Netflix Rescues ‘Lucifer’

Fox’s recently canceled drama series Lucifer will get a second life after Netflix said it will produce a fourth season of the series, according to published reports.

The series, which will resume on Netflix in 2019, gets a reprieve after Fox broadcasting cancelled the show last month following the series’ third season.

The show’s return was aided by a massive social media outcry under the hashtag #savelucifer. Series showrunner Joe Henderson took to Twitter to celebrate the show’s new life and to thank fans for their support of the show.

Lucifer is the second cancelled Fox series to get new life on another outlet this spring, following NBC’s recent pickup of comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine. It also follows Amazon’s pickup last month of cancelled Syfy space-themed series The Expanse.
