New Cast Members, Updates For ‘Lucifer’ Season 6

The second part of Season 5 of the Netflix horror hit Lucifer has yet to air, but plans are already in place for the show’s sixth and final season.

Two new actors in key roles–both with genre pedigrees–will join the ensemble cast for Season 6, as reported by Entertainment Weekly. Merrin Dungey (Star TrekPicard) and Brianna Hildebrand (the spunky Negasonic Teenage Warhead from the Deadpool franchise) have signed on for “devilish” adventures in Lucifer’s final season.

Dungey will portray Sonya, a character said to be a “no-nonsense uniform cop who forms an unlikely bond with Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside).” Hildebrand’s character is described as a “rebellious, angsty and ready-to-start-some-trouble angel” who wants to follow in the footsteps of Lucifer (Tom Ellis).

However, fans will have to wait awhile to see these new characters interact with their favorites on the show. The second half of Season 5 is yet to air–and it looks like anytime in 2021 is the only clue given so far.

And looking ahead to Season 6–again probably starting later in 2021–some information on the first three episodes is now available. The first episode–Nothing Ever Changes Around Here–is directed by Kevin Alejandro and written by Mike Costa, the second–Buckets of Baggage–is directed by Richard Speight Jr. and written by Jen Graham Imada and the third–Yabba Dabba Do Me–is directed by Nathan Hope and written by Joe Henderson.

As a quick recap of Part A of Season 5, Lucifer’s twin brother Michael secretly took the Devil’s place on Earth while Lucifer was down in Hell. Eventually, “Lucifer must return and face the mess his brother has made with his life. He’ll also finally confront his feelings for LAPD Det. Chloe Decker (Lauren German).” Could get dicey for the Devil.

Lucifer–developed by Tom Kapinos and led by showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich–is loosely based on the DC Comics characters in the popular Sandman comic book series.
