Lucifer season 4: showrunners discuss what would have happened

Following Fox’s cancellation of Luther after three seasons, the show’s bosses have revealed what would have happened in season 4.

Every previous season of the show has had 22 episodes, which causes us to wonder whether Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 6 is intended as some sort of send-off for the series. Formally, ABC hasn’t said that Agents Of...
