LUCIFER’S Tom Ellis does his best rendition of Queen’s Another One Bites the Dust in a first look at the show’s musical episode.
The drama’s season 5B’s musical episode was unveiled at this weekend’s DC FanDome panel.
The teaser clip shows the Lord of Hell, Chloe (Lauren German) and Dan (Kevin Alejandro) belt out the famous tune while examining a dead body on a football field, before the same corpse miraculously stood up joined the others dancing.
Co-showrunners Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson revealed they came up with the brilliant idea over a long period.
“It’s been a slow burn. In my heart, it began to blossom after the Vegas episode [in season two], when Tom and Aimee did ‘Luck Be a Lady,'” noted the former, who wrote the episode.
“I remember coming into rehearsal for that and crying because it was such a dream come true and it was so exciting to me. If there’s any show you could do a musical on, it’s this one.”

Henderson also shared: “To me, in these musical episodes you’ve got to have the story-based reason that everyone breaks into song.
“Our show has people breaking into song all the time, but it’s because they’re at Lux or reasons like that.
“So, one of the challenges was, ‘What element could we introduce that is organic to our story that allows all of our cast to burst into song?’ And when we found that… that’s when it came together.”
“‘Another One Bites the Dust’ is a death anthem if there ever was one, so yeah…”
It was reported recently that Lucifer’s final season will have fewer episodes as Netflix struggles to get the cast to set.
The streaming giant made the decision to chop the number of episodes in the sixth season down to ten from 16.
Filming for the second half of season five will kick off later this month as production was put on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Lucifer’s cast and crew will then immediately begin shooting for season six, albeit with fewer episodes to work on, according to TV Line.
Lucifer season four and 5A are available to watch now on Netflix, with season 5B coming soon.
