‘Lucifer’ season 5: What the fans want to see
Lucifer, you old devil, you! You were already named as the most bingewatched show on Netflix of all time – then you snagged yourself a fiery renewal for a fifth season.
The S5 order was a double-edged sword. In one stroke, what Netflix giveth was taken away: Netflix only ordered a single, stingy, final season. Of course the fans aren’t happy – and neither are we.
Although it seems this time Lucifer is ending rather than being cancelled, there are still so many stories to be told featuring the devil himself. While there’s a loud #SaveLucifer campaign happening – and even murmurings of a Lucifer feature – we wanted to take a break from all the politics and focus on the future of S5. We took a little break from our newsroom to sit down with the Lucifer fandom and ask them.
What are the Lucifer storylines you deeply desire for S5?
First I like to watch his relationship with his daddy. Then I’d like to understand any physics, chemistry or biology between Chloe and Luci so we can learn why they are drawn to each other.
I want an explanation about the connection between Chloe and Lucifer. And . . . I admit it, I want them to end up together, like forever, by a miracle or something.
I’d love to get more backstory and learn the reason Chloe was essentially created for Lucifer. My ideal ending for the series would be that she is able to spend eternity with Lucifer – whether that be as “Queen of Hell” or that a replacement is found for Lucifer and they can come and go from Earth to the silver city.
Of course she wouldn’t leave Trixie, but in the grand scheme of eternity, Trixie will be grown up in no time. Lucifer deserves a happy ending. I don’t see Chloe as the Queen of Hell type, so I’d guess it would need to be the latter– which would be fine with me as long as they are together in the end.
If there is going to be a Lilith I am very interested to know how they are going to portray her. Also is there going to be an archangel Michael? The one who threw Lucifer in hell forever is there going to be such a character? Little Charlie? Is his life going to be in danger?
We want to see the characters become more earthly (they already are) and tackle more real life problems but we want them to be more angelic or demonic at the same time. I want Ella and Dan to know the truth in the most funny terrifying way. I don’t want the series to lose its funny touch.
I have a hard time finding a solution for Lucifer and Chloe together but the writers can surprise us. Who knows what else hides in her miracle character that is yet to be revealed. I want Maze to finally show how sweet and sensitive she is but never lose her fierce demonic side.
Is there going to be a great love for Maze? I do not want a return of Eve. How is Lucifer’s character going to evolve after returning from hell and showing his love to Chloe? We as always want a funny, sophisticated, eloquent and even a terrifying Lucifer who finally finds his place in the world. We want to see a super mommy Linda who is always a great “doctor”. We want to see more angels and demons coming for one reason or another.
You see, with all that I have in mind a season 5 with just 10 episodes is not enough. But I am all ears and eyes to know how the writers are going to shrink it up wonderfully in just 10 episodes. You have a hard and amazing job.
I’m hoping/looking for some smart theological twist that is both plausible regarding religious tradition but also dynamic against that tradition. A big big request, I know. But still, could you pull it off?
I want Lucifer to sing and dance again. I want Hell to be so boring with a depressed Lucifer, that the demons ask him to leave the place and go back amongst the living.
Plenty of Deckstar scenes
Mostly, I want things to happen as they did till now. Talking about the jokes, drama and so on. At first, I didn’t think one sec that I would love this series.
I love that I’ve learned so much that I didn’t know from Lucifer all about his brothers and sisters, Lilith and Adam, the Goddess of all Creation . . . so interesting as well as brilliantly entertaining. I’m sure the writers will make Season 5 epic!?
I want to see Deckerstar have a baby together!
I want Lucifer to finally get the happiness he deserves. He deserves happiness and he deserves to be with the one he loves and that loves him back.
In addition to what has been already said, I’m curious to know the story behind Lucifer’s ring that he always wears on his right hand.
It is time to let Trixie grow up. The last few episodes it was clear that they were making her look younger than she is.
Lots of steamy scenes with Lucifer and Chloe.. After 4 seasons of unreleased tension!
Michelle Rona Chiba
For Maze to have a soul. A Deckerstar love scene for sure and also for us to meet other angels.
All the characters have a story to tell, even the ones we lost along the way. Pierce for instance, his story would be very interesting.
Laura Todd Johnson
Have Cleo go to hell to be with Lucifer or have Cleo be the one to get Lucifer out of hell. I’d love to see Luci and Cleo go on honeymoon.
Lucifer finally solve his Daddy issues and a lot of epic scenes with those angelic wings wide open.
