It previously aired on Fox in America and was later released on Amazon Prime in the UK, but seeing as the show has been revived by Netflix, it will now air internationally on the streaming giant, meaning British viewers will no longer have to wait for the new episodes.
Lucifer series four will run for ten episodes but will be split into two parts, with a mid-season break taking place after episode five.
It is likely, therefore, that Netflix will drop the first five episodes in one go and there will be a delay before we get to see the second half of the season.
Will Netflix have Lucifer series 1-3?
The previous three seasons will indeed move over to Netflix.
Ok people asking in UK #Luciferseason 4 will premiere next year on @NetflixUK and season 1-3 will also become available but until then you can still watch it on @AmazonUK 🇬🇧😈
Series star Tom Ellis had previously told RadioTimes.com how the fan campaign had motivated him to work to revive the series, saying, “The outpouring of love for the show has mirrored how I’ve felt about it. The response has spurred me on to at least go, ‘OK, well I’m going to go and take part in these conversations’.”
Showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich said the #SaveLucifer campaign played a big part in Netflix’s decision to revive the show.
“They really noticed it,” Henderson told TV Line. “The fans were heard, and that’s the biggest thing that we should convey. They saw the passion of the fans, and apparently a number of people over there just like the show.”
Who’s in the cast of Lucifer series 4?
Tom Ellis and Lauren German will reprise their roles as Lucifer Morningstar and Detective Chloe Decker.
Kevin Alejandro will also be back as Detective Dan Espinoza, as will Lesley-Ann Brandt as Mazikeen, Aimee Garcia as Ella Lopez and Rachael Harris as Dr Linda Martin, among others.
Prison Break star Inbar Levi is joining the cast as Eve (as in Adam and). She is fed up with Adam and is pining for Lucifer, her rebellious first love.
Newcomer Vinessa Vidotto also joins the line-up as angel Remiel, who is described as the “classic little-sister” to DB Woodside’s mighty Amenadiel.
What can we expect from Lucifer series 4?
The complete episode list for Lucifer’s fourth season is as follows:
Everything’s Okay, written by Joe Henderson

Series four is expected to revisit Chloe’s discovery about Lucifer. When we last saw her in the bonus episode Boo Normal, Chloe was struggling to come to terms with Lucifer revealing his true devil face to her, and co-showrunner Modrovich believes Chloe will be taking a “journey” in the new season.
“She wouldn’t just accept it right away. She’s going to go through all the emotions that we’ve been through, the audience,” he told TV Line. “For her to be able to see his struggle, every single side of him, and she is going to feel a little bit like what he says in the penultimate episode, which is ‘I feel like you’ve seen one side of me.'”
