The sixth and final season of Lucifer has a new poster, featuring a fiery homage to the title character’s hellish heritage.
The official poster for the Netflix series was shared by TVLine and bears the slogan, “All bad things must come to an end” under the flaming title logo. Lucifer himself, played by Tom Ellis, is at the center seated in a leather chair, with Lauren German’s Chloe Decker standing behind him. In spite of the background of the image suggesting Hell, these poses may be a reference to the new roles that the two lead characters have taken on: Lucifer is now God, and Chloe is his consultant…and possibly the proverbial “power behind the throne.”
The rest of the main cast is also present in the poster: D.B. Woodside as Lucifer’s brother, the angel Amenadiel; Lesley-Ann Brandt as the demon with a soul, Mazikeen; Rachael Harris as psychiatrist Linda Martin, and Aimee Garcia as forensic scientist Ella Lopez. Notably, Kevin Alejandro’s Dan Espinoza is shown with equal standing to the others, although his character was killed in Season 5.
Based on the DC/Vertigo Comics character of the same name created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg, Lucifer originally aired on Fox, which canceled the show after three seasons. Netflix revived Lucifer for Season 4, which premiered in 2019, and has kept the show since then. Season 5 was originally announced as the final one, though the show was ultimately renewed again and will close with Season 6.
Lucifer follows the Devil on a vacation from ruling Hell as he attempts to understand humanity and his place in it. The Season 5 finale brought some major changes for him and for the entire world when he took up the mantle of the universe’s ruler after it was vacated by his father, God. Even the genre of Lucifer will see a change, as Chloe has left her career as a detective, which was the basis of the procedural format that the show has used since its beginning.
The release date of Season 6, Sep. 10, was announced during Lucifer‘s Comic-Con@Home panel, along with a nostalgic look back at the past five seasons and a short clip that provided a peek at the ex-Devil’s new life.
With the sixth and final season of Lucifer on its way to Netflix, a new poster has been revealed showing the whole cast gathered in an inferno.