Victoria Elizabeth Roberts
Ok, Lucifer and Chloe get together. Lucifer makes a deal with one of his siblings, that he’ll take over hell again when Chloe dies. Anyway, fast forward to when Chloe dies of old age. As we know God never “tells” anyone anything. So he shows her the pearly gates/heaven and then alternatively a heartbroken Lucifer sitting on his throne in hell.
Dan and Maze become partners in a Bounty Hunting Company. And someone else had a good idea on this forum, Luci and Chloe help guilty souls get into heaven. Main thing Deckerstar.
David Harrison Hopkins II
I want to see Lucifer find a way to be with Chloe forever. His immortality and being banned from the silver city is a pretty big issue. I want to see Ella and Detective Douche learn the truth. And I think a catch up scene where Lucifer explains all the crazy shit he’s done for her that she wasn’t capable of believing at the time.
For Tom to sing “Wicked Game” on the show . . . or whatever else he’s been working on.
I would really love to hear a piano version of “Wicked Game”.
Victoria Elizabeth Roberts
Maybe he has a piano in hell and he’s singing “Wicked Game”, heartbroken, knowing he’ll never see her again. (We know different!)
I personally would love to see Chloe get shot/dying then praying to Samael (Amenadiel told her how to). She does and causes Lucifer to return to save her with a feather. When he saves her both Ella and Dan happen to see him toss around bad guys with his wings and rescue Chloe. He takes her back to his penthouse so she completely recovers. Dan and Ella don’t tell Lucifer they know his secret but have to deal with now knowing.
The apocalypse happens and everyone must sort where their eternal soul resides.
Ok I’m a bit of a perv but I kinda want to see Maze seduce Chloe.
I want to meet Maze’s mom! Bring me Lilith.
Definitely Chloe and Lucifer have to get a happily ever after. I’d also love to see Michael, Lucifer’s twin brother, therefore also played by Tom Ellis but looking and acting very different.
I want Luci and Chloé get married or are together forever on earth or in hell.
Lisa M Waswil Burke
My deepest desire is to have more seasons.
Lucifer struggling in hell after his time on earth has changed him.
I want a maze spinoff.
What if he didn’t really go to hell and it was all a dream?
Chloe never said she loved him. And she did marry Pierce and they are having twins who grow up to have one kill the other like Cain did Abel.
Charlie grows up on earth.
Trixie becomes a bounty hunter like Maze.
Lucifer gets with someone who isn’t Chloe.
Adam comes to find Eve.
A Lilith appearance would be nice as well
Zarah Joy Erencio
Luci suffered in hell and praying to God to send him again on earth to be with Chloe and others. I want Ella and Daniel to see who Lucifer really is and accept him.
Lucifer and Chloe together from the first or second episode, solving crimes. I would also like to see Lucifer back in therapy with Linda, to cope with his new status of Chloe’s boyfriend. Ella and Dan should know the truth about Lucifer in the fifth or sixth episode.
A SIXTH SEASON. A kiss that makes a tear, at least one gratuotous sex scene, the detective to ask Lucifer what he desires, maybe Charlie’s wings getting clipped to protect him.
Everybody loves crossovers. Riverdale and The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina are full of opportunities for the filling of plot holes and audience attraction.
I never want to see Eve again. She poisoned Lucifer and her character is fraudulent. She was actually the only character I would fast forward until she wasn’t in the scene.
Lucifer and Chloe to be together, have a baby cousin for Charlie. As Chloe is Lucifer’s gift from dad so they should be together. Maze find someone special. Dan and Ella get together.
Lynne Hartley Brummitt
Want to see Charlotte back(pregnant) with Dan’s child and live next door to Amenadeal and Linda
After a tragic breakup with Lucifer, I think Chloe should find out she’s pregnant with his baby.
I want to let Chloe know all of the sacrifices that Lucifer made for her. Especially when he went and died for her, he went back to hell for her. More Angel siblings!
Eve to meetup with both Cain and Abel . .. and maybe an appearance of Adam
Luci in a kilt.
Finally just to let Chloe and Lucifer be together.
And maybe give god a proper character and provide Lucifer with some of the answers to properly close the series
Just for Lucifer and Chloe to be happy. I know it’s cheesy but I want that scene at the end where they kiss and Trixie laughs when she sees them with a “I knew it all along” look on her face. I also want to see them play monopoly together again.
I want Chloe and Dan to reunite and Lucifer to be Lucifer in hell.
Candice Kerrick Winkler
Lucifer and Chloe in bed, both sweaty, and him looking amazed/confused/blush because she does in fact have moves that made the Devil blush.
