Lucifer’s 6th and final season is just a few days away from premiering, following on from the huge cliffhanger we left off on as we say goodbye to all our beloved main characters.
The status quo going into season 6 has seen our titular anti-hero become God, while Chloe has resigned from the LAPD and become Lucifer’s consultant.
But it’s not just their professional relationship that will be different as the show wraps up.
Speaking to TVLine, Chloe actress Lauren German said that the final season is about “Chloe and Lucifer really being a team, and there for each other as a couple”.
She explained: “Usually it’s this push and pull [between them], but this last season we really are on the same team.”
Tom Ellis, Lucifer himself, added: “[Season 6 is] a fitting goodbye to our characters [and] leans into everything we’ve earned up to this moment. I hope that [the fans will] be sobbing! And I hope their hearts will be filled with joy at same time.”
“‘Bittersweet’ is a great term for the ending,” German added. “I think ultimately they’ll get what they want to see.”
The writers previously spoke about the decision to shake up the Lucifer/Chloe dynamic, with Chris Rafferty telling Neural Cluster that they “liked the idea of making their partnership even more cooperative, taking turns being the lead, and Chloe acknowledging that Lucifer has really been helping her do her work for the entire show. It felt like nice symmetry as we approached the end”.
He added: “But when we were faced with doing one more season – uh oh! Chloe’s not a detective anymore! What do we do for cases of the week?… If anything, it pushed us to be more creative than ever. Our ‘cases’ will be more personal than ever.”
The sixth and final season of Lucifer drops on September 10 on Netflix.
