Lucifer it has been one of the biggest Netflix revivals in the streamer’s history and currently resides in most regions of the world. His time on Netflix won’t be forever though, as we found out the show could be out as early as 2031.
Originally on FOX, Netflix eventually revived Lucifer for what was three big seasons (although it was originally supposed to be two) and now all six seasons reside on Netflix with key exceptions like Netflix Germany.
Developed by Tom Kapinos, the series starred Tom Ellis, Lauren German, Kevin Alejandro, and DB Woodside.
When Lucifer leave netflix?
Our investigation revealed that, at this time, Lucifer is scheduled to leave Netflix globally on September 10, 2031.
But why that date?
Well, superfans of the show will already know that this is the exact day that season 6 of Lucifer was added to Netflix in 2021. This tells us that Netflix retains the rights for the lifetime of the show plus another ten years.
It’s news to many that Netflix Originals may even be leaving the service, but as we’ve cataloged, dozens of titles have already left the service, all of which carried the Original branding.
Why Lucifer Might Leave Netflix
While not all Netflix Originals will eventually leave the service, many will because the underlying rights are owned by someone else and Netflix has essentially (albeit exclusively) leased them for a fixed period of time.
In this case, Warner Bros. Television owns the underlying rights, and of course, the intellectual property itself is owned by DC Comics, which is also owned by Warner Bros. Discovery.
Ten-year removals, from our research, are common for all Warner Bros. TV shows that Netflix has picked up over the years, where they will expire exactly 10 years after the final season is added to the service. This applies to titles like Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, The Kominsky method, The Sandman, either Keep breathing, to name a few.
Of course, we don’t know where Warner Bros. Discovery will be in the 2030s. As we’ve seen with lilyhammershows can be renewed, but since Warner Bros. Discovery may like Lucifer to reinforce its own HBO Max, it is not a given that a renewal will take place here.
We go into more detail about the Netflix Originals that may be leaving the service in the next decade, which include titles like orange is the new black, narcos, house of cards, ozark, Y 13 reasons why.
In other Lucifer news, you may be aware that some of the show’s cast and crew are also working on a plethora of Netflix projects.
