The wait is finally over for the fans of Devil… God now. The sixth and final season of the Lucifer series has a release date at last and it is just a few blocks away. A teaser trailer is also released before the final episodes, which is telling the date of the finale’s arrival. This first footage is revealed at the Comic-Con International which featured Tom Ellis, and the producers of the show: Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich. It has also been confirmed that the show’s final batch of episodes will arrive on Netflix on September 10, 2021.
The teaser trailer has a lot of snippets, majority of them having footage from Lucifer seasons 1–5, essentially serving as a recap for the various characters’ journeys thus far. The teaser is touched by the moments which fans love the most. Giving us a spoiler ultimately, the trailer harkened back to the pilot, with The Devil-turned-God pulled over by the very same officer. After declaring it to be his “last night in L.A.,” his famous flask in hand, Lucifer drove off. During the Comic-Con the three cast and crew members also revealed that this series will have a number of surprise returns and new additions. They meant that there will be a figure which is not unknown but it has not visited the show yet. With Maze and Eve’s relationship issues, it can be considered that Adam will be there to surprise us. Who will be playing him? Well, this question cannot be answered now as the creators are maintaining a high security to build up suspense among fans.
During the show’s panel, actor Ellis revealed that he hopes fans will enjoy being surprised during this final season.
“We spoil a lot in our trailers and we like to do that because we like everyone talking. But this is the final season,” he said, according to IGN. “We’re trying to keep our hands really close to the vest. This is the last year that we have secrets [and] can surprise people.”
About the ending of this much-loved series, screenwriter Chris Rafferty has spoken about the challenges, saying that his “number one goal” was finishing the show in a way that fans would enjoy and to help them “find some sense of peace by the time it’s over”.

B. Woodside as Amenadiel, Aimee Garcia as Ella Lopez, Rachael Harris as Dr. Linda Martin, and Kevin Alejandro as Detective Dan Espinoza.
