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

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

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, and falling for human, Ella Lopez (Aimee Garcia).

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.

Without retelling the whole of the fifth instalment, you'll remember that it ended with Lucifer becoming the next God, following on from his father (Dennis Haysbert).

What happens in Lucifer season 6?

According to TV Line, there will be 10 episodes in the final series In the sixth season, we'll follow Lucifer as God, and see where his new title takes him and his loved ones on earth.

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."

To be more specific, the scenes will have a Black Lives Matter theme, as we follow Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) grappling with a decision to join the police force.

And that's not all - ET has announced we're going to see a lot more of Lucifer and Chloe together.

While much of the season is under wraps, the show's writer, Ildy Modrovich has promised "one giant story" will play out within season 6, adding: "that just needed to be told".

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.'"

As for what else we can expect? Well, the finale did leave us with some questions, such as, is Chloe immortal? And how will their relationship fare now that he's God?!

We'll have to see what this will entail.

Has the cast of Lucifer season 6 been confirmed?

The cast of season 6 includes Tom Ellis as Lucifer (duh), and Lauren German as Chloe.

D.B. Woodside will also star as Amenadiel, Rachael Harris as Dr. Linda Martin), Lesley-Ann Brandt as Mazikeen, Inbar Lavi as Eve, Aimee Garcia as Ella Lopez and, Kevin Alejandro as Dan Espinoza (yep, despite the fact he's dead!)

If you can't come back to life in Lucifer, really, when can you?!

"[The showrunners] found a gentle way to bring me back," he told TV Line. "Not in the way people are going to expect him to come back [...] but I got to be there for the end in some capacity."

Newbies Brianna Hildebrand (Deadpool) and Merrin Dungey (Alias) will also be joining season 6, with the former playing Lucifer's meddlesome sister, Rory, and the latter appearing as Sonya, a copper who crosses paths with Amenadiel.

Is there a trailer for Lucifer season 6?

There sure is - catch it below:

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, Tom 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."
