From Hell and Heaven, it’s been a long road.

Lucifer Season 6 Review

After six seasons, many deaths and many coming back, many trips to Hell, and then to the Silver City, Lucifer finally comes to an end that many may not have seen coming.  I’m trying to be as spoiler-free as possible, which, after this last season is hard to do. And if you have been watching Twitter, depending on your feed, the people of the internet have voiced their opinions on the season, and I agree with most of them.

This season opens where the first season began.  In fact, I had to double-take and check the title to make sure that I accidentally didn’t start all over. Season five ended with the fight between Michael and Lucifer and the aftermath, but season 6 just starts like it never happened.  Until you find out that in typical Lucifer fashion, he is just putting off things and trying to have fun.

If I go too much farther, it will start into a spoiler-laden mix of “and then’s” and “but then’s”. I should say that every character gets their time, even the new ones. We see the gang, and each has their stories that are ongoing and changing. It doesn’t feel like it takes away from the core of Lucifer and Chloe, but it feels full. Yes, we see the gimmick episode, but it fit with the story, and it was a fun poke at the characters.

Saying goodbye is always hard, especially to a show that only got picked back up because the fans had something to say about it.  But I think this is a good way to do so. It isn’t what we expected, however, it felt genuine. The growth of the show is as amazing as the growth of each of the characters.  Of course, we want it to go on forever, but the bittersweet end we got is definitely fulfilling.

Check it out now on Netflix, and if you are new to the Lucifer universe start from the beginning and give er a shot. You will not be disappointed with this show.
