We're still waiting for Lucifer season 5 part 2 to drop on Netflix (when we say 'waiting' we obviously mean 'counting down the days and impatiently pacing around the house.')


But the creative team behind the much-loved series have already moved onto Lucifer's sixth and final outing.

In fact they've almost finished the table reads (the bit where the actors sit around drinking coffee, reading the scripts out loud but wearing their normal clothes).

Showrunner Joe Henderson tweeted today to say that the penultimate read-through had been a teary affair. "Today was the second to last #Lucifer table read... ever... if we got that emotional today, I'm terrified of how much I'm going to cry at the last one..."

This was retweeted by star Tom Ellis, who plays the lead role in the show, who added "I had something in my eye. Honest."

Meanwhile, Lesley-Ann Brandt who plays Mazikeen, tweeted from the set, saying "Last Mazikeen and Lucifer scene ever. So many feels. Let’s do this @tomellis17 @LuciferNetflix"

Hold it together folks!

We don't have an air date for season six yet (or indeed the second half of season five) but we are told the show's final outing will involve a 'giant' new storyline.

Season six was only commissioned after a fan campaign bought Lucifer a last-minute reprieve - it had been announced that the fifth season would be the last, but Netflix gave in to popular demand and gave the programme one last run to wrap up the story.
