‘Lucifer’ Saved by Netflix, Cast & Crew Reactions


“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.”

That’s what Lucifer co-showrunner Joe Henderson Tweeted when the show was cancelled in May, the result of middling ratings. Fans were understandably devastated, but they weren’t about to let the series get canned without a fight. #SaveLucifer was soon trending, and in a similar way that fans of fellow cancelled Fox show Brooklyn Nine-Nine made enough noise to get that show saved, Lucifer has been resurrected.

That’s right, Lucifer fans. Streaming giant Netflix has saved the series, acquiring it for a fourth season.

“Can’t express how grateful and humbled I am by the wave of support that you have all given,” series star Tom Ellis wrote in an Instagram post. “Thanks to you #LuciferLives.”


“Thank you thank you Thank you to all the #Lucifer fans,” Henderson posted on Twitter. “You brought us back. YOU did this.”

Actor D.B. Woodside took to Twitter with a video, thanking fans for ensuring the series would live on.  “We are going to do our best to bring you guys the best season…”
