‘Lucifer’ TV Series Spoilers: Show Deviates From Neil Gaiman’s ‘The Sandman’ Comic [WATCH TRAILER]

After the release of “Lucifer’s” trailer online, we have realized that the show is not just about procedural supernatural stuff but is campy, witty, hilarious and has a killer soundtrack. Read on for more details.

Fox’s “Lucifer” has not even started yet, but the upcoming series is the new talk of the fans. According to HitFlix,  the show is based on on character of the same name from “The Sandman” comic book by Neil Gaiman. It was also based on a spin-off called “Lucifer,” that was written by Mike Carey.


The outlet also reported on the synopsis of the storyline from the comic book where the series was based on. In Carey’s comic book series, Lucifer left hell out of boredom. Then, he “comes up from the hell in Los Angeles and opens a piano bar and plans to start a restful retirement. But things are not that simple for Lucifer himself as he has to fight with an Archangel who is trying to get him to go back to his place in Hell. The character penned by Carey was selfish, and never lies but always tells the exact literal truth.”

The “Lucifer” TV series is lead  a Welsh actor Tom Ellis who deals with the same elements. In the TV series, “Lucifer” works with the Los Angeles Police Department to get the criminals. The series will focus on his life in L.A. and not in the other places he went to in the comic book.

Hitflix also noted that Ellis’ portrayal as the charming “Lucifer” is considered similar to John Milton’s “Paradise Lost.”

At “Lucifer” Comic-Con panel event, the show creator and executive producer shed few insights about the upcoming show:

According to Joe Henderson, the showrunner-executive producer of the show described that the comic was absolutely amazing. He also said that the entire crew is trying very hard to take the idea behind the idea and blend it into this world. At the very same time, the show will not have too much of supernatural elements as the show is about a person learning about humanity on Earth, freedom from his father, and no one is going to stop him for doing the things which he like.

“Lucifer” was officially picked up on May 9, 2015, for the 2015-2016 season but now is rescheduled to premiere in 2016.
