American singer, songwriter and actress Kelly Clarkson turns out to be a major Lucifer fan. After hearing that season five would be the last, Clarkson took to social media to campaign for the show to be uncancelled. Here’s everything you need to know about Clarkson’s intervention.
Could Netflix reverse cancellation amid Kelly Clarkson plea?
Kelly Clarkson took to Instagram earlier this week to share her love for Lucifer, and also her disappointment that the series was being cancelled.
In two separate videos, Clarkson pleaded for Netflix to un-cancel Lucifer.
She captioned the post “DearNetflix #SaveLucifer and shared the videos with her 4.2 million followers.
She said: “OK, I’m upset, because it took me forever to catch on to this show because I have four children and a lot of jobs and a lot going on.
“But I cannot believe — my sister was like, ‘You need to watch this show, you’re going to love this show.’
“And I kept trying, and every time I did there was a kid, there was something that was happening. So I never got to, and then I finally started watching it and I obsessively watched three seasons in like four days.
“My husband is so over it, probably. But I love it. The show is called Lucifer and I’m so mad because I know Netflix just picked it up but I just found out [it’s cancelled after Season 5].”
“Here’s what I need, Netflix, what do we need to do to make sure there’s more seasons than just Season five?
“Because, here’s what happens. I get on a show late in the game, and it’s amazing, and then people end up going, ‘Oh, it’s over, and it’s cancelled,’ and I’m like, ‘Why?’ and I’m mad about it.
“Anyway, if you haven’t watched Lucifer you should watch it, it’s awesome. The end of Season 4? Let’s talk about it. It’s so good and sad.
She added: “I’m obsessed, it’s fun. … Netflix, how ‘bout y’all go ahead and re-up that? And you just do me a solid and continue this greatness.”
Clarkson then said she wanted all of the cast of Lucifer on her talk show, The Kelly Clarkson show.
She even gave a special shout out to Aimee Garcia who plays Ella Lopez in Lucifer.
Garcia responded to Clarkson’s plea with her own video.
She captioned the plot: “So THIS happened today. I’m crying! @kellyclarkson MADE. MY. YEAR. “
In the video, she said: “Ok so I just had a major fan girl moment. Kelly Clarkson sent me a video saying that she is obsessed with Lucifer and loves our show and it just made my year.”
In a separate tweet, she called Clarkson the “newest member” of the Lucifer family.
The videos were shared widely across social media with Lucifer fans rallying to support Clarkson’s claims.
One fan commented: “Yes save Lucifer, it’s a good show. Needs to come back.”
Another fan said: “I completely agree. It is my JAM. #lucifer.”
A third fan said: “We love Lucifer I agree season needed.”
D.B Woodside who plays Amendiel recently revealed that he and the rest of the cast thought there would be six seasons of Lucifer.
Previously speaking at Comic-Con in Australia, he revealed to audiences: “I think we [the cast] felt like it was six seasons.”
However, it seems very unlikely that Lucifer will be given a sixth season.
Filming for the fifth and final season has already begun, so how Lucifer will end has probably already been decided.
In a statement earlier this year, Netflix confirmed the return of Lucifer for one last run: “We’re thrilled that Lucifer fans around the world have embraced this series on Netflix, and we can’t wait to give them the big finish they’ve all been waiting for.”
While the showrunners added: “We are so incredibly thankful to Netflix for resurrecting our show last season, and now letting us finish the story of Lucifer on our terms.
“Most importantly, we want to thank the fans for their incredible passion and support. The best is yet to come!!”
