Hey NBC, You Saved 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine,' So How About 'Lucifer?'
After Fox revealed it was canceling Lucifer, fans of the fantasy crime drama rallied with the heat of a thousand hells. The hashtag #SaveLucifer rapidly made its way across Twitter as loyal viewers held out hope the show might be rescued from ending after only its third season. As of Friday, May 11, that hope got a bit closer to becoming reality when NBC announced it was saving Brooklyn Nine-Nine from cancellation. If the network could keep Andy Samberg on TV, could it also pick up the beloved Lucifer?
As Zimbio shared on Friday, the series’s executive producer, Joe Henderson, promoted a big cliffhanger he said was designed to keep the show safe.
“We created a season finale with a huge cliffhanger so that there was no way Fox could cancel us,” he wrote. Instead, we’re going to frustrate the hell out of you fans. I’m so sorry for that.”
Actor Tom Ellis has also been outspoken on the platform, showing support for fans and encouraging followers not to lose hope.
“We are all so proud of it and so overwhelmed with the outpouring of love for the show,” he wrote early Sunday morning. “TV is changing and people are being heard so all I can say is #SaveLucifer.”
And as of Sunday, the Lucifer fandom had made a major impact. Over 1.2 million tweets with the #SaveLucifer hashtag had been posted, and that number continues to grow.
With so much support, it would be a shock if some platform (we’re looking at you, Netflix and Hulu) didn’t pick up the show — even if one of Fox’s competitors won’t.
For now, keep showing your support!
