Netflix resurrects Lucifer for Season 4 after Fox cancelation
The streaming giant has ordered a 10-episode fourth season of the canceled Fox drama starring Tom Ellis. This marks the first time in three-and-a-half years that Netflix has revived a canceled show, since Longmire was picked up in 2014. Netflix was one of several interested buyers for Lucifer.

The deal took time to iron out because Hulu has the streaming rights to the first three seasons. ALSO: Lucifer stars react: "You fans made this happen," tweeted Ellis.
