The internet is being overwhelmed with the news that Lucifer is ending with season 6. Is it really true? To get the answer, read this article about Lucifer Season 6!
Lucifer is an urban American fantasy TV series created by Tom Kapinos. He is one of the most famous American television screenwriters, more popular for creating Lucifer.
The series arrived with its first season on Fox on January 25, 2016. The series takes its inspiration from the DC Comics character created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth, and Mike Dringenberg. The producers of the series are Jerry Bruckheimer Television, DC Entertainment, and Warner Bros. Television.
What Is Lucifer All About!
The story of Lucifer is almost as legend as the biblical narratives that inspire it. Based on the Vertigo comic, Lucifer is the myth of the first fallen angel.
Bored and annoyed as the Lord of Hell, Lucifer Morningstar, left his throne. He came to Los Angeles, where he started helping LAPD investigator Chloe Decker taking down the criminals.
Lucifer Season 1 to 5: Overview

In April 2016, Fox decided to renew the show for a second season, having 13 episodes. Lucifer season 2 arrived on September 19, 2016. On October 31, 2016, the show got a 9-episode addition for a total of 22 episodes.
The first two seasons did well. However, they couldn’t earn many ratings, but the audience still loved Lucifer. Fox Studio renewed the series for a third season on February 13, 2017. Season 3 was broadcasted on October 2, 2017, having 22 episodes.
But, in March 2017, the producers decided that the last four episodes of the second season would be eliminated and arranged in season 3 to air. This resulted in the second season having 18 and the third season with 26 episodes.
Once again, the production team made changes in the number of episodes in season 3. On January 22, 2018, writer Chris Rafferty declared that the third season would preferably include 24 episodes, and they’ll save another two episodes for season 4.
Looking at the low popularity of the show, Fox dropped the series after three seasons on May 11, 2018, saying it was a “ratings-based decision.” So, you’ll notice the two additional episodes back-to-back as ‘Bonus Episodes’ at the finale of season 3.
Before the cancellation, co-showrunner Ildy Modrovich said they’ll possibly move the last two episodes. Instead, Fox aired both episodes on May 28, 2018, as special two-hour premium episodes.
On June 15, 2018, Netflix stated that it had picked the series up for Lucifer season 4, having ten episodes. The fourth season arrived on May 8, 2019. Next month, on June 6, 2019, Netflix renewed the series for a fifth and final season.
The episode number for season 5 was later increased to 16. Lucifer season 5 will arrive in two groups of eight episodes each, beginning August 21, 2020. With season 5 part one coming on Netflix in August 2020, most attention turned to part 2, which has recently finished shooting and is due in early 2021.
In June 2020, Netflix officially announced the renewal of Lucifer with the sixth and final season of ten episodes. The announcement came through an official Twitter post, which was followed 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.”
Where Has The Production For Lucifer Season 6 Reached?
After an article from TVLine stating that Lucifer season 6 would only have eight episodes, it was later overturned by DB Woodside, who plays the role of Lucifer’s angelic older brother, reinforced that season 6 will have ten episodes in total.
Here’s the tweet where DB Woodside confirmed the news:
That escalated quickly. 😂
Y’all are hilarious. 10! It will be 10 amazing episodes! Now let me get off twitter before my phone starts blowing up! ❤️😘 https://t.co/b0E40UlfMo

During summer 2020, the makers kept the second part of Lucifer season 5 on hold because of the pandemic. We know that the tea had shot most of the episodes, but a few more are remaining.
In August, we heard that the shooting for season 5B would restart in October. However, it actually resumed on September 24, 2020.
Tom Ellis said in many interviews that production for Lucifer season 6 would go parallel with season 5.
However, the shooting for season 6 started on October 6, 2020, as the co-showrunner, Joe Henderson, confirmed the news via Twitter.
Today is our first day of shooting #Lucifer season 6! So happy we've finished up season 5, and we will be working our buns off to get it finished and to Netflix! Thanks to our incredible cast and crew for working hard and safe and delivering a kickass finale!!

In late September, many team members posted pictures to declare that season 6 had officially started production.

On October 29, 2020, we got confirmation by Twitter that the writers had wrapped up their job for season 6 of Lucifer, with Ildy Modrovich posting to Twitter to say that it was the “last day in the Lucifer Writers Room.”
The Lucifer Writers Room official Twitter account has also released titles for the first four episodes of Lucifer Season 6. Here they are!
Lucifer Season 6: Cast
Even before the producers announced season six, Tom Ellis’s participation was a big gossip online. But ultimately, all of the babble died down when the producers confirmed that he would certainly be back.
Modrovich and Henderson are also on the track, and here’s a list of core members of Lucifer:
- Tom Ellis as Lucifer Morningstar
- Lauren German as Chloe
- Aimee Garcia as Ella Lopez
- DB Woodside as Amenadiel
- Lesley-Ann Brandt as Maze
- Rachael Harris as Linda Martin
- Kevin Alejandro as Dan Espinoza
- Scarlett Estevez as Trixie Espinoza
However, we must say that as we haven’t got season 5B, we’re not sure if all of these faces will be back for the closing chapter. As moving towards the final point, there’s a possibility that something tragic might happen, dropping any of the characters from the list.
We also know that Henderson is planning something on Netflix in the future, but we don’t know precisely when.
How Will Lucifer Season 6 End?
Given that all the actors came into action in July of 2020, it’s right to say that even the writers might not know where things are going at this point.
One of our favorite assumptions about how season 6 would start comes from a Lucifer Reddit page, where a follower gave up an idea that extends from the very first episode in season 5.
In the previous seasons, the series started with Lucifer coming in contact with Lee Garner (Jeremiah Birkett). Well, here’s the spoiler! In the first episode of season 5, we see Garner stuck in a Hell loop.
Lucifer offers him a gateway into his childhood house to see his family — a gate he wasn’t able to access the land of the living due to his guilty conscience. The fans say that the entrance with which Lucifer offers Garner is actually the gateway out of Hell. How epic end would that be?
Lucifer Season 6: Release Date
Before we can decide when season six will arrive, we’re still waiting for the second half of season 5. Tom Ellis gave an update about the release date for season 5B at the end of August in the conversation with the Pilot TV podcast:
“The second eight episodes, I’m not sure when they’re going to drop because we’ve still got the finale [to shoot]. We were about halfway through it. So we go back, we start with that, and then we go straight into season six.”
“So hopefully that’ll be ready to go, I would imagine, sort of Christmas time or early next year,” said Tom Ellis.
As for season six, we can presume that it might release around mid-2021. We haven’t heard from the makers as of now. As soon as we get something, we’ll update the article.
While the fifth season was initially planned to be the last, Lucifer is proving to be one of those series that just won’t stay still — which seems very, very appropriate, given that Lucifer has a way of challenging everyone’s expectations.
The filming for Lucifer season 6 is continuing. The production on the fifth season and sixth seasons suffered a delay due to the global pandemic. While waiting for season 5B and 6, you can watch the previous seasons on Netflix as they’re as captivating to watch as Lucifer!
