Netflix Is Bringing Back ‘Lucifer’ For Season 6

Hell won’t freeze over for the Devil anytime soon. Lucifer–the popular Netflix series–officially has been renewed for a sixth season.

The streamer had said it would end the horror series after the upcoming fifth season–slated to kick off Aug. 21 as reported here in Horror News Network–but cooler (or hotter?) heads prevailed and Lucifer Morningstar will return for a “final final” season, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The show’s star, Tom Ellis, had already signed on earlier this year for a sixth season, and now he–and the rest of the cast–have someplace to play following their Season 5 adventures.

The Netflix Twitter account announced the renewal by quipping: “The Devil made us do it. Lucifer will return for a sixth and final season. Like FINAL final.”

The series–produced by Warner Bros. Television and developed by Tom Kapinos–started off on Fox in January 2016 and ran for three seasons before being cancelled and then resurrected by Netflix in 2018 for a 10-episode fourth season.

As fans know, the show–led by showrunners Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson–follows a bored Lucifer (Ellis) as he leaves the netherworld for Los Angeles, where he opens a nightclub called Lux, acts as a consultant for the LAPD and becomes involved with Detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German).

The show–based on characters appearing in DC Comics’ Sandman title–also stars Rachael Harris, D.B. Woodside, Lesley-Ann Brandt and Kevin Alejandro.
