Just like all of us, the Black Lives Matter movement has also made the entertainment industry reassess their moves. The recent shows to be walking on the path of representation is Netflix’s Lucifer. The makers of the show are aiming to support the movement in their narrative for season 6. Below is what they have to say.
While Lucifer season 5 is just a day away, the season 6 of the show is making headlines today. As per reports, showrunners Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson have come to a conclusion to include the Black Lives Matter in the narrative. Season 6 will have a complete episode dedicated to the same.
Talking to Entertainment Tonight, Lucifer showrunner Ildy Modrovich said, “When we got back to the [writers] room, we started looking at the fact that we’re a cop show and in what ways have we contributed or not addressed the systemic issues of the police department. And we decided we wanted to speak to it. So we’re actually doing a story that speaks directly to it, and we’re super excited about it.”
Joe Henderson has been talking out how the team can include this. The cast of Lucifer has been informed and onboard. Talking about the same, Lucifer co-showrunner, Joe Henderson said, “What we did want to do was speak to the cultural reckoning we’re all going through and, I think, we’ll be continuing to go through, and our place in it and our responsibility to say something.”
Meanwhile, Modrovich, who is penning the special episode does not want it to preach. They want the Lucifer BLM episode to have an emotional touch.
Lucifer season 5 releases on August 21 on Netflix. What do you have to say about this? Let us know in the comments section below.
