‘Lucifer’ Picked Up By Netflix After Fox Cancellation

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Fox’s Lucifer just got a new lease on life courtesy of streaming giant Netflix.  It is not clear when the series will return for a fourth season, or how many episodes it will consist of, but Lucifer fans can rest easy today, knowing that it will return soon.

Lead actor Tom Ellis and creator Joe Henderson took to twitter to celebrate the news, thanking fans for helping save the series.

Fox has cancelled a spate of popular programming recently, as “Lucifer joins Brooklyn Nine-Nine as “the second Fox series to be canceled this season and move to another outlet (Brooklyn was saved by NBC). The decision to drop both Brooklyn and Lucifer — neither of which were owned by Fox — comes as the network is undergoing a dramatic shift amid its studio counterpart’s pending sale to Disney (or Comcast). Gone are niche comedies like Brooklyn and narrow dramas like Lucifer as Fox plots a shift to broader audiences with a slate of procedurals and multicamera comedies including Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing.”

While the potential sale to the Disney Company may be a factor in these recent cancellations, Fox has always had a reputation as a “canceler”, quickly moving to new series and trends, especially involving content that they do not own.

The Lucifer television show is based on the Neil Gaiman’s Lucifer Morningstar character from his seminal Sandman series who would later receive his own series written by Mike Carey (which ran for a total of 75 issues from 2000 to 2006).

Stay tuned to Horror News Network for further details about Lucifer’s upcoming fourth season.
