It feels like we've been waiting an eternity for the second half of Lucifer Season 5, which ended on a major midseason finale cliffhanger that left us wanting more. If you've been sending up a few quick prayers that Lucifer returns soon for Part 2, we have good news! The second-to-last season is officially set to return in May.

The midseason finale saw Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) duke it out with their brother Michael, only for God (Dennis Haysbert) to finally show up after five seasons of ghosting his kids in order to break up the fight.

In season 5B, which was delayed due to the pandemic, Lucifer, Amenadiel, and Michael will get to spend some quality time with dear old dad; however, that might not be a good thing when it comes to Lucifer's growth, EW cites.

"It takes him back to a very primal place, and his feelings are very raw," Ellis told EW in August. "I'm just so happy and so proud of what we've done. The first two episodes of the second half of season 5 are my two favorite episodes of the season, without a doubt."

When is Lucifer season 5, part 2 released on Netflix?

The first half of season five landed on Netflix back on August 21, 2020. However, at the time fans were warned not to expect the final eight episodes any time soon.

This is because they were delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic shutting down production when filming episode 16. Thankfully at the end of 2020, it was announced filming had been able to conclude on season five as post-production began.

Since then, fans have been patiently waiting for any news about the new episodes’ release date. Now it has finally been confirmed the new episodes will be out on Friday, May 28.

Thanks to an update on the Lucifer Netflix page, we now know that season 5b on Lucifer will release on Netflix worldwide.

Since we posted the date, Netflix has seemingly removed the release date for Lucifer season 5 part 2 with the message on the page only stating “More episodes coming soon”. However, later that day, all of the Netflix accounts piled in on announcing the official date of May 28th, 2021.

Who is in the cast of Lucifer season 5, part 2?

All of the major stars of Lucifer will be back for the second half of season five. This means viewers will get to see Tom Ellis, Lauren German, DB Woodside, Aimee Garcia, Kevin Alejandro, Lesley-Ann Brandt and Rachael Harris return.

However, there will also be some new additions to the cast as well with Dennis Haysbert cast to play God.

As well as this, Netflix has confirmed Supernatural star Rob Benedict and Friday Night Lights actor Scott Porter will also both be appearing.

Other new additions include Allison McAtee, Catherine Dent and Teri Reeves.

Lucifer Season 5 Part 2 episode names

Long before Lucifer season 5 part 1 released onto Netflix, we were slowly teased all of the episode titles and who was set to write and direct. We’ve included the most up-to-date list of the episode titles for episodes nine through 16 below.

Episode 509 – “Family Dinner” – Written by Joe Henderson and directed by Nathan Hope

Episode 510 – “Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam” – Written by Ildy Modrovich and directed by Sherwin Shilati.

Episode 511 -“Resting Devil Face” – Written by Mira Z. Barnum, Joshua Duckworth, and Richardo Lopez Jr and directed by Bola Ogun

Episode 514 – “Nothing Lasts Forever” – Written by Chris Rafferty & directed by Lisa Demaine

Episode 516 – “A Chance At a Happy Ending” – Written by Joe Henderson & Ildy Modrovich & directed by Karen Gaviola

It’s worth noting that the episode titles were announced up until March 12th, 2020 which is before the renewal of Lucifer season 6 so we’re not yet sure whether any episode titles will change but we have no doubt that it will affect the meat of the final episode as we’ll move onto in a just a second, according to What's on Netflix.

Lucifer is a fantasy comedy-drama revolving around Lucifer Morningstar (aka The Devil), who moves to Los Angeles after tiring of his demanding job as the Lord of Hell, reported Radio Times.

He quickly becomes entangled with an LAPD detective named Chloe Decker and the two of them develop a complicated bond that always appears to be right on the cusp of romance.

Based on a character created by Neil Gaiman for The Sandman comic-book series, Lucifer has superhuman strength and invulnerability, as well as the power to make people tell him their secret desires.

Over the course of the series, Lucifer and his allies take on a large number of murder cases as well as some supernatural threats – but they will be facing perhaps their strangest challenge yet in season five.

Season four of Lucifer is currently streaming exclusively on Netflix, the streaming provider that willed it into existence. However, due to an existing licensing deal, earlier episodes are yet to be added.

You’ll have to head over to Amazon Prime Video if you want to stream the first three seasons of Lucifer in the UK, but these older installments are expected to make the leap to Netflix eventually – there’s just no word on exactly when.
