I love this show; if you are a Netflix lover, you have more surely come across this witty, crime scene dark world entertainment of a show. Lucifer is an American urban fantasy TV series produced by Tom Kapinos on January 25, 2016.
It is based on the character created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth, and Mike Dringenberg from the comic book series The Sandman, who later became the protagonist of a series of spin-off comic books, both published by DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint. Produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Television, DC Entertainment, and Warner Bros. Television. So here I have added a few facts you might not have known about this show. Let’s see what they truly desired…
- You may have heard Lucifer’s song in this series at his nightclub, but you might not know that Tom Ellis (Lucifer) does his singing in the episode, although he doesn’t play the piano.
- He picked an English accent because he felt Satan looked like a jerk. Instead, he preferred English (Ellis is Welsh).
- Each episode’s title is referenced at least once, with the exception of the pilot. Pay attention to the episode title the next time you’re viewing. Lucifer will mention the episode title by name at some point throughout the show. What a wonderful idea!
- Seasons 1 and 2 were filmed in Vancouver, not Los Angeles. Tom Ellis was discovered by the production team while filming in Vancouver as a singer. They were all out at a karaoke club one night, and Tom decided to take the stage and sing!
- Lucifer is never seen smoking; he is seen in an ashtray next to him with smouldering cigarettes or putting out a cigarette or lighting it, but not ever taking a drag.
- Not once is Jesus referred to or mentioned, not even lightly by any character. Interestingly, Ellis’ sister is identical. He personally grew up in a female household, being the only brother to three wives. Being surrounded by women for most of his childhood, particularly his twin sister, it’s no surprise that Ellis is comfortable with women. Indeed, in the past, he said he’s not exactly a “bloke’s bloke,” becoming more relaxed with women.
- Season 3 of the show was the final one, and it was cancelled.
- The Hashtag #saveLucifer started trending on Twitter after being canceled on May 11, 2018, and on May 12, 2018, the hashtag has over 1 million tweets. Today, on June 2, 2018, #saveLucifer has over 8 million tweets and counting.
- According to Tom Ellis, the pilot was born out of the pilot’s concept during his interview on the Rich Eisen show. Initially, the show was about Lucifer making deals with desperate/despicable people to obtain favors from them later. But after seeing how well the show operates as a police operation and the possible stories that could emerge, the show was redesigned after the pilot.
- Fox canceled the series in its third season, but Netflix later picked it up for a fourth season.
- Keeping with the Devil theme, Netflix announced the release date of Lucifer’s fourth season precisely 666 hours before streaming availability began in the United States at midnight (PST) on May 8, by way of a teaser ad featuring Lucifer (Tom Ellis) emerging from a pool dressed in just swimming trunks, his ring, and a “666” tattoo. Many episodes show the Roosevelt Hotel. The Roosevelt Hotel is one of Los Angeles’ most visited hotels. Several famous ghosts are movie stars: Montgomery Clift, Carole Lombard, Marilyn Monroe, and Rudolph Valentino.
- Each of the three Aimees were born within a 12-day span of the other two: Lauren German and Tom Ellis. They were also November babies, but that is not all.
- Tom Ellis never actually takes a pull on a cigarette, even though he is frequently photographed with a lit cigarette. Lucifer succumbing to nicotine cravings or addiction doesn’t make much sense. In the eyes of the Prince of Darkness, this is a vulnerability that should not be taken into consideration.
- Before the first episode of Lucifer aired, a member of the conservative group One Million Moms petitioned for the show to be canceled. There was a petition circulated against the concert, with 11,000 people signing it, since the signers believed it would glorify Satan.
- Coincidences abound on and off stage in this production, from the set to the backstage crew. Ellis claimed on The Rich Eisen Show that he plays the Lord of Hell since his father, sister, and uncle are all pastors. Right, it’s mysteriously fascinating.
