The Prince of Darkness’ life on Earth was almost ruined by his nefarious twin brother, Michael, in the latest instalment of Lucifer. Before the series returns with a fresh slate of eight episodes on Netflix, some sneak peeks behind the scenes of season six’s production may have sealed his fate.

Sibling rivalry took a nasty turn in the penultimate instalment of Netflix favourite Lucifer earlier this year.

After returning to his throne in the Underworld, Lucifer Morningstar (played by Tom Ellis) left his friends and family vulnerable to all sorts of celestial threats.

Luckily, the devil took a break from his Hellish duties to put a stop to his twin brother Michael’s plans to completely destroy his relationship with beautiful detective, Chloe Decker (Lauren German).

However, before their brawl in the LAPD reached its climax, Lucifer and Michael’s showdown was interrupted by the sudden arrival of their father, God (Dennis Haysbert).

Now the series has welcomed one of its most exciting newcomers to the main cast, long term ‘Lucifans’ could finally get the answers they’ve been looking for over the last five seasons.

In the meantime, Lucifer, Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) and Mazikeen (Lesley-Ann Brandt) still need to figure out what to do with the devil’s pesky evil twin, Michael.

Popular fan theories suggest the twins will make a simple reversal, sending Michael down to the underworld to replace Lucifer on Hell’s throne.

This would leave Lucifer free to enjoy his new life with Chloe, a romance for the ages that has certainly been a long time coming.

Alternatively, fans’ reactions to new villain Michael have been so positive, some have gone so far as to petition multi-faceted star Tom Ellis to continue his dual role.

Either Michael could see the error of his ways and make the occasional guest appearance as an ally in season six, or he could double his efforts and return as the endgame baddie for the whole series.

Whatever happens, now the series has overcome its extended delays since the outbreak of coronavirus, the show’s sneak peeks from behind the scenes have been providing some vital clues.

A new post on Twitter from showrunner Ildy Modrovich has once again sparked imaginations for what could go down in the next season.

Tagging the new pic ‘Just another day on set’, the BTS shot shows Modrovich in the foreground, socially distanced from Lucifer’s leading man, Tom Ellis.

Also featured is Modrovich’s co-showrunner, Joe Henderson, both of whom have continued their run as head writers into the series’ sixth and final season.

As filming continues, this is just the latest post with no sign of season five villain Michael anywhere to be seen.

Of course, Netflix and Warner Bros. Television will be keeping plot details close to the chest, but Michael’s absence has sent flags flying amongst fans who were keen to see him return.

Although, one fan offered a vital reminder that not everything witnessed in production photos is set in stone for the next season, as we still haven’t had a sight of Chloe star Lauren German.

They commented: “Thank you for sharing Ildy! But, would you kindly please please post a pic of Lauren from season six next? Like anytime soon?”

Netflix have yet to confirm release dates for Lucifer’s upcoming seasons, so there’s still plenty of time for further leaks and clues from the set to emerge and give fans a sense of what’s to come.

Lucifer Season 5, Part 1 is available to stream on Netflix.
