The Lucifer Season 6 release date has finally been confirmed, with Netflix revealing the hit show will return on 10 September 2021. While it might not be the August mark that fans were hoping for, the wait for the final Lucifer season does appear to be shorter than first expected, and that’s huge news.
On Saturday, Lucifer star Tom Ellis joined showrunners Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson for a special [email protected] panel hosted by The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina star Luke Cook. Providing rare insight into the second half of season 5, the panel revealed the intimate workings of the series along with some unexpected news of the final season. The September Lucifer season 6 release date comes less than five months after season 5B arrived on May 28.
Lucifer Season 6 Release Date
As confirmed by Netflix during the Lucifer [email protected] panel, the sixth and final season of Lucifer will debut on September 10, 2021. Showrunner Joe Henderson had previously suggested that the wait between seasons would be shorter than normal, however, no one expected it to come this soon. To follow up the announcement, Netflix also released a teaser trailer for the final season, giving fans a rare look at Lucifer‘s last night in LA.
While there isn’t a lot known about the plot of the final instalment, that hasn’t stopped rumours from circulating online. In an interview with Whats On Netflix, Chris Rafferty confirmed that Chloe will find out a lot more about Lucifer’s past sacrifices.
“There’s never been a transition of God’s power to a new God before. In the Season 5 finale, you see a lot of confusion amongst all the angels as to how exactly it all works – no one really knows,” Rafferty said. “So our characters still have a few things to figure out, including getting to the truth of what it is they truly desire.”
Is Lucifer Season 6 the Final Season of Lucifer?
As expected, Lucifer season 6 will be the final instalment of the hit show. Showrunners Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson, along with star Tom Ellis confirmed that there were no plans for a seventh season, with the September drop set to bring a fitting conclusion to the iconic series.
Important to note is that Lucifer has already gone on longer than expected. Netflix had previously planned to end the show after season 5, which is why the instalment was split into two parts, however, the character arc of the devilish detective was deemed too big to ignore. At the time, fans were concerned that adding another season may change the way the show was crafted, but Henderson revealed all had been accounted for.
“It will remain exactly the same as we had planned and it was really very, very important to us,” he said. “When the idea for season 6 came up, Ildy (Modrovich, the co-showrunner) and I said to Netflix, ‘if we do this and we find the right story, the thing we don’t want to do is to undo everything we have done ‘. Once you see Season 5B you will understand how A and B are actually one big season. How it all relates … The things that happen in the Season 5 premiere fit in completely with the ending.”
