After what feels like three million years for fans, Netflix has finally announced the premiere date for Lucifer season 5B, otherwise known as season 5, part 2.
The streaming giant shared the good news with fans on Tuesday morning, confirming the new half-season will premiere May 28. Not long now, pals.

The series focuses on Lucifer (Tom Ellis) who, after becoming bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, resigns his throne and abandons his kingdom for Los Angeles. What does he do? He helps the LAPD solve crimes and is particularly drawn to detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German).
Rachael Harris (Linda Martin), Lesley-Ann Brandt (Mazikeen), Kevin Alejandro (Dan Espinoza), D.B. Woodside (Amenadiel), and Aimee Garcia (Ella Lopez) co-star.
In Part A of the fifth season, Lucifer’s twin brother Michael (also Ellis) secretly takes the devil’s place on Earth while he’s back doing his thing in Hell.
Luci must later return and face the mess his brother made with his life, which includes finally confronting his feelings for Chloe.
Will they? Won’t they? I don’t bloody know anymore.
Oh, and then season 5A ended with a goddamn cliffhanger.
The insanely popular supernatural series was renewed for its sixth and final season last June, which is a bloody fair effort after it was initially cancelled by Fox after its third season in 2018. Then Netflix swooped in and resurrected it.
If you ask me, being axed by Fox was probably the best thing that ever happened to Lucifer. I reckon being literally cancelled gave the cast and crew a sort of ~ yolo ~ energy, resulting in that special noir episode from season 5A and the upcoming musical ep in season 5B.
And when I say musical, I mean musical.
Why not, hey?
Remember when Lucifer teased season 4 with this?
This is not a teaser, this is just horny content.
Anyway, Tom Ellis shared a proper teaser of the musical episode on Twitter last September, after it debuted at the DC FanDome convention.
Behold, the LAPD performing ‘Another One Bites The Dust’ by Queen around a dead body.
