Today we were blessed with a gift sent straight from hell: Part one of Lucifer season five is now on Netflix. And if the reviews of season five of Lucifer are anything to go by, it's going to be one of the best yet. The charming devil is back, and we're all thirstier than we've ever been. Here's what everyone has been saying about the new episodes, before you prepare to binge watch them all in one sitting. The new season sees Lucifer against an equally devilish twin brother Lucifer is all about Lucifer Morningstar, who is the actual devil.
In the comedy-drama he's moved to LA after a tiresome life of being in control of Hell. He becomes involved with a detective and he and his allies help solve murders and crimes. Season five sees him up against the biggest challenge he's faced yet – a twin brother. Michael is the latest to descend on Earth and his mission is to destroy everything Lucifer has built in LA by masquerading as him. There's also a "bloody musical" episode in season five – which will be all singing and dancing.
And don't forget, in total this season will have a bumper 16 episodes. The release date for part two, containing the further eight episodes, has not yet been confirmed by Netflix. The reviews of season five of Lucifer are calling it 'unhinged', 'chaotic' and 'phenomenal' If the reviews of part one of season five of Lucifer are anything to go by, everyone was right to get so excited about it. TV Guide has called it "more chaotic and hornier than ever", adding it is "set to clear the very high bar set by the show's first Netflix season". It goes on to describe the series as "unhinged joy" and an "addictive watch". Inverse adds that the series brings "more devilish delights" and says: "Season five takes everything that you already liked about Lucifer and makes it even better." And it looks like Twitter approves too. Once you scroll through the countless memes which are already being made, and viewers screaming over Tom Ellis (same), people are calling the new episodes "phenomenal" and the "best thing I've ever seen". I've almost cried, screamed with joy and haven't stopped smiling since watching. This season is phenomenal and another reason why I love this show so much #LuciferSeason5 #Michaelisadick — danielle carpenter (@DanC887) August 21, 2020 Dear god Season 5 ep 4 of @LuciferNetflix might just be the best thing I've ever seen — Ewan (@Thadimedes) August 21, 2020 Watch the trailer for season five of Lucifer on Netflix here: Season five, part one of Lucifer is available on Netflix now.

The former X Factor judge does have a small role in the second chapter, which focuses on a grizzly murder committed within the confines of a simulated Mars base.

What episode of Lucifer is Sharon Osbourne in? Sharon Osbourne appears in season five, episode two of Lucifer on Netflix, which is available to stream now. Listed as a guest star, her name pops up in the credits at around the eight-minute mark, prior to her appearance 11 minutes in, capping off a montage of suspects from the aforementioned Mars base. Who does Sharon Osbourne play in Lucifer? The Mars base simulation where the murder takes place is open to any super wealthy person with a dream of intergalactic travel. In the Lucifer universe, Osbourne is apparently one such person, having spent time in the simulated red planet environment with the eventual murder victim. "Not to speak ill of the dead, but Judy was a bit of a party pooper," Mrs Osbourne tells the LAPD. "We had about five books the entire time we were in there, and she managed to spoil the endings to all of them." Detective Decker accuses her of biting the head off a bat before stabbing the victim, even whipping out her best Ozzy impression to pack a little more punch into the accusation. "Actually, that was my husband that bit the head off a bat," Sharon replies, before turning to Lucifer and saying: "By the way, I never managed to thank you for all the things you did for Ozzy… from one prince of darkness to another, right?" The cameo references an instance in January 1982, when Ozzy Osbourne bit the head off a bat at a rock concert. It's unclear whether the animal was dead or alive, but Ozzy required urgent rabies vaccinations after the show. For any fans wondering, after denying the crime ("I did not stab her in her sorry space arse"), Sharon Osbourne disappears and is never again mentioned in the episode or the rest of the season. It's unclear exactly how the role was arranged; either Sharon is a fan of the show and requested a cameo or the showrunners were keen to sneak a celebrity into their space habitat to surprise viewers. We expect more details to emerge soon, so watch this space. Lucifer is available to stream on Netflix. Looking for something else to watch?
