It looks like the Lucifer season 5 part 2 release date was accidentally leaked on Netflix.
According to a report from What’s on Netflix, the Lucifer season 5 part 2 titled card revealed the new episodes were coming to the streaming service on May 28, 2021.
After the Lucifer season 5 part 2 release date was reported, the release date was removed. It was replaced with the message we’ve seen for so long: “More Episodes Coming Soon,” according to the report. That message is still displayed on Netflix.
Is Lucifer season 5 part 2 really coming to Netflix in May?
UPDATE: Yes! Netflix confirmed Lucifer season 5 part 2 is coming to Netflix on May 28
Did Netflix leak the Lucifer season 5 part 2 release date?
It looks like it’s possible! We know the new season isn’t coming in April 2021 because Netflix already shared the full list of new releases.
We’ve seen this happen for Netflix shows in the past. In some instances, the release date is correct. In others, the release date has not been correct. We’ve also seen it when shows are supposed to be leaving Netflix, but then they don’t actually leave the streaming service.
It could be some kind of tech issue, but I’m not sure if that’s what happened here.
The one thing that makes me think this release date is real is because of the timing. We know Lucifer season 5 part 2 should be getting close to being done with post-production. Filming wrapped on the season in the fall, and then the cast and crew transitioned right into filming season 6.
We’ve been thinking for quite some time that Lucifer season 5 part 2 could be released on Netflix sometime this spring. Initially, we thought February 2021 might be the release month, but since then, it’s always looked like a May or later 2021 release date was in the cards.
I think this release date might be accurate. I hope it is! I know Lucifer fans have been dying to know the season 5 part 2 release date for so long. This is the first glimmer of hope in a while.
Lucifer has almost wrapped production on the whole series, if they haven’t already. That means Lucifer season 6 could, theoretically, be released on Netflix later this year.
If Lucifer season 5 part 2 is released in May or later, Lucifer season 6 most definitely will not be added to Netflix this year, even if production wraps. Netflix will, most likely, hold season 6 for the spring of 2022. That’s what we’re thinking anyway.
