Lucifer is officially coming back for a season 6 on Netflix, with star Tom Ellis confirmed to have renewed his contract following a few negotiation hitches.
According to Comicbook.com, the actor will be continuing to play the anti-hero and nightclub owner in a grittier setting after Fox cancelled the series in Season 3. The show was later picked up by Netflix and was revived in a multi-season deal. On paper, Tom Ellis continues to carry on the title role until the end of Season 5 (which has still yet to be released). Showrunners Idly Modrovich and Joe Henderson were also given contracts to produce Season 6 with many of the decisions apparently focused on Ellis’ conditions.
So far, Netflix is teasing fans about the show’s return and recently released Season 5’s episode titles.
Tom Ellis’ most recent appearance included a surprise cameo role with John Constantine actor Matt Ryan as part of DC’s Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover. The scene featured Lucifer paying a favour to Constantine as the team visited Lux in Los Angeles.
