Netflix finally released season 4 of Lucifer today. There have been many expectations from the new management since the day they saved Lucifer after Fox axed them. Lucifans were certainly excited due to the teasers that Lucifer’s show runners kept dropping. Now that it is finally here, we started binge watching it. And we just have one pressing thought we need to discuss at the moment.
It seems like the cast really struggled in the beginning while shooting for the season 4 pilot and the following episode. We are not criticizing, but something seems really off.

Really Trying To Pinpoint What Went Wrong
Personally, I am a huge fan of Lucifer. The interesting thing about the previous 3 seasons was that every cast member was fully invested in the role. However, the pilot episode of Lucifer Season 4 totally felt off the track. Not because the management or the cast were not experienced enough, but because the change of Lucifer’s guardianship from Fox to Netflix is too obvious.
Every cast member is apparently trying too hard to be on the show that it starts reflecting in their shaky acting skills. This definitely was not the case for the previous seasons of Lucifer. It does not seem like role playing; it’s just mostly dialogue delivery.
However, do not be sad my fellow Lucifans. It does not stay this way for long!
Let Netflix Do Its Magic
As we all know, Netflix has a thing for displaying nudity; the same is promised in Lucifer Season 4. After 2.25 episodes down, it is safe to say the series is PG-13 so far with hints of nudity.
The series does not stay boring for long. By the end of 2nd episode, a new twist is introduced. No, it is not Eve. There is no sign of Eve yet. However, this twist is as awkward as it is unpredictable. And it is exactly what kicks the leading cast members out of their misery and back to their own old self. Things are about to get very interesting.
Let’s see what the rest of the season brings.
Lucifer, a show created by Tom Kapinos, premiered in 2015. Originally, it was owned by the Fox channel but later got cancelled after 3 seasons. After finding a home with Netflix, we can see the return of favorite cast: Tom Ellis, Lauren German, Kevin, Alejandro, D.B. Woodside, Lesley Ann-Brandt, Scarlett Estavez, Rachel Harris, Tricia Helfer, Aimee Garcia, and Tom Welling.
