Tom Ellis Signs a Deal for More Lucifer at Netflix

  • Post Category:Netflix

Thank God, Tom Ellis just closed a deal to continue playing Lucifer should Netflix be in the market.

Despite FOX’s decision to can the series after three relatively successful seasons, Lucifer flourished on Netflix.

And even though they initially canceled the fan-favorite series after the fourth season, common sense got the better of Netflix, and we’re anxiously awaiting news on the release of Lucifer Season 5.

TE Signs Lucifer 1

With as fast as fans gobbled up Lucifer Season 4 and the intense conversation surrounding the cancellation survivor, it’s hard to imaging the fifth season will be anything but a roaring success.

So why on earth wouldn’t Netflix want to move forward with a sixth season?

Now that Deadline has reported Ellis signed on the dotted line for more of his mischievous and comical take on the dark lord, we can remain hopeful that the world will expand beyond the fifth season.

TE Signs Lucifer 2

All of the parts are falling into place!

It’s funny to think that executive producers Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson once felt OK with the doors closing on their beloved series after its revival at Netflix.

They signed deals as soon as Netflix began talks with Warner Bros. TV, the series producer, about getting more devilish fun on their schedule beyond the upcoming season.

Luci and Chloe

That must mean that early response to what lies ahead is even better than we hoped.

And let’s be honest, with the way that Lucifer Season 4 ended and the enormous sacrifice Lucifer made to reclaim the throne in Hell, there are infinite directions this story can take under the right guidance, and Modrovich and Henderson have steered it beautifully.

Shortened seasons has meant losing a lot of the secondary character development we enjoyed when there were 22 episodes to a season.

TE Signs Lucifer 3

Other than the excitement surrounding Lucifer resuming his reign, such as getting involved with his nephew, Charlie, and how Amenadiel and Linda are dealing with their celestial spawn.

Chloe must be reeling with Lucifer’s decision to return to Hell, and how the two make their way back to each other will certainly be worth the watch.

And let’s not forget Eve, who is now intertwined emotionally with Mazikeen. Eve sort of disappeared at the end of Season 5, but we’re not worried that she won’t be back and entertaining as ever.

TE Signs Lucifer 4

And my fingers are crossed that we’ll see a lot more with Dan and Ella, who are two of the most complex characters on the series, always surprising us with their latest developments.

The good news is that the entire cast is supposedly on board for more.

Now we just need to sit and wait patiently for word on the release of Season 5.

TE Signs Lucifer 5

Since marketing efforts might want to refer to an endpoint or the continuation beyond the upcoming season, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Ellis’ new deal will prompt Netflix to announce soon.

Are you excited? What do you think is coming for the Lucifer gang in the upcoming season?

Hit the comments and revel in this good news.

13 Reasons Why Sneak Peek: Who Targets Ani?

  • Post Category:Netflix

13 Reasons Why Season 4 arrives on Netflix in one week, and the streamer has dropped a new sneak peak. 

The clip involves Winston (Deaken Bluman) trying to get answers from Ani (Grace Saif) following Monty’s death. 

“Tell me what really happened and I swear to you I’ll never mention it again, to anyone,” he sais to a clearly shocked Ani.


“Just tell me what really happened.”

Unfortunately for Winston, Ani has the best poker face out there, and gives him the following response:

“I don’t know.”

winston 13rw

It’s an awkward scene, for sure, and Winston leaves with the following:

“Why lie to me? What good does that do?”

Indeed, there would be no show if these teenagers told the truth. 

Through three seasons, we’ve had a suicide, an almost school shooting, sexual assault, and murder. 

The New Kid - 13 Reasons Why

It’s been an exhausting series, and with us heading into the final season, there has to be some consequences for the characters. 

Alex was the person who killed Bryce, but continues to live a free life. That is something that will change if Winston continues his pursuit of the truth. 

“Everything has led to this,” reads the official logline from Netflix.

“In the powerful final season of 13 Reasons Why, Liberty High School’s Senior Class prepares for graduation.”

“But before they can say goodbye, the crew of friends will have to band together one last time to keep a dangerous secret buried, try to make peace with the past four years, and face final, heartbreaking choices that might alter their lives forever.”

