This sixth season will be the last for the fantasy series which stars EastEnders' Tom Ellis as Lucifer Morningstar, otherwise known as the Devil.
On 10 August, the official Twitter page posted to say they 'saved the best for last' and, as expected, fans went into a frenzy.
One wrote: "I'M LITERALLY SCREAMING OMG," while someone else added: "Um. Well. I'm speechless... and I kinda like it."
A third commented: "How are we going to deal? It's going to be a [whirlwind emoji] of emotions and I just can't."
During a panel at the [email protected], Ellis joined executive producers Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich to share a bit more detail about what we can expect from season six.
When asked if the previous series' climax means Lucifer will now have the same powers that God once did, Henderson said: "Good question. I think that's one of the first questions our characters will be asking when we start season six."
Ellis added: "He grew up a lot and he's still in the process of growing up, but I think it's that classic thing of 'be careful of what you wish for'.
"He did convince himself of a lot of things in season five, but when something you think about actually happens, it often feels very different. That's the kind of conundrum Lucifer finds himself in season six."
Modrovich also said: "With Lucifer, it's always one step forward, two or three steps back."
The trio also addressed whether or not Lucifer would continue being involved in cases, with Ellis saying: "Oh, I think it's in his DNA now.
"There may be the odd thing to solve but he's got a lot of mysteries to solve, to be honest, in season six."
While Lucifer may have to hold back on showing up on crime scenes, it turns out Amenadiel will be doing some investigating instead.
Confirming what he'd be up to for season six, Modrovich said of the character: "He will join the LAPD."
Despite sadness from fans that this will be the final season, we should really think ourselves lucky because there was a time when this nearly didn't happen after Fox cancelled the show.
Netflix swooped in to save the day, and we've been gifted three extra seasons of Satan solving murder cases.
