Lucifer Season 4 is finally almost here. With the big move to Netflix, we dig into what’s in store for viewers in the revamped DC Comics-based series.
For three years, the series Lucifer, loosely based on the DC Vertigo comic of the same name, aired on the broadcast network Fox. Following the adventures of the devil himself, Lucifer Morningstar, as he served as a consultant to LAPD detective Chloe Decker, the series blended the familiar nature of procedural series with plenty of humor and supernatural mysteries. The series was never a massive hit in the ratings, but it acquired a considerable worldwide online fanbase, and a few staunch media critic supporters, too.
After a longer than usual wait, Season 4 is finally on the way, and fans everywhere are eager to know what’s in store for their favorite crime fighting duo. We may not know much about what the season holds, but this is what we know so far.
SEASON FOUR PREMIERE’S TITLE
When the third season finale of Lucifer came to its dramatic end, the series had already been cancelled, and fans were left to deal with a truly surprising cliffhanger. Chloe, long left in the dark about Lucifer’s identity despite plenty of signs along the way, finally bore witness to the disturbing reality of his devil face – and before she could react, the finale was over.
It goes without saying that fans have plenty of reason to be worried about what comes next for the beloved duo of Lucifer and Chloe. But with the season premiere’s title being “Everything’s Okay,” maybe there’s hope for a peaceful connection between these two after all.
FUN SHOUTOUT TO FAN CAMPAIGN
We’ve already talked about the social media fan campaign that was launched around the world in an effort to get Lucifer picked up by another network. Using the #SaveLucifer hashtag, fans racked up thousands upon thousands of tweets, Instagram posts, petitions, YouTube videos, and more.
As a fun tip of the hat toward the fans that made this all possible, showrunner Joe Henderson has revealed that episode nine – the penultimate of the season – will, in fact, be titled “Save Lucifer.” We have no way of knowing just what that means contextually at this point, but the sweetness of the gesture still stands.
MORE FREEDOM WITH ADULT CONTENT
One of the pitfalls of airing on broadcast television involves having to conform to standards and practices rating requirements. As a result, Lucifer, a character predisposed to indulging in all sorts of sins, had a relatively modest lifestyle, while the series did as much as it could to push the boundaries and test their limits. Now airing on Netflix, however, all bets are off as to what content the series can include.
One thing that may definitely be making an appearance? A little more skin. According to Tom Ellis, “I think Joe Henderson, our showrunner, has been adamant that he wants to have my bum on screen for three seasons and now we can finally do that.”
INBAR LAVI IS JOINING THE SHOW AS EVE
In a series about the man blamed for the creation of sin, it was only a matter of time before the world’s original sinner arrived to stir up some trouble. Inbar Lavi, who previously starred in the short-lived series Imposters, will be appearing in the heavily recurring role of Eve, who has come to earth because, according to TV Insider’s report, “After an eternity with Adam, she’s grown restless in her marriage and longs for a less predictable time when things were exciting. Naughty. Dangerous.”
Eve reportedly, “misses her hot and heavy first love…the charming rogue who tempted her so many years ago. That’s right, the devil himself…Lucifer.” And as this exclusive photo from TV Line shows, Lucifer may be the one who’s tempted this time around.
