From Hell, He Rises: ‘Lucifer’ Returns to Fox This May, After Netflix Saving Grace; FanX 2019 Appearance

Published on April 20, 2019

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah—In my previous piece, fans across the globe felt the sting as their favorite devil, Lucifer, met its maker with Fox, after the network announced its cancellation after three seasons. Fans took to social media with haste and anger, giving rise to one of the largest fan-based petitions the world of social media has ever seen—#SAVELUCIFER.

Hearing the screaming, angry, and hell-bent prayers of fans, Netflix answered last June, announcing that it was resurrecting our favorite devil, thanks to the power of social media.

Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, fans can now rise with the series’ producers, Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich, alongside show frontrunners, Tom Ellis, Aimee Garcia, and Lauren German, as the #SaveLucifer campaign took the TV network by storm.

While GritDaily was able to speak with Henderson, Modrovich, and Ellis last June, we have not yet reached out to the team for post-cancellation comments, as they have been busy traveling for upcoming events.

Now, Lucifer makes its presence known again at FanX 2019 in Salt Lake City, Utah, where millions of comic-book nerds alike come together for the semi-annual multi-genre pop culture expo. Produced by Dan Farr and Bryan Brandenburg, FanX is Utah’s most attended convention, according to the Governor’s Office of Economic Development.

From Lucifer, actors Tom Ellis and Aimee Garcia are in attendance to greet fans and talk about what surprises await us in the upcoming fourth season.
