The date means that the show has returned almost exactly a year on from the day the series was first cancelled.
The drama previously aired on Fox in the United States and was later released on Amazon Prime Video in the UK.
Now however the show is available at the same time internationally, meaning British viewers will no longer have to wait for new episodes.
“I think the fact that everyone is going to see it at the same time now is something I’m really excited about,” star Tom Ellie told The Wrap. “‘Cause when the show was on Fox, it started on Fox and then it slowly travelled around the world on various things and people weren’t always up to date with where we were at on Fox. So now there’s been this big hiatus before season four, it gives everyone an opportunity to catch up. And then we can all watch it together, which is going to be fun hopefully, and nerve-wracking.”
Lucifer season 4 first look (Netflix)
Lucifer season four is made up of ten episodes, beginning with the season opener ‘Everything’s Okay’ and ending with the finale ‘Who’s Da New King Of Hell?’
Is there a trailer for Lucifer season 4?
Oh yes, and as well as all the joy we’ve come to expect from Tom Ellis as Lucifer, the trailer gives us a first proper look at the new addition to the Lucifer family: Inbar Lavi’s Eve.
Check out the video below, showing everything we can expect from the new season.
Before the trailer itself, Netflix released a teaser featuring its three key stars – Tom Ellis, Lauren German and Inbar Lavi – and let’s just say they know what their fans want…
The 90-seconds of footage promises a “very juicy” scene between the trio before Tom Ellis shows some skin while teasing the new episodes…
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 season 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. She will be joined by Graham McTavish (Outlander, Preacher) as Father Kinley, a “kind, deeply empathetic and revered priest.”
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 season 4?
The complete episode list for Lucifer’s fourth season is as follows:
Everything’s Okay, written by Joe Henderson
Somebody’s Been Reading Dante’s Inferno, written by Idly Modrovich
O, Ye Of Little Faith, Father, written by Jason Ning
All About Eve, written by Chris Rafferty
Expire Erect, written by Mike Costa
Orgy Pants to Work, written by Aiyana White
Devil Is As Devil Does, written by Jen Graham Imada
Super Bad Boyfriend, written by Jason Ning

Season 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.'”

There’s also some suggestion that because the show is on Netflix, the team will be freed up to get a bit more graphic. According to Tom Ellis, this means we might be seeing Lucifer’s bum at some point in the new season.
“I think Joe Henderson, our showrunner, has been adamant that he wants to have my bum on screen for three seasons and now we can finally do that,” he told Entertainment Weekly.
