Netflix seems enchanted with the powers of Lucifer and they can’t get enough of his devilish charms. Lucifer is back for season 6 even after Netflix promised the show would end with season 5 just last year.
In a tweet on June 23, the official handle of Lucifer announced a season 6 return in what was termed a “FINAL final” season.
More on that later in the post. First things first.
When is season 5 out?
Watch the release date announcement video here:
Season five of Lucifer concluded filming when production shut down in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. It was announced on Monday that part one of season five would premiere on August 21 this year.
Story of the FINAL Season
The series is based on a DC Comics title and stars Tim Ellis as the devil himself. When Lucifer grows bored with reigning over hell, he abandons his post to move to Los Angeles, where he runs a nightclub and becomes a consultant to the LAPD.
It may be noted that Netflix practically lifted the show from Fox Studios after the latter cancelled it at the end of 2017-2018 season. The show had run for 3 seasons and a fourth season was ordered by Netflix immediately, which premiered in May 2019.
In June 2019, the fifth season was announced and was set to be the series finale.
Until now, we all thought season five would be the last one but Netflix has surprised us by renewing it for another. In February this year, co-showrunners Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson signed fresh deals to remain with the series.
The Lucifer himself, star Tom Ellis, who plays the title character, recently re-upped as well.
The rest of the regular cast — Lauren German, D.B. Woodside, Kevin Alejandro, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Aimee Garcia, Inbar Levi and Graham McTavish — is also set to return.
