Currently, no other network has responded to the #SaveLucifer and #PickUpLucifer campaigns, who have seen their hashtags trending on Twitter. However, that isn’t to say talks are happening privately, as hinted by Tom Ellis.
When asked on Newsnight whether a platform such as Netflix would step in to save the show, Tom Ellis said: “Listen, I’m not in a place to talk about conversations that are or are not happening. All I know is that a conversation has been sparked by this and we are trying to find a place. I think the obvious place would be somewhere like that.”
“Those are potentially exciting places,” he added. “But who knows. Watch this space, is all I can say.”
So, although there’s no official word on Lucifer yet, fans will look to the Brooklyn Nine-Nine success story. The Andy Samberg cop comedy was also cancelled by Fox, but was then taken up by US network NBC. And think about it: if somebody’s going make a similar network give in to temptation and renew Lucifer, it’ll be Morningstar, right?
