Lucifer Season 5: Supernatural "God" Rob Benedict Is Getting Devilish

With the fifth season set to start on August 21 and sixth season renewal already announced, "Lucifans" have a very familiar face to look forward to when Lucifer returns to Netflix. Fresh from his stint as The Almighty aka Chuck over at The CW's Supernatural, Rob Benedict is set to join the Tom Ellis/Lauren German-starring series for its summer return. Benedict's Vincent Le Mec is a hardened French Mercenary whose violent work brings him to Los Angeles — and into the crosshairs of Lucifer, Chloe, and the LAPD.

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).

Series co-showrunner Ildy Modrovich is set to helm the season's penultimate episode, "Is This Really How It's Going To End?!" (written by Ning, and what a wonderfully ironic title). Now that she's free to talk about it (so wait, as showrunner would she have to yell at herself if she spoiled anything), here's Modrovich's thoughts on the announcement:
