As the campaign to #SaveLucifer continues to gain momentum, there has been a glimmer of hope from Amazon Studios.
Amazon bosses have confirmed that talks have taken place in relation to picking up the cancelled Fox drama.
Deadline reports that the new head of Amazon Studios, Jennifer Salke said: “We were talking about Lucifer.
“I know that international, especially the UK group, was really bullish on that show, I haven’t checked in on that today (Thursday), but I heard conversations were ongoing on that yesterday.”
The news comes as Amazon has picked up another cancelled show, The Expanse.
The science fiction series was axed by SyFy last month due to a ratings drop.
Distraught fans pulled out all the stops to catch the attention of Amazon bosses, even hiring a plan with a banner that read “Save The Expanse” to fly over the company’s headquarters.
One such fan was none other than Game of Thrones creator George R R Martin.
Martin tweeted his support for the Save The Expanse campaign and it appears to have caught the eye of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos.
Salke added: “At the same time, Jeff Bezos was getting emails from everyone from George R R Martin to every captain of industry, like the founder of Craigslist, and they were all writing, saying, there’s this show, it’s so great, you have to see it, you have to buy it or save it.”
Will Lucifer season 4 be on Amazon?
It’s not confirmed yet, but it’s looking more and more likely that Amazon Studios will pick up the series.
Actress Lauren German who plays Detective Chloe Decker in the series told fans at Melbourne ComicCon last week that there would be some sort of announcement about the show’s future on June 16.
She said: “Now, I have heard, not to get anyone’s hopes up or anything because I’m certainly am proceeding as if I’m looking for a new job but, I’ve heard that there is a chance a streaming channel could pick us up and we will hear about it by June 16.
“So, if it happens, amazing, and if not, you know, onward.”
She added: “Yeah, I was completely surprised that we didn’t get a season four.”
Whether June 16 has anything to do with Amazon’s involvement remains to be seen.
Fans have been expressing their support for a potential Amazon deal on Twitter.
One fan tweeted: “Please, oh please let Amazon announce today that they’ve saved Lucifer. I will subscribe to Prime without a second thought! #SaveLucifer #PickUpLucifer.”
So at the moment, it looks like Amazon Studios could potentially step in and take over the right to Lucifer for a future fourth season.
For now, legions of dedicated fans are continuing to express their support for the drama online.
Lucifer seasons 1 to 3 are streaming on Amazon Prime
