Season four of Lucifer was the first season produced by Netflix. Previously, the show aired on Fox. Season four is available to stream on Netflix now. Watch the trailer below.
Lucifer was first cancelled by Fox after three seasons. Confident that they would be renewed, the producers ended season three of Lucifer on a major cliffhanger. When the show was cancelled anyway, the cliffhanger drove fans to demand a renewal on social media. A #SaveLucifer campaign amassed over one million tweets in the day following the cancellation. The campaign was a success and Netflix picked the series up. Lucifans (Lucifer fans) were thrilled about Netflix’s season five announcement until they learned that season five would be the show’s last. While the uptick in new episodes seems great, sixteen episodes may not be enough for some Lucifans. The Lucifer audience contains some of the most dedicated television fans who are desperate for more of their favorite show. Some fans have started a #LuciferSeasonSix campaign in the hopes of getting another season from Netflix. Showrunner Ildy Modrovich (CSI: Miami) has thanked fans for their passion, but told fans not to expect another season on Twitter: “[The writers and cast] feel just as sad as many of you do that this marvelous ride is coming to an end, a fight won’t change things right now.”
