While we love a good long weekend, the past few days were extra special because Netflix dropped a handful of shows and movies, including Dog Gone Trouble, The Kominsky Method and The Parisian Agency: Exclusive Properties. And while we used our holiday trying to watch everything we could, we spent the majority of our Memorial Day watching Lucifer.

The streaming platform dropped season five, part two on Friday, and the series immediately shot up to the number one spot on Netflix’s most popular shows list.

Based on characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg, the series follows Lucifer (Tom Ellis), AKA the devil, who has become dissatisfied with his life in hell and decides to pick up and move to California. In the new installment, God himself comes to Earth. Per Netflix, “Secrets will be revealed, heroic sacrifices will be made, and the world will never be the same.” Watch the full trailer below.

After just a few days on the service, the popular show (which originally premiered on Fox and was later picked up by Netflix for season three) has become one of the streaming service's biggest original series to date. In fact, it even has an impressive score of 86 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

In addition to Ellis, the series also stars Lauren German (A Walk to Remember), Lesley-Ann Brandt (Gotham), D.B. Woodside (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Scarlett Estevez (Daddy’s Home), Tricia Helfer (Walk All Over Me) and Kevin Alejandro (True Blood).

Is it too soon to ask for details on season six?
