Lucifer unleashes its fifth season in August on Netflix, which recently renewed the show for a sixth and final season.
“The devil made us do it.#Lucifer will return for a sixth and final season.Like, FINAL final.”
This caption was accompanied by an animated picture of the numbers “666” transforming into words “season 6”.
On June 23, Netflix surprised fans with the revelation that Lucifer actually will return for a sixth season. The news came via an official Twitter post which confirmed that the sixth will be the final season.
According to TVLINE Rob Benedict, better known as Supernatural’s portrayer of Chuck Shurley, a.k.a God is set to appear on Lucifer Season 5.
However, don’t expect any further DC/CW biblical multiverse shenanigans here, since Benedict is set to play a character named Vincent Le Mec, described as:
“A hardened French Mercenary whose violent work brings him to Los Angeles, and into the crosshairs of Lucifer, Chloe and the LAPD.”
The character will appear in Episode 15, which falls in the 15B second half portion, for which a release date has yet to be revealed.
Despite bearing no likely connections, the appearance of Benedict, a prominent Supernatural cast member, is intriguing in a “six degrees” manner. That’s because Lucifer was recently canonically codified into The CW’s Arrowverse after Tom Ellis’s guest spot as Lucifer, in an appropriately-hellish interaction with Matt Ryan’s John Constantine, on the Flash episode of last December’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover storyline.
The TV heartthrob , known for being the main love interest in Miranda, plays the lead role.
He is married to a screenwriter, Meaghan Oppenheimer.
Lucifer is a fantasy comedy-drama revolving around Lucifer Morningstar(Ellis), a fallen angel who is fed up with his demanding role as the King of Hell, so decides to become a consultant with the LAPD instead, naturally.
