Many ‘Lucifans’ have been following the development of the anticipated fifth season with baited breath as production on the season finale was postponed by the coronavirus pandemic.
The future of the action drama series is currently in doubt as contract talks between Lucifer star Tom Ellis and Warner Bros Television have reportedly dissolved.
Season five is expected to be the final instalment of Lucifer despite being renewed by Netflix after Fox cancelled the show after just three seasons.
In the meantime, the cast and crew of Lucifer have been taking to social media to answer questions from fans who are desperate for details regarding the show’s return.
A recent humorous exchange between a fan and Chloe Decker star Lauren German on Twitter has unearthed some tantalising details about the release of season five.
One fan asked: “Will there be any swearing involved in season five? There’s something in me that just needs to hear Chloe swear.”
Despite Lucifer’s playboy antics solidifying the series as one of the more mature entries in Netflix’s catalogue, the LAPD detective has remained straight-laced since her introduction in season one.
Lauren replied: “I don’t believe that Chloe swears in season five. There may be a few curse words from other characters (oh my!).”
Season five of Lucifer has already been confirmed to be considerably longer than the previous slate, with Netflix upping the final season to a lengthy 16 episodes.
Moreover, showrunner Ildy Modrovich also revealed each episode will be roughly an hour long compared to previous episodes’ 45-50 minute runtime.
Given the majority of season five’s photography had already been complete before the coronavirus outbreak, fans could at least expect to see the first eight episodes released sooner rather than later.
Shortly after Lauren German tweeted the news, fans quickly took to social media to speculate what this means for the future of Lucifer.
One fan also replied: “Sorry all of the cast are being asked the when question. Fans are becoming anxious to see S5a being stuck at home.
“Questions should be directed at Netflix and Warner Bros. instead since they hold the reins. You have been gracious with your gentle answers!”
Netflix and Warner Bros. have still not commented on Lucifer’s upcoming release, though season five is still expected to hit screens before the end of 2020.
