It’s the announcement that Lucifer fans have been waiting for, with the premiere date for the sixth and final series of the show having been revealed by Netflix.
Revealed alongside a minute-long teaser trailer during San Diego Comic-Con on July 24th, it was announced that Lucifer would be arriving on the streaming platform on September 10. Starring Tom Ellis, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Lauren German, D.B. Woodside, and Kevin Alejandro among others, the previous series was released earlier in 2021 after Netflix dropped the second half of series five.
“All bad things must come to an end,” Netflix used as the tagline for the final series.
Speaking to TV Line earlier this year, series producer Joe Henderson was asked whether a new character would be added for the final series of the show, to which he replied, “Oh, that’s a good one,” he said. “There is a new character in 6 that was not going to be a part of season five. A whole new character”.
The co-showrunner also addressed concerns about season six being rushed together following confirmation of the series’ late renewal, stating: “I don’t want people to think that Season 6 is almost like an elongated Act VI, because it’s not…It’s its own season. It’s got its own engine”.
Continuing, Henderson commented, “As we started to dig into Season 6, we found a new story we wouldn’t have told before”.
Announcing the sixth season of Lucifer would be “wildly different” to season 5B, Joe Henderson seems incredibly excited to show off the final series of the show, explaining: “Season 5B is big and epic; season six is sweet and personal. I don’t even know how to compare them…they’re so wildly different, and yet so very much of a whole. They’re very much part of a story going on”.
Released on September 10th 2021 on Netflix, we don’t have too long to wait.
