Lucifer is back— in more ways than one, in the jam-packed first trailer for season 5. Watch it below!
Lucifer fans don’t have much longer to wait before the first half of the series’ highly anticipated fifth season makes its way on to Netflix.
But if you’re itching for a first look as to what you can expect, Netflix has got you covered with a brand new trailer for season 5 part 1, which made its way on to the internet on Monday (July 13).
The last time we saw Lucifer (Tom Ellis) in the explosive season 4 finale, he had opted to return to Hell to to claim his throne.
Now, the king of Hell is back up on earth— or is he?
As the trailer shows, Lucifer’s return comes a quite a shock to everyone, but perhaps what is most perplexing is the fact that he’s not quite acting like himself.
“Down there, time is different,” says Lucifer as he tries to quell the suspicious worry of those around him. “I was in hell for thousands of years— a few things might have changed.”
The suspicions of his earth pals prove correct when it’s soon revealed that it’s not in fact Lucifer who’s returned, but his twin brother Michael instead.
As for Michael, he’s got his own reasons for coming up from Hell.

The sci-fi crime dramedy focuses on the titular Lord of Hell. Bored and unhappy with his life in the underworld, he resigns his throne and abandons his kingdom for the gorgeous, shimmering insanity of Los Angeles, where he gets his kicks helping the LAPD punish criminals.
The series first debuted on back in 2015 on Fox where it was eventually cancelled by the network in May 2018. Following an impassioned fan campaign, Netflix swooped in and picked up the series in June 2018.
Lucifer season 5 part 1 premieres exclusively via Netflix on August 21.
