“I was expecting [their rejection], I wasn’t disappointed by the news. I knew it was coming because, from what I’ve learned about the show and what I’ve learned about the business behind the show, it just was not the right fit.”
Instead, Ellis believes a streaming service like Netflix, Amazon or Hulu is Lucifer’s best chance of Season 4 revival:
“If it were to move forward that seems to be the strongest option right now. [I’m] putting [my] energy into the #SaveLucifer campaign to try to find a [new] home [for the series].
While eternal damnation in the cancellation graveyard seems likely, Ellis salutes Lucifer fans for their passion in attempting to save the show:
“I’d have moped around for a few days trying to get my head around [the cancellation] and then moved on. But in this circumstance it’s been very difficult to ignore the noise – the outpouring of love for the show has mirrored how I’ve felt about it.
“The response has spurred me on to at least go, ‘OK, well I’m going to go and take part in these conversations’. When you spend so much time working on something it’s hard not to be passionate about it, certainly for me, and the producers want to harness my passion for it and take it around because it’s helpful for them.”
