The Devil made you do it.

Lucifer–the late, lamented horror/fantasy series that hit Netflix in 2018 after being dropped by Fox–is being feted from beyond the grave, according to a report on Deadline.

The numbers provided by the people at Nielsen show that Lucifer–which aired its sixth and final season on Netflix last September–was the most-streamed original series last year. According to the Nielsen numbers, the 93 episodes of Lucifer drew more than 18.3 billion minutes of streaming in 2021.

Lucifer–produced by Warner Bros. Television and Jerry Bruckheimer Television–was led by showrunners Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson and starred Tom Ellis as Lucifer Morningstar, the Lord of Hell. The series premiered in 2016 when Lucifer–becoming bored with his life–took off for Los Angeles, opened a nightclub called Lux and starting consulting with the LAPD.

The show was based on the DC Comics character created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg, taken from the comic book series The Sandman.

Lucifer suffered from mixed reviews on Fox, but received higher marks as the series progressed on Netflix, and was even nominated for People’s Choice and Saturn Awards.
