Lucifer Is Doing A Musical Episode (And It’s Not The 40s Noir One)

Music has been an intrinsic part of Lucifer since the get-go. Seriously, the soundtrack for the series is one of the best in television and that’s on top of the stellar musical performances from star Tom Ellis (and others as the need arises).

Now the fifth and final season of Lucifer has already touted a “musical” episode, which will be set in the 40s. According to Entertainment Weekly, however, this is not the true musical episode of Lucifer‘s final season. The honor instead falls to “Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam”, which will be the 10th episode of season five.

(We’re guessing Lucifer’s saying that line.)

“Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam” will feature multiple musical numbers over the course of the hour. The 40s noir episode, which is the fourth episode of the season and titled “It Never Ends Well For The Chicken”, will only feature two musical numbers.

Showrunners Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson have been dying to do a Lucifer musical episode for a long time. They wanted to wait until the right story came along to do so.

Modrovich said to EW, “We wanted to have a real grounded story reason why they’re singing 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.

Just what’s going on with the Devil feeling the sound of music is being kept close to the chest. Could this have anything to do with the casting of God?

Lucifer season five will be split into two eight-episode parts. The first half will premiere in 2020.
