Black Lives Matter will be the focus of Lucifer’s last season, according to its executive producers.
This is the final season of Lucifer Morningstar, which Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson disclosed to ET in an interview. They believe it is vital to face real-world societal issues in new storylines because Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis) works closely with the police.
According to Modrovich, who will be scripting the episode that addresses the problem, “we started looking at what we’re doing as a cop show and in what ways have we contributed or not addressed systemic concerns of the police force.”
“It was then determined that we should have a conversation with it. So we’re working on a tale that speaks directly to this issue, and we’re extremely thrilled about it.”
Aside from “speaking to the cultural reckoning we’re all going through,” Henderson noted that the writing team felt it was vital to “go at it from an emotional place and not a didactic place.”
To make sure that the show says what needs to be told and remains respectful, “a lot of voices” have weighed in on the topic in the show’s writers room, and Modrovich says everyone is “quite passionate” about getting it right.
“Because we have covered a wide range of topics, this episode has taken a lot longer than usual to conclude. As a result, many tears have been shed. “It was a statement that she made. As a result, I believe we’re on the right track.”
According to Henderson, the Lucifer cast has also been involved in the conversation, as the job they are doing is “extremely essential to all of them.”
Some of our cast has been tweeting about it a lot, as you may have noticed.” There were many persons in particular that we engaged with: DB (Woodside, who portrays Amenadiel), Lesley-Ann (Brandt), and Tom (Ellis).
Most of the students asked about this, so we listened to them and tried to make it as much dialogue as possible and listening practise.
On August 21, Netflix will release the first half of Lucifer’s fifth season, and episode five has already been hyped as one of the most emotional episodes of the show ever. There will also be a noir episode and a musical episode.
Lucifer is already accessible on Netflix, and the fifth season will be released tomorrow (August 21). With Amazon Prime Video, you can watch the first four seasons.
