Lucifer is returning for its fourth season solely on Netflix or so we thought. Netflix in the UK has nonetheless but to get seasons one to a few and the fourth season has been put into query too. Right here’s what we find out about if and when Lucifer can be on Netflix within the UK.
Simply to catch you up just a little. Lucifer was a FOX present earlier than it was canceled final yr by FOX. After an enormous fan marketing campaign, it was then revived by Netflix final summer season.
Regardless of Netflix choosing up the present and subsequently getting all three earlier seasons in the US and Canada, that’s but to duplicate in the UK.
As of the time of publishing, the collection continues to be actively promoted by Amazon who manufacturers the collection as a Prime Unique.
We spoke to Patrick Munn who runs TVwise.co.uk who after we requested concerning the contract with Lucifer mentioned: “Not definitively. It’s unclear if it’s a Longmire scenario (which Netflix UK couldn’t carry as a result of WB offered it to different UK patrons) or extra akin to The Expanse (the place the studio will claw again rights to present to the commissioning internet – on this case, Netflix). My cash on the previous.”
Lucifer is barely a first-run Netflix Unique
One essential word concerning the collection too is that Netflix doesn’t embody it as a “world unique”. As a substitute, it lists the collection on its media website as a “first-run” unique. This normally implies that there are current contracts elsewhere. A very good instance is Higher Name Saul the place that’s thought of “first run non-US”.
Tom Ellis who stars in Lucifer within the lead function was constantly requested a concerning its launch on Netflix within the UK and answered with:
Okay individuals asking in UK #Luciferseason four will premiere subsequent yr on @NetflixUK and season 1-Three may also change into out there however till then you’ll be able to nonetheless watch it on @AmazonUK 🇬🇧😈

That strongly means that it’s on the way in which to Netflix UK earlier than its doubtless Might/June 2019 launch.
Total, we’re nonetheless ready for one thing official from Netflix however all the United Kingdom Netflix accounts on all social media have but to say the collection in any respect. In the identical spirit, Amazon Prime hasn’t talked about the present since early 2018.
In conclusion, we’re none the wiser as to when Lucifer can be on Netflix UK however hopefully, it’ll be out earlier than the season four launch on Netflix.
Would you thoughts if season four dropped on Amazon as a substitute of Netflix within the UK? Tell us within the feedback.
