The cast and crew of Lucifer are back at work!

The announcement comes after California approved production to restart.

County health officials have approved film and television production to recommence on Friday, June 12, in line with state guidelines, amid COVID-19.

That means the shooting on the final episodes of the fifth season of Lucifer can start again.

The big question is whether those episodes have been turned into one more giant cliffhanger, as a Season 6 now seems certain.

The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors and Department of Public Health released safety guidelines today for film productions.

For those in L.A., gyms, movie theaters, campgrounds, hotels and museums will also be allowed to open Friday.

This news follows a message from Lucifer star D.B. Woodside who tweeted yesterday: “Dear Lucifans. Good things are happening. Pls continue to be patient.”

 

 

Netflix is expected to announce soon when they will drop the first eight episodes of Season 5.

A source with connection to Netflix told JimHeath.TV it will be in early July, now that production on the final episodes has started.

The announcement comes just days after California approved production to restart on June 12 on Friday and the Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force submitted a white paper with suggested safety guidelines for a return to production to all 50 state governors on June 1.

Unions involved in creating the white paper, including SAG-AFTRA, the Directors Guild, IATSE and the Teamsters, are now determining craft-specific protocols to negotiate with studios and major companies including Amazon Studios, HBO and Netflix.

Without protocols from the County or state at present, industry leaders are currently following suggestions in the white paper to return to production, which include regular testing as a condition of employment, regular symptom monitoring, staggered meal times, hand hygiene and personal protective equipment provided by employers.

Lucifer co-showrunner Ildy Modrovich expressed frustration in responding to a fan that Season 5 has been on hold for too long.

“I know,” she wrote, “Feel free to be annoyed. I thought it’d be soon than it’s been. Oof.”

 

 

Ildy also gave a clue in emojis when asked by a fan to describe any deckerstar scenes from Season 5, episode 3:
