Lucifer Season 5 Official Trailer: Meet Michael, The Devil's Double

If you're a fan of Lucifer, Netflix has found a pretty good way to kick off your week: bu introducing you to our Devil's (Tom Ellis) twin, Michael. Now that our lead guy's gone off to take care of his hellish responsibilities, why let a perfectly good old life go to waste? That's where Michael comes in- except it looks like Lucifer's taking a bit of an exception to the idea. Oh, and yes: that is a creepy The Shining re-enactment scene in the trailer:

With the series set to return for its fifth season on August 21, and a sixth season now officially confirmed. Showrunners Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson have new deals signed, with Modrovich set to direct an episode during the fifth season and Henderson revealing that the season 6 writers' room is already meeting. The duo even dropped some intel on the fifth season's black-and-white, 1940s-based episode "It Never Ends Well for the Chicken," which offers a noir-stylized look back at Lucifer's (Tom Ellis) time in Los Angeles as well as new details on Maze's (Lesley Ann-Brandt) past. Then last week, fans learned that D.B. Woodside (angelic older brother Amenadiel) would also be returning for the sixth season and will direct an episode.

Lucifer makes a tumultuous return, Chloe rethinks romance, Ella finally finds a nice guy, and Amenadiel adjusts to the whole fatherhood thing.

Here's a look back at the shooting script info tweet sent out to usher in the title of the season 5 opener, sporting the curious-sounding title "Really Sad Devil Guy" – written by executive producer Jason Ning (The Expanse) and directed by Eagle Egilsson (Gotham). Following the opener, viewers can look forward to "Lucifer! Lucifer! Lucifer!", "¡Diablo!", "It Never Ends Well for the Chicken", "Detective Amenadiel", "BluBallz", "Our Mojo", "Spoiler Alert", "Family Dinner", "Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam", "Resting Devil Face", "Daniel Espinoza: Naked and Afraid", "A Little Harmless Stalking", "Nothing Last Forever", "Is This Really How It's Going To End?!", and "A Chance at a Happy Ending" (so much to unpack in that run of titles).
