Season four of Lucifer  was released globally on Netflix on May 8 with all 10 episodes from the run simultaneously dropped for voracious fans. However, there are also many people coming to the show new due to the interest generated by the huge #SaveLucifer campaign last year. The successful campaign, which saw lead star Tom Ellis appearing on BBC’s Newsnight to champion the series, brought new interest to the series.

Do you need to watch Lucifer season 1, 2, 3 before season 4 on Netflix?

For those new to Lucifer, the short answer is probably not. The show has a story-of-the-week formula that sees murder cases cracked with some supernatural shenanigans on the side.

Netflix handily released video recap for seasons one to three which detailed all the major events in the previous runs to get audiences up to speed.

The video sees Lucifer Morningstar (played by Tom Ellis) taking centre-stage in an empty room as he directly addresses the camera.

Lucifer introduces himself as the devil, saying he went to Earth for a vacation from Hell with LA serving as the perfect hotbed of sin he was looking for.

The video goes on to introduce Lucifer’s brother Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside), who informs him God has requested his return to Hell which he refuses to do.


“I bought a bar and went on to have a wonderful time with my demon friend Maze, annoying my brother Amenadiel which was half the fun,” Lucifer explains.

Lucifer’s decadent life in LA takes a turn when he gets caught up in a murder near his nightclub Lux and assists homicide detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German) to solve it.

“I told her I was the devil but she didn’t believe me, they never do,” Lucifer quips.

He goes on to speak about his feelings for Chloe and admits she’s immune to his charms which makes her even more appealing.

Lucifer reveals he’s seeking counselling from therapist Dr Linda Martin (Rachael Harris) and with her help manages to keep working with the detective despite his attraction to her.


We are also introduced to the other members of Chloe’s team: fellow LAPD detective and Chloe’s ex-husband Dan Espinoza (Kevin Alejandro) and forensic scientist Ella Lopez (Aimee Garcia).

“The past couple of years we’ve been through a lot,” Lucifer says as we meet Goddess (Tricia Helfer), who is also mother to Lucifer and put into the body of recently deceased attorney Charlotte Richards.

Meanwhile, over the seasons, demon Mazikeen/Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) became a bounty hunter after tiring of her luxurious life and Amenadiel loses his wings before getting them back and flying Goddess/Charlotte back to heaven when she sacrifices herself to save him.


As the recap comes to an end, Lucifer confesses Chloe “nearly” realises she was madly in love with Lucifer but said it all went pear-shaped when she saw his true “devil face”.

Audiences get a montage of action shots which promises season four will be a rollercoaster ride.

“So, grab a drink, you’ll need one. There’s no hiding,” Lucifer says as he walks off.

A short synopsis for Lucifer season four reads: “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?”
