Lucifer Season 5

When LUCIFER was damned to cancellation after its third season, fans reacted globally with an online campaign to #SaveLucifer: and it worked. Streaming service Netflix stepped in to offer salvation to the "police procedural meets theological fantasy" series, based off the comic book series created by Neil Gaiman.

At least, for a time.

The fourth season started answering the questions raised by that season three cliffhanger, where Detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German) became fully aware that Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis) was exactly who he always purported to be, and ended with him having to return to his place ruling Hell in order to keep Decker safe.

But it seems the fifth season is the last gasp for the series, and it puts Lucifer against his second greatest foe ever (presuming of course that "Dad" is his greatest). While hsi friends and acquaintances come to terms with the fact that they will never see him again -- he seemingly returns! But it's not him at all, but someone a bit more powerful.

It's Tom Ellis versus Tom Ellis in the climactic season to the fan favorite, as Lucifer's twin brother, Michael, steps into Lucifer's life to claim it for his own.
