“All bad things must come to an end.” On July 24, San Diego Comic-Con had the Netflix Geeked: Lucifer virtual panel. Moderated by Luke Cook, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina’s Lucifer Morningstar. Also, the panel featured Tom Ellis, Lucifer’s Lucifer Morningstar. The Netflix devils started off the panel, then Cook adds showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich. In the panel, they discuss season 5, the 6th and final season of the series, and the final season’s release date. Netflix also released a Lucifer Season 6 teaser trailer with the release date as well.
Cook started out asking how could they kill off Dan, played by Kevin Alejandro. Henderson shared:
Kevin Alejandro actually pitched us him dying because he’s like, ‘It’s the last season, and everyone has grown to love this character. We were in early goings-on and it sort of stuck with us as we went on. So it’s Kevin’s fault, really.
They also discussed the musical episode from season 5 and that they got most of the songs they wanted. When Cook asked how Ellis prepared for the musical episode and if he was a musical theater man, Ellis had a lot to say:
I love music. I’ve never done musical theater, but that’s mainly because you’re sort of forced to make a choice if you go to drama school here you’re like ‘either do straight acting or you do musical theater’ and I went and did the straight acting and so I lost music in my life for quite a bit of time and it was this show that brought music back for me and it made me fall in love with singing again. So by the time we got ‘round to the musical episodes, I mean I felt like a won a competition every day I went to work. It was like this is ridiculous! I get to sing and dance with all these people everyday?
After showing the first teaser, Cook asked if Lucifer will have all of God’s powers, Henderson shared:
Good question and I think that will be one of the first questions that our characters will be asking when we start season 6.
Cook asked Ellis if Lucifer will still solve crimes. Ellis said:
Oh, I think it’s in his DNA now. There may be the odd thing to solve, but he’s got quite a few mysteries to solve, to be honest, in season 6.
The panel was a lot of fun and I can’t wait for Lucifer Season 6. This series is so exciting and it will be sad to see Lucifer go. Although, it’s always good to end appropriately instead of dragging out a show to where it no longer makes sense.
What did you think of the teaser and the panel? Are you looking forward to the final season? Let me know in the comments.
