Lucifer: Chris Rafferty Checks In; Clarifies S06 Episode Confusion

Over the past few days, we've been covering production on the sixth season of Netflix's Lucifer as it nears its end. That's included some touching and heartfelt posts from co-stars Lesley-Ann Brandt and Tom Ellis as well as writer Chris Rafferty, who penned the Kevin Alejandro-directed penultimate ninth episode "Goodbye, Lucifer." But some confusion developed along the way with all of this talk of "lasts' that Episode 609 was the last episode of the series (trust us, we just went back to look at our last six posts to make sure we didn't imply that). So Rafferty took to Twitter on Saturday to remind Lucifans that they're working on Rafferty's final written and produced episode of the series- not the show's final episode. The final season still has 10 episodes, with the series finale (no title released yet) written and produced by Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson.

Lucifer: Chris Rafferty Checks In; Clarifies S06 Episode Confusion

For being so patient and understanding, here's a look at Rafferty checking in from a late Friday shoot:

While Lucifans wait for news on the series' return (we mat have given up trying to predict a date), here's a look back at those two special "fan-cam" moments offering brief teases of what fans will be getting when the second half of Season 5 debuts. At the end of the first clip, Chloe Decker wants to know where God (Dennis Haysbert) took his family. In the second clip, viewers get a look back at the first half of the season before a brief look at what's to come- with "dear old dad" God having to ask Lucifer something…

Lucifer, bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, resigns his throne and abandons his kingdom for the gorgeous, shimmering insanity of Los Angeles, where he gets his kicks helping the LAPD…and the savvy detective Chloe Decker in particular. In Part A of season 5, Lucifer's twin brother Michael secretly takes the devil's place on earth while he's back in Hell. Eventually, Lucifer must return and face the mess his brother made with his life. He'll also finally confront his feelings for Chloe, and answer a question fans have been asking since the very beginning: "will they or won't they"?

Last month, Lucifans learned that Merrin Dungey (Big Little Lies, Star Trek: Picard) and Brianna Hildebrand (Deadpool, Tragedy Girls) were joining the cast for its final season. Dungey's Sonya is a no-nonsense uniform cop who forms an unlikely bond with Amenadiel. Hildebrand's Rory is a rebellious, angsty, and ready-to-start-some-trouble angel hoping to follow in Lucifer's footsteps. Small problem. It doesn't take too long for Rory to realize Lucifer isn't exactly the devilish big bro she hoped he'd be.

Speaking of the sixth season, how about some intel on the episodes in the form of titles, directors, and writers? Because that's what the show's writers have offered over the past few weeks. For our first eight chapters, we have (with directors/writers) "Nothing Ever Changes Around Here" (Kevin Alejandro/ Mike Costa), "Buckets of Baggage" (Richard Speight Jr. / Jen Graham Imada), "Yabba Dabba Do Me" (Nathan Hope / Joe Henderson), "Pin the Tail on the Baddie" (Viet Nguyen / Carly Woodworth), "The Murder of Lucifer Morningstar" (Lisa Demaine / Lloyd Gilyard Jr.), "A Lot Dirtier Than That" (Claudia Yarmy / Ildy Modrovich), "My Best Fiend" (Nathan Hope / Julia Fontana), "Save the Devil, Save the World" (DB Woodside / Aiyana White), and "Goodbye, Lucifer" (Kevin Alejandro / Chris Rafferty).
