When Will Lucifer Season 5 Release?
Season 5 was expected to make its way in Spring or Summer of 2020. However, due to the widespread corona pandemic, Netflix stopped the production of all its show. Lucifer season 5 will have 2 parts of 8 episodes each.
As per the reports we have, all 16 episodes have been written and the shooting till episode 15 had been finished. The production was preparing for 16th episode when the lockdown was announced. Due to lockdown, the post-production work has also stopped.
We can expect the first part (8 episodes) to release in late 2020. However, it all depends on the pandemic situation which is getting worse day by day.
Will there be Lucifer season 6?
Till the start of 2020, it was believed that season 5 will be the final season. However, rumours are rife that there might be yet another season of Lucifer.
