Are you still dangling off that cliffhanger the Lucifer midseason finale left us on? The wait for the second half of Season 5 will definitely be hellish, but we have faith that Netflix won't leave us hanging for too long!

Netflix announced its unconventional release schedule for Lucifer Season 5 back in 2019, confirming that the 16-episode season would be cut in half, with eight episodes airing in August of 2020 and the rest to air at a later, unannounced date. The midseason finale saw Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) duke it out with their brother Michael, only for God (Dennis Haysbert) to finally show up after five seasons of ghosting his kids in order to break up the fight. And heaven help us, that's actually where they left us!

Right now, we know plenty of details about the back half of Season 5, even if we don't know how the whole God situation will pan out. Read on to find out everything we know about Season 5 Part 2!

There's no premiere date yet. Netflix has not announced when the second half of the season will debut, but TVLine reports that the series went back into production to finish filming the back half in September. We're likely looking at an early to mid-2021 release date for Part 2.

It's not the final season like we thought. Season 5 was supposed to be the end of the series, but for the second time, Lucifer got itself un-canceled. The final season will begin filming directly after production wraps on the final episodes of Season 5.

There will be a musical episode. A full-blown musical episode will kick off the second half of Season 5Entertainment Weekly reports the musical episode will be the ninth episode of the season, titled "Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam," and unlike the noir episode in the first half of the season which featured musical performances, this episode will take on an actual musical format. The first sneak peek of the episode was revealed at DC Fandome in September.
