It is official now! ‘Lucifer’ Season 5 Part 2 will not be able to make by Christmas 2020. We all are aware that shooting is complete for Season 5 Part 2 and the cast & crew have begun with the filming of the final Lucifer Season 6. This had thrown everyone to speculations that Lucifer Season 5 Part 2 should drop by the close of 2020 on Netflix.
However, the co-showrunner on Netflix, Joe Henderson while replying to a query on Part 2 put rest to 2020 hopes. Henderson, co-showrunner alongside Ildy Modrovich, confirmed that ‘Lucifer’ Season 5 Part 2 on Netflix is certainly not dropping by this year.
Henderson while replying on Twitter that for Season 5 Part 2 to get ready for Netflix needs “plenty to do”. As of now, he can confirm that only shooting has been wrapped up. He went on further to deny a December timeline categorically.
On the possibility of a release date in January or February 2021, Joe further clarified –
As of now, we are not aware of the status of the production work of ‘Lucifer’ Season 5 Part 2. However, it can be assumed that finalizing VFX, subtitles & dubs of the series and building marketing collaterals will be a few of the tasks that the team will be working on.
The most optimistic timeline we can think of after insights from Henderson is Q1-Q2 2021. If all goes well, then the final part of Lucifer Season 5 release can happen in the first quarter of 2021, say between February and April 2021. Season 6 will take another 6 months after the premiere of Season 5 Part 2, possibly getting shipped in late 2021. However, in the current scenario, early 2022 cannot be ruled out.
Lucifer Season 5 Part 1 was aired on Netflix on August 21. 95% of the shooting of Part 2 was completed before the pandemic broke. Now, the Lucifer fans are waiting for a treat to the final 8 episodes of Season 2.
