There may be life in Lucifer yet. Jennifer Salke, the head honcho over at Amazon Studio, has revealed that talks are ongoing between Amazon and NBC with regards to Lucifer’s future.
“We were talking about Lucifer,” Amazon’s Salke told Deadline last Thursday. “I know that international, especially the UK group, was really bullish on that show, I haven’t checked in on that today [Thursday 7th June], but I heard conversations were ongoing on that yesterday.”
That was literally all that Salke said on the topic, which isn’t much to be going on. But it’s nice to know, for fans of Lucifer, that talks are at least happening and that there is hope yet for the show that NBC cancelled after three seasons.
Deadline notes that Hulu could prove to be a stumbling block for Amazon in this deal. Hulu has the American “subscription video on demand” rights for Lucifer’s first two seasons, which Amazon would surely want if they are investing big money in picking up the show.
We’ll just have to wait and see to whether Amazon, NBC and Hulu can come to an agreement and save Lucifer. The show’s fans have been very vocal about wanting the show to live on, and now it’s over to the corporations to see if they can make that happen.
More as we hear it.
