The new trailer for season 5 of Lucifer has dropped:
The news was announced alongside a caption that reads: "Based on this trailer we're pleased to confirm Lucifer still looks devilishly good."
The trailer sees Tom Ellis' Lucifer returning from hell after journeying there at the end of season four to quash a demon rebellion. Yet all is not as it seems - the returned 'Lucifer' is actually the devil's twin brother Michael.
Fans were quick to show their appreciation with one writing: "Thank you @NetflixUK for keeping this love alive... So excited right now."
Another noticed: "So it's Michael who kisses Chloe wow it's just not what we wanted we wanted Lucifer and Chloe but oh well I'm hyped for the season." Someone else wrote: "OMFG!!! Michael!! No way!!! They better not let Chloe sleep with him... we have waited too long for Lucifer and Chloe!!"
There's been a fair bit of speculation around the next instalment of the show, but one particular rumour was spectacularly quashed by the show's producer last month.
A story circulated that Ian Somerhalder (The Vampire Diaries) would be brought in to replace Tom Ellis, but producer Ildy Modrovich quite literally laughed it off.
Ellis has played the devil in the crime drama series for the last four seasons and reprises the role in the upcoming fifth instalment (while also starring as Michael).
Replying to a post that called the casting speculation the 'joke of the day,' Modrovich wrote: "Bwahahahaha!"
Bwahahahaha!!!! #Lucifer #LUCIFERONNETFLIX https://t.co/II7DMzK3jD

So, it's safe to say he's not going anywhere anytime soon, especially considering he's signed up to star in the recently announced sixth and final season.
The show's official account confirmed the good news last month on Twitter, writing: "The devil made us do it.
"Lucifer will return for a sixth and final season. like, FINAL final."
Season five had previously been billed as the show's final season, but that's no longer the case after Lucifer fans clamoured for another outing.
The show originally aired on Fox, but it was cancelled after just three seasons. That's when Netflix swooped it up and took it off Fox's hands, which came as great news to loyal Lucifer heads.

Executive producers Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson said: "We are so incredibly thankful to Netflix for resurrecting our show last season, and now letting us finish the story of Lucifer on our terms.
"Most importantly, we want to thank the fans for their incredible passion and support. The best is yet to come!"
