Filming has just wrapped on the sixth and final season of the popular urban fantasy drama, Lucifer. As the gargantuan streaming series prepares to deliver its next chapter on Netflix next month, one of the series’ head writers has been teasing what’s to come in the devil’s last adventure.
Co-showrunner for Netflix’s hit Biblical crime drama Lucifer, Joe Henderson, has previewed a completely different tone for the show’s upcoming final season.
Following last year’s COVID delays, the cast and crew have finally been able to wrap up production on season six in Los Angeles.
However, fans are still waiting on the arrival of the remaining eight episodes of season five, which premiered its first half in August 2020.
While Netflix subscribers await a monumental reunion between Lucifer Morningstar (played by Tom Ellis) and his Dad, God (Dennis Haysbert), Henderson is already building hype for the show’s grand finale.

He told Word Balloon in a recent interview: “I love them both in different ways.
“Season 5b is big and epic; season six is sweet and personal. I don’t even know how to compare them.”
Little is known about the plot of Lucifer’s final season, although the newly confirmed episode titles have already fuelled a number of fan theories.
It’s also unclear whether the crime-solving devil’s estranged Heavenly father will be sticking around beyond season five, or his new nemesis, evil twin brother Michael.
Viewers were delighted last year when Netflix made the surprising decision to renew Lucifer for a sixth season, having previously announced season five would be its last.
Now the events of Lucifer’s upcoming season finale have been revised in the wake of the show’s unexpected renewal, Henderson is confident fans will be aching for the series to continue once the credits roll.
He continued: “Every season of Lucifer completes the story, but also teases something to come. And that is something we have done every single season.
“Like any good serial storytelling, you’re going to want to come back for season six and we will give you a pretty good reason.”
What that reason could be has yet to be confirmed, but the series has already built a reputation for hitting fans with some pretty spectacular cliffhangers.
Thankfully, there isn’t too long to wait to find out, as new episodes of Lucifer will finally arrive at the end of May.
Until then, long term fans and newcomers to the series have more than enough time to brush up on the events so far before the crime-solving devil makes his highly anticipated return.
Lucifer Season 5, Part 2 premieres Friday, May 28 on Netflix.
