Netflix 'In Talks' With Warner Bros About More Lucifer

Netflix 'In Talks' With Warner Bros About More Lucifer

There's a chance the upcoming final series of Lucifer may not be its last one at all, as Netflix is reportedly in talks with series producer Warner Bros TV regarding another instalment, according to Deadline.

The show originally aired on Fox, but it was cancelled after just three seasons. That's when Netflix swooped it and took it off Fox's hands, which came as great news to loyal Lucifer heads.

Thing is, this only extended the programme's run by two seasons, with the streaming service announcing last year there would be a fifth and final series.

At the time of the season five renewal, series executive producers Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson said: "We are so incredibly thankful to Netflix for resurrecting our show last season, and now letting us finish the story of Lucifer on our terms.

"Most importantly, we want to thank the fans for their incredible passion and support. The best is yet to come!"

But now it seems there might be some life in the old dog yet, as multiple reports suggest Netflix isn't quite ready to part ways with Lucifer yet.

For those who haven't seen it, Lucifer is a fantasy-drama that centres on Lucifer Morningstar, or the Devil, who sacks off Hell and moves to Los Angeles to run a nightclub, before going on to become a consultant for the LAPD.

While neither Netflix nor Warner Bros TV have confirmed this, the rumours will at least bring hope to some fans - and lead star Tom Ellis, who plays our titular character Lucifer Morningstar.

When Fox cancelled the show back in 2018, he publicly said how 'gutted' he was by the decision.

He tweeted: "It has been the most amazing experience over the past 3 years playing Lucifer and falling in love with you, the fans.

"It fills me with great sadness to confirm the rumours that some of you have been asking. Fox has indeed cancelled #lucifer I'm so sorry guys. #gutted."

Speaking to Vulture last May about the limbo between Fox and Netflix, Ellis said: "Gosh, it was such a weird time. When I initially found out about the cancellation, I was pretty gutted.

"I've become a fan of the show too and loved the story we were telling. We weren't finished. I was gutted.

"The moment I started drawing peace from the whole thing was the moment when people found out the show had been canceled, and the response within minutes was so overwhelming. And it kept growing and growing and growing.

"Someone from Warner Bros called me to say the company was looking for a new home for the show - just from the fan response.

"I did have a bit of hope, but I've also been in this game long enough where I realised there was, like, a 90 percent chance we weren't coming back. The realistic people in my life kept reminding me of that.

"During that time I went to a lot of fan conventions, and people kept asking me what was happening. I was just like, 'Keep believing and keep doing what you're doing. It's not going unnoticed'."
