On August 21, 2020, Netflix put Lucifer season 5 online, but subscribers had the unpleasant surprise of only having access to the first eight episodes. The streaming giant was forced to split the new season into two parts because some scenes from the last episode couldn’t be shot due to the crash.
Finally, the lost scenes were shot in October and since then the post-production phase (editing, mixing, special effects…) has begun. We thought that a few months would be more than enough but it seems that the production teams are having organizational problems. The epidemic imposes a new way of working and slows down all ongoing projects.
With this tweet, we now know that the second part of season 5 will not arrive in the next few months as the recent filming stop in the United States has impacted the post-production of season 5. At this time, therefore, it’s impossible to predict when the new Lucifer episodes will be released. Hopefully, we don’t have to wait until next August, but unfortunately, it seems that this scenario is becoming more and more credible.
