The Devil is Coming Back
If you can’t tell with my fascination with the devil in television, I’m eagerly trying to fill the gap between now and the new season of Lucifer. I want more Luci! And now, I have a little info gathered to share on what we can expect from season 4 of Lucifer.
First of all, according to TV Line, season 4 is coming this year. So at least there is that. Netflix, who picked up the show after FOX canceled it after season 3, is trying to do the show justice. Tom Ellis, the actor playing Lucifer in the show, confirms.
“Netflix really wanted to have Lucifer because they really love the show that we already had,” Ellis said at a convention. “So we’ve been careful, we don’t want to change our show too much because that’s the show that people really liked.”
Some changes expected to the show is the length. Instead of 20+ episodes per season, it’s just going to be 10. My heart. However, some restrictions from television can be lifted for a show on Netflix, including teases of showing Lucifer’s butt. I might be able to call that an even trade.
New Temptations and Complications
As far as story-line, some information has been teased. Firstly, the biggest conflict seems to be coming from an “obsessed” priest. Graham McTavish is playing Father Kinley, a holy man convinced that the devil walks the earth. He prophesies that when the devil finds his first love it will rain evil down upon the world. So of course, Father Kinley will be trying to stop Lucifer from getting closer to Chloe.
But Chloe isn’t the only romantic prospect in season 4. The show is going to introduce Eve. Yeah, that Eve. The only who ate the apple because the devil told her to. I’m interested in seeing how the infamous story is told from Lucifer’s point of view.
According to Ellis, seeing Eve complicates things because it “brings back so much for Lucifer, about the man he used to be—or the Devil he used to be. She’s never forgotten about him. And she loves him.”
I find the wording of the prophecy and the sudden introduction of Eve to be very interesting. “First love,” it says. What if Eve was Lucifer’s first love, and it’s Eve that Father Kinley needs to worry about and not Chloe?
But Most Importantly…
But, seriously, no word at all about how Chloe reacts to finding out that Lucifer is actually THE Lucifer? None at all? (I don’t count the “bonus” episodes because it gives little to no evidence that they take place after Chloe sees Lucifer’s devil face).
The show is so good about Chloe ignoring all the signs. So I’m half inclined to believe she’s going to write it off as hallucinations from stress and we’ll be no closer to Luciloe. Chlucifer? I’m going to go with Chlucifer because it sounds like “clue” which is what detectives find.
How psyched are you for Lucifer season 4? Do you think Lucifer is ever going to learn from his many, many mistakes?
