Lucifer may still have some life left. According to Deadline, Warner Bros. TV is shopping the cancelled FOX series around for a fourth season.
As reported earlier, the supernatural crime drama has been cancelled after three seasons. The cast includes Tom Ellis, Lauren German, DB Woodside, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Kevin Alejandro, Rachael Harris, Aimee Garcia, Tricia Helfer, Scarlett Estevez, and Tom Welling.
Per Deadline, Lucifer‘s production studio Warner Bros. TV is interested in shopping the series around to other networks for a fourth season. Currently, Hulu owns the streaming rights to the show, so that’s one option. Additionally, the crime drama is based on a DC Comics property and DC is launching a new streaming service, DC Universe, later this year.
Ellis and others connected with the show have vowed to keep fighting to save the series. The actor who plays the show’s title character learned the news from showrunner Joe Henderson. Ellis had just attended a fan convention in Rome and was on a high. He was initially shocked and then devastated. When the cancellation news went public, he was overwhelmed by the uproar and love expressed by the fans.
He notes that the tsunami response has helped to create a conversation about saving the show. He notes that, “I don’t want to promise anything for anybody, because there are so many things that have to align for things to happen…,” he ventures. “But I didn’t have hope, and I do have hope now. And as long as there is hope, I will keep fighting. Because I think that’s what our fans want us to do.”
What do you think? Are you a fan of Lucifer? Would you watch the series on another network or streaming service? Should it be saved?
