‘Lucifans’ were finally given a release date for the second half of Lucifer’s sensational fifth season this week. With just under two months to go before the series returns to Netflix, D.B. Woodside has previewed what’s to come in the first episode of Part Two.
D.B. Woodside has teased his character Amenadiel’s first moments in the second half of Lucifer’s fifth season.
After months of waiting, Netflix finally confirmed the series would continue with eight new episodes dropping on Friday, May 28.
The series will pick up after Lucifer Morningstar and Michael (both played by Tom Ellis) faced off in the catastrophic midseason finale last year.
With help from Amenadiel and Mazikeen (Lesley-Ann Brandt), the group of feuding celestials laid waste to the LAPD precinct with a time-stopped showdown.

Thankfully, their brawl was interrupted by the sudden arrival of the angels’ dear old dad, God (Dennis Haysbert) before they got the chance to do some serious damage.
Following one of the most jaw-dropping cliffhangers of the series so far, D.B. Woodside assured fans the next episode will pick up right where Lucifer left off.
Speaking to TV Insider, he recalled: “We ended 5a with God coming down and breaking up a fight between some of his boys.”
Up to this point, the elusive Heavenly Father had avoided all contact with his wayward son Lucifer after the devil staged an uprising in Heaven.
Although fans were preparing for an emotional farewell to the series, the streaming service delighted viewers by renewing Lucifer for a sixth instalment last year.
However, it’s currently unknown whether Haysbert will be reprising his role for the final season.
Additionally, Woodside also hinted that the episode he directed for season six, ‘Save the Devil, Save the World’, could be one of the saddest.
He explained: “Mine is the last episode we will get to see the entire cast, all of the characters together all at the same time for most of the episode.”
“There’s no easy way to say it, it’s sad. This is a cast that actually really loves each other.”
The cast and crew have currently been saying their own farewells after filming wrapped up on season six last week.
After becoming one of Netflix’s most popular shows to date, viewers are already getting ready for the tears to flow when Lucifer delivers its final ten episodes.
Lucifer Season 5, Part 2 premieres Friday, May 28 on Netflix.
