Despite a rocky start in terms of cancellation and appreciation, Lucifer developed a cult following over the course of its six seasons. The show was loved and adored by many. But will the show continue its production or will the fans have to bid bye to their favorite series?
Will there be Lucifer Season 7?
The show was so successful that when Fox canceled it after three seasons, Netflix took it up for a fourth season. But unfortunately, Lucifer’s life was limited, even with its new habitat. Season 6 of the Tom Ellis-led series just concluded, putting the eponymous devil’s narrative to a close. But why isn’t there a Season 7 of Lucifer?
The answer is very simple. The show has not been renewed for a seventh season, making the sixth season its last.
So, Lucifer Season 7 has been canceled.
Why is Lucifer Season 6 the ultimate ending?
Lucifer was supposed to finish after five seasons, with a dramatic announcement about God, according to Netflix’s original script. However, the streamer then changed its mind about the show and announced that it will be renewed for a sixth season. Lucifer was renewed for ten more episodes in June 2020, allowing the show to give its characters a dignified sendoff once and for all.
Those hoping that Netflix would surprise fans with a Lucifer Season 7 announcement should hold their breath. When Season 6 was revealed, Lucifer‘s official Twitter made it clear that the last episode will be “FINAL final.” Since then, the streamers and writers have backed that theory, implying that Lucifer Season 6 is actually the final season for these characters.
Why isn’t Lucifer getting a seventh season?
It all boils down to the creators’ objectives. Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich, the showrunners, came into the series with a plan for when and how they wanted to wrap things up, and they’re adhering to it.
In fact, the couple admitted to Entertainment Weekly that they almost didn’t do it when Netflix asked them to return for ten more episodes. They were happy with how Season 5 ended, and it was only after much thought that they devised a strategy for Season 6.
The overall backdrop
Lucifer Morningstar, a gorgeous and powerful angel who was cast out of Heaven for his disobedience, is the focus of the series. Lucifer, as the Devil, is tired of being the Lord of Hell for millennia, punishing humans. He abdicates his throne in disobedience of his father (God) and abandons his country for Los Angeles, where he owns and operates the Lux nightclub. He meets the attractive Detective Chloe Decker when he becomes entangled in a murder investigation. Lucifer accepts a second request to work with Chloe as a consultant after assisting the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) in solving the crime by leveraging his abilities to seduce individuals into disclosing their deepest desires. And throughout the series, they encounter all sorts of supernatural beings while solving crimes together and developing their relationship.
Lucifer Season 6 ending explained
Season 6 of Lucifer concluded the series with an emotional and heartbreaking finale that finished up the tales of all of the key characters while also giving the Devil his due. After conquering his wicked twin brother Michael, Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis) enters Season 6 set to become God. However, the appearance of Rory Morningstar (Brianna Hildebrand), Lucifer’s future daughter, barred the Devil from rising to Heaven and becoming the Almighty. Instead, Lucifer opted to build a bond with Rory, his kid with Chloe Decker (Lauren German), and figure out why he disappeared from her life.
The Devil rescued Rory from the hands of Vincent Le Mec (Rob Benedict), the hitman who murdered Dan Espinoza (Kevin Alejandro) in Lucifer season 5’s series finale, “Partners ‘Til The End.” Le Mec planned to kill the Devil, but Lucifer intervened and stopped Rory from killing him and becoming her own version of the Devil (complete with Lucifer’s visage). However, Lucifer’s kidnapping and rescue of Rory was the key to why he vanishes in Rory’s future; throughout Lucifer season 6, the Devil has been unwittingly redeeming some of Hell’s inmates as well as assisting Dan’s soul in reaching Heaven. Lucifer understood that his ultimate mission is to return to Hell and aid every cursed soul in breaking free of their Hell loops and achieving redemption in Heaven. But this mission means leaving before Rory is born, and it’s the explanation for why Lucifer vanishes from her life.

Is it possible that Netflix will return to this planet with a spinoff rather than a season 7?
Of course, Lucifer doesn’t require a seventh season to reintroduce viewers to the universe it built. Despite the fact that Lucifer and Chloe’s tales are done, Rory’s (Brianna Hildebrand) presence allows for a spin-off. The story doesn’t go into great detail about her destiny at the end, but it also doesn’t leave her with much to do.
Henderson and Modrovich don’t seem to have any intentions to return to our planet anytime soon, if ever. However, things change, and reboots and reunions are now commonplace. Although a Lucifer Season 7 is unlikely, fans may witness some form of return to this universe. With matters of Heaven and Hell, anything’s possible.
All six seasons of Lucifer are now streaming on Netflix.
