Lucifer: Tom Ellis And Lauren German Talk The Possibility Of Reunion Film
After being cancelled and saved by fans, the show Lucifer was able to finally end the narrative its way.
The finale season, the conclusion to the show, became available to stream on September 10, this year. This is the last we follow these characters according to the crew. But if Lauren German (who plays Chloe Decker) has things her way, that may not end up being the case after all.
In an interview, German wonders what fun it would be to continue the story with a movie. “My fantasy is that we shoot a ‘Lucifer’ movie, but in the style of ‘Naked Gun’ and ‘Airplane!’ So if we could ask the fans if they are ok with a ‘Naked Gun’/’Airplane’-style ‘Lucifer’ movie (laughs),” German said. “But no, I mean, Tom says it so well, how do you say it, muffin? It’s the right time to say goodbye.”
“It does feel like the right time,” Ellis said. “Never say never, and all of those things, but this feels like, this incarnation of these characters in this show, this feels like this is the right time to finish. Will we ever reprise these roles again? I don’t know. I don’t know. But at least the movie sounds fun in the future!”
“That would be a riot!” German adds.
Talking about the ending (SPOILERS AHEAD), the two agree that it did the narrative justice.
“It is. It’s heartbreaking. And also, what had to be done,” German told TheWrap. “I think even as the audience looking on, if it wasn’t that way, it doesn’t make the very, very ending as gratifying, right? So to know that they both did the right thing, more or less, did the right thing for Rory. Chloe stayed and is a mom and Lucifer is gathering this new journey, this new purpose that he has. It’s heartbreaking. But as Tom says, it’s bittersweet and you do get the sweet, at the end. But I think it was super smart, I think it’s the way it should have gone.”
Ellis added: “We didn’t want to do an end to show where the audience have their cake and eat it and then had some more cake and then more cake after that. It just didn’t feel right. It feels like that’s not a true reflection of what this show has been or a true reflection of what we’re maybe trying to say at the end of it. And I think that to have that sacrifice made at the end, to understand that sacrifice, for Rory and Lucifer to truly understand why they didn’t spend their lives together, was the most important thing. Because once they understood that, they could accept it and then that made everything else fall into place.”
