After six seasons and a cancellation hiccup along the way, Lucifer has finally concluded, ending on exactly the “bittersweet” moment the cast had previously promised.
In terms of the series, Lucifer’s finale was as closed a book you can get in television these days, with – spoiler! – Lucifer Morningstar and Chloe Decker eventually reuniting in Hell after Chloe’s death from old age on Earth.
A seventh season looks unlikely, but stars Tom Ellis and Lauren German are at least open to the idea of a feature-length Lucifer project in the future.
Opening up about her “fantasy” for Deckerstar now that the series has ended, Lauren told TheWrap that she’s secretly hoping for a “Naked Gun/Airplane-style Lucifer movie”, because why not?
“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…
“But no, I mean, Tom says it so well. How do you say it, muffin? It’s the right time to say goodbye,” she said.
In agreement about both a potential movie and the series ending at the “right time”, Ellis added that he believed the show had reached its natural endpoint.
“It does feel like the right time,” Tom said. “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.
“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.”
The ball’s in your court, Netflix.
