Amazon Studios 'talking about' bringing Lucifer back from the dead
Presented by: stark.george
It wouldn't be the first time a streaming service has come to the rescue of a canceled show, but before fans of the recently-killed Lucifer get too excited, we must warn you: Plans to bring the show back from the dead are far from set in stone.
In a recent interview with Deadline, Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke discussed the chances of whether the studio is interested in resurrecting the cult drama, after they recently did the same for former SYFY show The Expanse.
Salke revealed: "We were talking about Lucifer. I know that international, especially the UK group, was really bullish on that show, I haven’t checked in on that today (Thursday), but I heard conversations were ongoing on that yesterday."
There has been no further comment from Salke or Amazon Studios as yet.
The lead character of the series, Lucifer Morningstar was created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth, and Mike Dringenberg, and taken from the comic book series The Sandman. He later became the protagonist of the spin-off comic book series Lucifer, written by Mike Carey. Both were published by DC Comics' Vertigo imprint.
Lucifer was brought to life on the small screen by Tom Kapinos, and the show premiered on Fox on Jan. 25, 2016. However, due to a “ratings-based decision,” after three seasons, Fox canceled the show last month.
Fans of the show were of course upset at the cancellation, and even started a #SaveLucifer campaign. Actor Kevin Alejandro, who played Dan, recently spoke to SYFY WIRE about the final episodes and the campaign, which you can read more about here.
