Our top pick for September

Lucifer: The Final Season

Tom Ellis plays exiled angel Lucifer Morningstar in this popular fantasy series that follows the former Lord of Hell’s adventures as a nightclub owner and consultant to the Los Angeles Police Department on Earth. Having grown tired of presiding over the underworld, Lucifer has carved out a life of debauchery for himself in LA, only to find himself fascinated by an LAPD detective played by Lauren German. The series’ silly premise shouldn’t work, but it succeeds on the strength of Ellis’ charisma, charm, and excessive amounts of time spent shirtless, which earned it a second life for itself on Netflix after it was canceled by Fox. Its run comes to an end with the sixth and final season, which is shaping up to be the wildest one yet, packed full of supernatural surprises.
