Lucifer season 6: Has Lucifer season 6 been cancelled?
Supernatural comedy-drama Lucifer has had a bumpy ride, with the show experiencing two cancellations to date and one resurrection. Fox cancelled the show after three seasons in 2018 but following successful online campaign and fan outcry, Netflix stepped in to save the show, giving Lucifer two more seasons. Despite season five being confirmed as the last, talks of season six are currently underway but was it all to good to be true? Express.co.uk has everything you need to know about Lucifer season six.
Has Lucifer season 6 been cancelled?
Lucifer season six had not been officially confirmed by Netflix, but there is now the risk that plans for a sixth series have been completely cancelled.
The fears come after there was reported contract difficulties between Lucifer star Tom Ellis and Warner Bros. Television.
There was good news for Lucifer fans in February 2020, when it emerged showrunners Modrovich and Henderson were in talks with Netflix and Warner Bros TV to reverse the cancellation and bring the show back for a sixth series.
Warner Bros TV has already signed deals with Modrovich and Henderson for a sixth series, and deals with the supporting cast were reportedly on the table but signing would depend on Ellis.

However, TV Line recently reported that multiple sources had told the media outlet that talks between Ellis and Warner Bros had come to a standstill.
A source told TV Line: “ “Everyone wants Tom to be happy. But there’s a limit, and it’s been reached.”
Both Netflix and Warner Bros. have declined to comment on the negotiations, as well as a spokesperson for Tom Ellis.
At the moment, a sixth series has neither been confirmed or cancelled, but at the moment the show’s future looks set to be put on hold.
Originally, Lucifer was set to end with what Netflix called the ‘fifth and final season’ this Spring.
The finals series was also bumped up from 10 episodes to 16, which would air in two separate parts on the streaming platform.
The ‘final’ episode of Lucifer, is titled A Chance At a Happy Ending and co-showrunner Modrovich did say in a statement from the writers and cast that they’re giving the story ‘the ending it deserves.’
A segment of the lengthy statement read: “The whole reason they decided to announce that it was our fifth and final season simultaneously is because they know how devoted and passionate our fans (and we!) are and wanted to give y’all (and us!) as much time as they could to accept and process the news.
“And for that, we’re incredibly grateful. But mostly, we’re all beyond grateful that they gave us this new life in the first place. AND a chance to give this story the ending it deserves.”

Modrovich finished: “And, of course… none of that would have EVER happened if it weren’t for YOU. We can truly never thank you enough of that.”
Therefore, regardless of the show’s future, season five is expected to tie up all of the loose ends Lucifer fans are dying to have answered.
Lucifer fans have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts and feelings on a potential sixth series.
One fan wrote: “So in a twist of fate it took millions of Lucifans to once save Lucifer, now it’s down to our main man @tomellis17 we Lucifans know he will make the right choice 🙂 #LuciferSeason6.”
A second fan tweeted: “@tomellis17we saved Lucifer for you when it was cancelled, now please save Lucifer season 6 for us fans. Much love.”
A third fan said: “Lucifer TV show is my favourite. I want to watch season 5. If Tom really rejects season 6 contract, so it’s his choice. Maybe he doesn’t want to film season 6,7 etc. He probably wants to grow as an actor. Maybe he wants new roles. Anyway, I’ll respect his choice.”
