Lucifer Season 6: Everything We Know About The Netflix Series So Far

Lucifer fans were overjoyed recently to learn that the Netflix show is returning for an extra, sixth season.

The Tom Ellis-fronted show was originally only going to run for five instalments, but after fans started a literal petition asking for its return, miracles happened and the TV gods decided to give us a final few episodes.

Praise the devil!

But what's in store for Lucifer season 6, when is it being released and who will be starring alongside Ellis? Here's everything we know...

When was Lucifer season 6 announced?

Lucifer season 6 was announced in June by the show's bosses.

In a tweet, Netflix teased: "The devil made us do it. #Lucifer will return for a sixth and final season. Like, FINAL final."

Naturally, much excitement ensued, alongside some tears about the fact it really would be over after that.

When will Lucifer season 6 be released?

The final season of Lucifer started filming right off the back of season 5, meaning there was no rest for the crew.

In October co-showrunner Joe Henderson tweeted: "Today is our first day of shooting #Lucifer season 6!

"So happy we've finished up season 5, and we will be working our buns off to get it finished and to Netflix! Thanks to our incredible cast and crew for working hard and safe and delivering a kickass finale!!"

We're likely to have to wait a while for the sixth instalment to air, though.

After all, season 5 part 2 is still yet to land on screens, after delays due to the pandemic.

That's expected to be arriving in April, or maybe even this month all going well (watch this space). So, for this reason, it's likely season 6 won't be hitting screens until the end of this year at best.

We'll let you know when we know more.

What is Lucifer and what is it about?

In case you needed a reminder, the series follows Tom Ellis as Lucifer Morningstar (aka the devil) as he moves from the depths of hell to upmarket Los Angeles, in the hope of a change of scene.

Lucifer starts off running a nightclub before eventually becoming an LAPD consultant.

The first half of season five was an absolute hit with Lucifans - it even shattered the previous record held by The Umbrella Academy in becoming the biggest TV opening debut on Netflix since the introduction of the top 10 feature.

What is the plot of season 5 part 2?

The final few episodes of season 5 part 1 built up some tense storylines after Lucifer was shot and his love interest Chloe Decker (played by Lauren German) was kidnapped.

This all happened as Ella Lopez (Aimee Garcia) found out her new boyfriend was not all he seemed. Well actually, he was really a serial killer....and we thought we had bad taste in men.

Anyway, all of this led up to an extremely intense final scene - even God appeared - finishing with a cliffhanger that has left fans begging for more, as Lucifer seemingly went missing after a fight with his twin brother Michael.

Of course, we can expect some resolution to that, and seeing as Ellis is back, we know for sure he's not going to be lost for long. But what else is happening in the season is a little more unclear.

Discussing season 5 part 2, Lauren German has teased a moment fans have to look forward to, revealing there will be a musical episode.

"Lucifer is in a difficult place, and Tom goes into song... and I was in my trailer just crying at how beautiful the moment is and just knowing the moment in the story, it brought tears to my eye," she told Entertainment Tonight.

"It is so absolutely touching and gorgeous... You can feel what he is feeling, through the singing, and it's beautiful."

Meanwhile, Joe Henderson has also hinted at potential drama in store for Chloe Decker and Lucifer Morningstar.

Speaking during Baltimore Comic-Con, he said: "We are the biggest Deckerstar shippers next to you guys.

"But we know the fun of it is just because a couple is together doesn't mean there won't be roadblocks.

"But at the same time, we respect the fact the amount of emotional investment that our fans have put into the characters is because we put them in there.

"So much of the story going forward is the story of love but the story of love is... so often it is a story of challenges.

"And I think what I love about it is that challenges make a romance feel all the more earned."

We also have the episode names for the new season - make of them what you will...

  • Episode 9: Family Dinner
  • Episode 10: Resting Devil Face
  • Episode 11: Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam
  • Episode 12: Daniel Espinoza: Naked and Afraid
  • Episode 13: A Little Harmless Stalking
  • Episode 14: Nothing Lasts Forever
  • Episode 15: Is This Really How It's Going To End?!
  • Episode 16: A Chance At a Happy Ending

Given its imminent air date we'll be finding out further details of the plot soon enough!

Seeing as there are still question marks about Lucifer season 5 part 2's plot, guessing what is going to happen in season 6 is a little tricky.

What we do know, though, is the show's writer, Ildy Modrovich has promised "one giant story" will play out within season six, adding: "that just needed to be told".

According to TV Line, there will be 10 episodes in the final series.

In an interview with ET, Modrovich teased some important themes would be covered, too. She said: "When we got back to the (writers') room, we started looking at the fact that we're a cop show and in what ways have we contributed or not addressed the systemic issues of the police department.

"And we decided we wanted to speak to it. So we're actually doing a story that speaks directly to it, and we're super excited about it."

Executive producer, Mike Costa, has also spoken about how season 5 was needed to wrap up a "narrative problem".

"As Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich have said previously in interviews, and this really is true, we realised that we were kind of rushing the end of the show," he said.

"Ildy in particular...was almost relieved and thought, 'Well, good, because I am cramming way too much into these four or five scenes. There is really stuff that should be explored better.'"

We'll have to see what this will entail.

Has the cast of Lucifer season 6 been confirmed?

The cast of season 6 is still TBC, seeing as we don't know if anything big happens in season 5 part 2, which affects our key characters.

What we do know is that Tom Ellis is returning, and it's likely we'll also be seeing Lauren German as Chloe, Lesley-Ann Brandt as Maze, Rachael Harris as Linda Martin, Aimee Garcia as Ella Lopez, Kevin Alejandro as Dan Espinoza, Scarlett Estevez as Trixie Espinoza and DB Woodside as Amenadiel, all being well.

Show runner Henderson has also teased that he might be making another cameo in future, so keep your eyes peeled for that in season 6.

Is there a trailer for Lucifer season 6?

In short, no. Let's get season 5 part 2 out the way first. Here's the short teaser for that:

Loading…

Is there *any* chance of a Lucifer season 7?

Unless we have a series without the main character, the answer is sadly, no.

Speaking on the series coming to an end, the actor conclusively said: "Six seasons of the show is a real achievement.

"It's been a huge emotional journey and I don't think I want to do any more. I know I don't want to do anymore.

"Mainly because I wanna know that we're ending and because I've had such a great time. I think it's only fitting that we have a proper ending to the show."
