It’s early days for Lucifer season six. Season five part one is due out on August 21st, 2020, and part two is probably not due until at least early to mid-2021. With that said, we can cover what we do know about season six so far, including who’s going to be involved with the sixth and final season, and recap the long road to seasons six renewal.
In case you haven’t already, check out our Lucifer season five preview which we think is the biggest and best on the internet with a full timeline of what happened in development for that show and all the new guests and storylines we can expect. With season five part one now on Netflix, our attentions turn to part two which is due to begin filming at the end of September 2020.
Here’s the rundown of everything we know about season six of Lucifer so far:
Lucifer season six Netflix renewal status
Official renewal status: Renewed
Originally, of course, season six6 of Lucifer was never going to happen.
Netflix’s revival of the series from season four onwards was meant to end with season five. That’s partly why the show was split into two halves and given an extended season.
However, fans prevailed and once again got the show renewed.
When Netflix gave season five the final season order, naturally fans weren’t happy that Netflix regave life to Lucifer but to only take it away two seasons later. It led to your usual campaigns such as petitions (with the best performing petition securing over 100K signatures).
Rumors, however, began in early 2020 that Netflix had reversed its decision and began seeking to renew season six but only once it had got everyone signed on.
It was late February 2020 when Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson had signed on for a further sixth season.
The first we heard of Netflix reversing course was back in February 2020 when TVLine had learned that Netflix was back in talks with Warner Brothers Television to extend the show.
On June 23rd, 2020 – we officially got word that season six was set to happen but that it would be the “final FINAL” season.
Who’s involved with Lucifer season six?
As we mentioned above, Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson who serve as the co-showrunners are both onboard to see Lucifer season six through.
It wasn’t until early July until DB Woodside confirmed he’d be returning a Tweet saying:
Happy to announce that I will be returning to Lucifer for season 6. Additionally, I will be directing an episode for our final season. ❤️This is a beautiful cast. We stand by each other. We fight for one another.
— DB Woodside (@dbwofficial) July 5, 2020
Tom Ellis was ecstatic about his returning replying: “Utterly delighted and excited to get back alongside you both in front of and behind the camera.”
Also attached for season six so far are:
- Lauren German as Chloe
- Lesley-Ann Brandt as Maze
- Rachael Harris as Linda Martin
- Aimee Garcia as Ella Lopez
- Kevin Alejandro as Dan Espinoza
- Scarlett Estevez as Trixie Espinoza
- D.B. Woodside as Amenadiel
Lucifer season six will consist of 10 episodes
After an article from TVLine reporting that Lucifer season six would only consist of eight episodes, it was later debunked by DB Woodside who confirmed that season six would consist of 10 episodes in total.
If the writer’s account follows a similar pattern to season five, we’ll likely see scripts posted over the course of the next few months revealing the episode titles, writers’ names, and directors.
When will season six of Lucifer start filming?
Official production status: Pre-production (Last updated: 09/09/2020)
As of August 2020, filming for season five part B has yet to fully complete. As we reported earlier in the year, that’s currently due to restart in October 2020 although that’s now set to happen on September 24th, 2020.
Assuming this doesn’t get pushed back, Tom Ellis has stated that he’s expecting season 5B and season six to film back-to-back.
As for when we can expect season six of Lucifer streaming on Netflix? Our guess is as good as yours. Let’s assume part two could air in mid-2021, we could then see season six either in very late 2021 or 2022.
There you have it, everything we know so far about Lucifer season six coming to Netflix over the next few years. Let us know in the comments if you’re excited.
