Recently, in an interview with Wordballon, Joe Henderson, co-showrunner of Lucifer, of Netflix, spoke about the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic on the filming of the end of the series.
The works were closed in the last week. However, some significant changes had to occur on the set of recordings. According to Henderson, the plot of the final episodes underwent changes so that they could adapt to the restrictive measures that prevent the spread of covid-19.
“The cast and crew were aware of what they were getting into and already knew the story they wanted to tell in this current situation,” he explained. “A large part of this also showed us how we write about our limitations and also how we can build strength from that,” he said during the interview.
Thus, it seems, the final scenes will be focused on more emotions from the main characters, instead of the action that was so awaited by fans. However, Joe Henderson guarantees that the public will be surprised by the outcome of the production.

For now, there are not many details about what creative choices needed to be left out of the series’ scripts. However, Joe Henderson seems to have been satisfied with the work after all and even enthusiastic about the changes.
“It forced us, as writers, to delve deeper into the dynamics between the characters,” he commented. “It also allowed us to show everyone how good our cast is, because it affected them a lot, but it is exactly the same story that we wanted to tell initially ”He concluded.
Lucifer stars Tom Ellis, Lauren German, DB Woodside, Rachael Harris, Kevin Alejandro, Lesley-Ann Brandt and Aimee Garcia.
The second part of season 5 is due to arrive on Netflix on May 28. The end of the series has no release date yet.
