Fan petition won’t save Lucifer for a sixth season says showrunner
Following Lucifer‘s renewal for a final season, many fans have expressed their disappointment with the series adaptation coming to an end. That’s why they’ve started a petition to save the show for an eventual sixth season.
However, despite of the fans’ outcry, co-showrunner Ildy Modrovich took to Twitter to address the issue, revealing that the #SaveLucifer campaign won’t have an effect on Netflix and the studio’s final decision of the show’s future and that the upcoming fifth season will still be its final season.
“We know there’s been a lot of confusion over the recent announcement that this is our last season. Many are wondering if they should fight for more?? And while we feel just as sad as many of you do that this marvelous ride is coming to an end, a fight won’t change things right now. But we spoke to our partners at Netflix and WarnerBros, and you should all know TREMENDOUS care and consideration was put into making this decision. In fact, the whole reason they decided to announce that it was our fifth and final season simultaneously is because they know how devoted and passionate our fans (and we!) are and wanted to give y’all (and us!) as much time as they could to accept and process the news. And for that we’re incredibly grateful. But mostly, we’re all beyond grateful that they gave us this new life in the first place. AND a chance to give this story the ending it deerves. And, of course… none of that would have EVER happened if it weren’t for YOU.”
Based very loosely on the Vertigo character, Lucifer is the story of the original fallen angel. Bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, Lucifer Morningstar abandoned his throne. He then retired to Los Angeles, where he has teamed up with LAPD detective Chloe Decker to take down criminals. The show was abruptly canceled by Fox after its third season but was saved by Netflix last June.
Warner Bros. Television produces Lucifer in association with Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Aggressive Mediocrity. The series is vaguely based on characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for Vertigo, from DC Entertainment. Additionally, Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson are the executive producers. Len Wiseman serves as director and executive producer, while Kapinos serves as an executive consultant on the series.
Season 4 of Lucifer is now available on Netflix.
