Lucifer’s co-showrunner Joe Henderson just confirmed that he will appear in a future episode of the hit Netflix series. The news, which was revealed by Henderson himself, happened during a recent exchange between him and a fan on Twitter. His response met a lot of positive reactions from followers, who are equally excited with the upcoming surprise cameo appearance.
Back in season 4, the series showrunner Idly Modrovich made a surprise appearance which delighted many fans. In the episode ‘Somebody’s Been Reading Dante’s Inferno,’ Modrovich had a humorous exchange with angel Amenadiel (played by D.B. Woodside). Many followers were then wondering if Henderson would eventually turn up somewhere in the series, just like his colleague did.
However, in the first half of season 5, neither of the head writers appeared. Instead, British personality Sharon Osbourne made a bizarre cameo during an interrogation montage. The show posted a clip of her appearance on Twitter remarking, “this is the cameo of the year j[u]st saying.”
One eager fan then responded to the tweet saying, “I want @Henderson_Joe to have a cameo, like @Ildymojo did in S4!” Henderson teasingly replied, “Oh, it’s going to happen”, which prompted overwhelming approval from avid followers of the show.
With the second half of season 5 just around the corner, Henderson could pop up somewhere in the next eight episodes.
What else do we know about Lucifer Season 5B and 6?
Filming is also underway for Lucifer’s sixth and final instalment after delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic. This means that there are still 16 episodes which could feature the series co-showrunner’s guest appearance. Whether it’ll be in season 5’s part 2 or sixth and last season, we will certainly keep an eye out.
Speaking of season 6, Modrovich confirmed last October 29 that writing for the final batch of episodes has been completed. She shared the news on her personal Twitter account, posting a picture of a writers’ room Zoom call.
“Last day in the Lucifer Writer’s Room. These people inspire me beyond words. How is it that a heart can feel so full and yet be breaking at the same time? #ifuckinglovethemsomuch #imnotcryingyourecrying,” she captions her tweet.
After confirming that production for season 5B officially had wrapped, Henderson then teased fans saying “it is so d*mn amazing.”
As filming still continues for the show, it remains unknown when season 5 part 2 and 6 will eventually be released. While no official announcement confirms when both are hitting Netflix, ‘Lucifans’ are hoping for an early 2021 midseason premiere.
Lucifer season 5 part 1 is currently available to stream on Netflix.
