On Friday, Netflix drops the first eight episodes of season five of the fan favorite, Lucifer
, with all the main cast returning.
Based on the character created by Neil Gaiman for the Sandman
series, the show follows Lucifer Morningstar, played by Tom Ellis, a fallen angel, who in defiance of his father, abandons his throne in Hell for LA where he owns a nightclub, Lux. After an acquaintance is murdered, Lucifer finds himself in the presence of Detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German), and he eventually becomes her partner as a consultant for the LAPD, where they battle angelic, demonic, and even human threats.
Over the course of the series, Chloe discovers that Lucifer is actually the devil. At the end of season four, she accepts Lucifer and admits to him that she loves him, making him realize that it was she who was his first true love and that the prophecy will come to pass, unleashing evil on the Earth. After a kiss, Lucifer leaves to send the demons back and once again rule over Hell.
