How was the devil resurrected?
Lucifer is a fantasy comedy-drama series that follows the Devil Lucifer Morningstar portrayed by (Tom Ellis) who abandons his duties in Hell and joins LAPD as a consultant.
The show was canceled after three seasons when it first premiered on the Fox network. Unhappy with the decision of Fox, Fans of the series launched a #bringbackLucifer campaign. Netflix noticed this and decided to revive the series on its platform.
Last season finished with Lucifer going back to Hell to protect his love Chloe Decker (Lauren German). The official synopsis of season 5 has not been released yet. Still, some clues regarding events in the fifth season are available such as a musical episode, a 1940s noir themed episode, the return of Lucifer’s first girlfriend Eve played Inbar Levi, Lesley Ann Brandt who plays Mazikeen fighting new enemies, Dennis Haysbert playing God.

A Release Date?
