Netflix saves Lucifer after Fox cancellation

Lucifer Tom Ellis

Last month, we shared the news that Fox had cancelled their crime-fighting devil series Lucifer at the end of its third season, despite the fact that the show ranked in the top 10 for ratings on the network and showrunner Joe Henderson was so certain there would be a fourth season that season 3 ended with "a huge cliffhanger". He warned fans before the finale ended that it would "frustrate the hell" out of them.

Luckily, Lucifer was in a situation where (unlike, for example, Ash vs. Evil Dead) the show could be shopped around to other networks and streaming services, while "Lucifans" ran a "Save Lucifer" campaign that actually had a shot at working. And the "Save Lucifer" efforts have worked. A day before the options on the cast would have expired, Netflix came swooping in to keep the actors working on the show, closing a deal with Warner Bros. TV to release a fourth season through their streaming service.

Based on a comic book created by Neil Gaiman for the Vertigo branch of DC, Lucifer tells the story of 

the original fallen angel, the charming, charismatic and devilishly handsome Lord of Hell, Lucifer Morningstar, who helps LAPD detective Chloe Decker take down criminals.

The series stars Tom Ellis, Lauren German, Rachael Harris, DB Woodside, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Aimee Garcia, Tricia Helfer, Scarlett Estevez, and Kevin Alejandro.
