Lucifer season 5B’s successful completion of filming means that Netflix will be releasing the drama in no time at all. In addition, production for season 6 is now underway after getting another greenlight, further extending its initial five-season stint. As a result, some fans are curious and hopeful to know whether this could happen again come season 6. Will there really be a season 7 for Lucifer?
Created by Tom Kapinos, Lucifer is a supernatural drama based on DC Comics. It first premiered on Fox, where it spawned three more seasons. Netflix picked up the series for a fourth outing after Fox canceled the show. Lucifer was then supposed to end with the fifth installment but got extended for one more season.
Given this pattern of reviving the show back several times, viewers can’t help but hope for a seventh season too. Unfortunately, it does seem like season 6 will really be the final season of the devilish drama.
Will there be a season 7 for Lucifer?
In June, the show confirmed that it is coming back for a sixth season, which also serves as its final. A video announcement was posted in its official social media account saying, “The devil made us do it. Lucifer will return for a sixth and final season. Like, FINAL final.”
Showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich also opened up about it in an interview back in August. They both agreed that six seasons were just right for the show.
Henderson explained, “I feel like the legacy of a show is so defined by whether it sticks the landing. And that was where our concern came from.”
“We felt like we were about to stick the landing and it was, ‘Do we want to jeopardize that?’ But what we realize now is, this is us sticking the landing, and it’s really, really exciting.”
Modrovich added, “And Lucifer getting six seasons, it just sounds right.”
Actor Tom Ellis who plays the titular Lucifer, has also said that he will not come back after season 6.
“Six seasons of the show is a real achievement. It’s been a huge emotional journey and I don’t think I want to do anymore,” Ellis confessed.
“I know I don’t want to do anymore. Mainly because I wanna know that we’re ending and because I’ve had such a great time. I think it’s only fitting that we have a proper ending to the show.”
While it seems frustrating, fans should not easily fret as there could be potential spin-offs according to the series creators.
Back in 2019, a fan asked Modrovich on Twitter if they would consider doing a future series spin-off or movie. She responded with, “Well of course we would.”
Lucifer season 5B and 6 have yet to receive their official release dates. However, Lucifer season 5A is now available to stream on Netflix.
