Lucifer Season 6 Updates: Lucifer star Tom Ellis is confirmed to be on-board if the hit series returns for Season 6 on Netflix. TV Line reports that sources confirmed to the outlet that Ellis has officially inked a deal to stay with the show.
There is currently no word if Netflix will bring the show back for a sixth season, as Season 5 has yet to debut, but many seem to feel confident it will happen.
It was previously reported that Ellis had been in the middle of a contract dispute with WB Television, the shows producing studio. Reportedly, Ellis actually did have a deal in place to star in the sixth season of Lucifer but was at risk for being in breach of that contract due to what appeared to be dissatisfaction over the terms of the agreement. Insiders told TV Line, at the time, that Warner Bros. TV had come back and “sweetened the pot” multiple times because “everyone wants Tom to be happy.” However, one of the insiders stated: “there’s a limit, and it’s been reached.”
When Will Lucifer Season 6 be Released?
The show was expected to release by Spring or Summer of 2020. Now it not seems it would be possible though. Due to the present situation across the world, the coronavirus pandemic, production of Lucifer has also been halted.
Moreover, it is also not expected to resume any soon. The show’s release might be set in 2021 for this reason. At the very best it could take a summer release in 2021. Since the show is set to be aired in two parts, the second part of the first season could air in late 2021 or can even be pushed back to as far as 2022.
