The eagerly awaited Lucifer 5B is dropping on Netflix this month. Find out when it's released, who will return in the cast and what to expect.

Lucifer Season 5 Part 2, or Lucifer 5B as it's also known, is almost upon us.

The much-anticipated second half of season 5 of the hit Netflix series, which sees Tom Ellis star as the titular character, is set to make up for lost time due to delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

The Tom Kapinos series that began on Fox was given a whole new lease of life on the streaming platform and garnered a whole new fanbase, who've eagerly followed the exploits of Lucifer Morningstar as he struggles to reconcile his divinity and his devilish nature with his humanity.

But when can we expect the final half of season 5 and will it be the last of the entire series?

Watch the official trailer for Lucifer Season 5 Part 2 and find out when the show starts, who's in the cast and what you can expect from the plot.

Is there a Lucifer Season 6?

There will be a Lucifer season 6, but it will be the absolute FINAL season. Collider adds that the series will have 10 episodes, following the same amount as season four.

The news confirming a sixth season came from show runners last year via Twitter with a video brandishing the numbers "666" and the caption: "The devil made us do it. #Lucifer will return for a sixth and final season. Like, FINAL final."

What is the plot of Lucifer Season 5 Part 2?

Lucifer Season 5 Part 2 will see God himself come down to earth to sort out his wayward children after Michael and Lucifer's actions at the end of part 1. Based on the trailer, God decides to retire, which sees Michael and Lucifer go to war as they battle for the throne.

The tagline "It's time to meet your new maker" suggests that this will be one of the main themes of 5B as well as the relationship between Chloe and Lucifer, who he cannot seem to utter those "three words" to.

Lucifer star D.B. Woodside, who plays Amenadiel in the series, has teased that it's going to be full of some shocking and heartbreaking moments.

"There's going to be something shocking that happens towards the end of 5B that is going to break everyone's heart," Woodside told Entertainment Tonight.

"But I would just tell people that, 'Hey, we have a season 6. So even though your heart is going to be absolutely smashed at the end of season 5B, keep the faith.'"
