Lucifer making a cameo in the Arrowverse crossover ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths’ kind of broke the internet and fans of both the shows jumped up from joy over the surprise. Earlier when Lucifer star Tom Ellis was asked about his cameo role in COIE, he clearly declined it and lied to everyone so that fans can get surprised in the real moment. It wasn’t just a passing cameo, Lucifer played an important role where he allowed John Constantine, Mia Smoke, and John Diggle to visit the purgatory in order to retrieve Oliver Queen’s soul.

Tom Ellis appeared in third crossover episode which is technically ‘The Flash Season 6 Episode 9’ and now speculations say that Matt Ryan will appear in Lucifer season 5 as they talked about Maze. There are also theories which say that Constantine will help Lucifer to get back on earth in the upcoming season of Lucifer. Here are some of the best theories which explains how John Constantine can have a cameo role in Lucifer season 5.
Lucifer and John Constantine has Crossed Paths Before
Lucifer and John Constantine are not stranger and their paths have crossed before. As per the Crisis episode, Lucifer lives on Earth-666 and when Constantine knocked at his door, asking for help, the devil was not surprised at all. When Constantine asked him for help, Lucifer agreed saying that he owed him for what he did for Maze. It means that Lucifer took help from John to bring Mazikeen on earth and that way, both the characters know each other very well.
Lucifer Season 5 John Constantine Cameo
Lucifer Season 5 theories are now suggesting that actor Matt Ryan will now have a brief appearance as John Constantine in the show. There are two possibilities of Constantine being a part of Lucifer’s final season, we finally get to see the moment where Maze was freed and tagged along Lucifer to earth. For a devil, it is not possible to grant demon passages to earth and hence Lucifer might have asked John for help.
What did Constantine do for Maze? Are we going to see this character in Season 5 while we flush out the full story of Maze? Please say yes! I don't know Constantine at all but there's chemistry here.#CrisisOnInfiniteEarths #Lucifer pic.twitter.com/RNebOK16tP

Also, the biggest mystery about Lucifer season 5 is that how will the titular character played by Tom Ellis get back on earth and it is why Constantine can have more than a cameo role and become a recurring character to join the team.
