Spoiler-Free Review of “Lucifer” Season 5 Part 1 on Netflix: Well Worth the Wait

**This is a spoiler-free review so feel free to read on!**

“City of Angels…I’ve missed you.”

Lucifer follows the devil himself, who decides to take a vacation on earth while teaming up with Detective Chloe Decker to solve crimes. The show is extremely popular and a fan favorite. Season 5 will feature 16 episodes in total. Part 1 premiered on August 21st 2020 with eight new episodes (approximately 55-60 minutes in length). The show stars Tom Ellis, Lauren German, Kevin Alejandro, D.B. Woodside, and Lesley Ann-Brandt.

Lucifer has certainly been through Hell and back (literally) over the seasons and we have also witnessed an epic kind of will-they-won’t-they love between him and Chloe. We know that Lucifer has been confirmed for a final season 6, but season 5 looks like it will be jam-packed with quite a lot.

Here is the trailer:

Lucifer Season 5 Part 1 gives us everything we have been waiting for and more. We get fun episodes, a new villain, and several twists and reveals that will have you on the edge of your seat.

But, has Lucifer season 5 part 1 done enough to measure up to its previous seasons? Let’s find out…

The Pros:

Standout Episodes.

Lucifer joins veteran shows like Charmed, Supernatural, and It‘s Always Sunny in Philadelphia with a super entertaining noir episode that is just brilliantly done. We get spectacular musical performances, a twist that continues the plot, and more.

This may be one of my favorite episodes yet. I thought that season 5 did a good job overall of providing us with some truly great standalone episodes.

The Ladies Night out that was teased a while back was also truly fantastic!

More please!

Supporting characters get the development they deserve.

Maze is my favorite character on the show so I was truly happy to see her get some much needed screen time. Her character goes through quite the journey on the show, which was needed.

Other supporting characters like Linda, Ella, and Dan also finally get the chance to become more than just one of the gang. We saw some really vulnerable moments for all of them and I really appreciated the attention to this.

The moments we have been waiting for have arrived.

I won’t be listing any spoilers in this review, but let’s just say that some of the moments we have been anxiously waiting for have finally arrived and…wow!

Enjoy them!!!!!

The Cons:

We need more episodes!

Seriously, the only con I can come up with is that we have to wait for Part 2 to be released. We don’t know when that will be as of yet, but it’s safe to say that it will be in 2021 since production had to be halted during the pandemic.

So am I in or out?

I think it’s safe to say that I’m in 100 percent!!!!!

Season 5 may be my favorite season yet! Every episode got better and better. The plot kept you on the edge of your seat the entire time and the reveals were beyond amazing. I can’t wait for new episodes!!!!!!
