Netflix has picked up the DC Comics adaptation Lucifer from executive producers Joe Henderson and Ildy Modrovich for a fourth season on the streaming giant.

But they did such incredible work they did in the previous episode that Ildy wrote – it was satisfying. And I guess, them not being in the finale also gave us room to dig deeper with our other characters: Ella and her fate, Dan and his breaking point, and of course Lucifer and Chloe."20comments
