And we have also learned…
Inbar Lavi will return (perhaps briefly) as Eve this season.
There are no details yet on what brings the first woman back, but you can check out this picture released to EW:
The Imposters alum first appeared as Eve in season 4, which saw Eve abandon heaven in order to reconnect with her devilish ex-boyfriend Lucifer (Tom Ellis), who was going through his own identity crisis in the wake of Chloe (Lauren German) discovering the truth about him.
In a surprising twist, though, Eve ended up developing a romantic connection with Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt); however, after defeating the demons who tried to kidnap Baby Charlie, Eve decided to leave Maze and set off on a journey of self-discovery.
“We are so excited to have Inbar back!” Lucifer showrunners Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson told EW in a statement. “Last we saw her, Eve broke Maze’s heart. Soooo… a reunion between our favorite demon and the original sinner should go smoothly, right?”
When the new season picks up, Maze is still recovering from that heartbreak.
Luckily, she has a friend in Chloe, who is going through something similar because Lucifer returned to Hell right after she admitted she loved him.
Season 5 is shaping up to be fantastic!
Netflix has not yet announced when the first 8 episodes will be released, but expect it to be this spring.
