If you've ever thought that the cancel notices are all drama and the series heads know what's going on way in advance… Joe Hendeson of Lucifer shows us that is definitely not the case. Word came down today that the series he co-showruns and executive produces was not going to get a fourth season and he took to Twitter to talk about it. We posted earlier his initial reaction, which talked about him being heart broken… but it's the stuff after that is interesting.
Seems they really had no idea the axe was going to fall and they created a huge cliffhanger for the season finale hoping to make it that Fox couldn't cancel them. But they did and now he's telling folks that fans are going to be frustrated as hell by the ending. But, he also calls it the best hour of television he's ever been lucky enough to write. He says it will wrap up the season, but sets up a fourth season and he hopes that maybe the show can find another home.
He also points out that they have an amazing writing staff that other shows should definitely hire… and he advises himself and possibly others to avoid swearing in posts following getting cancellation word or news sites will pick it up.
Lucifer's season finale airs Monday May 14th on Fox.
