"Yep... Aug 21! The rumors are true, my darling demons. #LuciferSeason5 is dropping 8.21.20. Until then, enjoy these 66.6 seconds of deliciousness," tweeted co-showrunner Ildy Modrovich.

The promo video for "Lucifer" Season 5 may not contain fresh scenes from the upcoming season. However, it did give a tease at an intimate Deckerstar moment near the end of the video. The moment fans have been waiting for may finally happen in the installment. Lucifer and Chloe Decker will have a steamy encounter and maybe this time, it is not just from the detective's dream.
