During an interview with CBR, Lucifer co-showrunner Joe Henderson shares why the series’ last season decided on having only one wedding.
WARNING: The following contains major spoilers for Lucifer’s Season 6, which is now available to stream in its entirety on Netflix.
Despite Season 6 being Lucifer’s final season, there were still plenty of romantic surprises in store for its characters. As Lucifer and Chloe developed an even deeper relationship — upon discovering they’re now parents of an angsty teen named Rory — Maze and Eve decide to take things to the next level. Additionally, Ella Lopez even finds a partner in the sweet Carol.
However, only one of these couples makes their way down the aisle in Lucifer’s final season. During an interview with series co-showrunner Joe Henderson, CBR asked what led the writers to only show one wedding — especially when it seemed like many Luci-fans would expect to see a Lucifer and Chloe wedding — in the Netflix series’ very last episodes.
Maze and Eve previously cemented their relationship in Season 5b — despite Maze’s initial struggles with learning to open up to her partner spotlighted in Lucifer Season 5, Episode 13. Their relationship grew further complications once Maze learned that she had, in fact, grew a soul. Henderson confirmed that after Maze had been through so much heartache that she too deserved the spotlight and so did her romance.
“We talked about it because we knew that the fans would potentially want it,” Henderson shared. “To us, the bigger priority was the Maze and Eve wedding because that did feel like such a wonderful culmination of their arcs. It also just feels like our ending is what is saying that Lucifer and Chloe’s love is eternal in a way that almost supersedes a wedding. One of the things I’m very happy with — and I’m curious to see how fans react to it — is it’s a bittersweet ending. It does end where you want it to end and it was very important to us to always give fans and ourselves not necessarily what we want, but what we need.”
“But that always just felt right to us — the idea that he was a partner for Chloe on Earth and she’s his partner in Hell,” Henderson added. “It’s a partnership of equals. They have met in the middle and found each other and found the joy of working together and being together and living together.”
All six seasons of Lucifer are streaming now on Netflix.
