Lucifer Star Tom Ellis Confirmed to Return for Season 6
| May 29, 2020

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.

A Season 6 would continue plot lines supposedly left as a final conclusion to Lucifer’s quest for redemption. However, the final episode might leave a cliffhanger in order to pave the way for new arcs and gives the series a chance to wrap up for good.

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.
