Despite everything, the end is really near for the devil, as the release date of Lucifer 6, sixth and final season of the TV series starring Tom Ellis as a charming (but always rebellious) king of the underworld.
As revealed by EW, the news came, needless to say, during the panel of the Comic-Con @ Home dedicated to the show Netflix which saw Ellis himself and the series co-showrunners as guests Joe Henderson And Ildy Modrovich.
Lucifer 6 release date
The sixth and final season of Lucifer will debut on September 10 on the streaming catalog of the Scotts Valley giant which, in 2019, saved the show from the cancellation wanted by Fox after the first three seasons.
Lucifer’s fate was still to end after 5 seasons, but Netflix and Warber Bros. wanted to bet again on the show by “extending” the fifth season with the aim of making another 10 episodes. The showrunners, in fact, have effectively eliminated the ending that was supposed to end the show, given the departure of one of the main characters, continuing to write additional material.
What happened in the Lucifer 5 ending?
In the Season 5 finale Lucifer started a war against his angelic but devious twin brother Michael (also played by Tom Ellis). Michael has in fact killed the detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German), “colleague” and girlfriend of Lucifer.
The death of the woman kicks off the epic confrontation between angels and demons, with Lucifer shattered by loss who travels to Heaven to bring Chloe back to life, knowing that only one of them could return to Earth. This act of unconditional love and altruism erases millennia of exile and wickedness of the former fallen angel, with Lucifer becoming the new God and returning to end the war against Michael, opening a new intriguing story arc that will be the leitmotif of the last season. This time the final one for real.
