Lucifer season 5 spoilers: Who is Lucifer’s twin brother?

Of course, the trailer’s biggest revelation was the unexpected introduction of Lucifer’s twin brother. Although we’re initially led to believe that Lucifer returns just in the nick of time to rescue Chloe from what appears to be a home invasion, we discover that Lucifer is still away in Hell and that it’s his twin brother Michael who has resurfaced.

As the trailer makes clear, Michael has no intention of revealing his true identity and is set on taking over the life Lucifer has built for himself. Upon arriving from Hell, Michael wastes no time in assuming Lucifer’s identity and easing into his life — even sharing a passionate kiss with Chloe.

While the show will be writing Michael as Lucifer’s twin brother, biblically speaking Lucifer and Michael were not twins. They do however find themselves on opposing sides, though, which is dynamic season 5 will likely explore. His introduction also poses another interesting question…

Lucifer season 5 spoilers: Will Michael’s arrival lead to the introduction of God?

As previously reportedLucifer season 5 will introduce fans to Lucifer’s estranged father with the casting of Dennis Haysbert as God. Aside from the fact that we know God is coming, little is known about his arrival or what might bring him into the picture.

Although the season 5 trailer did not feature any glimpse of God himself, the arrival of Michael does make us wonder whether he could be the catalyst to God’s introduction. It seems clear Michael will be serving as the season’s Big Bad and will create more than a little friction this season, but what if he takes things too far leading to God’s arrival?

Michael is often connected with the ending of the world, so could his arrival this season be a hint at a bigger battle ahead for Lucifer and company? With the series nearing its end, it would indeed be a major storyline to explore and tackle in the upcoming final episodes.
