‘Lucifer‘ is a supernatural drama series about Lucifer Morningstar, the Devil and former Lord of Hell, who now resides on Earth and helps the LAPD solve complex cases. Tom Kapinos developed the series for television based on the DC Comics character of the same name. The series is a delightful cross between the superhero and procedural genres and has continually charted new highs of popularity. It first premiered on January 25, 2016, on Fox but was canceled after three seasons.
A vigorous and passionate fan campaign prompted Netflix to pick up the show for season 4 and onwards. After a perilous journey, Lucifer finds himself in a rather overwhelming and unprecedented situation at the end of season five. If you are an ardent fan of the show, you must be eagerly waiting to watch the continuation of Lucifer’s enthralling story. In that case, here’s everything you need to know ahead of ‘Lucifer’ season 6.
Lucifer Season 6 Release Date
Initially, the fifth season of ‘Lucifer’ was expected to be the show’s last. However, thanks to the show’s popularity, it was renewed for a sixth season by Netflix on June 23, 2020. Sadly, the streaming service also announced that the show would be taking viewers on one last ride through hell and conclude with season 6. The release date of the final season became a regularly discussed topic among fans. As the famous saying goes… “Talk of the devil, and he is sure to appear,” the network didn’t take long to announce the release date of the final season. ‘Lucifer’ season 6 will release on September 10, 2021, at 3 pm ET on Netflix.
The sixth and final season consists of 10 episodes, which will drop on the streaming giant on the same day. The final season began filming in October 2020 and wrapped on March 29, 2021. On the final day of filming, the show was trending on Twitter, with fans taking to the platform to express their affection and gratitude for ‘Lucifer’ with #ThankYouLucifer.
Lucifer Season 6 Cast: Who is in it?
For the sixth season, Tom Ellis will be reprising his role as the devilishly charming Lucifer Morningstar, alongside Lauren German’s headstrong Detective Chloe Decker. Ellis is also likely to appear as Lucifer’s brother, Michael, after portraying the character in season 5. D.B. Woodside (Amenadiel), Kevin Alejandro (Daniel Espinoza), Rachael Harris (Dr. Linda Martin), Aimee Garcia (Ella Lopez), Lesley-Ann Brandt (Mazikeen/Maze), Inbar Lavi (Eve), and Scarlett Estevez (Trixie Espinoza) will also be returning to the reprise their respective roles.
Other familiar faces who could potentially return include Tricia Helfer as Mum/ Goddess, Dennis Haysbert as Dad/ God, and Scott Porter as Carol Corbett. More actors from previous seasons could make guest appearances to help wrap up the story. Among new additions, ‘Deadpool’-fame actress Brianna Hildebrand and ‘Alias’ alum Merrin Dungey will be playing Rory, an angel, and Sonya, a rookie cop, respectively. Additionally, actor Matt Corboy who essays the role of Officer Diggs, a traffic cop seen in the show’s pilot, will be reprising his role.
Lucifer Season 6 Plot: What is it About?
In ‘Lucifer’ season 5 (Part 2) finale, Lucifer and Michael have an epic confrontation that results in Chloe’s death. However, Lucifer is able to revive her and also confesses his true feelings for Chloe. The season ends with Lucifer defeating Michael and becoming the new God.
Season 6 is likely to deal with Lucifer’s new responsibilities as God and how his erratic nature conflicts with them. Lucifer could prove to be incompetent in his new role, causing his father to return as God. We might also learn whether or not Chloe and Lucifer are in a relationship or something has sparked a conflict between the two. Maze and Eve are likely to face some serious challenges in their relationship with the introduction of a new character. This mystery character could turn out to be Adam, who has been mentioned in previous seasons but is yet to appear on-screen.
Amenadiel is most likely going to become an LAPD officer. This will allow for some exciting new cases for Lucifer to solve and for the show to make some poignant statements about the current real-world socio-political climate. The makers have promised a satisfying and tear-jerking series finale, so we recommend you keep a tissue box handy while binge-watching the final season.
