Meanwhile, D.B Woodside, who plays Lucifer's brother Amenadiel, recently gave an update on what fans can expect from the show when it does make its long-awaited return. Speaking to TVLine he said the first episode will "pick up literally two seconds from where we ended," adding: "When God comes, a lot of chaos is going to follow".

He continued: "Amenadiel is absolutely humiliated that God saw him behaving the way that he was with his brothers because as the oldest, he's really supposed to be the one that sets the example – and he was not doing that!"

Filming for the second half of season five officially wrapped in October, but the show's writers told fans in January that they didn't yet have a release date in mind. "We know everyone wants to know, but truth is even WE don't know when #LuciferSeason5B will come out. It's not finished yet," they wrote at the time.

"The pandemic blew up our plans. But when we have an official release date, trust us, we're dying to let you know! Same with a trailer."
