Lucifer Season 6 will be available on Netflix worldwide this Friday. 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.
Lucifer's fifth season won a nomination at the Emmys 2021 for best choreography on a scripted series. Tom Ellis received a nod for best actor in 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.
A faster schedule for release was possible due to the fact that production is complete than it was in past seasons.
At [email protected], Netflix officially revealed that season 6 of Lucifer is coming to Netflix globally on September 10th, 2021.

Season 6 of Lucifer wasn't going to take place in the original plan.
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 regave life to Lucifer but to only take it away two seasons later. This led to the usual petition campaigns (the best-performing petition garnering over 100K signatures).
Fans prevailed with the many high-profile campaigns, and Lucifer's continuing to break records, and got the show renewed.
In early 2020, rumors began about a sixth season. Netflix was rumored to have reversed their decision. However, Netflix began looking for renewals of season 6, but it only after everyone had signed up.
Ildy Modrovich, Joe Henderson and Joe Henderson signed up for the sixth season in February 2020.
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.
We first heard about Netflix's reversal of course in February 2020, when TVLine learned that Netflix had been in discussions with Warner Brothers Television in order to expand the series.
On June 23rd, 2020 – we officially got word that season 6 was set to happen but that it would be the “final FINAL” season.
Joe Henderson asked if the end of season 5b would change after Netflix had given us a sixth season. He said in an interview:
“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.”
Ildy Modrovich (co-showrunner) and Joe Henderson (details above) are onboard for Lucifer's sixth season.
It wasn’t until early July until DB Woodside confirmed he’d be returning a Tweet saying:
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.”
Other cast members who will be returning to season 6 include:
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.
We received word in October 2020 that two guest stars will be appearing on season 6. These are Rob Zabrecky and Chris Coy.
Chris Coy's appearances on The Duece and The Front Runner are well-known. He’s set to play the role of Alan.
Rob Zabrecky's appearances in A Ghost Story and Lost River are well-known. He’s set to play the role of Horace Goldfinger.
We learned about several casting innovations in December 2020.
EW has revealed that Merrin Dungy and Brianna Hildebrand are the stars of 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 best known for Deadpool, will portray Rory.
We exclusively announced that Mandy June Turpin will be appearing as Dr. Jessica LaMotte in Season 6 on December 10, 2010.
A tweet from DB Woodside stated that the 10 episodes were confirmed by:
“10! It will be 10 amazing episodes!”
The Lucifer Writers account is slowly teasing the names for the next episodes, as per season 6. These are the ones that have been announced so far.
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 as to 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 gave us an inside look via interviews into what to expect:
“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.
Henderson gives us an overview of what season 6 will bring.
“Bittersweet endings, tears and joy and a fitting goodbye to the characters we love so much.”
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. A second episode will be filmed at Disney Concert Hall.
Lucifer is known for his experimentation with every season, whether it be musicals or noir episodes. Season 6 will see Lucifer breaking the rules with animated episodes. Episode 3 will become the animated episode.
Lucifer's fifth season was put on hold in 2020 due to pandemic. While we know that the majority of episodes were filmed, there was still a handful more to complete.
We were informed in August 2020 that production on season 5b would resume in October 2020. However, it began actually September 24, 2020.
In multiple interviews, Tom Ellis said that the production would move simultaneously from season 5 into 6.
Ende September 2020 saw several crew and cast members post to confirm that season 6 was officially in production.
According to Joe Henderson, the showrunner, filming began in October 2020.
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”.
Although filming continued as usual in December and January 20,21, Variety revealed that Lucifer was one of the productions who had been denied permission to return from holidays because of the exploding Los Angeles COVID-19 rate. It’s unclear whether the series has restarted filming in 2021.
The series is still in production as many cast members continue to work from the Warner Brothers lot.
Joe Henderson, an early-March 2021 tweeter, shared the news that they just finished their penultimate Table Read and described it as emotional.
“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 Lucifer season 6 to stream on Netflix? We are as confident as you to guess when season 6 of Lucifer will be available on Netflix. 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. Our safest bet is early 2022.
On March 17th, 2021 Ildy confirmed that the team were gearing up to film the final episode meaning that we’re expecting filming to completely finish within the next few days.
A few days later we received confirmation that the filming was over.
While there are many posts by cast and crew that are worth your time, the most important post is Lesley Ann Brandt's Instagram post:
“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.”
You can see more behind the scenes shots from season 6. There’s an excellent compilation album on Imgur.
Nope and that’s for definite this time.
Joe Henderson, co-showrunner of the series has ruled out a seventh season.
Now you’re prepped for Lucifer season 6, here are a few more pictures from the final season.
