Fittingly enough, Lucifer has gone to hell and back again during its extended television-to-streaming run throughout this past half-decade. Initially, the DC comic book adaptation made a modest debut on Fox with mixed reviews but a growing fanbase. When the show was cancelled after three seasons, the outcry of support from fans ultimately inspired Netflix to pick it up for three additional MA-rated installments — including its sixth and final season, which was (surprisingly) announced back in June.
While fans are still waiting for the second half of Season 5, this extended delay is giving newcomers a chance to catch-up with the buzzy series. If you're falling for the show and wondering where you've previously seen its devilishly talented cast, led by Tom Ellis, then we're here to help. Here's where you might have seen the Lucifer cast before.
