As 'Lucifer' Season 5B gets going, we cannot help but wonder what the future holds for this crime-fantasy series. The makers had once said they would stop at the current season but were able to quickly change their minds when they realized Tom Ellis's Lucifer Morningstar had more stories in him to tell.


Over the years, the series had an unusual journey. It was canceled by FOX when Season 3 ended but Netflix swooped in and saved the day. Not that anyone's complaining, especially after the team has wrapped up shoot for Season 6.

Air date

Last year June, Netflix ordered the sixth and final season of 'Lucifer' but a release date is yet to be announced. The filming for the 10-episode season has ended and the show is currently in post-production, which means the fans can hope for a late 2021 or an early 2022 release. Will it be divided into parts A and B just like Season 5? At this point, there's no information, but watch this space for updates.


How to live stream

Seasons one through five can be streamed here.


As we mentioned, the show was set to end with Season 5 when showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich said that the show had more to offer. "No, this is perfect. If we do this, it'll ruin everything!' Then three days later, you're like, ‘Wait, how could we not have done this?'" Henderson explained in an interview with EW.

Henderson and Modrovich wrote the ending in such a way that it would serve as a slow but perfect conclusion to Season 5 and yet have enough to go for the upcoming one."It's the story we were always going to tell, but just written much larger and, to me, so much more interestingly, that it breaks my heart to think we weren't [originally] going to do it this way,” Henderson further elaborated.



Unlike the previous ones, Season 6 will focus on developing each of the characters, which means the users can expect to see them in a different light. "What makes Season six so special is you get a lot of episodes that will focus on one of the characters,” actor DB Woodside explained in an interview with Entertainment Tonight. It will also follow Lucifer's growth and how he evolves as a character over the episodes. "How far Lucifer has come, and how different that he is, and how that reflects on who he used to be," co-executive producer Mike Costa told Assignment X in an interview.

Ellis and Woodside aside, Lauren German, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Rachael Harris, Aimee Garcia, Kevin Alejandro, and Scarlett Estevez will reprise their roles. Merrin Dungey and Brianna Hildebrand will join the roster as a cop and angel, respectively.

'Lucifer' has been developed and written by Tom Kapinos. The show is loosely based on the DC Comics characters that were sketched by Neil Gaiman and Mike Dringenberg.
