TV Series LUCIFER Saved By Netflix Thanks To Fans

Last month, TV series Lucifer was axed by network Fox after three seasons. Despite a passionate fanbase and a fantastic cliffhanger of a finale, it seemed all was lost. However, the cast, crew and their loud and proud fanbase decided that if Brooklyn Nine-Nine could be saved, then Lucifer too could maybe find a new home.

Soon enough, the Lucifer family and fans had #SaveLucifer and #PickUpLucifer trending on Twitter worldwide in a bid to catch the eye of another network or streaming service such as Amazon or Netflix. Even BBC’s Newsnight decided to interview star Tom Ellis about the campaign to save the show.

After five weeks of full-on tweeting by their die-hard and casual fans alike, news broke last night that LUCIFER has been rescued by streaming service Netflix – a huge win for fans of the show across the globe.

The cast and crew couldn’t have been more happier about the news after fighting alongside their fans to save the series and to at least produce a fourth season, something which they’ll now be able to do.

Whilst it’s clear that the passion of the Lucifans is a major reason why the television series was saved, it’s the relationship between the cast/crew and the fans online via social media which has helped to bridge the gap to create one big family, with the stars often interacting with fans, live tweeting episodes and posting behind the scenes clips during shooting (we’re looking at you, Aimee Garcia!).

Yesterday, the cast and crew took to Twitter and Instagram to share their delight about the news, thanking the fans for all their support. The most touching of messages was by the show’s youngest star, Scarlett Estevez, who’s  reaction was captured by her parents as they broke the fantastic news to her.

Here’s to Lucifer on Netflix and the fact that if fans shout loud enough, they can be heard.
