‘Lucifer’ Officially Renewed For 6th & Final (Really This Time) Season On Netflix
‘Lucifer‘ will return for a 6th and final season Netflix has announced… They did say that about the 5th Season as well, but they have added “…we mean *final* this time.”
‘Lucifer’ follows Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis), the original fallen angel, who became dissatisfied with his life in hell. Retiring to L.A., he inadvertently teams up with an LAPD detective (Lauren German) to help punish criminals. Joining him on Earth is his angelic brother Amenadiel (D. B. Woodside), and his former head torturer demon turned bounty hunter Mazikeen (Lesley-Ann Brandt). It was announced in January that ’24’ star Dennis Haysbert would be joining the show in Season 5, which premieres in August, to play Lucifer & Amenadiel’s father… aka God.
WARNING – SEASON 4 SPOILERS BELOW…
Season 4 began with Lucifer reeling from the aftermath of Chloe seeing his devil face. But his attention was soon grabbed by the return of someone from his past… Eve (Inbar Lavi – ‘The Last Ship’), the original sinner herself. The season ends as demons start to run amok on Earth, trying to kidnap Amenadieland Linda’s (Rachael Harris) baby. It becomes clear something has to be done to keep them in line, so Lucifer takes up his seat once again as the King of Hell…
The broadcast story of ‘Lucifer’ has taken fans to hell and back! The show was axed by Fox after 3 Seasons during the May 2018 Upfront bloodbath. Fans pushed the series to be the top trending topic worldwide on Twitter, leading to Netflix saving it for a 4th Season. It was then renewed in June 2019 for a 10-episode 5th and “final” season. However, a month later in July 2019, Netflix announced they had expanded the order to 16-episodes, which would be split into two halves of 8-episodes. Then in February 2020, rumours started to appear that the streaming service was in talks about a possible 6th Season. However, things stalled as Tom Ellis looked to renegotiate his contract… the devil is in the details after all… In May 2020, it was revealed the contract had been sorted, and Tom was on board for a potential new season, which brings us to today’s announcement!
Whilst Season 6 will be the last, we still have a while before we get there. Season 5 will consist of sixteen episodes, split into two blocks of eight, part one of which premieres this August. That likely means part two will air in 2021, followed by the 6th Season. We don’t yet know how many episodes that will be.
