Hell Yes! 'Lucifer' Has Officially Been Revived By Netflix
#SaveLucifer worked, y'all!
All I have to say is — good job, internet. The #SaveLucifer campaign has finally appeased the TV gods and brought the beloved series back from the dead.
On Friday, Netflix announced it had struck a deal to revive the canceled supernatural procedural as an original, starting with Season 4. Don't believe us? Here's proof:
The news comes about a month after Fox surprisingly axed the series alongside Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which was later picked up by NBC. There is no news yet on how many Season 4 episodes or future seasons of Lucifer the streaming giant is invested in.
Even though Lucifer — which stars Tom Ellis and Lauren German as the devil-detective duo who go about Los Angeles solving crimes together — was never a huge ratings success, fans (myself included) were outraged when the network brought the show to a screeching halt after just three seasons.
Immediately after Lucifer's cancelation, Ellis and showrunner Joe Henderson took to Twitter to encourage fans to tweet with the hashtag #SaveLucifer, which, naturally, began trending on Twitter.
So, nice work, everyone. There is sympathy for the devil after all.
