Lucifer fans are eager to know if the popular Netflix show will be returning for a seventh season.

Hit urban fantasy drama Lucifer had a rocky start before enjoying consistently good reviews and building a cult following during its 6 year run. Based on the DC Comics character Lucifer Morningstar, the occult figure was first introduced to comic book readers in The Sandman series. As the DC interpretation of the devil played by Tom Ellis, Lucifer has left hell behind to run the Lux nightclub in Los Angeles, also acting as a consultant to the LAPD. 

Netflix viewers have no shortage of fantasy and sci-fi horror viewing available, with Stranger Things season Volume 2 (opens in new tab) breaking some streaming records. Also a comic book adaption, the Umbrella Academy season 3 (opens in new tab) recently came to a dramatic conclusion with all 3 seasons available to stream. Delving into a further DC Comics universe, The Boys season 3 (opens in new tab) is coming to what is set to be an explosive conclusion for this season of the Amazon hit.    

 How many seasons of Lucifer is there? 

There are currently 6 seasons of Lucifer available. The first 3 seasons ran in the US on Fox. The first season received mixed reviews, and despite seasons 2 and 3 seeing an improved critical response, Fox cancelled it after season 3 came to an end. Seasons 1 - 3 then made their way to Amazon Prime Video for a time, when it appeared the show was over for good. 

Netflix then picked up Lucifer for a further 2 seasons, and its popularity exploded. Netflix planned to end the series after season 5, changing their minds and announcing a further 6th season.

It was Netflix’s most popular original streaming show for 2021, topping the charts at the number one spot for the year. This equates to collectively racking up 18.34 billion minutes of viewing time. 

Warner Bros. Television who are involved in the production and distribution of the show, revealed their joy at the show’s popularity. Sharing a post to Twitter, they said “Big congrats to #Lucifer on being @Netflix’s #1 most-streamed original series of 2021 in the US! We owe our fans a huge thanks for raising some hell when it comes to the streams”.

Will there be a season 7 of Lucifer? 

No there is no season 7 of Lucifer planned, as season 6 is the final season of the show. In September 2021, Netflix (opens in new tab) confirmed that season 6 would be the final season. 

They said “After six seasons of solving crimes on Earth, resolving drama in heaven and hell, and making all the mischief one could desire, Lucifer Morningstar finally found his true calling in the creatively ambitious sixth season of Lucifer. In the final 10 episodes, Lucifer wrestled with whether or not he actually wanted to be God, a matter that became increasingly complicated in the wake of the arrival of his and Chloe’s adult daughter from the future.”  

Commenting on Tom Ellis’s Instagram picture announcing the arrival of season 6, one fan said that they weren’t ready for the series to end, expressing hope that there could be a follow up film. Multiple fans agreed that they still had hope Lucifer would continue in some form.
