Why Save Lucifer?
With the #SaveLucifer campaign in full speed, over 200,000 petition signatures, and no intention of stopping anytime soon, it begs to question why should networks and streaming services care? What makes Lucifer so special?
When we hear stories we always get one side, the hero side. Has it ever occurred to us that maybe we got it wrong or maybe we should give the other side a chance? It’s the winner who gets to tell the tale, with Lucifer we get to hear his side of the story.
Despite it’s slightly religious title has nothing to do with religion at all, (it is a crime, mystery, fantasy, comedy drama with a twist) if that is why some networks are so hesitant to picking it up, then let me begin by saying networks should give it the benefit of the doubt.
A Little About Lucifer…
The spotlight is on Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis), ex Lord of Hell, who is extremely bored and unhappy with his life so he decides to take a much needed vacation. Lucifer runs to Los Angeles and becomes a the owner of a trendy nightclub called Lux, with his left hand woman and demon ninja bartender Mazikeen (Lesley-Ann Brandt) by his side. He is the life of the party, his bed often full of both men and women, alcohol almost always in hand. But with the sudden murder of a colleague, Lucifer soon becomes involved with the LAPD and begins to assist Detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German) with cases.
This show appeals to a wide range of audiences; from the LGBTQ+ community to a demographic range that is much wider than the specified 18 – 49 age group. It has a gorgeous cast, absolutely stunning visuals, a killer soundtrack that often pulls from classic rock n’ roll.
Lucifer has an incredible story to tell and very rarely has a poor episode, it should be worth mentioning that this past season Lucifer was up against both The Voice and as well as American Idol, but still managed to bring an average of 3 million viewers and a rating of 0.8. Which unfortunately doesn’t include the other parts of the globe, that watch and love Lucifer.
The show has so much more potential then what has already been given to us by Fox. If given the chance, Lucifer could match one of the biggest kahunas in the business, Game of Thrones. I truly believe it can be that successful, it deserves that chance. Lucifer is at that same level of quality, which is definitely saying something considering it’s on a generic cable station.
Any network would be lucky to have such a passionate and loyal fanbase willing to go to Hell and back
If my words haven’t persuaded networks/streaming services enough, here are two trailers I’ve personally made. The first being for seasons 1 and 2. The second being for the most recent and third season of Lucifer…
This show has my full support (and signature) I want to thank the cast, crew, writers, and everyone involved for all the hard work so far.
