There has been a lot of confusion amongst fans over the Netflix show ‘Lucifer’. Will the male lead be replaced? Will Ian Somerhalder be seen in ‘Lucifer’ Season 6? Will there be a season 6 at all? Here is the final and latest breakdown on everything ‘Lucifer’. And to add to that bonus, we’ll also tell you all about Ian Somerhalder’s new shows, and earlier movie and TV shows as well. Hold on tight!
Lucifer is one show which has had the honour of finding love with a global audience and yet has also faced the most challenges to keep itself running. After its initial cancellation by FOX in 2018, the fans of the show were left heartbroken.
- Ian Somerhalder is a star but not the morning star
- Season 4 of ‘Lucifer’ saw the devil being good
- ‘Lucifer’ Season 6 is coming but, before it, season 5 will
Netflix, being the life-saver and savvy business machine that it is, swooped in at the last minute and renewed ‘Lucifer’ for two more seasons.
But troubles with lead actor Tom Ellis not only made season 6 seem a distant possibility, but talks of replacing him with Ian Somerhalder were also doing the rounds.
So, will Ian Somerhalder be seen in ‘Lucifer’ Season 6? What is the truth and who will return to the finally confirmed ‘Lucifer’ Season 6? Let’s find out.
Ian Somerhalder is a star but not the morning star
Well, it is no surprise that people have come to love Ian Somerhalder after his portrayal of the good vampire/bad vampire, Damon Salvatore, in ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and would love to see more of him on screen.
But, as it turns out, there is absolutely no truth to the reports that Ian Somerhalder will be replacing Tom Ellis as ‘Lucifer’ in season 6. The show has fallen prey to the cold hands of the “fake news” phenomenon.
Netflix, which recently (and finally) announced that ‘Lucifer’ Season 6 will be returning and that the season would mark the end for the series, made no announcement of any plans to remove the lead Ellis, who plays ‘Lucifer’ the fallen star, on the show and the fans of ‘Lucifer’ finally breathed a heavy sigh of relief.
Though some people (Somerhalder fans to be more precise) would have loved to see Ian Somerhalder in ‘Lucifer’ Season 6. Well, they can also watch other Ian Somerhalder movies and TV shows. We are sure that Ian Somerhalder will be returning with many new shows gradually.
So, with that cleared out, what will the new season of ‘Lucifer’ bring and when will we see it?
Season 4 of ‘Lucifer’ saw the devil being good
The comedy-drama series stars Ellis in the lead who is the king of hell and who, escaping his responsibilities of being the lord of hell, retires to Los Angeles, and opens an upscale night club. A series of events leads to ‘Lucifer’ working alongside LAPD officer Chloe as they solve crimes in the streets of LA.
Season 4 of ‘Lucifer’ saw that the devil’s work is never over. ‘Lucifer’, the fallen angel, finds himself in an identity crisis where he has to choose between being good and returning to hell to save innocent lives.
But the former demon, who is on the road to reformation owing to his love for Chloe, does not wish to return to hell. And that good in ‘Lucifer’ makes him choose the harder road of returning to hell, believing that he can be both the king of hell and a good angel.
So, what will season 5 of ‘Lucifer’ be about and when will it return?
‘Lucifer’ Season 6 is coming but before it, season 5 will
Netflix finally confirmed the date for season 5 of ‘Lucifer’ announcing that the new season will be available on the streaming network on 21st August 2020. The new season will comprise a total of 16 episodes unlike season 4 of ‘Lucifer’ which had a total of 10 episodes and will be divided into two instalments. There is still no news of when the second instalment of the series will drop.
Season 5 will most likely focus on ‘Lucifer’ as he decides to be a good king and a good man to his subjects and Chloe, while, of course, the love triangle saga involving him, Chloe, and Eve is likely to continue.
Season 6 of ‘Lucifer’ which is the ‘final final’ end, as joked by the official account of ‘Lucifer’ on Twitter, is going to be an end for ‘Lucifer’ the ruler of hell and his forever loyal subjects, the fans.
