Massive Outcry Of Fans And Angry Petitions Can Actually Bring Back Lucifer, Here’s How It Can Happen


This series inspired by Vertigo Comics might just relocate to the DC Universe.

Earlier in May, WB and DC Entertainment made the official announcement of their upcoming video streaming platform, DC Universe. It was first mentioned during the fall of 2016, and although a launch date wasn’t declared, various projects have already been approved, including the live-action Titans series, an animated Harley Quinn series, and a Swamp  Thing live-action series. Now a few people are wondering if Lucifer is also going to find a home in DC Universe.

The idea is quite fascinating. Lucifer had very humble numbers (0.8 demo rating and 3.3 million viewers) on Monday nights in the current season, but, the show has a vocal fanbase. Shortly after the cancellation news broke out, the fans had already launched an online petition to protect the show, either by relocating it to another TV network or a streaming platform such as Hulu, Amazon or Netflix. The fans dominated social media ad a hashtag #SaveLucifer also started trending on Twitter. Although at present we can’t say whether the campaign will meet success since Brooklyn Nine-Nine, another show canceled by FOX failed to get a place on Hulu, but, later NBC picked it up. Here, DC Universe might be an option.

Warner Bros TV has made Lucifer, but, not just that, availability of a ready-to-air series could benefit DC Universe. Titans is presently filming for DC Universe, and Swamp Thing is only in development. Metropolis won’t even start filming until later in 2018. If they get Lucifer, then DC Universe will have two live-action series on its new streaming service when it debuts later this year.

Also, since a launch date hasn’t been announced for DC Universe, we don’t have a clear idea of when it would launch. If they pick up Lucifer, then it would take a good bit of time. Also, there is the fact whether fans are willing to pay for another streaming platform to watch Lucifer. Despite having comic book origins, Lucifer is not a regular show which might mean that Lucifer’s fans are not your regular comic book based shows’ lovers such as Titans or the Swamp Thing.

Although it is reported that Warner Bros could be searching for a new network for Lucifer (via Deadline), it is possible that the show might be over, by all means, a scenario which will not make fans happy since Lucifer’s third season will end on a cliffhanger.

“We created a season finale with a huge cliffhanger so that there was no way Fox could cancel us,” showrunner Joe Henderson Tweeted. “Instead, we’re going to frustrate the hell out of you fans. I’m so sorry for that.”

We will let you know if there are any future developments relate to Lucifer. For now, the show’s finale will be aired today on FOX.
