‘The Exorcist’ and ‘Lucifer’ Television Series Canceled by Fox

Today is a dark day for fans of Fox’s supernatural television offerings. The network just announced that The Exorcist has been cancelled after two seasons, and Lucifer has been cancelled after three seasons.

The first season of Jeremy Slater’s The Exorcist was praised heavily by critics and its small-but-active fan base, which led to a Season Two renewal. The second season changed settings and scenarios but maintained the character-driven formula that attracted fans to it in the first place. Unfortunately, the changes weren’t enough to improve viewership. According to Variety, the series “was Fox’s lowest-rated program this year, averaging 1.32 million total viewers and a 0.41 rating in the 18-49 demo.” read more

We’d also like to thank our partners Warner Bros. for their commitment to this show and we look forward to seeing where this wildly innovative series takes us in Season 3.” read more

Lucifer Gets Full Season Order Based on Initial Ratings Success

The Hollywood Reporter and other media outlets are reporting that Fox’s Lucifer just received a “back-nine order” for a full second season.

The term “back nine order” is primarily used to indicate that a series has been extended to a full season of 22 episodes, after the first thirteen episodes of a season have been produced.

For any program, this is an excellent sign, but it is especially encouraging for a genre series like Lucifer.  Lucifer (based on Neil Gaiman’s character Lucifer Morningstar from the Sandman comic book series) has been very successful in terms of Neilsen Ratings, pulling in an average of 8 million multi-platform viewers per epiosde this season. read more
