Netflix Has Rescued 'Lucifer' From Fox's Cancellation

Netflix has so far not made public how much it paid for the rights to continue with Lucifer.

This is not the first time that Netflix has saved a WBTV show.

The TV culling of 2018 was brutal, but yet another fan-favorite show has found a new home! Reps for Fox and Warner Bros. declined to comment on the length of the pickup, but sources confirm that the streaming giant ordered a 10-episode Season 4. Television series to live on at Netflix; A&E's Longmire came to the streaming service post-cancellation and went for three additional seasons.

The cancellation caused quite a ruckus on social media last month with the #SaveLucifer campaign, which trended across twitter alongside Fox's fellow cancellation Brooklyn Nine-Nine (that series was picked up by NBC shortly after the Fox cancellation).

It is also unclear if Netflix will sell CTV the Canadian rights to broadcast the series but the streamer has worked in tandem with networks before like The Mindy Project.

But the big news is Lucifer and I'm just so happy for the fans of the series who never gave up and rallied together to try to save their show.

Now that the deal is closed, it's cause for celebration for fans of the show. Amazon apparently showed interest, but Netflix ended up coming out on top: Lucifer will officially become a Netflix original production in its fourth season.

Congratulations, Lucifer fans, this is largely responsible because of how awesome you are.
