Lucifer is revived as Netflix picks up the show for season four
Lucifer is back from the dead. Following the show's cancellation by Fox last month and a very active #SaveLucifer campaign online, Netflix have stepped in to pick up the series for a fourth season.
There is no news yet on how many episodes season four might take (season one was 13, but the episode count was largely expanded for seasons two and three by Fox).
Creator Joe Henderson took to Twitter to thank the fans that had campaigned for the show's resurrection.
“Thank you thank you THANK YOU to all the #Lucifer fans. You brought us back. YOU did this. So relax, take a breath, put some ice on those fingers that have been hashtagging up a storm… and get ready for more deviltime.”
The show's star Tom Ellis who plays Lucifer Morningstar, the devil vacationing in LA and working with the police department, also tweeted:
“#LuciferSeason4 on @Netflix wow that sounds nice. You fans made this happen.”
Fellow cancelled Fox series Brooklyn Nine Nine was also saved by NBC, with new episodes expected to air in 2019.
Fox recently released the final two episodes of Luciferfilmed and held off for the abandoned season four. You can read Jess Thomas' review here as well as her final thoughts on the then-final three seasons of the show here.
