Netflix has finally announced the release date for Lucifer season 4. And, depending on your time zone, it announced the release date 666 hours in advance. We’re sure that’s pure coincidence.
Based very loosely on the Neil Gaiman version of the character from the Vertigo comics, Lucifer tells the story of a devil who got bored with his job and took a vacation. Moving to Los Angeles, Lucifer (Tom Ellis) encounters a police Detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German), and becomes enthralled with the effects she has on his powers. He goes on to become a civilian consultant to the police to continue studying why she seems to depower him.
As we said, it is very loosely based on the comics. Although, Neil Gaiman did provide the voice of God in a season 3 bonus episode entitled “Once Upon a Time,” that told the story of an alternate timeline for the characters.
Lucifer ran on the Fox network in the U.S. for three seasons before it was canceled. Thanks to fan outcry, the series ended up being picked up by Netflix for a 10-episode fourth season with options for further episodes. Negotiations came down to the literal last minute of the actor’s contracts as Netflix was having to work to secure the rights to the first three seasons.
For those that need a refresher where everything left off in season 3 and what’s to come, Netflix released the following blurb:
Reeling from the aftermath of Chloe seeing his devil face, Lucifer faces a new challenge: Eve, the original sinner herself, is back. Does she want revenge for when he tempted her out of Eden oh so many years ago… or something else entirely?
Lucifer Season 4 will premiere May 8 on Netflix.
