Lucifer’s Netflix Resurrection is the Series at its Absolute Best

Lucifer has always been one of my fave series, but I’d be the first to admit that I wondered what it would look like if it was on cable vs network TV. It turns out that FOX’s cancellation of the show last spring was a blessing in disguise. Its resurrection on Netflix has allowed Lucifer to become the complex, edgy, naughty romp that was always just under the surface, and I couldn’t be happier.

Warning: minor spoilers ahead!

Eve Lucifer Season 4

A show about the Devil himself comes with certain expectations, and while the writers performed miracles within the confines of a regular network, Netflix has opened up so many possibilities. Whether they’re dealing with the fallout of Chloe (Lauren German) discovering Lucifer’s (Tom Ellis) true identity to his old flame Eve (Inbar Lavi) coming to town (Eve, as in the Garden of Eden), this is the show at its most free. Lucifer is torn between who he was and who he’s become, and he’s not the only character questioning everything he thought he knew.

If you’re concerned that the wit and humor may be sacrificed, have no fear. If anything, it’s even more refined, as is the emotional vulnerability of all the characters. The police procedural aspect is still a part of the show — so we get to see the team in action — but it leans more heavily on a serialized arc. It’s also sexy as all heck (can you say orgies, nudist communities, and ass-less suit pants)!

Season 4 is simply the Lucifer we’ve always wanted.

Now that it’s the series it has always deserved to be, may this be the first of many seasons.
