Netflix's 'Lucifer' Will Feature a Black Lives Matter Episode

Lucifer‘s upcoming season is set to feature an episode dedicated to the Black Lives Matter movement.

Entertainment Tonight reports that the hot series will tackle the timely topic in season six.

“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,” executive producer Ildy Modrovich shared about the decision to include it.

She added that she does “feel nervous about it because I want to get it right.”

Ildy and co-executive producer Joe Henderson added that they took a while for this episode because it was a very important one to feature.

“We have a lot of voices in the room. We’re a pretty diverse room, so it’s taken a lot longer than most episodes to break because we have talked about everything. There have been many tears shed,” Ildy says. “I can just say everybody’s very passionate about it, so I think that’s what we’re doing to get it right. We’ll probably fine-tune it forever and be working on it until we shoot it.”

Joe continued, “We spoke to [the cast] about it and engaged them in that conversation as well. You might have noticed that our cast has been tweeting about it quite a bit. It’s very important to all of them too. D.B. [Woodside] was one of the people in particular that we really engaged with it — Lesley-Ann [Brandt], with Tom [Ellis]. Normally we pitch them their stories and a little bit of mythology, but this is a thing that almost all of them asked about, so we’ve listened to them and we’ve tried to make it as much of a conversation as possible and a listening exercise.”

Lucifer was renewed back in June for its final season and season five will be out this week!
