Tom Ellis Teases a behind the Scene Image of Lucifer Season 6. Here’s What We Know.
Warning: Spoilers and plot details for Lucifer season 5 follow.
Since the second part of Lucifer season 5 premiered on Netflix in May 2021, fans have been waiting eagerly for any information on season 6.
Finally, on July 23, the Lord of Darkness himself, Tom Ellis, stoked the flames of the final season with a photo upload on his Instagram.
In the photo, Ellis’s character, Lucifer Morningstar, was impeccably dressed as always and backed up to a DeLorean.
The behind-the-scenes shot did not hint at what was in store for season 6, but, in the caption, Ellis did promise it was going to be good.
Season 6 Details
During the San Diego Comic-Con, Netflix revealed that it would debut the sixth and final season on September 10. The service also announced a one-and-a-half-minute teaser video that boldly stated, “All good things must come to an end.”
The fantasy series created by Tom Kapinos (Dawson’s Creek, Californication) is based on the DC Comics character created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Keith, and Mike Dringenberg.
In the detective show, fans follow the titular Devil who abandons his throne and travels to Los Angeles, where he falls in love with an LAPD detective. There, he uses his manipulation powers to disclose people’s actual intentions to assist her in solving murders.
The series was initially canceled after three seasons but was rescued by Netflix and was due to end after season five. However, last June, Netflix reversed its course and picked it up for a final season.
At the end of season 5, part 2, Lucifer was crowned as the new God as he defeated Michael. In season 6, fans will see Lucifer take on his new celestial role, which will change Lucifer's life.
Some recurring cast members include Ellis, Lauren German, Kevin Alejandro, D.B. Woodside, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Rachael Harris, and Aimee Garcia.
Season 5 Recap
For those of you that are still in shambles trying to piece back the last season together in your mind, here is a recap.
In season 5, God (Dennis Haysbert) returned to Earth to repair his broken relationship with his children, Lucifer and Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside). But he makes a shocking announcement of his retirement and goes to a different universe to be with the love of his life.
All hell breaks loose after this.
Lucifer and his evil twin Michael end up in an unholy competition to be the new ruler of the universe. In an epic season finale battle, Michael orchestrated detective Dan Espinoza’s (Kevin Alejandro) death and killed Chloe (Lauren German).
This forces Lucifer to go up to Heaven and rescue her, but he dies and comes back with the elevated status as the new God.
This season 5 cliffhanger left a few unanswered questions, but for now, we will have to wait for season 6 to drop for our questions to be answered.
