Lucifer thrown a lifeline
Fan campaign to save fantasy series gets good news.
Axed US series Lucifer has been saved from hell with Netflix picking up the series for a fourth season.
FOX cancelled the series last month, triggering a fan #SaveLucifer campaign. At the time, co-showrunner Joe Henderson tweeted “We created a season finale with a huge cliffhanger so that there was no way FOX could cancel us. Instead, we’re going to frustrate the hell out of you fans. I’m so sorry for that.”
The series stars Tom Ellis as Lucifer Morningstar, Lord of Hell, who helps the LAPD track down criminals on Earth. According to reports, there were multiple buyers interested in reviving the series, but the deal took some time to hammer out since Hulu holds the US SVOD rights for the first three seasons.
The deal likely means it will continue in Australia on Foxtel, rather than move to Netflix, but that’s yet to be confirmed.
