Tom Ellis Has Signed Up To Lucifer Season 6

Tom Ellis has signed up to star in season six of Lucifer.

Deadline reports that sources close to the show have revealed the Brit actor has agreed to take on the title role for another series.

According to the site, it had been a long slog to get the actor to put his name down for the sixth and final season of the show, but they managed it in the end.

Other returning cast members are onboard for another outing, meaning season six could well be officially announced soon.

LADbible has contacted Netflix for a comment about the announcement.

The show originally aired on Fox, but it was cancelled after just three seasons. That's when Netflix swooped it up 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.

However, the most recent announcement looks like it's actually going to run for another season after all.

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.

We are, however, in for a bit of a wait before we can see season five, with filming currently on hold due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The show began filming in September 2019 and was nearing the end of production - hopefully Lucifer will be back in action before we know it.
