Viewers are still stunned by the recent events of the Netflix series, which saw Lucifer Morningstar (played by Tom Ellis) abandon his new life on Earth.
Now the devil is back in Hell, fans have been speculating how both his mortal and celestial friends, including love interest Chloe Decker (Lauren German) will rescue him from the underworld.
There is also considerable hype surrounding the casting news for season five, including the introduction of Dennis Haysbert as Lucifer’s father, God.
However, outside of the main cast, ‘Lucifans’ are still unsure which characters will be making a return to the series in season five.

In the previous outing on Netflix, Lucifer was confronted with the arrival of his ex-wife, Eve (Inbar Lavi), the Biblical first woman created by God.
Eve returned to Earth to seek out Lucifer, believing she was still in love with him, but departed before the climactic events of the season finale.
Despite her apparent exit from the show, many fans are convinced her story is still not finished, after season four teased a relationship between Eve and Lucifer’s best friend Mazikeen (Lesley-Ann Brandt).
In an exclusive interview with AssignmentX last year, co-showrunner Joe Henderson reflected on the events of season four, as well as teasing the previously uncertain future of the series.
Now the successful series has been confirmed for both a fifth and sixth season, Lucifer fanatics are convinced the upcoming instalments could feature the return of some fan favourite characters.
In the interview, Joe touched on Eve’s role in season four and teased there is plenty more to explore when it comes to her relationships with Maze and Lucifer.
Joe explained: “She comes to Lucifer at the top of the [fourth] season because she wants to be who she used to be, but really, she just wants to be who she was with him.
“And so what we found very quickly was, okay, Maze is looking for love and finds the perfect woman, and then the tragedy is that this woman finds the perfect woman for her, too.”

Unfortunately, the closest the popular pairing managed was starting a relationship was Eve’s attempts to make Lucifer jealous by kissing Maze, which ultimately didn’t work.
Maze then realised her feelings for Eve and attempted to serenade her with a soulful version of Wonderwall in the penultimate episode of season four.
However, the co-showrunner revealed Eve still has a lot to learn about herself, which could come to a head throughout seasons five and six.
Joe continued: “Eve is not in a place where she needs that, because what she needs to do is really figure out who she is outside of being with anyone.”

Sadly, when AssignmentX asked whether fans would see Eve again, Joe could only respond “that is a good question”.
Most fans would agree Eve’s development as a character wasn’t close to being completed over the fourth season’s shortened run, so it would make a lot of sense to bring her back.
Thankfully the showrunner didn’t outright reject the possibility of her return, so Inbar Levi could once again join the cast once again and reunite with Maze in the next two seasons.
Lucifer season 5 will be released on Netflix on August 21.
