Lucifer has premiered the first half of its fifth season on Netflix, and there is a lot more left of the series for its fans. There’s the second half of season five (eight episodes) and a sixth and final season (10 episodes) after that. Production on the season five finale wasn’t completed due to the Coronavirus, but the cast will finish it before starting on season six.
“I had a Zoom meeting with the writers last week, so I got a complete outline of Season 6. It’s interesting because obviously we thought Season 5 was the final season for pretty much the majority of the time. So we were headed in a particular direction and we spent a lot of time thinking about what the end of our show would be. And then Netflix said, ‘You want to do some more?’ And we said, ‘OK, let’s just hold on a second.’ But basically, where we finish our show in Season 6 is where we were going to finish in Season 5 — but we obviously got another story to tell in between as a breaking off point. There’s now 10 episodes of another story that then ties in and comes back to where we were going to finish it. That’s what I can tell you.”
Ellis did not know when production will resume. The series had five or six days left to shoot on the fifth season finale when production was shut down.
