Since moving from FOX to Netflix, Lucifer has emerged as one of the most popular Netflix Originals around with the new seasons frequently dominating the Top 10 worldwide upon their release. While we’re only a few months removed from when Lucifer season 5 part 2 arrived, anticipation is already building for Lucifer season 6 and fans are eager to find out what’s next!
Although we’d love nothing more than to receive new episodes of Lucifer, the wait for the show’s final season will continue beyond July 2021. That’s right, Lucifer season 6 will not be coming to Netflix in July 2021.
While disappointing, it’s not too surprising for Lucifer season 6 not to be on the list of shows and movies coming in July as season 5 part 2 only just arrived on May 28.
Lucifer season 6 release date
Here’s the good news, Lucifer season 6 has already finished production meaning that the season is in the books and should be in the final stages of post-production. Because of this, Netflix really has a lot of wiggle room with the timing for when it can release the new season. The key will be the timing of when exactly that might be.
Co-showrunner Joe Henderson has openly expressed his optimism in Netflix not making fans wait too long for the sixth and final season to arrive. As he told Word Balloon:
“I don’t think it will push too far into the next year. I don’t think they’ll string it out too long, but I also just don’t know, so don’t quote me on that.”
Like Henderson, we’d love to see Lucifer season 6 arrive sooner rather than later; however, we have to believe Netflix will want to put some space between season 5 part 2 and the show’s final season. Because of this, we imagine Netflix will look to stick to a more standard release plan in putting roughly a year between seasons which should put us on track for a May 2022 release date.
Stay tuned for more news about the Lucifer season 6 release date!
