Lucifer Fans Left Without Closure
Updated: Jul 7, 2018
The #SaveLucifer movement is still going strong, but as each day goes by, it becomes increasingly unlikely that the show will be picked up by another network.
Fox cancelled the series after three seasons, much to the heartbreak of loyal fans. Brooklyn Nine-Nine got the axe and was quickly picked up by NBC, but no white knight has yet to ride in and rescue the devil.
Lucifer would seem to be a good fit for a streaming service like Netflix or Hulu. It comes with a loyal, cult-like audience who would immediately subscribe to any service that renewed it.
What we have to remember, though, is networks make decisions based on the bottom line. Fox cancelled Lucifer because it wasn’t performing up to expectations in the ratings. The trend line was going down and it was no longer worth a spot in their lineup
But that does nothing to quell fans who finally got the reveal they’d been waiting for. In the season finale, Chloe sees Lucifer’s face for the first time, confirming something she’d expected. A huge cliffhanger that serves as proof everyone involved in the show thought it was coming back. Otherwise, they would have wrapped it up in a much better tied bow.
Will we ever get to see what happens next? Discovering whether you can actually love the devil would have been a fascinating dynamic to watch in season 4.
All Lucifer fans can do now is to keep pushing and hope.
