Last week, Lucifer fans finally discovered when they can expect the long-awaited season five of the hit Netflix show. Lucifer Morningstar (played by Tom Ellis) will make an explosive comeback on August 21 and viewers were thrilled when showrunner Ildy Modrovich revealed Supernatural’s Rob Benedict will guest star in the upcoming season. 

The showrunner tweeted: “The incredibly talented (and sweetest!) @RobBenedict in the hooooouse!!! #LuciferNetflix #LuciferSeason5  #Lucifer.”

Ildy posted the tweet alongside a TV Line article which gave an insight into the guest star’s character and an image of Rob on set. 

In the photo, Ildy and Rob seem to be in the middle of a tense conversation with Lucifer’s Tom.

Lucifer fans were particularly excited as Rob has recurred on Supernatural as God.
