Lucifer star Tom Ellis has pledged to keep fighting for the series future.
Following its cancellation by network FOX, fans of the series have been galvanised on social media to campaign for a pickup elsewhere.
Discussing the cancellation with TVLine Ellis remained positive about the potential future but isn’t making any promises:
“I’ve done press in various parts of the world, and I’m fully aware that this show is much more popular than what it had seemed to be on Fox.” Ellis said. “I’m not surprised about people being angry. I just wasn’t ready for this tsunami of love that came with it.”
“I don’t want to promise anything for anybody, because there are so many things that have to align for things to happen,” Ellis said. The actor went on to say the fan outcry “has created a conversation” regarding the cancellation and its potential reversal. “But I didn’t have hope, and I do have hope now. And as long as there is hope, I will keep fighting. Because I think that’s what our fans want us to do.”
Could a move to the DC Universe streaming service be on the cards?
