Lucifer season 4: Netflix boss explains joyous pickup decision

LuciferWe know that there are many people out there who are still celebrating the Lucifer season 4 pickup — after all, we’re one of them! It’s wonderful to know that there are ten episodes coming in 2019, and it’s also exciting that the company seems to be so passionate about the show continuing.

Speaking per reporters at the TCA summer press tour on Sunday, Netflix’s own vice president of original content Cindy Holland had the following to say (via TVLine) about the decision:

Lucifer is a fantastic show that has really resonated with audiences in parts of the world where we have licensed it … so we felt it was important… to try to help that show continue for our fans.”

Basically, what we interpret from this is that Lucifer was saved for two different reasons. For starters, Netflix was seeing a good return from it in the parts of the world where it was airing previously. Beyond that, it had a fantastic campaign to stick around that included social-media trends and more. That was something that made saving it unavoidable for Netflix; they want to have active and engaged followings subscribed to the service and with Lucifer, they have that. It also matters that while the show has a diehard following, it also has a mainstream one. It’s going to have a large total viewer figure that will probably burn through these ten episodes rather quickly.

Once Lucifer season 4 premieres, hopefully we will get a sense that there will be a season 5 soon after that. We do think that this is something that Netflix would like, mostly because moving the show’s digital footprint over from Hulu to Netflix in America is no small feet. We don’t think that they would have gone through that some sort of trouble if they thought it was going to be one more season and that’s it.
