Lucifer Season 6: A Bittersweet Farewell

Lucifer Season 6 wrapped up the tale of the devilishly handsome Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis) and his mortal love Chloe Decker (Lauren German). Despite the long-running will they/won’t they relationship between the duo, the story manages to wrap itself in a shocking yet most befitting ending for the series. 

The writers of Lucifer took an audacious step when they introduced Rory (Brianna Hildebrand), a completely new character into the final season. Rory, as it turns out, is the daughter of the star couple from the future, and the future is bleak as Lucifer is absent for the entirety of Rory’s life. Figuring out what happened to Lucifer and why he chose to abandon his beloved family is the main storyline of the season. 

Lucifer season 6 was a trip down memory lane, literally. Throughout the season we are constantly blessed with callbacks to previous seasons, in fact, there is an entire episode dedicated to our characters revisiting memories. It is a reminder that the fun-loving cast, emotional moments and obvious silliness is why we fell in love with the series in the first place. 

Apart from the main duo, Lucifer season 6 gives plenty of attention and love to the supporting characters. Maze and Eve get together, Amenadiel finds his calling and Ella finds someone too. Even Dan finally faces his guilt which wraps up his character arc.

It’s quite surprising that Lucifans got the ending that we did, as the series was cancelled twice. Lucifer was cancelled by Fox after Season 3 but was picked up by Netflix who initially renewed it for two more seasons; before surprising fans with season 6. 

The concept of ‘fate’ and ‘destiny’ is the main theme of the final season. During the final scene of the series, a single line sums up the driving theme of the series; redemption, perfectly. Lucifer states “If the Devil can be redeemed, then anyone can.” 

While the final season might not be what fans expected, it is one we are glad did happen. Every storyline and character arc is wrapped up beautifully. While some fans might not like the ending, one thing is certain; Lucifer and Chloe are partners till the end. 

Final Verdict: 4 stars (out of 5)
