After Netflix played a devilish game with fans this weekend, they officially confirmed today the release date for the new Lucifer season.

We broke the news yesterday, and the streaming giant tweeted this morning, that Season 5 Part 1 will be coming August 21.

They also released the following statement: ‘In the stunning fifth season, the stakes are higher than ever!

Secrets will be revealed, beloved characters will die, and we’ll finally get an answer to the question, “Will they or won’t they?”‘



Lesley-Ann Brandt responded: “Gird your loins people.”



Lead writer Chris Rafferty tweeted out: ‘THE RELEASE DATE IS OFFICIAL!’



JimHeath.TV broke the news yesterday after Netflix, without any fanfare, announced that the new season was coming.

The announcement was posted for most of Sunday on current episodes of Lucifer.

But there was no official word, meaning someone leaked the information.

After Netflix posted the date, Lucifans were obviously elated with the news:





But as suddenly as the August 21 date appeared, it disappeared.

After a lot of traffic to JimHeath.TV from Los Angeles throughout the afternoon after we broke the news, Netflix suddenly removed the date and replaced it with “Another Season Is Coming.”




The cast and writers did not tweet about the date, as Netflix attempted to put the genie back in the bottle.

The streaming giant isn’t saying who was responsible for putting the date on episodes, and they have yet to release a statement.

The release date comes a day before the DC-themed, online-only convention, dubbed DC FanDome.

The free “immersive virtual fan experience” is a 24-hour-long event to be held on August 22.

The cast is back shooting the final episodes of the fifth season now.

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


Dennis Haysbert joins Tom Ellis on Lucifer for Season 5.


Following the August release, the second 8 episodes will likely be dropped in February, which is a major ratings period in television.

This news follows a message from Lucifer star D.B. Woodside who tweeted last week: β€œDear Lucifans. Good things are happening. Pls continue to be patient.”



As we broke this story, JimHeath.TV will continue to be there throughout the upcoming season Lucifans!
