Lucifer's Last Hurrah
When Netflix picked up the series, Lucifer, after it was cancelled by FOX last year, fans rejoiced and thanked the streaming giant for listening to thousands upon thousands of fans who love the show and Tom Ellis who plays the central figure of Lucifer Morningstar.
Lucifer, was just one of the shows that Netflix managed to save and thus give viewers the impression that Netflix is a safe haven for shows that have been dropped by their original network.
But it's the end of the TV viewing season once more as most shows have already ended their respective season runs with either a cliffhanger or a proper send off for the characters in question and their corresponding character arcs. Summer is the time for production just before most shows come back for the fall season in September. Some shows will come back and others will not.
Lucifer, although renewed and coming back for a fifth season this Fall, will be airing it's last.
Based on the character created by award-winning author Neil Gaiman, Sam Keith and Mike Drigenberg and taken from the bestselling comic book series, Sandman by Gaiman, the show like the comic, focuses on the Devil, Lucifer Morningstar, who has abandoned his "post" down in Hell and has happily settled in Los Angeles where he runs a nightclub and occasionally helps out the LAPD as a consultant.
The cast includes Lauren German as Detective Chloe Decker, Kevin Alejandro of True Blood as Detective Daniel "Dan" Espinoza, D. B. Woodside of Buffy The Vampire Slayer as Amenadiel, Lesley-Ann Brandt as Mazikeen, and Rachael Harris as Dr. Linda Martin.
As in most American shows these days, the show itself was shot in Canada, Vancouver to be exact before production was relocated to LA respectively for the third season.
While the number of episodes for its final season have yet to be announced, Netflix did greenlight only 10 episodes for its recently concluded 4th season as compared to it's initial run of 10 and 18 and 26 at it's most number so far, during its 3rd season run on Fox.
Show runners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich expressed their thanks for Netflix for allowing them to tell and end the story of Lucifer their way and for the fans who have supported the show since day one.
