Despite Lucifer being on network television, it’s under the Vertigo wing of DC Entertainment. NBC’s Constantine adaptation in 2014-15 wasn’t as close to the source material as it could have been, as that was a mainline DC Entertainment series trying to make an unpleasant con artist sort of likable. iZombie deviates heavily from its source material, yet that show marries three formats – zombie outbreak drama, relationship drama, police procedural – that shouldn’t work together. Gloryosky hopes for an iZombie, and anticipates a Constantine.
On the plus side, Lucifer has the good luck to follow The X-Files’ revival series once The X-Files settles in its Monday timeslot, as The X-Files’ revival comes with a lot of hype. Lucifer comes with the standard “why is the devil a good guy?” baggage, which comes as no surprise to those who watched Golan the Insatiable.
