'Lucifer's' Final Season to Premiere in September on Netflix
The sixth and final season of Lucifer will debut on September 10, 2021, on Netflix
The makers of Lucifer, Netflix recently announced the release date for the sixth and final season of the show. The announcement came during the show's panel at Comic-Con, on July 24.
The sixth and final season of Lucifer will debut on September 10, 2021, on Netflix. During their panel, Tom Ellis along with executive producers Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich discussed the shocking ending of season 5. The previous season saw the death of the beloved character Dan.
While explaining the reason behind this decision, Joe Henderson talked about how Kevin Alejandro, who plays Dan, was the one who pitched the idea of him dying. He said, "Kevin Alejandro actually pitched us him dying because he's like, 'It's the last season, and everyone has grown to love this character.' We were in early goings-on and it sort of stuck with us as we went on. So it's Kevin's fault, really". Modrovich also added, "Yeah, he said he wants to go out in a fiery blaze of glory, so he did".
When speaking about what's to come in season 6 and if Lucifer will continue to solve cases, Tom Ellis said "Oh, I think it's in his DNA now. There may be the odd thing to solve but he's got a lot of mysteries to solve, to be honest, in Season 6."
What to expect from Lucifer Season 6?
