Welcome, all Netflix lovers, there is good news in the box for you. Lucifer series which came from Fox to Netflix is returning. Season 6 of the series was not expected but thanks to Netflix, now the fans will be able to watch. Here is all the update we have about Lucifer Season 6.
The release is expected either in late 2021 or the beginning of 2022.
The announcement came via an official Twitter post, which was supported by the numbers “666” and the following caption: “The devil made us do it. #Lucifer will return for a sixth and final season. Like, FINAL final.”
Before Season 6 is on air, buffs are waiting for the second part of season 5.
Co-showrunner Joe Henderson told one fan on Twitter that “everyone should prepare for it taking longer than they’d like – post [production] is a lot of work and takes time”, adding: “Definitely not December.”
How Many Lucifer Episodes in Season 6?
There will be 10 episodes, as reported by TV Line. That makes six less than in season five.
Originally, there was no Lucifer: Season 6 plans but the love of fans made it come back with the petition signed by more than 100k folks.
Fans are very much excited after this Twitter post by Henderson
The shooting kicked off on October 6, 2020.
“Today is our first day of shooting #Lucifer season 6!,” tweeted Henderson.
The planning of season 6 started in February 2020 when Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson signed for the same. Tommy Elly signed the contract finally in May 2020 after many hurdles. And finally, on June 23rd, 2020, an official announcement for Season 6 was made. Thanks to all the beloved fans behind this for their litigation.

It was also recently confirmed that Scarlett Estevez will be reprising her role as Trixie Espinoza, Chloe’s daughter for the sixth season as well as the second half of the fifth season. The co-showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich said –
“Fans will still definitely get their Trixie fix. We adore Scarlett and shuffled things around a bit to make sure we could keep the tale of the future President of Mars going!”
Chris Rafferty also recently announced that due to COVID-related scheduling changes, Karen Gaviola will no longer be able to direct the penultimate episode “Goodbye, Lucifer.” Kevin Alejandro (who plays LAPD homicide detective Dan Espinoza) will be taking her place.
Lucifer Season 6: Plot
Executive producer Mike Costa said in an interview via Assignment X: “We realized that we were kind of rushing the end of the show, that we had come to the conclusion of the arc of season 5 with what Michael was doing, and what Dad being there meant, and all of this stuff, and different conflicts between the characters, and then we had this extended denouement that was to wrap up the series. We had our end of the season, and then, here’s the coda that wraps up our series.”
Henderson said: “It’s the story we were always going to tell, but just written much larger and to me [now] so much more interesting than it breaks my heart to think we weren’t [originally] going to do it this way.” Modrovich said that “one giant story” will play out in season six” that just needed to be told.
This is all we know for now. Lucifer lovers will have to wait for trailers and teasers.
