The fifth season of the fan-favorite series Lucifer finally makes its way to both DVD and Blu-Ray on May 31, 2022.

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Lucifer: The Complete Fifth Season DVD that I reviewed in this blog post. The opinions I share are my own.

Lucifer, the live-action series based on the DC comics series, has had quite the journey during its run. The show initially premiered on Fox before being rescued from cancellation (after season 3) by Netflix due to a passionate fan campaign. In total, the series ran for six seasons (3 more seasons on Netflix) and gained an even bigger following after its move to the streaming juggernaut. And now, for the first time, Lucifer’s fifth season will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray starting on May 31, 2022.

The show centers on the devil, Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis) as he solves crimes with his partner Chloe Decker (Lauren German). Season five features more enticing cases for Lucifer and Chloe, including a musical episode, as the battles between the humans, angels, demons, and even God intensifies.  

The DVD features all sixteen episodes of the season on four discs, and the menu is easy to navigate. There is an option to include English subtitles on episodes, but there are no other language options in either audio or subtitles. As is standard with DVD and Blu-Ray releases, viewers can choose to watch all the disc’s episodes with the press of one button, or to pick and choose episodes from the separate menu.

A selection of the episodes, “It Never Ends Well for The Chicken,” “BlueBallz,” and “Daniel Espinoza: Naked and Afraid,” come with a small number of deleted scenes. The scenes can be viewed from an option on the main menu or via a scissor icon prompt next to the corresponding episode in the episode selection menu, which is an intuitive alternative that helps with navigation.

Many of the scenes are brief but add interesting character moments to their respective episodes. The highlights of these scenes include one of Lucifer attempting to apologize to Chloe through a closed door, a scene between Chloe and Linda (Rachael Harris) at a club, and an additional moment between Mazikeen (Lesley Ann-Brandt) and Dan (Kevin Alejandro). It’s easy to see how some of these scenes ended up on the cutting room floor, but it’s surprising that only three episodes out of the sixteen come with extra scenes.

An addition that fans will enjoy is the gag reel on the final disc. The gag reel is substantial, running nearly four minutes long, and features a couple of funny moments throughout the duration. Throughout the typical verbal and physical flubs, it’s easy to see that the cast enjoys working together and can easily joke around with each other. It would have been great to see more behind-the-scenes features in the package, but I think that Lucifer viewers will still enjoy seeing the deleted scenes and gag reel that are included regardless.

Take note; the fifth season of Lucifer will also be released on Blu-Ray on May 31, 2022, the same day as the DVD release. There is no current release date for the Blu-Ray and DVD editions of the show’s sixth and final season but it will likely come out eventually to complete the entire set.

Are you a Lucifer fan? Will you be picking up the home release?