The cast of 13 Reasons Why includes Dylan Minnette as Clay Jensen, Alisha Boe as Jessica Davis, Brandon Flynn as Justin Foley, Miles Heizer as Alex Standall, Grace Saif as Ani Achola, Christian Navarro as Tony Padilla, Ross Butler as Zach Dempsey, Devin Druid as Tyler Down, Timothy Granaderos as Montgomery de la Cruz, Anne Winters as Chloe, Deaken Bluman as Winston Williams, Tyler Barnhardt as Charlie St. George, Austin Aaron as Luke Holiday, Inde Navarrette as Estela de la Cruz, RJ Brown as Caleb, Steven Weber as Principle Bowen, Brenda Strong as Mrs. Walker, Amy Hargreaves as Mrs. Jensen, Josh Hamilton as Matt Jensen, Mark Pellegrino as Deputy standall, and introducing Jan Luis Castellanos as Diego Torres.

Apple Gives Straight-to-Series Order For ‘Hedy Lamarr’ TV Series Starring Gal Gadot

  • Post Category:Apple TV+

Apple has given a straight-to-series order for a new show called “Hedy Lamarr,” which will star Gal Gadot and will premiere on Apple TV+. The series will feature the story of classic Hollywood film star and inventor Hedy Lamarr.

Variety reports the eight-episode series is being written and executive produced by Sarah Treem, who previously worked on Showtime’s “The Affair.” Gadot, best known for her portrayal of DC Comics superhero Wonder Woman, will both star in the show and act as an executive producer.

Warren Littlefield and Katie Robbins will also executive produce. Gadot and her husband and producing partner Jaron Varsano will executive produce under their Pilot Wave banner. Adam Haggiag and Alexandra Dean will serve as co-producers, with Hedy Lamarr’s children Anthony Loder and Denise Deluca consulting on the series. Endeavor Content will produce.

The project originated at Showtime, but will now move to the Apple TV+ streaming platform, due to a deteriorating” relationship between Treem and the cable network.

“Hedy Lamarr” will follow the true story of the legendary Hollywood glamour girl, covering the 30 years spanning from Lamarr’s escape from pre-war Vienna; to her meteoric rise in the Golden Age of Hollywood; to “her fall and eventual disgrace at the dawn of the Cold War.”

The show will also provide a look at Lamarr’s life as an inventor, including a frequency-hopping system, patented by Lamarr and her friend George Antheil, that became the basis for spread spectrum technology used today.

The historical drama originated with Gadot and Varsano, who then partnered with Littlefield and Treem.

Cobra Kai Moving to New Streaming Home as Youtube Lets Go of Series

  • Post Category:Netflix

Cobra Kai is targeting a new home for its third season. 

The TV sequel to The Karate Kid has called Youtube its home for the past two seasons and has racked up substantial viewership on the platform. 

On the heel of the series reaching a record for its Season 2 premiere, it was swiftly renewed for a third season. 

Cobra Kai group

Youtube has been vocal to producer Sony Pictures Television about not ordering another season beyond the third and has given the company permission to shop the show to other outlets. 

Deadline is reporting that Netflix and Hulu are the most likely to pick up the series, and it makes a lot of sense. 


The franchise is well-known, and we are living in unprecedented times, in which original, scripted content could run out because of the COVID-19 induced shutdown. 

The new home would not have to spend a lot to market the project as it will come with a loyal audience that should follow it to its new home. 

Deadline is also reporting that the new home will also have streaming rights to the first two seasons. 

If you’re unfamiliar the story, it follows Johnny Lawrence 34 years after his defeat in the 1984 All-Valley Karate Tournament.

Now in his 50s, Johnny works in construction and lives in an apartment in Reseda, Los Angeles, having fallen far from the wealthy lifestyle in Encino enabled by his verbally abusive step-father, Sid Weinberg.

cobra kai1

He has a son, Robby Keene, with ex-girlfriend Shannon Keene, but he abandoned them both the day Robby was born after Johnny’s mother Laura died the same day.

Johnny, self-admittedly, has never recovered from the breakup with his high school girlfriend, Ali Mills.

Ralph Macchio, William Zabka, Xolo Maridueña, Courtney Henggeler, Tanner Buchanan, Mary Mouser, Jacob Bertrand, Gianni Decenzo, Martin Kove, and Peyton List star. 

News of the show on the move is not surprising. Youtube has been scaling back scripted offerings, and Step Up High Water scored a surprising revival at Starz earlier this week following the cancellation.
