Lucifer season 5, part 2’s cast consists of several returning characters as well as a handful of new faces. Originally, season 5 of the DC-Vertigo series was going to be the last one on Netflix. In a surprising turn of events, the streaming service brought whole cast back for a sixth and final season. The final season consists of ten episodes. Before fans get to the final season, however, they need to understand the events that get the characters there in season 5B.
While Lucifer’s twin brother Michael serves as the overall antagonist of the season, Lucifer season 5, part 2 has another major player: God himself. As Lucifer and Amenadiel had a showdown against Michael and Mazikeen, God arrived just in time to end their fight. But that became the final moment in the Lucifer season 5, part 1 finale, leaving fans having to wait for almost a full year before the next batch of episodes was released. Following everything that happened in the first half of the season, Lucifer season 5, part 2 only gets more intense, setting up major changes for the final season. While there are several familiar faces, there are also a few new additions, some which play vital parts in the final eight episodes of Lucifer season 5.
