‘Lucifer’ Fans Are Angry As Hell About Show’s Cancellation

Fan-favorite fantasy police procedural Lucifer has been cancelled by Fox after three seasons.

The drama starred Tom Ellis as the Devil, Lucifer Morningstar, who became a consultant for the Los Angeles Police Department after growing bored with his role as the Lord of Hell.

The Monday night television series was based on the character created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth, and Mike Dringenberg as first seen in Vertigo comic book series The Sandman. The character later headed his own titular spinoff series.

Lucifer’s season 3 finale, set for Monday, May 14, will serve as its series finale.

“It has been the most amazing experience over the past 3 years playing Lucifer and falling in love with you, the fans,” Ellis wrote on Twitter Friday.

“It fills me with great sadness to confirm the rumors that some of you have been asking,” Ellis wrote, adding the abrupt cancellation left the actor “gutted.”

Writes fan Sarah Somerhalder on Twitter, “How could they cancel Lucifer? How?”

The show “denounces homophobia, sexism, racism,” and has “LGBT+ characters,” Somerhalder writes, adding the show is “actually funny but it also makes you cry sometimes.”

“We don’t have any other shows like that,” Somerhalder wrote, adding a plea aimed at the @FOXTV Twitter account.

The series’ cancellation has since given rise to the #SaveLucifer hashtag, aimed at rallying fans in a concentrated effort to convince the network to reconsider pulling the plug.

“I love you for making noise,” Lucifer showrunner Ildy Modrovich wrote on Twitter, prompting viewers to employ the hashtags #Lucifer and #SaveLucifer.
