Executive producer for Netflix’s Lucifer has opened up about the biggest challenges of filming the show’s climactic sex scene in season five.

After years of waiting, the devil Lucifer Morningstar (played by Tom Ellis) and Chloe Decker (Lauren German) finally admitted their feelings for one another, before Lucifer banished himself to Hell.

Returning from his self-imposed exile at the start of season five, Deckerstar were reunited at last and finally decided to share a night (or several) of passion together.

As well as finally giving Lucifer shippers the amorous moments they’ve been waiting for, their love-making actually proved crucial to the plot of the latest instalment.

Not only did it provide the catalyst for the devil regaining his powers of invulnerability around Chloe, Lucifer somehow managed to transfer his mojo when they finally did the deed.

With the pressure mounting to satisfying long-running ‘Lucifans’, producer Mike Costa told AssignmentX about the extensive planning sessions it took to get Deckerstar’s first sex scenes just right.

He revealed during the recent interview that the moment was ‘one of our most discussed scenes’ heading into season five, and for very good reason.

Costa recalled: “One, because of how we want to present that to the audience, and what that will mean. But then also, to make sure the actors are comfortable.”

Co-stars Ellis and German have shared the screen throughout most of the series so far, but they’ve usually kept their clothes on up to this point.

Moreover, after establishing Lucifer as perhaps the greatest lover on the West Coast, fans had high expectations for when the devil and his detective love interest finally got physical.

The producer continued: “Those love scenes, because they are physical, they are not so different from scenes that are full of complicated stunts.

“Because they’re actors that are physically interacting with one another, and you want to make sure that your actors are as safe and comfortable as possible.”

Mike Costa also recalled Ellis and German’s sex scenes were treated with the same level of detail as the show’s most impressive action set pieces.

He explained: “We did not leave it to chance on the day and say, ‘Oh, just go!’ We really worked out what every move was going to be, so that, like I said, [it was treated like] a stunt.

“At any moment, Tom and Lauren knew exactly what was going to happen, who was going to be doing what, where the camera was going to be. It was very carefully choreographed for a lot of different reasons.”

Despite the constant potential for things to get awkward, Lucifer and Chloe’s chemistry translated perfectly to the bedroom and ensured the fifth season was just as romantic as fans were hoping.

In the wake of extensive delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic, some viewers may be concerned about season six, and the second half of season five, won’t be quite so up close and personal.

Thankfully, production has multiple measures in place, including frequent COVID testing, to ensure the cast and crew are safe to interact in close quarters.

However, Los Angeles has warned TV and film productions may not be able to continue for some time after a concerning rise in cases.

It may be some time before Lucifer makes its return, but the writers, cast and crew are still hard at work to ensure the crime-solving devil’s final adventures on Netflix will be well worth the wait.

Lucifer Season 5, Part 1 is available to stream on Netflix.
