It was just about a month ago when we shared the trailer for the second half of the “Lucifer” fifth season and if you didn’t see that post and care to keep pace with us just click HERE and we shall wait for your return. Welcome back 🙂 I’m here once more to share the news that the series continues on Netflix at the time of this posting and all episodes will be available to stream right now. Binging if you prefer that term. I’ll share the poster, premise and some casting once more before closing up with some editorial notions.
The Premise: The series focuses on Lucifer Morningstar, a handsome and powerful angel who was cast out of Heaven for his rebellion. As the Devil, Lucifer tires of the millennia he’s spent being the Lord of Hell, punishing people. Becoming increasingly bored and unhappy with his life in Hell, he abdicates his throne in defiance of his father (God) and abandons his kingdom for Los Angeles, where he runs his own nightclub called “Lux”. When he finds himself involved in a murder investigation, he meets the intriguing Detective Chloe Decker. After helping the LAPD solve the case by using his power to manipulate humans into revealing their deepest desires, he accepts a subsequent invitation to become a consultant to the department. Throughout the series, he learns he’s changing into someone who is diametrically different than the devil he is. But with his stubbornness and selfishness, he ends up getting Detective Decker confused about his true being. As the events unfold, several celestial and demonic threats come to Los Angeles; at the same time, Lucifer and Chloe ultimately allow their love for each other to bring them through the darkness.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: When I posted about the trailer, I mentioned that I had been watching “Lucifer” since the beginning and was very happy to find it landing on Netflix for its last few seasons. The comic series purists know how its a far left from center take on the original source material but at the end of the day this is an entertaining ride with a good cast. I will be watching this but not at the onset of its availability since the holiday weekend is here and I’ve a number of projects to tackle first. Since the last time we wrote we’ve lost the series “Black Lightning” on The CW as that ended a few days ago and the network has passed on the “Painkiller” series which didn’t make sense to do IMHO anyway. “Supergirl” is ending soon and while I haven’t heard anything yet, I think that “Legends Of Tomorrow” is next on the block. What do you readers think about the series? Are you glad that its back? Remember that a sixth and final season is coming our way and I will assume that they parse it into two as well. Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time. I will also wish you a fun but safe holiday weekend if you are planning on doing anything. See you next time.
