Lucifer season 7 : With 93 shows and six seasons Lucifer has come to the top of the hill.
“This is it, the final season of Lucifer,” announced Netflix prior to when it aired on our screens. “For real this time. The devil himself has become God… almost. Why is he hesitating? And as the world starts to unravel without a God, what will he do in response? Join us as we say a bittersweet goodbye to Lucifer, Chloe, Amenadiel, Maze, Linda, Ella and Dan. Bring tissues.”
This is a sad day for fans, but considering the journey it took to arrive here the faithful fans of the brand shouldn’t get too caught up.
In the beginning, it appeared like three seasons, and then out for the fantasy series , after Fox the initial broadcaster cut the cord. However, Netflix came in to save the day by continuing the show for another two episodes.
There was a bit of uncertainty about when season 6 would be a reality and for some time it seemed like the plan was to have the fifth season to become the final hurrah. However, the TV Gods performed their work and the sixth season, which was the final, was slated for release.
So , yeah, we’re certain we’re sure that Luciferfaithful might love more episodes after this final chapter However, the achievement of getting this far is reason to be happy.
With season 6 available for everyone to see, it poses the question: why is there no season 7?
Talking to Entertainment Weekly in July of last year the show’s the show’s co-showrunner Joe Henderson said that when they were asked to write a new season, they were thrilled to do so but that it would have to be “our last story”.
Co-showrunner Ildy Modrovich has also used the expression “sticking the landing”, which is why you get the impression that for the team behind the show, a continuation would have been detrimental to the work they’ve created over the course of six seasons, and nobody would want that.
Netflix is extremely secretive when it comes to releasing its data, however it’s the way they do things. Lucifer constantly pushes its way to the top 10 most popular tabs quickly speaks to the popularity of it. According to its own data (which are to be taken with a caution) Season 5 first episode was watched by 38 million people, meaning there’s a lack of interest from viewers.
However, it is important to note that the model of Netflix isn’t similar to traditional broadcasters. The streaming giant it’s all about getting new customers as well as maintaining its existing subscribers.
The process of convincing new customers to join is unlikely to happen on an old show than an exciting new show. In addition, production costs typically rise with every new season. So, as much as closing the curtains for Lucifer after the conclusion of season 6 may appear to be a clever move the financial and ratings might certainly played a part as well.
If you’re awfully sad that your favorite show has ended, we definitely wouldn’t put the last cent on the season 6 finale being the last time we’ll be seeing this planet and its main actors. It’s a fact that remakes and reboots have become a part for the course and we’d like to see that be ongoing for quite a while.
