Things We Saw Today: Lucifer Star Tom Ellis Bares All in New Netflix Trailer

Plus Zack Snyder, Idris Elba, and more!


The cast of Lucifer

Fans of Fox’s Lucifer were devastated when the network cancelled the cult series after three seasons. Based on the Vertigo comics seris, Lucifer followed the adventures of its titular devil (Tom Ellis), the charming, charismatic and devilishly handsome Lord of Hell, who partners with LAPD detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German) to take down criminals.

Fans quickly took to social media to try and save the show, especially after a season three finale that left the series with a massive cliffhanger. Luckily, all the prayers and/or virgin sacrifices worked, as Netflix announced that they would be picking up the series. The resurrected show released their first teaser trailer for the new season, with a clip showing German and new cast member Inbar Lavi (Prison Break), who will be playing Eve.

Tom Ellis strolls in towards the end, rocking a Netflix bathrobe and mug, before assuring fans that the show won’t get any racier in its Netflix move. He then walks off set, but not before dropping his robe. Netflix hasn’t released a date for the new season, but this cheeky teaser promises that the gang will be up to all their old tricks.
