Be careful, spoilers. It is advisable to have seen Lucifer season 6 before continuing to read this article.
Much awaited by fans, season 6 of Lucifer put an end to the adventures of the Lord of the Underworld played by Tom Ellis. And to come to its conclusion, the series has had a path strewn with pitfalls.
First canceled by Fox at the end of its season 3, then saved by Netflix, Lucifer was initially due to end at the end of its season 5. But the platform granted a sixth and final season to the series for the greatest happiness of the fans.
The circle has come full circle with season 6
And if there have been multiple twists and turns on the survival of the series, one thing is certain: there will be no season 7. This is what showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich told Entertainment Weekly. When they finished writing Season 5, Netflix offered them to write Season 6 and they were very reluctant at first but eventually changed their minds:
“It was the same feeling as when we went from 10 to 16 episodes [pour la saison 5]. We were like, ‘No, that’s perfect. If we add a season, it will ruin everything! ‘ And then three days later, we were like ‘Wait, how could we not have done it?’ “
The two showrunners changed their minds for a Season 6, which allowed them to further explore the relationship between Lucifer and Chloe (Lauren German) and explain why the former remains in the Underworld to help lost souls and that the second remains on Earth thanks to the arrival of their daughter Rory (Brianna Hildebrand) from the future.
But they will not go any further. The showrunners have confirmed that there will be no season 7 and that Lucifer’s season 6 is indeed the last:
“This is the story we were always going to tell [dans la saison 6], but just more in-depth and so much more interesting now, to me. It breaks my heart to think that we weren’t going [à l’origine] end the series this way. When they asked us to do one more season, we said, ‘Yes, but this is our last story.’ “
