Lucifer fans are excited the hit devilish series will be returning to Netflix with its first part this week. Ahead of its release, here’s everything fans need to know about when exactly it will be out and how many episodes there will be.

How many episodes are in Lucifer season 5?

The wait is almost over for new episodes of Netflix’s Lucifer as the new season drops this week.

Fans will be able to see the all-new episodes of the show on Friday, August 21.

They will all be made available to watch at once at 8am BST for UK viewers.

This is because of the time difference between the UK and California, which is where Netflix headquarters are based.

Countries around the world will, therefore, be able to watch new episodes based on their own time differences.

In total, there will be eight new episodes released for fans to binge in total.

This is only half of season five as the outing has actually been split into two parts.

However, the exact release date for the second part of the show has not yet been announced.

This is because season five was not able to complete filming after the outbreak of coronavirus COVID-19 shut down production.

In the meantime, more has been released about the season five episodes for fans to get excited about.

All eight episode titles have already been revealed and they offer some hints at what will happen. These are:

  • Episode 501: Really Sad Devil Guy
  • Episode 502: Lucifer! Lucifer! Lucifer!
  • Episode 503: !Diablo!
  • Episode 504: It Never Ends Well for the Chicken
  • Episode 505: Detective Amenadiel
  • Episode 506: BluBallz
  • Episode 507: Our Mojo
  • Episode 508: Spoiler Alert

More than just the episode titles have been released as the creators and cast have also been teasing bumper episodes.

This will mean the majority of the episodes will be longer in length than fans are used to them being.

Back in May, showrunner Ildy Modrovich confirmed this to fans of Twitter.

She said: “I CAN tell you that ALL the episodes are SUPERSIZED.

“Between 50 and 60 mins each. (IE: we’re long-winded mo fos this season.”

Lucifer star Tom Ellis also revealed more about this in a recent interview with Da Man magazine.

He said: “Well, for a long time we thought we were making the final season of Lucifer, so we decided to adopt the mentality of ‘go big or go home.’

“Subsequently, most of the episodes are closer to an hour than usual and they are packed with fantastic stories and performances.”

In terms of what will happen in the new series, Netflix has also now released an official synopsis for season five.

This reads: “Lucifer, bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, resigns his throne and abandons his kingdom for the gorgeous, shimmering insanity of Los Angeles, where he gets his kicks helping the LAPD… and the savvy detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German) in particular.

“In Part A of season 5, Lucifer’s twin brother Michael secretly takes the devil’s place on earth while he’s back in Hell.

“Eventually, Lucifer must return and face the mess his brother made with his life.

“He’ll also finally confront his feelings for Chloe, and answer a question fans have been asking since the very beginning: ‘Will they or won’t they’?”

Lucifer season five, part one is released on Netflix on Friday, August 21.
