Since Lucifer made the switch from Fox to Netflix, the show has gone from strength to strength and returned for its long-awaited sixth season in September 2021.
The new instalment promises big things for the Lord of Hell as he technically became God at the end of season 5 but there are some creases to iron out before Lucifer can really make the role his own.
All of that and more is explored in Lucifer season 6 but just how many episodes will there be in total and is a season 7 likely to follow?
Lucifer season 6: Release date and plot
Season 6 of Lucifer flew its way onto Netflix on September 10th, 2021, only three and a half months since season 5 came to an end in May.
After the previous season ended with Lucifer taking on the mantle of God following an all-out war with evil twin Michael, the new instalment sees the Lord of Hell having doubts about taking up his new throne in Heaven.
As such, the world is starting to unravel and what makes matters worse is that a new arrival in Lucifer and Chloe’s lives threatens to rock the boat even more.
How many episodes in Lucifer season 6?
Lucifer season 6 consists of 10 episodes in total.
Unlike season 5, Lucifer’s sixth season will be released in one binge-friendly bundle, and not in two parts.
This means that all 10 episodes – which even include an adorable animated sequence in episode 3 – are heading our way on September 10th.
Ahead of season 6’s arrival, the titles for the final batch of episodes were released, although tweaked slightly to avoid spoiling anything.
- Nothing Ever Changes Around Here
- Buckets of Baggage
- Yabba Dabba Do Me
- Pin the Tail on the Daddy
- The Murder of Lucifer Morningstar
- A Lot Dirtier Than That
- My Best Fiend’s Wedding
- Save the Devil, Save the World
- Goodbye, Lucifer
- Partners ‘Til the End
Will Lucifer return for season 7?
No, Lucifer will sadly not be returning for a seventh season.
In June 2020, ahead of the release of season 5, Netflix announced that it had renewed Lucifer for season 6 but also confirmed that it would serve as the show’s final instalment.
*Spoilers ahead for season 6*
However, while Lucifer may be coming to an end, we still don’t feel ready to say goodbye to the show’s characters and although this may be wishful thinking on our part, the ending of season 6 does potentially leave room for more.
Lucifer and Chloe end the season reunited in a repurposed hell, with Lucifer helping lost souls reform so that they can get into heaven.
We don’t know about you but we’d love to see what kind of antics the pair get up to in their new role as spiritual therapists.
Another potential route for a spin-off would be to explore Rory’s story, Lucifer and Chloe’s daughter, as she’s got a life of her own to live following the events of season 6.
Whether we’ll ever get to see another show in the ‘Luciverse’ remains to be seen but for now, Lucifer itself is categorically coming to an end.
Lucifer season 6 is available to stream now on Netflix after releasing on September 10th, 2021.
