The past year has seen many television shows and films come and go, their trajectory directly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Some have simply run their course in convenient timing with the pandemic, the circumstances simply serving as a backdrop rather than a reason. One of those shows is Lucifer, which has had a successful run of five seasons thus far via the streaming platform Netflix. The series will get one last hurrah however, and now, thanks to the official trailer, we finally know the official release date for season 6 of Lucifer.
The title is a pretty good indication of the series’ premise: Lucifer follows Lucifer Morningstar, otherwise known as The Devil, as the gallavants around the city of angels, Los Angeles. Despite the name though, the show has actually been dubbed a superhero series and stems from the work of DC Comics scribes Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg. Lucifer owns a nightclub, works alongside the LAPD and, in essence, does his best to be as human as possible even when he so clearly is not. The series has showcased five successful seasons thus far, but will be bidding fans adieu with the upcoming sixth season. Much of the upcoming season has remained a mystery, but we at least now know that the sixth and final season of Lucifer will debut on Netflix September 10th.
As the trailer might indicate, Lucifer is a relatively light-hearted affair despite its title. One episode of the series was even musically themed, going against the image that the series’ title may indicate. Tom Ellis has been lauded for his work as Lucifer Morningstar, and we have still yet to see how the series ends. Dedicated fans now know when they’ll get the chance to, and can mark off September 10th on their calendars for the final season of Lucifer.
