The Prince of Darkness may rise again, as Lucifer just may come back to Netflix for a sixth season.
Lucifer was, of course, originally a Fox show that followed the adventures of Lucifer himself after he quit being the lord of Hell and opted to run a nightclub in LA. The show is loosely based on a series of the same name from Vertigo comics which itself was a spin-off of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman series. The television show ultimately ran for three seasons before being canceled by Fox.
Netflix would eventually pick up the show and continue it for its fourth season. Lucifer’s fourth season was made available for streaming in May of 2019. It was announced that the fifth season would be the last one produced by Netflix. However, a new report indicates that may not be the case.
According to a report from Deadline, Lucifer executive producers Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson are attempting to craft a new deal with Netflix that would allow them to continue the show. The plan is reportedly to put the show back into production by September. Unfortunately, it did not say how close the Lucifer producers and Netflix were to reaching a deal nor did it say if this proposed sixth season would be its final.

Tom Ellis’s Lucifer was last seen on the Crisis On Infinite Earths crossover event. In it, he helps Diggle, Mia, and Constantine in Earth-666 to gain entry into Hell in order to retrieve Oliver Queen’s soul and restore it to his body. There was some indication that Lucifer and Constantine had a history but the appearance did give away any details.
The first four seasons of Lucifer are now available to stream on Netflix.
