Netflix has finally released the new Lucifer Season 5 trailer for the upcoming eight new episodes of their hit supernatural series, which will be available for streaming on Friday, May 28. The video highlights the arrival of Lucifer, Amenadiel and Michael’s all-knowing father, God, as he tries to mend his relationship with his devil son while also announcing his impending retirement.

Based very loosely on the Vertigo comic, Lucifer tells the story of the original fallen angel. Bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, Lucifer Morningstar abandoned his throne. He then retired to Los Angeles, where he has teamed up with LAPD detective Chloe Decker to take down criminals.

Season 5 is divided into two parts, with Golden Globe nominee Dennis Haysbert (24, Major League) signing on for the role of God. The latest season stars Tom Ellis as the titular devil, Lauren German as Chloe, Kevin Alejandro as Dan, Lesley-Ann Brandt as Mazikeen, D.B. Woodside as Amenadiel, Rachel Harris as Linda, Scarlett Estevez as Trixie, and Aimee Garcia as Ella Lopez.

The fifth season was originally going to be the final season for the fan-favorite series. However, Netflix decided to surprise fans and renew it for a sixth and final season last year, which will consist of 10 episodes.
