Lucifer on Netflix has deep roots in comics, even if the series is miles away from the source books. In fact, the rescued murder procedural performed so well on the streamer, it extended Lucifer’s final season by six episodes. Thanks to Aimee Garcia, who plays Forensic investigator and all-around sweetheart Ella, we get our first look at Lucifer season 5. The picture of Lauren German, Rachael Harris, Lesley-Ann Brandt, and Garcia is strange. They all wear outfits their characters normally wouldn’t wear. German’s Detective Chloe Decker wears blue leopard-print pajamas. Rachel Harris’s Dr. Linda looks like a cross between Harley Quinn in the new Birds of Prey movie and a raver candy-girl. Ella is dressed in fishnets and glittery clothing. Brandt’s Maze is dressed in what appear to be mom-jeans, a novelty T-shirt, and a hoodie.
Here’s what we know about the episode. It comes from the sixth episode of season 5 of Lucifer, and it’s a first look at their “Ladies Night” episode. In seasons two and three, the ladies of Lucifer bonded over drinks and partying. Since the series will end after this season, it seems only fair that they get to have at least one more outing. It’s from the episode “BluBallz,” and it suggests that their night out will probably involve drugs and a rave. (“Do they still have those?” he asks oldly.) Of course, the title is almost certainly a double entendre, so someone’s love interest will likely be left alone during the episode.

Lucifer Season 5 Episode Titles Released, Mostly
Since the final season is their last, Netflix will take a page from AMC and HBO and release it in two parts. We get eight episodes when the show releases (likely in the summer). Then there will be a “short break,” and the final eight episodes will debut. To that end, Netflix released the titles for the first half of the show. We assume the show will continue its tradition of naming the chapters from a line of dialogue in the episode. Here are the episode titles, via TVLine.
- Episode 1: Really Sad Devil Guy
- Episode 2: Lucifer! Lucifer! Lucifer!
- Episode 3: ¡Diablo!
- Episode 4: It Never Ends Well for the Chicken
- Episode 5: Detective Amenadiel
- Episode 6: BluBallz
- Episode 7: Our Mojo
- Episode 8: Spoiler Alert
It’s unclear when we will see a teaser trailer or a proper first look at Lucifer season 5. Still, this photo from Aimee Garcia is a nice appetizer. It seems the show will continue to walk the line between emotional and funny. And, even though he denied it, it’s possible Tom Ellis will appear in the Crisis crossover as Lucifer, according to a set report.
