Hallelujah, Lucifans! We’ve reached the Promised Land, as “Lucifer” has finally received a Season 4 premiere date at Netflix.
The former Fox drama’s return date was unveiled in a teaser dropped by the streaming service Wednesday, which revealed the fourth season of “Lucifer” will launch May 8. The short clip, which you can view above, also revealed a whole lot of star Tom Ellis.
Here’s the description for Season 4: “Reeling from the aftermath of Chloe seeing his devil face, Lucifer faces a new challenge: Eve, the original sinner herself, is back. Does she want revenge for when he tempted her out of Eden oh so many years ago … or something else entirely?”
“Lucifer” found salvation with Netflix last spring, when the streaming service ordered a fourth season of the show in June, one month after it had been canceled by Fox.
The series stars Ellis as Lucifer Morningstar, Lauren German as Detective Chloe Decker, Kevin Alejandro as Detective Dan Espinoza, D.B. Woodside as Amenadiel, Lesley-Ann Brandt as Maze, Aimee Garcia as Ella Lopez and Rachael Harris as Dr. Linda Martin. Season 4 also starts series newcomers Inbar Lavi as Eve and Graham McTavish as Father Kinley.
“Lucifer” is produced for Netflix by Jerry Bruckheimer Television in association with Warner Bros. Television. Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, Joe Henderson, Ildy Modrovich, Sheri Elwood and KristieAnne Reed are executive producers of the series, which was developed by Tom Kapinos and is based on the characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for Vertigo, from DC Entertainment.
