Is it true that Tom Ellis is being replaced by Ian Somerhalder in ‘Lucifer’ Season 7? Would the devil allow such disruption of his powers?
‘Lucifer’ is a crime thriller that narrates the story of “the Devil” who has returned from hell and resides in LA. Netflix has recently confirmed that ‘Lucifer’ Season 6 is on its way. Meanwhile, there are talks that season 7 might also be up on the cards. Over the past few months, there has been a lot of confusion among the fans regarding the male lead of the show. Lucifer Morningstar, played by Tom Ellis, has found love with a global audience and the rumours that Ian Somerhalder will replace him as the lead are making the fans restless.
Undoubtedly, Ian would be a treat to watch on the screens, as is clear from his role as Damon in ‘The Vampire Diaries’, but Lucifer Morningstar? That’s a character only Tom Ellis can do justice to. So, is Tom really leaving the show? Will he be replaced by Ian? What’s the truth? Let’s find out!

‘Lucifer’ Season 7: Is Tom Ellis being replaced by Ian Somerhalder?
There have been speculations on social media that Tom Ellis – the male lead of the popular Netflix show ‘Lucifer’ – might get replaced by Ian Somerhalder due to his contract negotiations with the production house. However, Netflix has not announced any plans to remove Ellis. While Ellis fans breathed a sigh of relief, Ian’s fans were left disappointed. It’s no surprise that people have come to love Ian Somerhalder, popularly known as Damon Salvatore from ‘The Vampire Diaries’, and would love to see more of him on screen.
There is yet no confirmation about how and where the rumours began, but as it turns out, there is absolutely no truth attached to them. In fact, after Ian’s show ‘V Wars’ was cancelled after the first season, he had reported that his plans won’t include working with Netflix any time soon.
Ildy Modrovich responds to Tom Ellis’ replacement speculation
Rumours claiming that TVD star Ian Somerhalder will replace Tom Ellis on ‘Lucifer’ have been rife on social media for quite a while now. This has gained significant traction in some corners of social media – perhaps a result of the fans’ thirst for the latest news about their favourite series.
Ildy Modrovich, the showrunner, tweeted “Bwahahahaha!!!!” on a post related to the replacement of Ellis by Ian Somerhalder on ‘Lucifer’. He has laughed off (LITERALLY) these rumours, which means Tom Ellis will be our Lucifer forever – fans, you don’t have to worry!
Tom Ellis isn’t going anywhere, the ‘Lucifer’ star will stay with the show.
Ian vs. Tom: Who’d be a better Morningstar?
Though Tom Ellis is secure on ‘Lucifer’, there’s nothing wrong in doing a fun battle ascertaining who’s the hotter supernatural – Tom Ellis or Ian Somerhalder? Both are flawless actors. While Ian’s piercing blue eyes make fans (especially female fans) go weak in their knees, one can’t ignore Tom’s sharp nose. Ian has that silky whispery tone when he speaks, and Tom has a smouldering hot wit. Ugghh!! Both are undeniably and equally hot.
In fact, both of them have made it to People’s Magazine’s “Sexiest Men Alive” list. Interestingly, the fact that makes them likable is that they are humble despite being aware of the huge fan following. It’s rather difficult to choose one, at least for us. How about you?
Netflix has confirmed a sixth season, but maybe a seventh season is on its way already – nothing is confirmed yet. Did you want to see Ian on the screen or do you love Tom as Lucifer? Let us know in the comments.
