Tom Ellis has been a favourite of ours ever since he graced our screens as Lucifer Morningstar in the hit show Lucifer, but what has the star been up to since the show concluded in 2021? Rest assured that the actor has been very busy - and has four new projects on the way! From an exciting new movie to TV shows, here are Tom’s upcoming projects that we can’t wait to watch… 

Exploding Kittens - Netflix 

Have you ever played the hugely popular Exploding Kittens? Well, now you'll have a chance to see it on the silver screen in an animation starring Tom as well as Kill Bill's Lucy Liu and The Lot star David Gborie. The show will also come with an interactive mobile version of the game – marking a first for Netflix – so you can watch and play at the same time!

But how could a card game involving exploding kittens, hairy potato cats (and so on) be adapted? The story will follow struggles between heaven and hell, with God and the Devil eventually coming down to Earth to inhabit the bodies of house cats. Since it has yet to be confirmed who Tom will be playing, do you think he'll be taking on the role of Lucifer again, but this time as a furry feline?!

Second Wife - Hulu 

Starring opposite Emma Roberts, Tom is taking on a rom-com! The dark comedy follows Sasha, who leaves NYC to start a new life in London, falling in love with Jacob, a newly divorced dad – and the pair decide to wed on an impulse before quickly realising that there is plenty that they don't know about each other.

Washington Black - Hulu 

This novel adaptation follows a young man named Washington Black, who escapes from slavery after a shocking death, to go on to have adventures around the world. In the show, Ernest Kingsley Junior is set to play 'Wash', while Tom will be playing Titch Wilde, who helps Wash out. This is Us star Sterling K Brown also stars as Medwin Harris, who takes Wash under his wing.
