Netflix has saved former Fox drama from cancellation, with a pick-up for a fourth season. Debuting on Jan. 25, 2016, “Lucifer” focuses on Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis), the Devil, who is bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell. He resigns his throne and abandons his kingdom for Los Angeles, where he ends up running his nightclub “Lux”. He becomes involved in a murder case with Detective Chloe Decker, and is subsequently invited to be a consultant to the LAPD.
After three seasons (and 55 episodes), Fox opted against a renewal, and that set the stage for talk of “Lucifer” moving to another outlet.
“Lucifer” is the third canceled network series to be revived, with former Fox sitcom “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” heading to NBC, and Tim Allen comedy “Last Man Standing,” which was axed by ABC after six seasons last year, heading to Fox.
