The TV series Lucifer, which began on Fox before moving to Netflix, is coming to an end after six seasons with enough twists and turns to warrant a seventh season. Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis) made some life-altering decisions, with Chloe Decker (Lauren German) by his side every step of the way, that affected, reverberated, and caused consequences for everyone around him, in ways that were heartwarming, bittersweet, and long in coming.
Chloe and Lucifer had a happy ending after saving their time-traveling, half-angel adult daughter Rory (Brianna Hildebrand), but the reunited family had to go and find out why Lucifer abandoned his daughter in the future.
Finally, the redeemed fallen angel found his purpose: helping damned souls in Hell break their loops and reach Heaven.
In addition to missing Rory’s childhood and Chloe’s human life, Lucifer fears that Rory will have to go through all of the trauma she has already experienced in the future, without knowing why her father abandoned her. It’s only because Rory pleaded with Lucifer and Chloe that the Devil agreed to go back down below. She tells Lucifer and Chloe that she does not want them to change a thing they’ve done to bring them to this point because she does not want to change in any way and knows she’ll be with them again one day.
In the series’ final moments, we see Chloe living out her days on Earth with her daughters Trixie (Scarlett Estevez) and Rory, growing old and dying in front of Rory, and arriving in front of Lucifer’s therapist-like office modelled after Dr. Linda’s (Rachael Harris), where he sees patients in Hell.
Although a seventh season appears unlikely, stars Tom Ellis and Lauren German are open to the possibility of a feature-length Lucifer project in the future.
Lauren revealed her “fantasy” for Deckerstar now that the show has ended, telling TheWrap that she’s secretly hoping for a “Naked Gun/Airplane-style Lucifer movie.”
“My fantasy is that we shoot a Lucifer movie, but in the style of Naked Gun and Airplane! So if we could ask the fans if they are okay with a Naked Gun/Airplane-style Lucifer movie,” she said. “But no, I mean, Tom says it so well. How do you say it, muffin? It’s the right time to say goodbye.”
In addition to agreeing on the possibility of a movie and the series ending at the “right time,” Ellis stated that he believed the show had reached its natural endpoint.
“It does feel like the right time. Never say never, and all of those things, but this feels like, this incarnation of these characters in this show, this feels like this is the right time to finish,” he said. “Will we ever reprise these roles again? I don’t know. I don’t know. But at least the movie sounds fun in the future.”
“Heartbreaking” as Deckerstar’s path has been, both Lauren German and Tom Ellis believe it was necessary.
