After finishing Lucifer season 5 over Memorial Day Weekend 2021, fans are already wondering when the Lucifer season 6 release date will be. Netflix has not announced the release date for season 6, which is the final season of the Netflix original series.
As usual, there are rumors and lots of speculation circulating online. So, we thought it’d be a good time to share some of the rumors and break down what the rumor mill is saying about the Lucifer season 6 release date.
Obviously, fans want to see Lucifer season 6 as soon as possible, but that doesn’t mean Netflix is going to release the season anytime soon.
Lucifer season 6 release date
Netflix has not announced the Lucifer season 6 release date yet, but we think we have a pretty good idea when to expect the season. And, that comes thanks to Lucifer co-showrunner, Joe Henderson.
The cast and crew wrapped Lucifer season 6 in the spring of 2021, so it could possibly be ready for a fall or winter 2021 release date. Will it happen? It doesn’t sound like anyone knows yet.
On a recent episode of Word Balloon, Henderson was asked if Lucifer season 6 is coming to Netflix this year. Here’s Henderson’s full answer, via Word Balloon:
“That is a great question that I, luckily, do not know the answer to. Personally, I hope so. I would love it if it was, but I just don’t know what Netflix’s plans are on that yet. That would be nice.
If it does push, 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.”
I’m not as hopeful that Lucifer season 6 will be released on Netflix later this year. Netflix has a stacked lineup in the fall and winter, and it wouldn’t make sense to bury the Lucifer finale during that time.
Instead, I think it’s much more likely that we’ll see at a release date sometime in early or spring 202. That’s our best prediction right now.
Looking at how Netflix has done business lately, Lucifer season 6 will likely be released on Netflix in 2022. We’ve seen Netflix do some interesting things with shorter gaps between seasons and halves of seasons, but I don’t think that’s going to happen with Lucifer. Those shorter gaps have been for seasons with two parts. For the most part, we’re still seeing about a year between seasons of Netflix shows.
It seems like Netflix is very interested in stretching things out for final seasons. We’re seeing so many final seasons split into two parts, which was the original plan for Lucifer season 5. But, because Lucifer season 6 is already done, I don’t think they’ll make fans wait past May 2022 to see the final season.
That’s our prediction for now! We’ll let you know as soon as we find out more about the Lucifer season 6 release date on Netflix.
