In season 5b of ‘Lucifer,’ Dan goes to hell.
Dan Espinoza (Kevin Alejandro) is killed in Lucifer season 5 episode 15 after being pranked and tortured. A hitman hired by Michael shoots the detective three times (Tom Ellis).

The Star of ‘Lucifer’ Gives a Major Update On Season 6
Dan’s death, understandably, has left everyone distraught. After killing the men responsible, Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and Maze (Leslie Ann-Brandt) attend Dan’s tear-filled burial.
What factors went into Dan’s death decision?
After five seasons of seeing Dan endure it all, Lucifer fans were stunned to learn that he had died. However, showrunner Joe Henderson claims that his death was necessary to strengthen the tale.
He told Collider, “Towards the end of Season 5, we really wanted to strike on some of the ramifications.” “A sense that, for all the fun and games, souls are on the line. And for Lucifer to have to face that, one of the things we really wanted to emphasize was the gravity of the situation, the threat it posed. In addition, there is a sense of unfairness, a sensation that something ought to be repaired or changed.”
