The Fox Broadcasting Company (or just FOX), is an American broadcast television network. It was founded on October 9, 1986, by Rupert Murdoch and Barry Diller in New York City. The first three seasons of Lucifer ran on FOX from January 25, 2016, till May 11, 2018, canceling it on a "ratings-based decision".

Hosting Lucifer Edit

In September 2014, it was reported that DC and Fox were developing a television series based on the Sandman character Lucifer, as originally written by Neil Gaiman. The series is a "loose adaptation" of the original comic-book.

In May 2015, the series was officially picked up for 13 episodes for the 2015–16 season. Fox then hired Almost Human alum Joe Henderson as showrunner, with Tom Kapinos remaining on the series in a lesser capacity.

In April 2016, Fox renewed the series for a second season, which premiered on September 19, 2016. On October 31, 2016, the series received a 22-episode full second season pickup by Fox.

On February 13, 2017, Fox renewed the series for a third season initially of 22 episodes, which premiered on October 2, 2017. However, in March 2017, it was revealed that the final four episodes of the second season would be removed and placed in the third season to air, meaning that the second season would consist of 18 episodes and the third season would consist of 26.

On January 22, 2018, writer Chris Rafferty indicated that the third season would instead contain 24 episodes.

On May 11, 2018, Fox canceled the series after three seasons, stating it was a "ratings-based decision". Before the series' cancellation, co-showrunner, Ildy Modrovich, stated that the final two episodes produced would be moved to a potential fourth season. Instead, Fox broadcast both episodes on May 28, 2018, as a singular two-hour bonus episode.

On June 15, 2018, the series was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season with 10 episodes.
