Lucifer season 6 is coming to Netflix this Friday around the globe. It’s the final season of the saved show that Netflix acquired from Fox. Here’s our updated and final look at everything you need to know about season 6 of Lucifer.

Becoming a Netflix Original back for season 4, the series has become one of Netflix’s biggest hits, which will sadly be coming to an end after six seasons.

The fifth season of Lucifer walked away with a nomination for the 2021 Emmys for best choreography for a scripted show and Tom Ellis was nominated for best actor in a streaming comedy series.

Let’s dig into what we know so far about season 6 of Lucifer, but we’ll start with the final season trailer, which was released on August 10th, 2021.

When will season 6 of Lucifer be released on Netflix?

Thanks to production being completed, a much faster release schedule was expected than in previous seasons.

At ComicCon@Home, Netflix officially revealed that season 6 of Lucifer is coming to Netflix globally on September 10th, 2021.


The Road to Lucifer Season 6 renewal

Originally, of course, season 6 of Lucifer was never going to happen.

Netflix’s revival of the series from season four onwards was meant to end after season 5. That’s partly why the show was split into two halves and given an extended season.

When Netflix gave season 5 the final season order, naturally, fans weren’t happy that Netflix gave life to Lucifer but only took it away two seasons later. It led to your usual campaigns, such as petitions (with the best-performing petition securing over 100K signatures).

With the numerous high-profile campaigns and the fact Lucifer continues to blow records out of the water, fans prevailed and once again got the show renewed.

Lucifer Season 5a Netflix August 2020

Rumors for a sixth season began in early 2020 that Netflix had reversed its decision and began seeking to renew season 6, 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.

In April 2020, after more talks, the second revival looked less likely as Tom Ellis’s contract negotiations fell through; however, they were fixed, and Tom Ellis was signed back on in May 2020.

The first we heard of Netflix reversing course was back in February 2020 when TVLine 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 6 was set to happen but that it would be the “final FINAL” season.

Has the story to season 5 changed now Lucifer has been renewed?

Joe Henderson addressed whether the ending to season 5b will change now that Netflix has given a sixth season. Speaking in an interview, he said:

“It will remain exactly the same as we had planned and it was really very, very important to us. When the idea for season 6 came up, Ildy (Modrovich, the co-showrunner) and I said to Netflix, ‘if we do this and we find the right story, the thing we don’t want to do is to undo everything we have done ‘. Once you see Season 5B you will understand how A and B are actually one big season. How it all relates … The things that happen in the Season 5 premiere fit in completely with the ending.”

In an additional interview Chris Rafferty said that they wouldn’t have introduced God in season 5 had they known they were moving ahead with season 6, saying:

“I don’t think we would have brought God down to Earth. It’s pretty hard to top the Almighty. But I’m glad we did Season 5 the way we did it – it turned out more epic than a penultimate season has any right to be.”

Who’s involved with Lucifer season 6?

As we mentioned above, Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson, who serve as the co-showrunners, are both on board to see Lucifer season 6 through.

It wasn’t until early July that DB Woodside confirmed he’d be returning a Tweet saying:

Tom Ellis was ecstatic about his return, replying: “Utterly delighted and excited to get back alongside you both in front of and behind the camera.”

The other main cast members returning for season 6 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

In late September 2020, Scott Porter confirmed he’d be appearing in both season 5b and season 6. Scott is mainly known for his role in Friday Night Lights but has also featured in Speed Racer and will have a role in Netflix’s upcoming drama Ginny & Georgia.

In October 2020, we got word of two new guest stars that will feature in season 6. Those are Chris Coy and Rob Zabrecky.

Chris Coy is known for his appearances on The Duece, The Front Runner, and Detroit. He’s set to play the role of Alan.

Rob Zabrecky is known for his appearances in A Ghost Story, Lost River, and Criminal Minds. He’s set to play the role of Horace Goldfinger.

New Castings For Lucifer Season 6

In December 2020, we learned of several new castings.

EW revealed that Merrin Dungey and Brianna Hildebrand will be starring in season 6. They notably “will have ties to the show’s angelic family.” Dungey, who is known for Alias, will play Sonya. Hildebrand, who is known for Deadpool, will play Rory.

On December 10th, we exclusively revealed that Mandy June Turpin would be guest-starring in season 6 in the role of Dr. Jessica LaMotte.

Lucifer season 6 episode count & episode titles

After an article from TVLine reported that Lucifer season 6 would consist of just eight episodes, it was later debunked by DB Woodside, who confirmed that season 6 would consist of 10 episodes in total.

In a Tweet, DB Woodside confirmed the ten episodes by saying:

“10! It will be 10 amazing episodes!”

What to expect from Lucifer Season 6

Now, let’s take a look at what we can expect storywise from season 6. Of course, the episode titles just above give us some ideas, but let’s quickly make some predictions about what we see from Lucifer season 6.

Through a myriad of interviews, we already have a pretty good idea of what’s coming up in season 6.

