Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Lucifer stars DB Woodside and Aimee Garcia revealed more details about Michael.
Woodside said: “Michael has an agenda. And, it’s gonna take us a little while before we realize what his agenda really is.
“But his agenda is extremely dangerous. And it’s gonna take the entire family to disrupt Michael’s agenda.”
Garcia described the moment the cast found out Tom Ellis would be playing Michael and Lucifer in the fifth series as “jaw-dropping! Silence! Could hear a pin drop, gasping.”
She added: “It’s one of those things where you always expect a big bad to come in from an outside source, a new guest star, but to have our headliner also be the big bad?! …
“It’s a big mind F*** but it’s also true to the biblical story.
“It’s such a brilliant move that no one saw coming, including ourselves.”
In the Book of Revelation in the New Testament, a war in Heaven is described between the angels, led by the Archangel Michael against those led by the Devil, also known as Satan or Lucifer.

In the end, the devil is defeated by God’s angels and thrown down to Earth.
In Lucifer, Michael is based on the DC Comics character Michael Demiurgos, created by Neil Gaiman and John Bolton.
Michael is based on the biblical figure, the archangel Michael, from the Book of Revelation.
During the war in Heaven, Michael successfully defeated Satan and it is this version of Michael which appears in the Lucifer comics.
In the comics, when Lucifer Morningstar began his revolt in heaven, he was outnumbered and defeated by his brother the Archangel Michael who used the Demiurgos (God’s power) to destroy his angelic forces.
However, after the attack, a fallen angel named Sandalphon pierced his spear into Michael’s back and took him captive into a “pocket reality.”
Lucifer saved his brother and released the demiurgic power inside Michael, creating his very own cosmos.
