Upon its premiere on Fox in January 2016, ‘Lucifer’ opened to a mixed response from the critics because of its hackneyed cop procedural format. Although it picked pace from season 2, Fox pulled the plug on the urban fantasy series after the third season. Following a fan campaign under #SaveLucifer, the series found a new home on Netflix. The subsequent season 4 gained massive popularity and critical acclaim, courtesy of the Tom Ellis’ electrifying performance, the light-hearted take on the fallen angel, and the overall campy vibe. The first half of the fifth season concluded recently and fans are already curious about the sixth season.
Lucifer Season 6 Release Date
The series was renewed for a fifth and initially final season on June 6, 2019. A month later, Netflix ordered more episodes, increasing the episode count from 10 to 16, to be released in two parts. The first part of Season 5 premiered in its entirety on August 21, 2020, on Netflix. It comprises 8 hour-long episodes.
There has been no official update on the release date of the second half of the fifth season. However, it has been reported that the filming for season 5B would resume sometime in mid-October 2020. Still, it is subject to change in case there is a spike in the cases of COVID-19. If it manages to wrap up the filming according to the schedule, Lucifer’ season 5B is likely to release sometime in 2021, on Netflix.
You would be delighted to know that the collective response of the passionate fans on the show’s fifth and final renewal news pushed the network to revive it for a second time in June 2020, this time for a sixth and final season. As far as the release date is concerned, we can expect ‘Lucifer’ season 6 to premiere sometime in 2022, on the streaming giant.

Lucifer Season 6 Plot: What can it be About?
Despite bidding goodbye to Chloe at the end of season 4, Lucifer returns to earth but he doesn’t seem like the Lucifer the earthlings know. Soon, we learn that the Lucifer on earth is actually Michael Demiurgos, Lucifer’s evil twin brother, who’s hellbent on wreaking havoc on Lucifer’s life. Amenadiel reveals the truth to Lucifer, informing him that Michael has threatened to hurt Amenadiel’s son, Charlie.
In the finale of season 5A, Daniel and Lucifer learn that Chloe is held captive by Michael in a cave but Maze rescues her from Michael’s clutches. Amenadiel and Lucifer confront Michael about his wrongdoings and for making Charlie sick. Just when Amenadiel attacks Michael, Maze appears and stands by Michael’s side since he has promised to offer her a soul. In the final moments, just as the three brothers Michael, Lucifer, and Amenadiel gear up for an ultimate showdown, their father God appears, saying “That’s enough!”
Season 5B can pick up right from the ending of season 5A. We can expect, God to teach the trio a lesson for disrupting the harmony in the world of demons and angels. Season 5B can also showcase a new relationship dynamic being formed between the father and children. It will be interesting to see how Chloe would react to the new development in Lucifer’s life and what will it mean for their relationship.
