Apart from any new footage, what we believed that something was missing in the announcement trailer. The season was previously being advertised as the final set of episodes of the show, but the promo no longer bills it as the “final season”. This comes after there were rumors of Netflix renewing Lucifer for a Season 6. Despite rumors, reportedly, Tom Ellis would be replaced by Vampire Diaries fame Ian Somerhalder.
Meanwhile, showrunner Ildy Modorovich has revealed that the new episodes will see the appearance of God as well as a musical episode. She also teased that the episodes would be some of the longest yet for the former Fox show.
THE RELEASE DATE IS OFFICIAL! #Lucifer Season 5 Part 1 will be available on Netflix August 21st. Yes, we KNOW that’s not soon enough for you, but that’s the soonest it will be ready. But trust me, these 8 epic, super-sized episodes will be worth the wait… 😈 #LuciferSeason5 pic.twitter.com/RChuLZW7r1
