered...

It was announced that Netflix has renewed the show for a fifth season. And of course, fans were delighted that there was more devilish content in the canon.

New details surrounding the upcoming season began to surface.

Including the fact that one of the episodes would be shot entirely in black and white. According to Entertainment Tonight, the unique episode will be set in an alternative universe in the 1940s and will feature a “musical twist."

Tom Ellis, who plays the dark lord himself, revealed some clues about what to expect.

“I can’t tease too much! I would say on this episode, we take a trip down memory lane with Lucifer," he explained. “The lovely thing about this episode is you see a lot of our regular characters in a different light." “The thing about Lucifer is that he’s timeless, so he’s been coming back to Earth all this time. There’s an element to Lucifer where he seems to be from the Oscar Wilde period. And to see the other characters fall back into that style is quite interesting."

Season 5 has 16 episodes to get our teeth into.

The series was originally commissioned for a ten-episode run but Netflix added 6 more hours of binging.

Safe to say fans were pleased...

6 more episodes are nearly an entire season's worth of extra content! But post-season 5?

We're finally having to wave goodbye to Mr. Morningstar, for good.

Netflix initially revealed that season 5 will be the final season of the show. When the news broke, co-showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovic, thanked Netflix for reviving the beloved show: “We are so incredibly thankful to Netflix for resurrecting our show last season, and now letting us finish the story of Lucifer on our terms." The cast have also had some emotional reactions...

Modrovich shared a letter with fans going into more detail about the show coming to an end.

"We spoke to our partners at Netflix and Warner Bros, and you should all know TREMENDOUS care and consideration was put into making this decision. "In fact, the whole reason they decided to announce that it was our fifth and final season simultaneously is because they know how devoted and passionate our fans (and we!) are and wanted to give y'all (and us!) as much time as they could to accept and process the news. And for that, we're incredibly grateful."

During a recent Lucifer fan convention Ellis admitted he will struggle when the show comes to an end...

"I can categorically say that I will never have another experience like this. When they call cut on the last day, it’s going to be a lot to take in."

The actor also promised that the end of Lucifer will be “satisfying" to longtime fans of the show.

And now we can be the judge of that!

A long-awaited character will finally be making an appearance...

Fans will get to see God on their screens during the upcoming season.

God has been mentioned a lot, but never actually made an appearance on-screen.

But it looks like that's all about to change.

The presence of God will surely shake things up.

This season looks set to be the best yet! And it seems Twitter agrees...

We know what our plans are this evening!