We know there’s going to be a time jump between the end of season 5B to season 6 and that we won’t be focusing on a specific villain for season 6 instead aiming to focus on the core cast. Joe Henderson said, “Season 6 is a much more intimate season, more character-focused.”

Lots of theories surrounding what will happen to Chloe given that she’s no longer a detective, but that’s going to work in the favor of the cases covered in season 6, which are said to be “more personal than ever, allowing us to really focus on our main cast of characters as we approach the end.”

It’s also been said in a video interview that Chloe will find out about Lucifer’s past sacrifices.

Chris Rafferty has given us an insight via interviews as to what we can expect, saying:

“There’s never been a transition of God’s power to a new God before. In the Season 5 finale, you see a lot of confusion amongst all the angels as to how exactly it all works – no one really knows. So our characters still have a few things to figure out, including getting to the truth of what it is they truly desire.”

Lucifer has been a man of many jobs, and season 6 will have him taking up a new position as “God” with his father retiring.

Finally, Henderson has given us a broad overview as to what we can expect from season 6, saying:

“Bittersweet endings, tears and joy and a fitting goodbye to the characters we love so much.”

What Time Will Lucifer Season 5 Part 2 Be On Netflix


In July 2021, Tom Ellis shared a first look still from season 6 where he’s standing to the side of a classic DeLorean car that featured in the Back to the Future trilogy.

An entire episode of the final season was filmed at Magic Castle in Hollywood, according to Netflix’s sneak peek at the final season. Another episode will take place at the Disney Concert Hall.

As you know, Lucifer has always experimented with each season, whether that is with a noir episode or musical, and season 6 will be tearing up the rule book with an animated episode. The animated episode will be episode 3.

How long was season 6 of Lucifer in production?

Throughout the summer of 2020, Lucifer season 5b was put on hold due to the pandemic. We know the majority of episodes had been filmed but a few more had to be completed.

In August 2020, we learned that filming for season 5b was due to restart in October 2020, although it actually kickstarted on September 24th, 2020.

Tom Ellis stated in numerous interviews that production would simultaneously move from season 5 to 6.

In late September 2020, several cast and crew members posted to confirm that season 6 had officially started production.

Filming, however, began on October 6th, 2020, as confirmed by the co-showrunner Joe Henderson.

In late October 2020, we got confirmation that the writers had concluded their work on the sixth and final season with Ildy Modrovich taking to Twitter to confirm that it was the “last day in the Lucifer Writer’s Room”.

Filming was still ongoing as of December and January 2021 although Variety had revealed that Lucifer was among the many productions that had faced an extension from coming back from the holidays due to exploding COVID-19 rates in Los Angeles. It’s unclear whether the series has restarted filming in 2021.

In February 2021, the series continues to be in production, with numerous cast members continuing to post from the Warner Brothers lot.

Lesley Ann Brandt On Set Lucifer Season 6

In early March 2021, Joe Henderson shared that they had just completed the penultimate table read and said it was emotional Tweeting:

“Today was the second to last Lucifer table read… ever… if we got that emotional today, I’m terrified of how much I’m going to cry at the last one…”

Tom Ellis responded, saying, “I had something in my eye. Honest.”

When can we expect season 6 of Lucifer to stream on Netflix? Our guess is as good as yours. With part 2 airing in early 2021, it’s not inconceivable that the series could return on Netflix for season 6 by the end of 2021. However, our safe bet right now is in early 2022.

On March 17th, 2021, Ildy confirmed that the team was gearing up to film the final episode, meaning that we’re expecting filming to finish completely within the next few days.

First Of Last Day Shooting Lucifer Season 6

Then, just a few short days later, we got confirmation (alongside the release date for season 5b) that filming had indeed concluded.

There are numerous posts from the cast and crew worth reading, but perhaps the best post to summarize how the cast and crew are all feeling is the Instagram post from Lesley-Ann Brandt saying:

“The Lucifer family has grown over the years & extends further than the WB lot. It includes our Vancouver crew from season 1 & 2. Reflecting on the many faces, be it LA or Vancouver, what remains is we have been surrounded & supported by some of the most hardworking & talented individuals in our business, who’ve been on this crazy roller coaster of cancellations, a formidable fan base and renewals. It then grew to include our Netflix family which fit like a glove when we moved over, finally to settle on a platform that expanded our world to include some 190 countries. It starts on the page & ends with what you see on screen, but it takes an entire family to make it so. I can’t hug and thank you all individually but I’ll say this. Thank you for helping become her. For working along side me, for showing up. I’ve made life long friendships. I’ve learned some incredible lessons. I’ve grown & I’m a better artist & actress for knowing you. To the fans, none of it was possible without you. You embraced us and a demon with heart. I love you. Simply and deeply, with my all, thank you.”

Will there be a season 7 of Lucifer?

Nope, and that’s for definite this time.

Co-showrunner Joe Henderson has definitively ruled out the show coming back for a seventh season.

Now you’re prepped for Lucifer season 6; here are a few more pictures from the final season.

There you have it, everything we know so far about Lucifer season 6 coming to Netflix shortly. Let us know in the comments if you’re excited.
