Will There Be a 'Lucifer' Film? Kevin Alejandro on Show's Future

Lucifer, the final season, is available to stream and download on Netflix now. The last ever episode in Lucifer Morningstar's (played by Tom Ellis) story, titled "Til the End," saw the characters of Lucifer receive the happy ending they deserved.

That doesn't mean there aren't countless more stories to be told. Kevin Alejandro spoke to Newsweek about the end of Lucifer and whether there's a future.

After six years and six seasons and a whole load of devilish behavior in between, Lucifer ended. The final season didn't hold back on drama, with twists and turns at every moment, eventually leading to Lucifer's disappearance.

Following a traumatic mission to rescue his daughter Rory (a half-human, half-angel from the future, played by Brianna Hildebrand) from the hands of convicted murderer Le Mec (Rob Benedict), Lucifer recognized his true calling in life in the season finale. Hell needs a "healer" not a leader, and Lucifer was the person to fill the shoes.

Lucifer's ability to help others, in particular preventing his daughter Rory from not killing Le Mec and helping Dan (Kevin Alejandro) make it to heaven, made Lucifer, Rory and Chloe (Lauren German) realize the reason he must leave Earth is to help others.

Rory also realized if her father had not helped "save" her in the present day and then abandon her, she would not become the person she would be in the future, or potentially even exist.

Thankfully, the show ended on a happy note with a flash-forward to the future where Chloe was reunited with Lucifer in hell after she died.

The rest of Lucifer Morningstar's family also had a happy ending: Dan made it to heaven, Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) became God, Ella (Aimee Garcia) started her STEM project, Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) and Eve (Inbar Lavi) got married, and Dr. Linda (Rachael Harris) was raising her son Charlie happily at home.

Despite the finale tying up loose ends, Kevin Alejandro shared with Newsweek that he would be open to a Lucifer spinoff or even better, a Lucifer film.

He said: "100%, of course, I would be up for it [returning]. Absolutely. I think a film would be fun, it would be really cool to see a version of a film of Lucifer up on the screen"

Exactly what a Lucifer spinoff or film would look like is hard to tell, but there are endless storylines to explore.

For example, Chloe and Lucifer helping heal tortured souls could be a focal point, as could Eve and Maze's journey as a married couple on Earth.

Elsewhere, a Rory spinoff would be entertaining for sure, as would one involving a time jump, where we could catch up with our favorite Lucifer characters in the future.

At the moment, there has been no word on a Lucifer film and season 6 has been widely considered the show's "final, final" installment. However stranger things have happened in the show's history. After all, Lucifer has been canceled twice (once by Fox and another by Netflix) and saved in both instances by Netflix. The show also brought back Kevin Alejandro after his character, Detective Dan Espinoza, died in season 5, which at the time, was intended to be the show's final series.

Looks Like It's Really the End

Despite Alejandro's enthusiasm for a Lucifer film, he shared season 6 "felt like this was really the end this time."

He described the entire cast as feeling a "weight go" by season 6, satisfied Lucifer's story had been told.

He explained: "It felt real. It felt like this was really the end this time. I think Lucifer has had a really interesting journey, you know, from the beginning to the very end. And I think by the end of it, we all by Season 6 finally, I think we all just felt this weight go, this is really good. I really do love you but we all were ready to embrace the fact that we had to move on. It was sad and it was as emotional as you would expect it to be for a group of people who've been together for six years for six seasons."

He continued: "I feel like we have responsibly taken a show, taken a story, gave it 150% of our souls, and created something that people not only like but respect, and we're able to close it out in a respectful way so that people can walk away saying: 'I'm glad I invested myself into that show. I love that I went through that journey,' as opposed to: 'That show was really good until Season 7'."

As for that final day on set in March 2021, Alejandro reflected: "It was bittersweet because it was a beautiful moment in our lives, in our time. As in, you don't—you don't get these types of people together too often who get along, respect each other and like what they do, and sometimes it's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and we all got to have that, which I think is beautiful and so that made it hard."

Lucifer Season 6 is streaming on Netflix now.
