Lucifer fans have been patiently waiting all winter and spring for Netflix to drop the first eight episodes of Season 5.
Many believed it would happen this month, considering the coronavirus pandemic has had many fans locked up at home, binge watching television.
After the success of the Tiger King, the speculation was that Netflix wanted to keep momentum going, and drop new episodes of one of their most popular series.
While COVID-19 halted production of shows like Lucifer last month, many hoped the first eight episodes were near ready to go.
But according to co-showrunner Joe Henderson that was not the case.
“There have been some post-production hiccups because of Covid, but we’re working through them pretty well,” Henderson tweeted yesterday. “Hopefully we’ll all have an answer soon”
Henderson said Netflix had not given him a heads-up on when Season 5 will start.
“Chances are, we’ll know when you do,” he wrote.
To all #Lucifans out there wondering when season 5 (part 1) drops — chances are, we’ll know when you do! There have been some post-production hiccups because of Covid, but we’re working through them pretty well. Hopefully we’ll all have an answer soon! 😈

With Henderson unaware of the premiere date, along with acknowledging a few “hiccups”, it looks the series could be delayed further from originally planned.
A late May drop seems now the most likely scenario.
Co-showrunner Ildy Modrovich is clearly anxious to spill the beans about season 5, but when asked by a fan to give some hints today, she responded: “I’m sworn to secrecy at the moment. So… going stir crazy on several levels.”

Ildy is not alone going stir crazy it seems.
Fan response is overwhelmingly anxious to get Season 5 started.
If it helps we are going stir crazy on some levels as well, so right there with you girl! 💛💛

Though good #Lucifer news would really make my day, I’ll wait patiently until you can tell us 😘 And please stay safe 🙏
But maybe you can share another BTS to make our waiting time more pleasant? 🙏😈💕

We’re all in the same Hell loop, Ildy. As long as you and the rest of the cast and crew are safe and healthy, that’s all we can hope for. Stay safe and sane! Thank you for everything you’ve done for us!

Understandable. As excited as I am to watch S5, I happily wait until the world is in a better place hopefully soon. #StaySafe

Must be frustrating to have to sit on news/announcements, but thanks for feeding us bts photos to tide us over. A I'm keeping mostly sane by creating more #Lucifer art and fanvids. 😈 The previous 4 seasons still inspire!
