The #SaveLucifer campaign worked for the fanatic fans of Lucifer right when Fox decided to cancel the show. Guess who took over the show? Netflix what else. Netflix ordered the fourth Season of Lucifer by shopping it. The rest they say is history. It was June 15, when Tom Ellis made an official confirmation that Netflix had saved Lucifer Season 4. He thanked everyone for the support and their love for #Lucifer. He also mentioned that he was happy and said to all of the fans that he was going to burst! (Jk, by happiness, of course).
The production on Lucifer Season 4 began in August of 2018 and was scheduled to wrap in December. This was confirmed by Co-showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich. So if the production on season four has wrapped up and followed a strict schedule from August 13, 2018, to December 2018, it means that Lucifer should be out anytime soon.
It obviously implies that we are looking forward to spring 2019 release date, for season four to hit Netflix. Lucifer will hit across all places and platforms at the same time. Earlier Lucifer aired on Amazon Prime Video in the UK, no new developments over this have been confirmed yet.
Regarding the cast bit, Tom Ellis and Lauren German will be back as Lucifer Morningstar and Detective Chloe. Others include Kevin Alejandro as Detective Dan Espinoza, DB Woodside as Amenadiel, Lesley-Ann Brandt as Mazikeen, Aimee Garcia as Ella Lopez and Rachael Harris as Dr. Linda Martin.
There’s a bit of bad news that I was saving for last. Season 4 is going to be ten episodes long only, which is way too down from season 3’s 24-episodes or a bit shorter than the first Season (13 episodes) and second Season (18 episodes).
Netflix is leading to a great deal of confusion in the release date of Lucifer. It has driver people totally crazy, as there are some who feel Lucifer will air on Good Friday, given how Netflix markets its series. CarterMatt talks about the same strategy that Netflix has up its sleeve. It is delaying or announcing sudden release dates for its shows. So fans are thinking of quirky release dates for Lucifer. As of now, Good Friday seems that only one that checks all the boxes.
