Lucifer cancelled: Tom Ellis drops MAJOR hint show WILL return | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV


Lucifer fans have been outraged ever since FOX confirmed the cancellation of the drama series and shows Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Exorcist.

Within a matter of days Brooklyn Nine-Nine was picked up by NBC after viewers caused a huge stir on social media.

Although, Lucifer has been a popular topic online with #SaveLucifer and #PickUpLucifer both trending on Twitter, no such arrangement has been made yet.

But Tom Ellis, who plays the lead actor in the series, revealed conversations are ongoing to bring the show back.

“Talks are happening,” Tom Ellis told TV Insider. “It’s not going to be an instantaneous thing like Brooklyn Nine-Nine was.”

He continued: “It’s worth reiterating that to the fans. But we’re not giving up.”

Admitting he was stunned by the public support, he added: “We knew we had a popular show, something people really adored, but not this much.

“I never felt like the numbers on FOX never really reflected the actual popularity of the show.

“That is just modern TV – people find the way to watch a programme the way they want to watch it and this outpouring has suggested exactly that.”

Tom said he was “really shocked” when he discovered the programme was cancelled, but said he and the cast were moved by the fans reaction.

He explained: “If anything, [the fan reaction] has really galvanised us and picked us up from the floor.”

Since the news broke, executive producer and co-writer Joe Henderson said he felt guilty after what happened.

Joe told Forbes: “My first emotion was guilt and thinking what had we just done to our fans.

“I feel terrible knowing we wrote a very big cliffhanger, initially under the impression that we were coming back.”

Joe confessed: “But, seeing our fans rally through this movement, is such a touching feeling.”

Last week, Fox chairman Gary Newman explained why the network had dropped Lucifer, saying it was “a ratings-based decision; we had a very successful late year with all four new dramas renewed”.

He went on to tell US entertainment website Deadline: “We felt like performance-wise, we needed to make that change.”

Lucifer, a series that follows the fallen angel by the same name, was first released on January 25, 2016.

It has had three seasons and stars Lauren, German, Kevin Alejandro, D.B Woodside, Lesley-Ann Brandt and Scarlett Estevez.

Lucifer seasons 1-3 is available to watch on Amazon Prime.
