Lucifer season six could still go ahead, despite Netflix announcing season five would be the “fifth and final season” back in June 2019. The online streaming had stepped in to save the show after Fox cancelled the drama after three seasons - and now looks like it may be coming to the rescue of Lucifer fans once again.
In February 2020, Deadline reported Netflix was in talks with Lucifer producers Warner Bros TV about continuing the supernatural drama for a sixth series.
Deadline reported executive producers Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson would need to make a new deal but “would like to do another season.”
Now, TV Line claims co-showrunners Modrovich and Henderson have “closed new deals to remain at the helm” of the sixth series if it is given the green light.
However, the show’s leading man Tom Ellis has not yet signed a deal to return for the sixth series.

“It means so much to me and everyone involved on the show. Night night. I’m knackered. Let’s keep talking.”
However, he has remained mute about the show returning for a sixth series so far.
When the news was announced that season five would be the last, Ellis said it ha been “an utter privilege” to play Lucifer Morningstar.
Posting on Instagram, he said: “I took this selfie on March 17th 2015 just before leaving my trailer to shoot the first scene on the pilot episode of #Lucifer.
“I was really nervous and at that moment I couldn’t have dreamed that we would get to where we are now…
“I have had the most Amazing ride making life long friends and playing a character that I truly Love.
“It has been an utter privilege. More importantly, I want to say YOU the fans have been the cherry on the cake of this whole journey.
