During San Diego Comic-Con this past weekend, Netflix revealed that Lucifer will debut its sixth and final season on September 10, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The series initially aired on Fox in 2018, yet was canceled after three seasons and picked up by Netflix, which was set to cancel it after season five. However, the network reversed the cancellation in June 2020 and it was picked up for one final season.
The network announced the official release date in a teaser clip. Created by Tom Kapinos (Dawson’s Creek), the series follows Tom Ellis’ (Rush) character, Lucifer, who has become unhappy with his life in hell. He retires to Los Angeles and lives among humans while discovering something unfamiliar within his soul. The series also stars Lauren German (Chicago Fire), Lesley-Ann Brandt (Spartacus), Kevin Alejandro (Adult Night), D.B. Woodside (Pearson), and Rachael Harris (Diary of a Wimpy Kid).
The Comic-Con panel was moderated by The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina‘s very own Lucifer Morningstar, Luke Cook (How It All Began). Lucifer producer Joe Henderson (White Collar), screenwriter Ildy Modrovich (Californication), and star Ellis were all present at the panel where the release date of the show’s sixth and final season was unveiled.
