On June 15th, when it was almost too late, Netflix announced their pick up of Fox’s canceled Lucifer. We wrote a story with reasons the show should return and, you can imagine, we were in on the happiness that came with the news. Fans, all around the world, rejoiced along with the show’s stars (check out some videos below) but then the questions started: how many episodes would season four include, how long until it comes on, will it all drop on one day or weekly, and what happens next for the show itself? We have some of those answers and we’ll add some fans hopes for what will unfold for Chloe (Lauren German) and Lucifer (Tom Ellis).
Netflix will air the fourth season as ten episodes which begin filming in August, according to star Lauren German. Speculatively, we can expect the episodes to be available somewhere in 2019. Netflix isn’t known to put their shows up in a weekly format which means fans, who’ll have been waiting a while at this point, will be able to binge the entire fourth season as quickly as they want. Our guess is that Netflix will use the data on how many fans binge the show and the time it takes to gauge the possibility of a fifth season. Additionally, the showrunners do not plan on adding the bonus episodes into the ten ordered by Netflix and they’ll continue running episodes for 43 minutes.
These lovely people came out to support in full force last night. What an amazing evening. Thank you so much guys. I love you. ?????? @GeffenPlayhouse #skeletoncrewgp— DB Woodside (@dbwofficial) June 24, 2018

About the show’s future plot points, the only real rumor we know is that the fourth season plans will be split into two parts and a mysterious figure from Lucifer’s past will appear at some point in the future. Their lips are sealed on who that person may be, though. So, what do fans want to see? Well, before you read on, be warned there are spoilers from here on out. If you aren’t caught up, go back to the home page.
Many fans want to know what happens now that Chloe has seen Lucifer’s true face. Will the show embrace it and allow Chloe to continue to feel the same way, or will they find a way around it and have her forget? Other fans are looking into lighter topics of wonder while they wait, like which songs could Tom Ellis sing in the future episodes? That is a great question considering how wonderful he is at singing. The top answers include, well you could probably guess it, songs about the devil. Whatever comes next, our main hope is that the show stays true to form and continues to deliver excellent character development and acting with a storyline that keeps us wanting more.
