What is Lucifer season 6 about?
So many aspects of Lucifer season 6 are yet to be announced. No one even knows for sure when the rest of season 5 will get released, so the plot for the sixth season is even more difficult to decipher.
The series as a whole follows the story of Lucifer Morningstar, the Devil & angel who fell from Heaven. He abandons the throne in Hell and goes to Los Angeles, where he runs a nightclub. When a murder takes place outside his club, Lucifer rediscovers compassion & sympathy and accepts a position with the LAPD as a consultant.
The show first aired in 2016 on Fox, but was canceled by the network after three seasons. Netflix picked the show up in 2018 and has continued it since. Even though fans have to wait for new episodes to drop, they get an additional three seasons thanks to Netflix. It will be exciting when Lucifans finally get to watch season 6.
