Jennifer Salke, the recently appointed head of Amazon Studios, spoke with Deadline about the company's decision to rescue The Expanse following its cancellation by Syfy, and touched on the possibility that Lucifer could receive a similar reprieve.
"We were talking about Lucifer," she said in an interview conducted Thursday. "I know that international, especially the U.K. group, was really bullish on that show, I haven't checked in on that today, but I heard conversations were ongoing on that yesterday."
Based on the DC/Vertigo character created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Keith and Mike Dringenberg, Lucifer follows the story of heaven's fallen angel, Lucifer Morningstar (played by Tom Ellis), as he helps an LAPD detective (played by Lauren German) solve crimes. Fox canceled the series last month following three seasons, leading to social-media campaigns to save Lucifer, either by convincing the network to reverse its decision, or by finding the show a new home.
Some thought Lucifer might find a savior at The CW, home to numerous DC comics adaptations, but network President Mark Pedowitz said there have been no such discussions.
Lucifer is currently available to be streamed on Hulu.
