The final season will also see Dennis Haysbert playing God and there is also the much-talked-about demonic musical episode.
The season finale of Tom Elli starer Lucifer has a surprise announcement. It will mark the return of Inbar Lavi who is set to reprise her role as Eve. Confirming the news, showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich told Entertainment Weekly, in a statement, "We are so excited to have Inbar back! Last we saw her, Eve broke Maze’s heart. Soooo… a reunion between our favorite demon and the original sinner should go smoothly, right?" Eve first appeared in season 4, where she tried to reconnect with Lucifer, her ex-boyfriend, but ended up being romantically involved with Maze (played by Lesley-Ann Brandt). She, however, left on a journey of self-discovery leaving Maze hanging.
Season 5 will pick up from where it left off. Maze and Chloe have each other as they are both going through similar heartbreaks. Brandt told the website back in October said that her and Lavi's character "are in mourning in a way," while adding, "I think they are leaning into each other. Maze is of course mourning Eve, and definitely Lucifer going back without her; Chloe’s lost her love. They’re kind of holding onto each other as girlfriends do." Lauren German who plays Chloe said, "We’re both heartbroken together because I’m missing Lucifer and she doesn’t really admit it but Maze is heartbroken from Eve leaving. She’s trying to forget about that as well, so we are going through a work/party phase together (in) episode 1."

"We wanted to have a real grounded story reason why they’re signing and dancing, and not just, ‘Oh, this is going to be the one where everybody sings and dance,' It’s been a little game of Tetris (planning the episode) but it’s super fun. It’s going to be amazing. It’s going to be just such a bucket list thing for me," said Modrovich said. According to ComicBook.com, the final season will be divided into two equal parts and will release this year.

When Ellis was asked about the musical episode of the final season, he said, "I can't tease too much! I would say on this episode, we take a trip down memory lane with Lucifer. We tell a story that answers the question a lot of fans have been asking actually. It's always fun to film the music stuff, you know? It's been a really nice element of the show that came in season one and [we've] sort of run with it since. But the nice thing is it's not just Lucifer who sings these days."
