‘Lucifer’ Star Inks New Deal For Possible Sixth Season

It looks like the Devil may not be down and out, after all.

Fans of the Netflix supernatural thriller Lucifer got some good news this week when series star Tom Ellis signed a new contract, so hope for a sixth season stays alive.

Ellis–who plays Lucifer Morningstar on the show–joined the rest of his castmates as he signed on for another round of shows, following lengthy negotiations, as reported by Deadline.

The series–which aired on Fox for three seasons before being cancelled and then resurrected on Netflix for two additional seasons–is produced by Warner Bros. Television, with Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson acting as executive producers.

Nothing is written in stone at this writing, but it would appear the pieces are now in place for a sixth season for Lucifer.

But first, the show needs to complete filming Season 5, which was interrupted back in March by the COVID-19 crisis. Plans had called for production on a possible Season 6 to start this September.

Lucifer–which has already had a healthy run of 77 episodes–is based on characters from DC Comics created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for the popular Sandman book. Along with Ellis, the show stars Lauren German, Rachael Harris, DB Woodside, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Aimee Garcia, Tricia Helfer, Scarlett Estevez and Kevin Alejandro.

The main storyline highlights Lucifer (Ellis), the Lord of Hell, who leaves his devilish domain for Los Angeles, opens a nightclub called Lux and frequently consults with the LAPD. Just another day in LaLa Land.
