The Lucifer series was the most streamed series in 2021. Following this announcement, Neil Gaiman, the author of the Lucifer series, took a shot at those who had vowed to boycott the show. Let’s learn more about it in this article.
The American Family Association launched a website called One Million Moms prior to the debut of the Lucifer series. The page requested that people boycott the Lucifer series. They boycotted it because they claimed the series was anti-Christian and made light of the Holy Bible. They further asserted that in this new series, Satan would be portrayed as a loving person in the shape of a human. This will attempt to modify people’s perceptions about Satan. Neil Gaiman issued a comment on the announcement that the Lucifer series was the most-streamed TV series in 2021. He expressed his delight at the series being the most streamed series of the year. He also thanked the One Million Moms organisation for attempting to boycott the series. He also suggested that the boycott of The Sandman was an indication that the spin-off will do well. So, it seems that the boycott did not proceed as planned.
The Lucifer series earned the greatest stream time of the year, clocking in at over 18.3 billion minutes. The series is based on characters from DC Comics. Neil Gaiman, Sam Keith, and Mike Dringenberg conceived the series. The series has six seasons in all. The Lucifer series’ first season began on January 25, 2016. The first two seasons of the series aired on Fox. People later began boycotting the programme. As a result, the series was cancelled after the third season. However, Fox said that the programme was withdrawn because it was not garnering high ratings. Later that year, it was revealed that the next season of the Lucifer series will be available on Netflix. The programme received positive feedback and topped the streaming rankings this year.
The Lucifer series consists of 93 episodes, each of which lasts 45-60 minutes. The series’ storyline centres on Lucifer Morningstar. He is the Lord of Hell, and he subsequently works as a city consultant for the Los Angeles Police Department. The plot revolves on Lucifer’s approach to interacting with people and utilising his skills to solve crimes. Tom Ellis, Lauren German, Kevin Alejandro, D. B. Woodside, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Scarlett Estevez, Rachael Harris, Kevin Rankin, Tricia Helfer, Aimee Garcia, Tom Welling, Inbar Lavi, and Brianna Hildebrand star in the series. Tom Kapinos created the programme, which is produced by Jerry Bruckheimer Television, DC Entertainment, and Warner Bros. Television.
This year will also see the premiere of Neil Gaiman’s new series The Sandman. The show will debut on Netflix. Gaiman confirmed that the first season’s filming is complete. The series will most likely be published this year. However, the series’ premiere date has yet to be officially revealed.
