Who is Lucifer? Lucifer Morningstar is a fallen angel and the former Lord of Hell, who moves to Los Angeles for a serious lifestyle change. He soon meets Detective Chloe Decker and becomes a consultant for the LAPD, solving murders with his God-given ability to extract secret desires from the humans he meets. At the end of season four, he left Earth to return to hell, where his demons were getting out of hand, but returned when his devious twin Michael attempted to take his place.

When their father, God, decided to retire, Michael attempted to take his place, rallying significant support from their angelic siblings. However, his intentions were not pure and ultimately he was defeated by Lucifer, who ended up scoring the top job. When we're re-introduced to him in season six, he is yet to ascend and appears to be apprehensive about the idea.

Who is Michael? Michael is Lucifer's twin brother, with whom he has always had a rivalry. He comes down to Earth from heaven after Lucifer returns "home" and attempts to take over his life in Los Angeles. However, he is quickly found out and Lucifer severely scars his face to prevent him from pulling such a stunt again. After Michael's campaign to become the new God ends in failure, Lucifer has an opportunity to wipe him from existence but decides to banish him to hell instead.

What else has Tom Ellis been in? Tom Ellis may be known to fans of British comedy as Gary, the handsome waiter in Miranda Hart's self-titled BBC sitcom.

Indeed, their relationship has been a rollercoaster ride filled with will they/won't they moments, but in season six, they are finally committed and working as a real team to resolve the problems they face. Chloe quit her job at the LAPD in preparation to take on a much bigger role – God's official consultant – but now finds herself at a loose end due to Lucifer's hesitation about starting his new role.

However, he too begins to enjoy life in the mortal realm, even fathering a baby with a psychotherapist named Dr Linda Martin.

However, as he has become more distant from her, she has acted increasingly unpredictably – most recently, teaming up with Michael, who promised he could get her a soul. Of course, this was a lie, but an interaction with God made Maze realise that she had naturally developed a soul during her time on Earth, which is why she's far more empathetic than she was when she arrived. She is currently in a heartfelt relationship with Eve.

What else has Lesley Ann-Brandt been in? Brandt broke out on historical drama Spartacus: Blood and Sand, where she played the role of Naevia. She also appeared in the TNT fantasy series The Librarians, which starred X-Men icon Rebecca Romijn.

Eve tracked down Lucifer at Lux in season four and the two of them briefly restarted a romantic relationship but it didn't last. While Eve was attempting to get the attention of Lucifer, Mazikeen developed feelings for her instead, which weren't reciprocated initially. However, after some time away travelling, Eve realised she was always happiest when spending time with Maze and they are now a couple.

Of course, this proved unsuccessful and Lucifer later became obsessed with plotting revenge on his nemesis, ultimately pulling an incredibly elaborate and exhausting prank.

Sadly, later in the season, Dan was killed while investigating a case, leaving Chloe and the gang utterly devastated. There was salt in the wound when it emerged that Dan had not gone to heaven for a blissful afterlife, but instead had been sent to hell as he was not able to get over his guilt over past sins. While no longer among the living, it has been confirmed that Dan will reappear in Lucifer season six.

Ultimately, she vacated the body, moving to an alternate dimension to create her own world but in doing so Richards was granted a second chance at life.

The formerly immoral legal counsel decided to turn over a new leaf, becoming a kinder person hoping to find justice for deserving clients rather than just a pay cheque. She became romantically involved with Dan Espinoza during this time, leaving him utterly distraught when she was murdered by Marcus Pierce (aka Cain) towards the end of season three.
