The “Lucifer” Series Really Is Dead

Shortly after FOX announced last week that there would no fourth season of the Tom Ellis-led supernatural drama “Lucifer,” a #SaveLucifer campaign was launched as fan reaction to the cancellation stormed social media.

While a deal for fellow cancelled FOX series “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” was worked out which saw it saved from an axing, the same is looking increasingly unlikely for “Lucifer” with one of the best chances for the show’s continuation – The CW – passing on the series.

CW president Mark Pedowitz tells Deadline: “We have not had conversations, there have been no discussions. We have been focused on own development, we are happy with what we have.” The CW previously rescued “Supergirl” from CBS and “Black Lightning” after Fox picked up the pilot.

The show’s producer Warners TV had been exploring finding a new home for the show including Hulu and the upcoming DC Universe, but The CW was seen as the best bet. For now no other network has expressed interest publicly in acquiring the series.
