D.B. Woodside Returning For ‘Lucifer’ Season 6 As Actor, Director

There’s nothing like a heavenly family reunion–even if it only happens on a Netflix TV series.

D.B. Woodside–who portrays the angel Amenadiel on the popular Lucifer series–this week said he will return for the show’s sixth season, not only as an actor, but also as a director, according to cbr.com.

It previously was announced that the show will return for a sixth (and final) season–as reported here in Horror News Network–and now it’s confirmed that Woodside will again play Amenadiel, the older brother of Tom Ellis’ Lucifer, and will also get behind the camera for one episode.

Woodside first spread the news of his return on his Twitter page. “Happy to announce that I will be returning to Lucifer for Season 6,” he wrote. “Additionally, I will be directing an episode for our final season. This is a beautiful cast. We stand by each other. We fight for one another.”

Ellis replied on his Twitter page with: “Yes, brother! Utterly delighted and excited to get back alongside you, both in front of and behind the camera.”

As fans of the series know, Woodside’s character has been a valued cast member since the first season. His angel Amenadiel has the thankless job of trying to convince Lucifer to return to his hellish throne.

The show’s main storyline follows Lucifer, the erstwhile Lord of Hell, as he leaves his fiery realm for the wilds of Los Angeles, where he opens up a nightclub called Lux and hobnobs with the LAPD, in particular with Det. Chloe Decker (Lauren German).

The series–led by showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich–also stars Rachel Harris as Dr. Linda Martin, Kevin Alejandro as Det. Dan Espinoza, Lesley-Ann Brandt as Mazikeen Smith and Aimee Garcia as Ella Lopez. The show is produced by Warner Bros. Television and was developed by Tom Kapinos.

Lucifer--based on the character from DC Comics’ Sandman comic book series created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg–premiered on Fox in 2016 and ran for three seasons before being cancelled.

Netflix then picked up the show and streamed the 10-episode fourth season last year. Season 5–which debuts on Netflix Aug. 21–was initially supposed to be the final season but, after lengthy negotiations, the show was renewed for a sixth season.
