Lucifer star D.B. Woodside is refuting a report indicating Lucifer season 6 will consist of a mere 8 episodes. Here’s what we know about the final season.
It seems there is still hope that Lucifer‘s final season will consist of more than eight episodes after all!
While little is known about the final season of Netflix’s fan-favorite drama, fans have been holding out hope that Netflix might choose to cap off the show’s run with another larger season. Those hopes seemed to be dashed when TVLine reported the final season would consist of a mere eight episodes; however, it seems their sources might not have been quite as correct as they anticipated.
Update: D.B. Woodside confirmed Lucifer season 6 will be 10 episodes!
D.B. Woodside hints Lucifer Season 6 episode count will be higher than eight episodes
Having caught wind of the TVLine report, Lucifer star D.B. Woodside took to Twitter to weigh in with his thoughts on the news. Interestingly, Woodside did not jump in to show support for the story but rather seemed to call out the validity of the report.
“Ummmm…. I don’t think that’s correct TVLine,” Woodside wrote on Twitter reacting to the report’s suggestion that Lucifer season 6 would be the show’s smallest season yet.
Although Woodside did not directly correct TVLine in sharing any information on season 6’s true episode count, his tweet seems to rule out an eight-episode farewell season — which is honestly something we can all celebrate!
Sure Lucifer season 6 might be a bonus season of sorts, but after the many hurdles the show overcame to secure its sixth season ending the show deserves to end its run with at least a standard 10-episode season. Woodside’s comment also seems to support a recent interview from co-star Tom Ellis which suggested the show’s final season would consist of 10 episodes.
Of course, we’re still holding out hope Netflix will surprise us with a 17-episode season which would allow Lucifer to hit the coveted 100-episode mark.
