While attending a panel at MCM Comic Con London, over the weekend, the actor once again conveyed his gratitude to fans for resorting to social media to try and save the Vertigo Comic book version, backing the hashtag #SaveLucifer. Ellis further said that the public support might have led to efforts for reviving the show for a Season Four.
“Conversations have started happening as a result of the noise that you guys have been making, so all I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you,” Ellis said, but, he refused to comment on the specifications about the present scenario of the TV series.
After a run of three seasons, Lucifer was canceled by Fox, and it made fans start a social media campaign to either compel the network to reverse the cancellation or for the other networks/streaming platforms to renew the series. The support by fans made Ellis commit to fighting for another season of the show, and Fox has decided to air a couple of standalone episodes which were originally filmed for a potential Season Four, as bonus episodes. These two bonus episodes will be aired tonight from 8 pm ET.
Lucifer premiered in 2016, and it stars Ellis as Lucifer Morningstar, who became fed up of his work as Lord of Hell, and stepped down from his thrown to start a piano bar in Los Angeles. While there, he enjoys helping the L.A.P.D. locate and punish bad guys. The character was first created by Neil Gaiman and Sam Kieth in The Sandman #4 and later got its own spinoff series, and the first series had a 75 issues run.
