Lucifer Season 6 was announced in June, just over a month before the newest eight episodes arrived on Netflix. The sixth season will be the final installment of the prior Fox series and is expected to arrive at the streamer in 2021.
When Will Lucifer Season 6 Come To Netflix?
Lucifer’s “Lucifans” have got used to long waits between seasons: 19 months between Season 3 and 4 months when the show moved from Fox to Netflix, and then 15 months between four and also the first part of Season 5. If the release date of Season 6 works suit, fans may expect to see it on Netflix in late 2021.
On the other hand, the coronavirus may mean that we get Lucifer Season 6 earlier. As the series has to return to the production to film the past half of its season finale, the showrunners may opt to continue filming Season 6 while everyone is quarantined together. This could mean that the last season airs about a year after the beginning of Season 5 in August 2021.
This was verified to The Wrap by Lucifer celebrity Tom Ellis, who started production, “would start with what we have got left to perform the Season 5 finale and then we go into shooting Season 6”
Who Is In The Cast Of Lucifer Season 6?
Though it remains to be seen that makes it out of the current season alive, each of the present cast members are expected to go back for another pair of episodes. This may of course include Tom Ellis since the eponymous Lucifer, with Lauren German, Kevin Alejandro, D.B Woodside, Lesley-Ann Brandt, and Rachael Harris likely to join him.
The current season sets up two new cast members who might return for more. All these are Tom Ellis again, playing with Lucifer’s identical brother Michael, plus 24’s Dennis Haysbert as Lucifer’s father God.
What Will Happen In Lucifer Season 6?
Per Ellis, who disclosed to The Wrap he’s seen the whole outline for Season 6, the show has pretty much the same finish it would have experienced if it stopped as initially planned with Season 5. He said: “Basically, where we complete our series in Season 6 is where we were planning to finish in Season 5 but we got another story to tell in between as a breaking point.”
Lucifer co-showrunner Joe Henderson went to detail at “Season 5 is exactly what it was always going to be, except the very, very end of it is now its own season, plus all these new ideas we came up with as we all dug into it and explored it.”
Speaking to Variety, meanwhile, the showrunners suggested there may be some references to current events in the last pair of episodes. Henderson said: “Pandemic-wise we might make some passing references to it, but we’re not going to make a meal of this. . .But that the 1 thing we’re likely to address is our location inside the area of police procedurals.. it’s important for us to talk to this glamorization of police officers and our location at that.”
When Will The Lucifer Season 6 Trailer Be Released?
If the trailer follows the pattern set by Season 5, we will get our first look at the new season about a month or two before the series returns. This means we’re not likely to get a promo until the summer of 2021.
Lucifer Season 6 is coming soon to Netflix.
