"I love them both in different ways," he told Word Balloon in a recent interview. "Season five B is big and epic; season six is sweet and personal. I don't even know how to compare them. They're so wildly different, and yet, so very much of a whole. They're very much part of a story going on."

Going into more detail, he added: "Every season of Lucifer completes the story, but also teases something to come. And that is something we have done every single season. 

"We are wrapping up season five. We are going to finish that story, but like any good serial storytelling, you're going to want to come back for season six and we will give you a pretty good reason."

Lucifer will return to screens with new episodes in May

As fans of the show will know, filming for the Netflix series faced a number of setbacks last year due to the coronavirus pandemic. While the first eight instalments of the series' fifth season were filmed before production shut down and dropped on the streaming platform last August, they only managed to restart filming at the end of last year.

The team subsequently shot the remaining eight episodes of season five and the shortened run of ten episodes for season six back-to-back, with production officially wrapping at the end of March - almost six years to the day that the show began.

"Thank you to every single crew member who has helped bring the story of #Lucifer to life. What a ride."
