Did the “Lucifer” makers suspect it? Season 6 is already hinted at in season 5

Originally the 5th “Lucifer” season was announced as the last. We now know that there will be a 6th after all. And although that was not yet certain when shooting season 5, there is already a possible hint of it hidden here.

With “Lucifer” it’s a constant back and forth. After the fantasy crime series was canceled on normal television after three seasons, Netflix saved it – only to announce that after season 5 it will be over. Even an outcry and petitions from the fans did not seem to be able to move those responsible to rethink for a long time.

Only in the run-up to the start of season 5 did they slowly row back, then finally to announce that they were moving away from the original plans and that “Lucifer” would buy a sixth season after all – which should really be the last.

But although the final decision came so late and therefore could not have played a role in the already completed production of the now published first half of season 5, there could have been plans in this direction much earlier. At least a small side note in episode 3 of the current season can be interpreted as an indication of this …

6 seasons for “Lieutenant Diablo”?

In the aforementioned episode, which is very self-deprecating, Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and Chloe (Lauren German) end up after a murder on the set of the fictional TV series “Lieutenant Diablo”, in which the devil solves crimes. So we are faced with an almost parodic mirror image of “Lucifer” himself, including a few swipes at the peculiarities of the series.

Later on, a sentence comes up that makes people sit up and take notice: “I’m not going to spend the next six seasons with a striptease pole as my main prop,” explains the leading actress of “Lieutenant Diablo” (Brianne Davis) at one point.

“I’m not spending the next six seasons with a striptease pole as my main prop,” explains the leading actress of “Lieutenant Diablo” (Brianne Davis) at one point, angrily.

Coincidence or intent?

At that time, “Lieutenant Diablo” was only filmed a few episodes. So Chloe’s TV on 9 movies counterpart simply assumes that it will bring it to six seasons – or maybe just throws that number into the room at random.

Of course, the “Lucifer” makers may have written it quite arbitrarily into the script, but with the eventful series history and the back and forth about another season, we don’t believe that the number 6 was chosen by chance.

Even if there were no corresponding discussions at the time, many of those involved could at least already have wanted another season, which is why this subtle hint was possibly incorporated.

When does the 5th season of “Lucifer” continue?

Regardless of what exactly is behind the above line of dialogue, that “Lucifer” will actually get a final sixth season, has meanwhile been set. The shooting for this should start shortly. When it will appear is unclear, after all, the second half of the fifth season is still pending anyway.

According to main actor Tom Ellis, the remaining episodes from season 5 should be available at the end of 2020 or beginning of 2021, in this country it will still be on Amazon Prime Video *. But we have already thought about what to expect:
