*WARNING: Spoilers ahead for Lucifer season 6*
Since it first appeared on our screens back in 2016, Lucifer has managed to strike a balance between an intriguing crime drama and a fantasy epic and the newly released sixth and final season brings that juxtaposing story to an end.
However, it wouldn’t be the final season of a TV show without some high stakes and Lucifer season 6 certainly packs plenty of tension into its 10 episodes, especially when Ella Lopez begins to suspect that the world is about to end.
It’s a mystery that builds throughout the final chapter but just how and why is the world supposedly ending in Lucifer 6?
Lucifer season 6: Release date and plot
Season 6 of Lucifer flew its way onto Netflix on September 10th, 2021, only three and a half months after season 5 concluded in May.
After the previous season ended with Lucifer taking on the mantle of God following an all-out war with evil twin Michael, the new instalment sees the Lord of Hell having doubts about taking up his new throne in Heaven.
As such, the world is starting to unravel and what makes matters worse is that a new arrival in Lucifer and Chloe’s lives threatens to rock the boat even more.
Why is the world ending in Lucifer season 6?
The world is ending as Lucifer is having doubts about becoming God and with no one in Heaven to watch over everything, his siblings have been left to answer prayers, causing chaos in the process.
Throughout season 6, Ella Lopez begins to notice strange goings-on, from minor inconveniences such as missing socks to more supernatural events like frogs falling from the sky, and eventually deduces that the world is ending.
In the end, the world-ending mystery finally leads her to uncover Lucifer’s true identity and it’s safe to say that she isn’t happy that she was kept in the dark for so long.
How is the world saved?
As Lucifer is reluctant to take on the mantle of God, it is eventually decided that the role should be given to Amenadiel.
In the final episode of season 6, Lucifer’s brother ascends to Heaven to take the throne which means that he’s able to keep his wayward siblings in line.
On top of that, to keep this from happening again, he decides that each angel should spend a year or two on Earth to learn about humanity and the intricacies of life so that they can answer prayers better in future.
This also means that Lucifer is able to return to his rightful place in Hell so that he can help those who have ended up there to change and reform themselves.
Lucifer season 6 is available to stream now on Netflix after releasing on September 10th, 2021.
