Lucifer Season 5 Reviews
For the past two seasons, the show has been toned down a bit. The last season doesn’t show too much violence and sex but it was enough to address the fact that series is about Demon, Devil, and murder. As compared to the previous Lucifer seasons, this season is a bit mild.
At the end of season 4, Lucifer (Tom Ellis) returns to Hell to claim his throne back and also to save the newborn child of Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) and Linda (Rachal Harris) and save earth from an apocalypse too. Too much was on stake and great sacrifice was needed. Real-Life Annabelle Escaped From the Warren Museum?

Unlike the previous, season 5 of Lucifer is stretched and extended. It has 16 episodes in total, out of which 8 are released in part 1. Even after having long plots, none of them leads to any interesting point, for instance, Linda’s subplot. The character development of Maze is very little, even her storyline has numerous interesting turning points but at the end, it goes nowhere.
When Will Lucifer Season 5 Part 2 Be Released?
Season 4 of Lucifer was able to bind the whole story and viewers were able to connect with it easily but its not the same case with season 5. The story is seem scattered which eventually impacted less on the audience. It’s quite a frustration for the viewers to sit through the overextended scenes.
Episode 9: “Family Dinner”
Episode 10: “Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam”
Episode 11: “Resting Devil Face”
Episode 12: “Daniel Espinoza: Naked and Afraid”
Episode 13: “A Little Harmless Stalking”
Episode 14: “Nothing Lasts Forever”
Episode 15: “Is This Really How It’s Going to End?!”
Episode 16: “A Chance at a Happy Ending”
The good thing about this season is a strong performance from the lead characters like Lucifer (Tom Ellis) both as a hero and an antagonist. Tom Ellis’ Michael is a character that many people will be looking forward to, its exact opposite to Lucifer.
As a final verdict, season 5 possesses the same vibe as all the previous season of Lucifer. But there is some character’s storyline that doesn’t look to any conclusion and how can we forget the overstretched scenes. The bright side is that due to talented cast members the show is still interesting and worth waiting for part 2 of season 5.
