Much has been made about the Season 5 of Lucifer, without the series getting a greenlight actually. Lucifer that airs on the digital streaming giant Netflix hasn’t received a green light yet from the platform. But the future of this Tom Ellis series is a highly debated one. The major question that’s hit the internet is one regarding Eve, whether she will return or not. Here’s all we know about Season 5 of Lucifer so far.
One and all loved season 4 of Lucifer; fans hailed the content of the Season so much so that the next Season renewal is almost a sure shot. It must be remembered that post Season 3, Lucifer was dropped by Fox, only to be shopped by Netflix. Must warn you of spoilers at this point. However, if spoilers don’t bother you, please go ahead and read.
In Season 4, a new character made its entry in the form of Eve (played by Inbar Lavi). She was Lucifer Morningstar’s (Tom Ellis) former flame. At the end of Season 4, Lucifer decided it was time for him to venture back into hell as problems were being created in his absence. But that wasn’t all, Lucifer’s ex also decided to go on a self-discovery journey. She told Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) that she needed to find herself, kissed her goodbye, and left Los Angeles. Even felt that she’d always put men like Lucifer and Adam ahead of her needs and now it was time to get to know herself. Even also tried to entice Lucifer back into hell. She even sought the help of demon Dromos (Graham McTavish) for the same.
So does it mean, Eve will be back as a regular on Lucifer? If Season 5 gets renewed at all, will Eve be back on the show? The writers have responded that open doors have been left for Eve to be back. Co-showrunner Joe Henderson said that the crew loved working with Inbar. Hence Eve’s return looks instrumental at this point. She can redeem herself as well as Lucifer by making sure he returns from Hell. More as we have it.

While the fans were able to save the show from death after the fourth season, they now have another reason to mourn as the fifth season will be the last. Many considered that it might change if the fans protest about it, but all the chances of getting more episodes have now been called off. Recently, we got a tweet from Ildy Modrovich, the show’s executive producer, who confirmed that the fifth season will be the last.
Not just that, he also urged fans to avoid running campaigns for more episodes, as they have already talked about it to Netflix and Warner Bros. He assured that they had enough considerations of story, as well as fans before taking the decision. Nonetheless, while responding to a fan, he hinted that there might be spin-off shows. Hence, Lucifer might be over but the devil might rise again.
