Late last week we got word that the cancelled FOX series Lucifer, based on the DC Vertigo comic book series, was getting picked up by Netflix for a fourth season. Now details have emerged about the renewal via an interview co-showrunner Ildy Modrovich had with TV Line.
The upcoming fourth season will consist of ten episodes. These episodes do not include the two “bonus” episodes that had been originally produced for a Fox fourth season. The episodes will run approximately 43 minutes about the same time as the original episodes. This means that the fourth season will run about half the length of previous seasons which had 22 episodes. How will this affect the story?
Well according to Modrovich, Season 4 on Netflix will cover what was going to be the first half of the original Season 4 arc. She said that, “We were going to have two parts to it anyway, so we’ll just tell a really strong, gnarly first part.” Co-showrunner Joe Henderson added that, “[Doing so] lets us concentrate the story and focus it, and that’s what’s really exciting about this. We have a really strong first half that is now going to make for an amazing story.”
Production for the fourth season is expected to begin sometime in August. Despite the fact that Lucifer was saved in the last minute and that this season is only going to consist of half the episodes, Modrivice is optimistic that this is not the last season for Lucifer saying that, “There is always the potential for more.”
