Lucifer is finally coming back and we cannot be any more excited! After the show was canceled at Fox, fans were slowly losing hope over seeing their favorite devil at work. But now thanks to Netflix, we are now getting “Lucifer” with a 10-episode fourth season at its new home. It will be finally released on Netflix on May 8, courtesy a smoking hot teaser of Tom Ellis coming out of a swimming pool and picking up a glass. Sounds arbitrary, right? But it has got fans way too excited!
And the 'Lucifer' star believes the fourth season will feel like a 'bomb going off'. He spoke exclusively to Cinema Blend about what we can expect from the upcoming season.
"It does, but to be honest with you, I'm looking forward to the new way it's going to happen. Because the old way was, when you're doing a network show, there's always this kind of weekly reaction, but there's always an industry side of it as well. Where you're looking at figures and ratings and all that, and you're wondering about whether you're coming back and how you're doing and all 'that sort of stuff," he said.
"It sort of takes away from it a little bit. What I'm really excited about is it all coming out at once internationally, because the show has this huge global following to it. And people have watched it at different times at different rates up until Season 3, so for everyone to get Season 4 at the same time and be able to watch it, I'm excited about that happening. A bomb going off, as opposed to lots of things every week," Ellis added.
Following the Fox cancellation of the show, fans can now watch Lucifer at Netflix without having to wait an entire week for all the episodes. With Netflix taking over the show, we can now peacfully continue our binge-watching ritual on the streaming platform.
When Ellis was asked about the changing themes on the show, he told Cinema Blend: "I love the sort of sinister underbelly of the show and the kind of darkness of L.A. from time to time. I think one of the things that, again, because we're on a shorter filming schedule, only for ten episodes, was fun. We didn't have to preserve ourselves quite so much, so we could do a lot more shooting at night and bring that kind of edge back to the show in that sense."
The show was revived by Netflix after an outpour of messages from fans who tirelessly campaigned to bring back their favorite devil. This was also followed by a #SaveLucifer hashtag on Twitter that went viral, following which it was picked up by Netflix in June 2018, reports Radio Times.
Lucifer is a fantasy comedy drama that focuses on Lucifer Morningstar, a fallen angel who joins LAPD after getting bored being the Lord of Hell. He has some special powers, as you would, and has the ability to make people tell him their hidden desires. It is based on the Lucifer character created by Neil Gaiman for The Sandman comic-book series.
