“Lucifer” found salvation with Netflix last spring when the streaming service ordered a fourth season of the show in June, one month after it had been canceled by Fox. Now that we’re close to a year out from the end of the fantasy drama’s third year, star Tom Ellis sat down with TheWrap to talk about the changes you will see when “Lucifer’s” 10-episode Season 4 launches Wednesday.
After all, the devil is sure to have the chance to be more devilish on a streaming service than when he’s confined by Standards and Practices departments that watch over broadcast television, isn’t he?
“Well, we had to be a bit careful, ’cause even though we’ve got new boundaries that we can work in, we didn’t want to change the show so much,” Ellis told TheWrap in the interview above. “Because I think one of the reasons the show really worked and had such a broad appeal to people was that it didn’t get vulgar, it didn’t push it too far in certain departments. That being said, we do sort of push it a little bit more than we were allowed to on Fox. For example, you may see a bit more flesh this year, certainly Lucifer’s, than you have in previous seasons. You may hear the odd word that you wouldn’t have heard before.”
