Fans of Lucifer have eagerly anticipated the season 5, but we’re not gonna be able to claim the jackpot in one go.
Just when the production for the season finale drew to a close, Netflix suddenly had to put everything on hold. Lucifer star Tom Ellis reveals that they were about to finish filming the last episode of the new season when the COVID-19 pandemic brought it to a halt.
“We were agonisingly close to wrapping but lockdown beat us,” Ellis told in a recent interview with DA MAN magazine. “We still have 60 per cent of our season five finale to shoot.”
While it’s still a question when the filming would resume, Ellis acknowledges that it’s not gonna be an easy task once they get back to work again.
“It’s going to be challenging to say the least. We’ve had to find a way to stay safe whilst remaining productive. Film sets are usually a hive of activity with people constantly making adjustments and last-minute tweaks in small, confined spaces,” said Ellis.
“Now, with the restrictions, everyone has to take their turn to do their job, so it’s going to have a big knock on effect to how much we can physically shoot in a day.”
Lucifer Season 5 will arrive in two parts. The first 8 episodes will premiere on Netflix on Friday, August 21, while the latter part has yet to get a proper release date. But it’s not all bad news: Netflix had initially planned that the series would end in 5 seasons, but due to an unprecedented turn of events, the streaming giant extended it until season 6.
