‘Lucifer’ is a fantasy television series that centers around Lucifer Morningstar AKA Devil, who gives up his throne in Hell to start a life in Los Angeles. On Earth, he is the owner of a nightclub and a consultant for the LAPD. Over time, Lucifer realizes that he is changing and is no longer who he used to be. Developed by Tom Kapinos, the series originally premiered on January 25, 2016, on Fox. The series is based on the titular DC Comics character from the comic book series ‘The Sandman.’ When the show first premiered, 10.78 million viewers tuned in. However, it failed to maintain the impressive numbers as the show progressed, and eventually, the viewership dropped as low as 4.33 million.
Ultimately, Fox canceled the fantasy series after three seasons. However, Netflix picked up ‘Lucifer’ the following month due to popular demand. The fourth season released on the streamer and received critical acclaim. The viewers loved the playful tone of the series, and many particularly appreciated Tom Ellis’s captivating performance as Lucifer Morningstar.

Lucifer Season 5 Part 2 Plot: What is it About?
In the finale of Part 1 of the fifth season, we see that Amenadiel is anxious about his child being a mortal, and Charlie cannot take it anymore. Ella helps Lucifer with Chloe’s investigation, while Chloe is still missing. Later, Ella learns that Pete is the Whisper Killer. He is eventually arrested but denies kidnapping Chloe. It turns out, Michael has kidnapped Chloe to mess with Lucifer. After things come to a head, all hell breaks loose as Maze and Michael get into a fight with Lucifer and Amenadiel. The episode ends as God appears at the LAPD office and calmly suggests that his children stop fighting.
The second part of season 5 will pick up right where the finale of Part 1 ends. The executive producer Joe Henderson stated that the upcoming episodes would highlight the family angle and the emotional aspects related to it. He also said that Amenadiel’s fatherhood will be emphasized in the upcoming storylines. Even though God manages to stop the fight in the midseason finale, Lucifer and his siblings are far from burying the hatchet. But, the highlight of season 5 part 2 is the black-and-white musical episode, set in the 1940s. The second part of season 5 packs in a whole lot of drama, and this trailer is proof!
