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. If it had been given a chance to exist, Lucifer season 4 sounds like it would have been a treat for fans of the show.

The final episode of season 3 concluded in a rather open-ended way, as Lucifer (Tom Ellis) revealed his true appearance to Chloe (Lauren German) for the first time.

As co-showrunner Joe Henderson explained in a new interview, “That was the big thrust of season 4 – exploring Chloe dealing with those ramifications, and how it affected her relationship with Lucifer. Both professionally and personally. Can you work with the Devil? Can you love the devil?”

The other co-showrunner, Ildy Modrovich, teased Lucifer season 4 by saying this:

“We also had an exciting character from Lucifer’s past who was going to come in and mix everything up. A very personal, intimate figure who we won’t reveal the identity of yet… until we find out if we get the chance to tell the tale on a new network.”

Henderson added that the pair remains “hopeful” of Lucifer being reborn at a different network. Fans of the show are still hoping for this, as well, and they’ve created a Change.org petition to encourage The CW, Hulu or Netflix to save the show. If Brooklyn Nine-Nine can be saved by a new network, why can’t Lucifer?

We’ll keep you posted if we hear any updates on that.
