‘Lucifer’ Season 5 Trailer Drops and Reveals Satan Has an Evil Twin

The countdown to new Lucifer episodes begins. After gracing fans with updates about the series, Netflix just dropped a generous teaser trailer for season 5. Raise a glass, clap your hands, and get ready to spill your deepest desires because the devil himself, Lucifer Morningstar, is about to rise again. Kind of.

Lucifer season 5 trailer pulls out some tricks

Summer just got a tad hotter with the release of Lucifer’s season 5 first trailer. We’re sure this won’t be the only tease, but there are nearly two satisfactory minutes of flaming bliss for fans to keep on replay.

It is clear that there will be a collision of Earth, heaven, and hell, and multiple beings are pulling the strings.

In this trailer, we’re reminded of Luci’s dutiful descent back to hell to keep demons from overrunning his other home. Poor Chloe is drowning her sorrows in work, wine, and clubbing.

But things switch up when we’re introduced to Lucifer 2.0. He tells Amenadiel he decided to pop back in on Earth after getting bored. Something is off, and Chloe can tell.

It’s his messy twin brother Michael who apparently was locked in hell. Yikes! Tom Ellis with an American accent playing a “bad” version of Lucifer? Fans dig it.

There will be plenty of hand-to-hand fights, grown folks’ time with Detective Decker, and family dysfunction. But who let this guy out his cage?

Michael may not be the primary focus of the season, but his presence has to be connected to something bigger.

Fans are impressed with the storyline

It was unexpected, but most fans knew in advance that season 5 would pull out all the stops.

It was also revealed that more angelic family members would be joining the fun, and Michael is apparently one of them. Netflix’s Dead to Me recently used the twin brother twist and it worked well, but Lucifer fans didn’t exactly see this coming.

With that said, many can’t wait to see where the story goes and how Lucifer’s mythology is flipped. On Instagram, one fan wrote, “Bloody hell, this looks amazing” and another commented, “Ok, this is going to be very interesting.”

One YouTube commenter joked, “Imagine in the middle of the fight between Lucifer and Michael, God comes down and stops them…..”

While fans are excited about the direction of season 5, many just want to see Lucifer and Chloe have an uninterrupted, love-filled Deckerstar moment.

When does Lucifer season 5 premiere?

Don’t forget that the series returns to Netflix on August 21 with part 1. Yes, part 1. Half of season 5’s 16 episodes will drop this summer and the others will be released later.

Viewers can look forward to meeting Luci’s almighty father (played by Dennis Haysbert), some of his siblings, and a few of hell’s residents.

Additionally, Eve is set to blow back into town and will attempt to make amends with Maze.

Until the designated date, we can all speculate about Michael’s role in the larger plot and if he’ll live up to his reputation in folklore as a warrior angel.
