The Lucifer Season 4 Plot:
“On May 8, 2019, all hell breaks loose (again!) when Netflix premieres Season 4 of Lucifer, the cult-favorite, fantasy comedy-drama about fallen angel and ex-Lord of Hell, Lucifer Morningstar, a Los Angeles nightclub owner who expertly deploys his devil-may-care attitude while moonlighting as an LAPD consultant.
Reeling from the aftermath of Chloe seeing his devil face, Lucifer faces a new challenge: Eve, the original sinner herself, is back. Does she want revenge for when he tempted her out of Eden oh so many years ago… or something else entirely?”
