Dennis Haysbert set to play God in ‘Lucifer’ Season 5 and we cannot be more excited
The final season of Warner Bros’ show shall pull the curtain on the relationship between God (Dennis Haysbert) and Lucifer Morningstar
After four successful seasons, ‘Lucifer’ will be back with its fifth and final season this year. We have been watching Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis) enjoying his earthly adventures, his emotional struggles and his trials to fix his relationship with his father, or God himself, to be precise. All this while we were wondering if we will actually get to see God, just like we managed to see the Goddess of all creation (Tricia Helfer), through two seasons.
In season 3 when we heard Neil Gaiman’s voiceover as God, we were almost expecting him to appear in the future episodes. But that was not to happen perhaps. However, our prayers have finally been answered and the upcoming season will actually reveal who God is. The final season of ‘Lucifer’ will cast Dennis Haysbert as God and Lucifer’s father. So, who is Dennis Haysbert?
You would have seen him in Fox TV’s ‘24’ as 'David Palmer', portraying a fictional US Senator for almost 81 episodes. '24' might have been Haysbert's shot to fame, given his remarkable performance in the show, but the American actor and voice artist has more to his resume than the crime-drama-thriller. He has also appeared in numerous other television shows like ‘Now and Again’, ‘The Unit’, ‘Blue Bloods’, ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ among many more. In his movie appearances, the roles he played in ‘Dark Towe’, ‘Jarhead’ franchise, and ‘Sin City’, are worth mentioning. Haysbert’s appearance in ‘Lucifer’ Season 5 will be the debut of God in the show.
As season four ended with Lucifer going back to hell, it opened up multiple possibilities for interaction between him and his father. For four long seasons, we have only heard Lucifer’s side of the story, comprising his strained relationship with his father and now, in the final season, his father’s take on his son will also be revealed. There’s a chance that there will be a lot to say and hear between God and his favorite son, Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) and the wayward son, Lucifer. Dennis Haysbert and D.B. Woodside have earlier appeared together in ‘24’.
So, buckle up, as ‘Lucifer’ comes back with another dramatic, eventful, and action-driven season but of course with the opportunity to see God, literally! Stay tuned as we bring you more updates on the upcoming season.
‘Lucifer’ Season 5 shall be back on Netflix in May 2020.
