'Lucifer' Season 4 Air Date, Spoilers, News & Update: Major Changes that Fans Should Expect
“Lucifer” Season 4 will not be coming out anytime soon as production is expected to end this December. The cast and crew started filming the fourth installment in August and will be wrapping things up next month.
Following that, “Lucifer” Season 4 will enter post-production where editors will polish everything that’s been filmed. There’s still no announcement when exactly the show will return and even its Twitter account hasn’t posted anything after announcing that Netflix will be picking up the series.
While Netflix is keeping everything under wrap, major changes have already been made by the streaming giant. One of these is the number of episodes of “Lucifer” Season 4. The fourth installment will have the least episode count compared to three of its previous runs, although each episode has been given a time extension.
"We'll probably stick roughly to our 43 minutes," Co-showrunners Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich told TVLine. "That's part of what we're going to talk to Netflix about. I think we might have a bit of room for flexibility, hopefully, so if there's a scene we love and we don't want to cut it, we're hoping that now we won't have to. But we're not suddenly going to have hour-and-a-half episodes!” This is actually good news for “Lucifer” Season 4 as it means the series will follow its major plotline moving forward.
It’s no secret by now that FOX and other large television networks handle their shows differently than Netflix. Netflix’s style of storytelling employs a compact plotline where each episode doesn’t have any filler narrative to them. It strictly follows the major story of a series and although nothing has been announced yet, “Lucifer” Season 4 will likely have the same formula.
The length and episode count are strong indications of this. There’s also Netflix’s reputation of injecting a lot of gore and nudity into its show and “Lucifer” Season 4 might very well have both this element heightened when it finally airs. While it’s still uncertain how these changes will affect the performance “Lucifer”, fans are simply elated that a fourth installment is happening after FOX canceled the series months ago.
