Netflix has announced the premiere date for the upcoming sixth and final season of its popular supernatural series Lucifer. Starring Tom Ellis, the series is scheduled to make its return on Friday, September 10, with the last 10 episodes. The announcement also came with the release of the first Season 6 teaser which you can check out below, giving highlight to some of the important moments during past seasons along with new footage.
Based very loosely on the Vertigo comic, Lucifer tells the story of the original fallen angel. Bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, Lucifer Morningstar abandoned his throne. He then retired to Los Angeles, where he has teamed up with LAPD detective Chloe Decker to take down criminals.
The series currently stars Tom Ellis as the titular devil, Lauren German as Chloe, Lesley-Ann Brandt as Mazikeen, D.B. Woodside as Amenadiel, Rachel Harris as Linda, Scarlett Estevez as Trixie, Aimee Garcia as Ella Lopez, Inbar Lavi as Eve, and Kevin Alejandro as Det. Dan Espinoza.
It’s interesting to see how Alejandro’s Dan will be appearing in the final season, given his unfortunate fate during the last season. It was also previously confirmed that he will also be serving as the director for the first episode of the sixth season titled “Nothing Ever Changes Around Here,” as well as it penultimate episode titled “Goodbye Lucifer.” In addition to Alejandro, another cast member has also directed one of the final episodes of series, with Woodside directing the eighth episode titled, “Save the Devil, Save the World.”
The fifth season was originally going to be the final season for the fan-favorite series. However, Netflix decided to surprise fans and renew it for a sixth and final season last year, which will consist of 10 episodes.
Based on characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth, and Mike Dringenberg for Vertigo, from DC Entertainment, Lucifer is developed and executive produced by Tom Kapinos. Executive producers are Jerry Bruckheimer, KristieAnne Reed, Jonathan Littman, Ildy Modrovich, and Joe Henderson. Warner Bros. Television produces the series in association with Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Aggressive Mediocrity.
Seasons 1-5 are already available for streaming on Netflix.
