Lucifer season 6’s opening image shows the titular Devil posing with a DeLorean. After hearing that star Tom Ellis had signed a new deal to return for another batch of episodes, fans were pleasantly pleased to learn that the Fox-turned-Netflix series will be ending after season 5.
Season 6 of Lucifer will be the final season, and when it will premiere on Netflix is anyone’s guess. The season’s filming finished early this year, and based on the cast and crew’s reactions, Lucifer will have an emotional conclusion.
Season 5 of Lucifer premiered on Netflix at the end of May, and it offered several series-altering surprises. In addition to the tragic loss of Dan Espinoza (Kevin Alejandro), Lucifer received a significant advancement from his father (Dennis Haysbert).
The Devil had been formally installed as the new God by the end of Lucifer season 5, part 2. The final ten episodes of the series are intended to deal with this seismic shift, which will undoubtedly affect Lucifer’s relationship with Chloe Decker (Lauren German).
On Thursday, Ellis surprised fans by sharing the first image from Lucifer season 6 in a devilishly delightful way. Lucifer, as always immaculately dressed, stands alongside a DeLorean in a behind-the-scenes photo. There’s no news yet on whether or not this car can go across time. “Good things are on the road,” Ellis wrote as a caption. You can see the post down below.
Season 6 of Lucifer is unlikely to air very soon, given that season 5 ended only two months ago. Netflix will very certainly want to build up to Lucifer’s final season and give it a meaningful send-off, but broadcasting the final season so soon to the previous one won’t work.
The series might resume as early as the end of this year, but early 2022 is also a possibility. As the wait for Lucifer season 6 continues, hopefully Ellis will share more behind-the-scenes looks at what’s to come.
