Fox canceled the television series adaptation of Lucifer after 3 seasons last May, but Lucifer fans can rejoice for in the spirit of the holiday… he has risen!
Netflix heard your #SaveLucifer cries and swooped in to save the series. They made the announcement in June 2018 and filming started in August 2018, but we’re just a couple weeks away from season 4 launching on Netflix. Seasons 1-3 are currently available for streaming on Netflix just in case you’d like to catch up.

Apparently Amazon and CW were once considered contenders for picking up the series. The CW made sense considering their relationship with DC, but with them already having Constantine I’m guess Lucifer would’ve been a bit of an overlap.
I enjoyed the first season of Lucifer and I fell off a bit from it some time during season 2. It sat on my DVR and I kept meaning to revisit it. I grew frustrated with the show, because you could see that it was held back by being on a traditional network. The campy way of skirting on raunchy subjects was annoying. I’m glad to see Netflix pick up the show and take it in a more suitable direction given the content.
Bored with being the Lord of Hell, the devil relocates to Los Angeles, where he opens a nighclub and forms a connection with a homicide detective.
Lucifer season 4 will release on Netflix on Wednesday, May 8.
