The titles for all the 16 episodes in Lucifer Season 5 have been revealed where the season finale is titled “A Chance At A Happy Ending.” Most of the people are currently sitting at home in quarantine and it has increased the demand for streaming shows and movies. Netflix could release Lucifer Season 5 earlier than the normal schedule and gain a lot of new subscribers.
Lucifer Season 5 First 8 Episodes can Stream Earlier on Netflix
Lucifer Season 5 was planned to ahead to release in two parts containing 8 episodes each. It was done as Netflix ordered more episodes and hence the makers split the fifth season into two halves. Further, Netflix and Warner Bros. have renewed Lucifer Season 6 as Tom Ellis has signed a new deal and the story will continue for another year.
The filming for Lucifer Season 5 has been going for the last couple of months and they have already shot more than 12 episodes as per the estimate. It is a perfect time in the dry spell of streaming services where Netflix could capture the market by a surprise early release of Lucifer Season 5. The first 8 episodes of Lucifer Season 5 will end of a cliffhanger, making the wait for the next 8 episodes much hyped up.
