Fox has been axing shows left and right, pulling the plug on “The Last Man on Earth,” “Brooklyn 99” and “The Mick” just yesterday. Today, they’ve announced that “Lucifer” will soon be no more, as the show has been cancelled ahead of the Season 3 finale.
Actor Tom Ellis, who played the series’ sexy Satan, just tweeted the following:
“It has been the most amazing experience over the past 3 years playing Lucifer and falling in love with you, the fans. It fills me with great sadness to confirm the rumours that some of you have been asking. Fox has indeed cancelled
#lucifer I’m so sorry guys. #gutted“
The ratings for “Lucifer” had still been pretty strong in its third season, dipping slightly under 3 million viewers of late. The season started with nearly 4 million tuning in.
In “Lucifer,” Lucifer Morningstar has decided he’s had enough of being the dutiful servant in Hell and decides to spend some time on Earth to better understand humanity. He settles in Los Angeles – the City of Angels.
