Previously in the series, Lucifer was revealed to have a twin brother, Michael, who is hellbent on causing chaos and sowing discord among his brethren. After much infighting between Lucifer, Michael, Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) and even Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt), the brothers’ father, God (Dennis Haysbert), shows up and says to them, “Children, you know I hate it when you fight.” This moment is where Season 5 Part 1 left off, setting the stage for a whole new realm of issues for the ethereal family.
Lucifer was first forged at Fox, where it ran for three seasons before being canceled. Netflix soon swooped in and picked it up, breathing new life into the show with a season order that has since turned into three new seasons. Recently, Brandt revealed that she has concluded filming the show’s sixth, and final, season, writing on Instagram, “Here we are, at the end of our journey you and I. We have laughed and cried, loved and lost and now we say goodbye, you and I,” she wrote, addressing her character.
Brandt also praised “the Lucifer family,” which “has grown over the years [and] extends further than the WB lot.” In her heartfelt message, she said, “It includes our Vancouver crew from [Seasons] 1 [and] 2. Reflecting on the many faces, be it LA or Vancouver, what remains is we have been surrounded [and] supported by some of the most hardworking [and] talented individuals in our business, who’ve been on this crazy roller coaster of cancellations, a formidable fan base and renewals.”
