The Tom Ellis-fronted drama topped our Cancellation Countdown poll, with TVLine readers naming it the “bubble” show they most hoped to see renewed this month. Lucifer wound up with 8.05 percent of all votes, edging out Timeless’ 7.81 percent. (All told, nearly 350,000 ballots were cast.)
Averaging a 0.8 demo rating and 3.3 million total weekly viewers through its April 30 outing (per Live+Same Day numbers), Lucifer ranks 10th and eighth among all Fox dramas this TV season, and is down 20 percent in the demo from its sophomore season.
Lucifer airs Mondays at 8/7c on Fox, with its series finale set for May 14. Fox will hold its annual Upfront Presentation to advertisers, where its complete 2018-19 schedule and new programming announcements are revealed, on Monday, May 14 in New York.
Ellis himself broke the news of Lucifer‘s cancellation on Twitter:
It has been the most amazing experience over the past 3 years playing Lucifer and falling in love with you, the fans. It fills me with great sadness to confirm the rumours that some of you have been asking. Fox has indeed cancelled #lucifer I’m so sorry guys. #gutted
