Lucifer Morningstar may be trading in his horns for a halo. Lucifer star Tom Ellis spoke with ET's Katie Krause about the upcoming season of the show and what Lucifer as God may mean for the fate of Deckerstar. When asked about Lucifer seemingly taking on the role of the big man upstairs, Ellis played coy on whether Lucifer is actually God now. 

"Well, I can't tell you that," Ellis told ET. "I think we're left to assume that that's probably what's happening next in Lucifer's life, but I think we learned that maybe it's not that simple in the final season."

This next step in Lucifer's life is not one he's necessarily planned on, but Ellis says as far the next season is concerned, Lucifer's journey has not gone full circle yet.

"Lucifer's journey has not gone full circle yet, which is what I think we would have assumed it had done at this point," Ellis explained. "There's still one part of Lucifer's journey that he hasn't banked on, basically. Not that he was planning this journey out, but I think he probably felt like this was it and then all of a sudden it isn't."

While it may not have been planned for Lucifer, Ellis knew his role as God was coming for some time now.

"Well I'd known what was happening for a while, actually," Ellis revealed. "The weird thing was when we were filming season five, for the majority of it we thought that that was going to be our final season because that's what we were told."

Though a big transition for the demon, Ellis said he was happy with how his character and the show have been left off.

"I was happy with what we did and where we left it because I feel like we left it on, I always like to leave on an upward inflection, like, oh, 'What's happening, just before we go.' So yeah, I was happy with that for sure," Ellis shared.

As far as Deckerstar goes, fans will be seeing a lot of the couple in season 6. At the end of 5B, Lucifer puts the ring on Chloe to save her life and send her back to earth. Of course we noticed he slid it on that special finger. 

"It was very intentional. I mean, obviously it's very symbolic," Ellis shared. "And I think because Lucifer felt like that would be the end of him at that moment in time, that's why it's symbolic in that moment, because it keeps them connected for eternity in that sense. And our audience would never have seen a proposal otherwise."

Being able to admit his love for Chloe after five seasons allowed Lucifer to come back to Earth from Heaven and truly experience love for the first time.

"I think that Lucifer had many, many doubts about what love actually is and what that means to him because he felt he probably never experienced it," he explained. "But I think he's realized through this whole journey that he has experienced love and it's the first time he's been able to admit that to himself when he admitted it to her."

For the first time in the series, Deckstar was able to be together in a way that they never really were before.

"I mean, it takes on officially being together and what does that actually mean? And what does that actually mean when one of you is human, when one of you celestial? What does that actually mean? And that's where we sort of find ourselves exploring in season six," Ellis says about the very-much shipped couple.

Despite all the twists and turns we are used to seeing with this couple, Deckerstar is very much together and very much alive in season 6. So much so that a Deckerstar wedding may be in the works.

"There is a lot of Deckerstar in season 6," Ellis teased. "There's some twists and turns like there always is in our Deckerstar story, but no, Lucifer and Chloe are very much together in season 6. So Deckerstar lives."

A big villain is set to enter in season 6 that could put all that in jeopardy, but now villain is bigger than Lucifer himself, Ellis said.

"As we sort of realized over the seasons, Lucifer's worst enemy really is himself. So someone who is very, very confident, suddenly wracked with doubt. That's part of Lucifer's obstacle, but there is a big villain that comes in in season six and yeah, it's someone that we've already met."

As far as any spinoffs for the series, which is ending after season 6, Ellis is turning to put the horns to bed, for now anyway.

"Look, I always say, never say never because it's cleverer to do that. I think for now I've put the horns to bed," Ellis revealed. "This was very much a story, these six seasons of Lucifer was very much a complete story. So I'm happy to put the character to bed for that. If something came up in the future and it felt like the right thing at the right time, then of course I'll never say never, but certainly for now, this is it people."

Lucifer 5B is streaming now on Netflix.
