The devilishly awesome television series, Lucifer has been saved by Netflix after being cancelled by Fox TV. The announcement was made after a month long Twitter campaign by the stars of Lucifer, led by the devil himself Tom Ellis and loyal fans to #SaveLucifer.  

The show will become a Netflix original and pick up on the four season of the show. It’s is available on multiple platforms around the world. This may be the reason for the late pick up.
