Lucifer season 5 premiered in August 2020, so we know there are more than a few Lucifer fans hoping Netflix releases Lucifer season 6 in August 2021.
In the past, Netflix has released new seasons of Netflix shows about a year apart, so that hope was warranted. Unfortunately, Netflix has announced the full list of new Netflix shows and movies coming in August 2021, and Lucifer season 6 was not on the list.
To be fair, most fans were not expecting Lucifer season 6 in August, although season 5 premiered during the month last year.
We shared our thoughts on the Lucifer season 6 release date below.
Lucifer season 6 release date
Netflix has not announced the Lucifer season 6 release date yet. To make matters worse, Netflix has not announced a release window for the final season of the Netflix original series either.
That’s pretty much the norm of Netflix. We’ve learned a lot of release dates, release months, and release windows recently, so we’ll just have to wait and see what Netflix has planned for Lucifer season 6.
At the time of publishing, it looks like Lucifer season 6 could be released at the end of 2021 at the earliest. There were some rumors that a Christmas special could happen in season 6, which would set up nicely for a December 2021 release date. That’s probably the earliest Netflix would release the season.
It’s very rare for Netflix to release new seasons less than six months apart. Lucifer season 5 part 2 was released at the end of May, so six months later would be the very end of November 2021.
It’s much more likely that we’ll see Lucifer season 6 in early 2022. Netflix will want to wait and allow as many fans to watch season 5 as possible before the final season is released. We rarely see new seasons six months apart, and that’s what would have to happen for Lucifer season 6 to be released later this year.
Obviously, we want to see Lucifer season 6 immediately, especially with how season 5 ended.
We’ll let you know more about the season 6 release date when we find out!
