Lucifer Season 5 Spoilers: New Photos from ‘First Case’ in Episode Four Released in EW
New images from the first case of Lucifer, in the Netflix drama’s Season 5’s black-and-white episode titled “It Never Ends Well for the Chicken” has been released exclusively by Entertainment Weekly.
The said black-and-white episode, which will be the fourth episode in the first half of Lucifer Season 5, scheduled to premiere on August 21, 2020, will recount what happened to Lucifer when he visited Los Angeles in the 1940s. Fans will also get to know Maze’s past.
“Whenever you play [with] flashbacks, the question is always, ‘What’s the time frame that can reflect a person?’ What’s nice about noir is it’s detective stories, but Lucifer isn’t a detective yet. So what we’re almost seeing, to a certain extent, is Lucifer’s first case,” co-showrunner Joe Henderson tells EW. “There is a case, there is a mystery to solve, but it’s just more filtering our [show’s] language through noir.”
“Tom Ellis is made for this style. He kind of is Cary Grant. I think there’s always been something about his portrayal of Lucifer [that’s] old school, that harkens back to the extravagance and elegance of old Hollywood and just noir,” says co-showrunner Ildy Modrovich, explaining why they picked this era.”There was a moment in our arc where Lucifer needed to give us a little backstory on a character and tell us what happened to [him] a long time ago and we thought, ‘Perfect moment for a Princess Bride moment. So, let’s open it up and have Lucifer tell this story to someone. And if we’re really doing an homage to Princess Bride, that person should be Trixie [Scarlett Estevez].'”
It has been reported that the original script of Season 5 – when it was the final season with just 10 episodes, did not include this story. The writers decided to delve into this part of the story, when the episode count was increased to 16 from 10.
The producers of the show are said to very much excited for fans to see the completely new characters that everybody portray, especially Lesley-Ann Brandt’s performance, which they are sure with break your heart.
