  • Lucifer season 5 will premiere on Netflix in August.
  • The season will feature a special flashback black-and-white episode set in the 1940s when Lucifer came to Los Angeles to solve his first case.
  • Last week the streaming service announced that the show was renewed for a final sixth season.


In the upcoming season of Lucifer, the show will be taking a trip down memory lane in a special black-and-white film noir episode.

On Tuesday Netflix released first look pictures of the fourth episode titled It Never Ends Well for Chicken which centres on Lucifer's (Tom Ellis) visit to Los Angeles in the 1940s in his retelling of the story the other characters take on different roles.

On why they picked this style and era co-showrunner Ildy Modrovich told Entertainment Weekly that Tom is made for this style.

"He kind of is Cary Grant. I think there's always been something about his portrayal of Lucifer [that's] old school, that harkens back to the extravagance and elegance of old Hollywood and just noir."

The episode will also delve deeper into Maze's (Lesley-Anne Brandt's) and fans can look forward to seeing her perform a musical number.
