The sixth and final season thrilled Netflix subscribers this year by bringing the crime-solving devil and his detective partner’s Biblical adventures to a satisfying close. Now, Lucifer has been recognised by fans as the top science fiction or fantasy series of 2021, and some of the stars of the show have been thanking their devoted followers with heartfelt Twitter and Instagram posts.
Lesley-Ann Brandt sent out a touching tribute to ‘Lucifans’ after Lucifer bagged the coveted People’s Choice Award on Tuesday night.
She wrote: “I’m in Paris and can attest to our fans being the absolute best, worldwide.”
Not only is the series adored in the US and UK, but its international success has frequently shot it to the top of the Netflix charts. The second half of season five, released earlier this year, drew in nearly two billion viewing minutes in its week of release.
Fans’ devotion to the series has saved it from cancellation multiple times and has now led to Lucifer’s first win at the People’s Choice Awards.
The series’ co-showrunner Joe Henderson also joined Lesley in thanking viewers for their continued support. He exclaimed: “We won!!! Thanks to everyone who voted for #Lucifer for the People’s Choice Awards!!!!
“What an incredible way to wrap up the show!”

Viewers were saddened to see Lucifer Morningstar (played by Tom Ellis) and Chloe Decker (Lauren German) bring their journey to an end, but the series could have been axed for good after a three-season run on Fox. Thankfully, Netflix foresaw the show’s popularity and revived the devilish hero for three more instalments starting in 2017.
Lesley’s co-star Inbar Lavi, best known as the first woman Eve, contributed her thanks in a heartfelt post on Instagram.
“Thank you @peopleschoice for this incredible honour, I wish I could’ve been there!!!” she wrote.
Inbar continued by thanking Lucifer’s millions of worldwide fans for giving the show a second chance.
“WE people made this show FOR ALL people & it was brought (back) to life BY YOU PEOPLE,” she wrote.
Finishing with a quote from Abraham Lincoln, she added: “We the people, by the people, for the people.”
Lucifer was previously nominated at the awards as the best crime series in 2017.
This year’s musical episode, Bloody Celestial Karaoke Jam, was also nominated for Best Choreography at the 2021 Emmy Awards. Plus, leading man Tom Ellis won the Bisexual Representation Awards for lead actor two years in a row in 2017 and 2018.
Sadly, Lucifer has officially come to an end, but the show’s fans can certainly expect big things from its cast and creators still to come.
