If you ignore the religious imagery, Lucifer is an interesting show. The Devil has come to the city of angels for a vacation from hell. When he is not punishing evil souls, he is busy catching bad guys with his detective friend from LAPD. Tom Ellis and Lauren Graham, set up amazing chemistry as Lucifer and Detective Decker. One can’t help but marvel at their chemistry, but even then Fox had cancelled the show after season 3.
A lot of fans went berserk and signed petitions to bring back the show, and finally the streaming giant Netflix, picked up the show for season 4 comprising of 10 episodes. The season 4 of Lucifer, a show based on the book written by Neil Gaiman, was is one of the highly watched shows this summer. Lauren Graham, took to her Twitter to thank fans for their love and support and more importantly, Netflix for reviving their show. Basically, bringing it back from the pits of hell.
Let’s all give a HUGE ROARING thank you to @LuciferNetflix & @netflix for even swooping down & saving us! Really all the thanks to them & the fans. So here’s to a #season5netflixlucifer /p>— Lauren German (@LaurenGerman) May 15, 2019
The 10-episode season, which came out earlier this month, opens with a witty recap of the past three cycles, then off it goes. At the end of season 3, we saw how Decker saw Lucifer’s real face, well, his devil face to be exact. And the season 4 is basically what happens after she sees his face. We will leave out the spoilers as we really want you to binge watch this show on the weekend. Whether Decker and Lucifer’s relationship changes after the big revelation or is it just a dream, we will definitely leave out the details. A lot of moms and people in the US had filed petitions against the show, for glamourizing and romanticizing the Devil and the Hell, but then you can’t always please people. The show over the past few years has gathered a cult following.
Showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich have already discussed their season five ideas publically. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Henderson said: ‘We did spend some time digging into what we think can be season five. We even have the first scene [of season five], which is one of my favourite things we’ve ever come up with.’ Lewis Hamilton struggled in school after being made a target of bullies Dystopian TV used to be an entertaining escape, now it's like watching a documentary Modrovich added: ‘We do have an idea. It’s an idea that when it came up in the room, we went, “Oh god, that’s crazy.” Then the more we talked about it, the more we went, 'and brilliant.'"
With Lauren Graham tweeting about the possibility of a season 5, we can’t help but wonder what kind of Hell, will the smooth-talking and charming Devil, played by Tom Ellis raise on earth?
