Good news, Rob Benedict fans. Rob will be making an appearance in Season 5 of Netflix’s Lucifer, which is set to premiere on August 21. However, Rob’s role is set to be part of the season’s second half, “5B”, which will air at a later, undisclosed date.
TVLine broke the news, and states that Rob will play “Vincent Le Mec, a hardened French Mercenary whose violent work brings him to Los Angeles — and into the crosshairs of Lucifer, Chloe and the LAPD.”
Rob told Nerds and Beyond exclusively that, “I’m super excited to work with my friends. I play another questionable character which is always fun to sink my teeth into…”
Rob’s BFF, Richard Speight, Jr., directed a few episodes of Season 5 so it will be fun to see if Rob appears in another Speight-directed episode of television.
We’re so excited about this!
