Last month FOX made the terrible decision to cancel Lucifer. The creators and the fans have been hoping that the series would find a new home to continue the series, and right now it sounds like Amazon Studios is a real option!
According to new Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke, the streaming service has been having discussions on the possibility of bringing the series back. While talking to Deadline, Salke confirmed that these talks are taking place:
"We were talking about Lucifer. I’m not sure where we are on that. I know that international, especially the UK group, was really bullish on that show, I haven’t checked in on that today (Thursday), but I heard conversations were ongoing on that yesterday."
It would be so cool if Amazon actually moved in to save the show and keep it going for a few more seasons. The streaming service did it for The Expanse when Syfy canceled that show for some reason. So there is real hope here!
If the renewal does happen, we'll most likely know by next week. According to star Lauren German, the final date for Lucifer to be renewed is June 16th. She previously had this to say during a panel at Oz Comic-Con:
"It's beautiful. I can't tell you guys how hard it is to hear that the show is ending and then she and I come out here and see all of you and then online the hashtags and the petitions being signed and the campaigns that are going. We don't know that stuff's gonna happen. It just pops up and it's just, you know it's heartwarming, it's amazing and I don't know if all of you know basically you know Fox has cancelled us, so we won't be happening on Fox, but there's a chance that a streaming network might pick us up and that would have to happen by June 16th. It's like we can't contractually audition for anything until June 16th and then, sadly, we are free to go after that. So, we're just praying, praying it happens."
What do you all think about Amazon possibly saving Lucifer?
