Lucifer season 4 is just about to release on Netflix on May 8th. If you’re looking for everything you need to know before jumping in, we have the full rundown on all the information you need going into the fourth season of Lucifer.

Lucifer is a Netflix Original urban fantasy series that previously aired on the FOX network. Thanks to FOX’s cancelation of the title, Netflix was there to save the day, ironically resurrecting the dark one back to life.

The show already has three seasons under its belt and a fiercely loyal fanbase. Lucifer’s character is based upon the characters of the DC Comic series of the same name created by Sam Keith, Mike Dringenberg, and Neil Gaimon. Gaimon is well averse to fiction based upon gods and magic, such as the popular title American Gods.

What is the plot for Lucifer Season 4?

*Spoilers for season 3 of Lucifer below*

The relationship between Lucifer and Chloe will have a drastic change thanks to the finale of the third season. In the climax of the season finale, Lucifer had killed Marcus Pierce (Cain) with one of the Maze Daggers. Lucifer’s anger was so great by the death of Charlotte his true nature was revealed. By showing his demon face, Chloe realizes everything Lucifer had told her was true.

Considering the feelings Lucifer and Chloe have towards one another may become incredibly strained. With the reveal that the person you like is literally Satan may have an adverse effect on your relationship. Chloe will likely need time to take in the hard truth of the world she is now faced with. Not to mention Lucifer had just killed her ex-fiancee.

Lucifer and Chloe’s romantic ventures aside, the Prince of Darkness will have even more to digest in season 4. With the reveal that Eve will feature in the upcoming season, she wants her former lover back. That’s right before Adam, came Lucifer. Throwing a spanner into the works we can expect a sinful Eve to cause all kinds of chaos.

Why did Fox cancel Lucifer?

The viewing figures for Lucifer were less than stellar, particularly for season 3, and are the reason why Fox likely chose to cancel the show. Add to the fact that it’s getting ultra competitive in the TV show space plus the costs of a series like Lucifer, it made it impossible for Fox to continue. Its international audience was flourishing. However, this is ultimately a key reason the show was saved.

How and Why Netflix Saved Lucifer for Season 4

First, we must look at why and how Fox canceled Lucifer. Tom Ellis spoke to Matt Web from TVline about how the cancellation went down. He was at a fan event in Rome when he heard the news broken by Joe Henderson that Fox hadn’t picked up the show for a fourth season.

On June 15th, 2018, after many days of waiting for any kind of announcement, The Hollywood Report broke the news that Netflix had picked up Lucifer.

The process of Netflix picking up Lucifer was apparently a “long process.” Once Fox had not ordered another series, Warner Brothers (the distributor and owner of the show) was shopping the show to other networks. Netflix decided to take the show on, but mainly because of the audience the show had in international regions. Tom Ellis heard of the news through a phone call and was told to “sharpen your horns, baby.”

So why exactly did Netflix pick up the show? As the show’s main star suggested, the show’s appeal outside of the United States was the most appealing. Netflix’s expansion to every country around the world means that they need to find content that’ll do well everywhere. This is where Lucifer presented the most opportunity.

The fact that Netflix picked up the show is significant in a number of ways. In recent years, Netflix has slowed down its continuation of series, instead opting to create shows from scratch.

Outside the US, the DC Comics show Titans is featured as a Netflix Original. The significance of this means that for Netflix, US Lucifer is the first DC Comics character exclusive to Netflix US. All of their exclusive superhero content has come from Marvel up until this point, relying on The CW for DC Comics.

Where is the Lucifer season 4 in production?

Filming began on season 4 on August 13th, 2018, which was confirmed by one of Netflix’s official Twitter accounts:

Filming of Lucifer season 4 wrapped up in early 2019.

How many episodes will be in Lucifer season 4?

Compared to the third season, Lucifer has had a huge drop in the number of episodes. The total amount of episodes has dropped from 26 to 10. Netflix typically doesn’t pick produce shows to have seasons that last longer than 13 episodes.

While fans may be disappointed by the drop in episode numbers, from a story standpoint, there’s plenty to look forward to. With only 10 episodes, the plot will be jam-packed, and episodes won’t be full of filler scenarios.

Episode Names for Lucifer Season 4

All the episode titles have been revealed for the upcoming season. We don’t believe the episode titles have spoilers, but they could give some insight into what to expect from season 4.
