#SaveLucifer has yet to come off, but Season 4 of the cancelled FOX series will see the light of day, in a sense.
“We filmed two extra episodes that were going to be shown as part of Season 4, because they’re like, standalone episodes.
There were a few standalone episodes this year, so we did two more of those. But now that season four is… well, certainly not happening on Fox, they are going to show those episodes on Monday. So it’s like a Blu-ray, DVD, bonus extra episode of Lucifer.”
As for cancellation at FOX, Ellis says he and the cast were blindsided by the reaper’s scythe, as they fully expected Season 4 to happen:
“The thing that none of us expected was the cancellation, so when we were filming we were like, ‘Oh, they’re gonna love this, I wonder what’s going to happen next season.
It’s a weird thing where it’s been a long time coming in that moment, and it wasn’t planned as the final moment of Lucifer, and if it is – and I sincerely hope it isn’t – then what a way to go.
I remember reading that for the first time, and the hairs on my arms just went crazy. We’d been waiting for that, and I am very keen on telling the story of what’s next.”
