By now, we have a pretty decent idea of the outline of the remaining episodes and they sound like a humdinger. We’ve already met Lucifer’s twin brother Michael (also played by Tom Ellis) and God himself (Dennis Haysbert), and when there are deities of this stature walking around, the story possibilities seem endless.
However, don’t expect the show to undergo another resurrection. In an interview on the Kings of Con: The Podcast, Ellis said that he’s done playing Lucifer after season 6, explaining:
Tom Ellis is currently hard at work filming the sixth and final season of Netflix fantasy series Lucifer. Although the show’s many revivals over the years, including following its cancellation from Fox, have spurred on hopes for a surprise seventh instalment, Ellis confirmed he’s done with the character when the cameras stop rolling.
Lucifer Morningstar (played by Tom Ellis) and Chloe Decker (Lauren German) will soon be on screens again with the anticipated second half of Lucifer’s fifth season.
Beyond that, Warner Bros. and Netflix startled viewers earlier this year by announcing the series would finish with an unexpected sixth outing.
The series was given a new home on the streaming service last year after being cancelled by Fox after just three seasons.
As the urban fantasy drama, based loosely on the character from Neil Gaiman’s Sandman comics, has proven to be one of Netflix’s most popular shows, some fans have kept their fingers crossed for yet another surprise renewal.
Netflix’s hit fantasy drama Lucifer may be going strong with its fifth season, but the series could have been much more short lived. Series star Tom Ellis has revealed his reaction to the show’s original run being cancelled by Fox.
Lucifans’ are currently on the lookout for the second half of season five to arrive on Netflix.
While the adventures of Lucifer Morningstar (played by Tom Ellis) have never been more popular, the series has faced cancellation a number of times over the years.
Although Ellis and the cast are currently at work on the sixth and final season, Lucifer was expected to come to an end with season five as recently as this year.
Moreover, the fanbase was previously thrown into turmoil back in 2018, when original network Fox pulled the plug after just three seasons.
