The Hellfires continue to burn as it looks like Lucifer lead Tom Ellis has been locked in for Season 6. Fans already know Netflix has renewed Lucifer for a ‘final’ season of 16 episodes, but is this really the end?
While the DC comics adaptation had a rocky start and lasted just three seasons over on Fox, Netflix swooped in and picked up the supernatural drama for two more seasons. Rumours of a sixth have been smoldering for a while, and now, it looks like we’re even closer.
Tom Kapinos’ series follows the Devil himself. Leaving the warmth of Hell behind him, Lucifer moves to Los Angeles, sets up his own nightclub, and becomes a consultant to the LAPD. Even though no show can last forever, TV Line reports Ellis has signed an extended contract deal that would cover a potential Season 6.
The latest news comes just days after the same site claimed showrunners Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson were penning deals to return for another run of episodes. It’s important to note nearly all of Ellis’ co-stars already had extended contract deals, meaning the lead was a missing puzzle piece of the whole thing.
Despite many expecting Lucifer to have a definitive ending with Season 5, Modrovich already teased there’s more to come.
