Not long after Fox pulled the plug on “Lucifer,“ we learned over the weekend that Netflix has swooped in to save the series at the final hour, ordering a fourth season that’ll exclusively play on the streaming service. Speaking with TV Line, showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich just laid out some details about the show’s jump to Netflix.
For starters, they confirm that Netflix has, for now, ordered 10 all-new episodes (all of which will run right around the same length as the episodes that aired on Fox). As for the recently aired “bonus episodes,” one of them might eventually be worked into Season 4.
“The first thing we’ve got to figure out,” Henderson explains, “is where the one that wasn’t a complete standalone, the Ella-focused episode, might fit.”
Production on the new episodes is expected to begin in August, and the showrunners shot down the idea of Season 4 being billed as “the final season.”
“There is always the potential for more,” Modrovich told the site.
In “Lucifer,” starring Tom Ellis, 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.
