Fans lamenting the cancellation of Lucifer can get a brief moment of solace. Two episodes of the series that were filmed earlier this spring and were meant to be part of season 4 will now air back-to-back on Monday, May 28th at 8 p.m., giving viewers two new episodes to watch after the series was cancelled and the #SaveLucifer/#PickUpLucifer push is still going on.
The show has yet to find a new home, and CW president Mark Pedowitz said on Thursday that there was no discussion about them picking up the series, despite the fact that in the past the network took over Supergirl from CBS, picked up Black Lightning after Fox passed on it, and absorbed Constantine after the show’s one-and-done season on NBC.
The synopsis for the first of the two episode, Boo Normal, says:
Lucifer and the team investigate the murder of a child psychiatrist, while Ella thinks about a big childhood secret that she’s been hiding. House alum guest-stars House alum Charlyne Yi as a very special friend of Ella’s who just might be a ghost.
The second episode, ‘Once Upon a Time’, is directed by series regular Kevin Alejandro and is said to be about:
Lucifer’s mom creates an alternate dimension in which Lucifer now lives in a world where he not only has never met Chloe, but is granted the freedom of choice. American Gods author Neil Gaiman voices God, who serves as the narrator of this fairy tale.
Those seem like pretty awesome episodes to have left on the table. Glad to see Fox sharing them with viewers so quickly while the series is still being talked about and shopped.
