If, like us, you’ve been mourning the end of Lucifer, we have some good news for you…
Nope, sadly there’s not going to be another season (as far as we’re aware), but there’s a plethora of similar series for you to get your teeth stuck into, to help you fill the Lucifer-shaped holes in your lives.
From Good Omens to The Vampire Diaries, here’s five shows to add to your watch list. Immediately.
5 Shows to Watch if You Like ‘Lucifer’ :
1. Good Omens
Good Omens on Amazon Prime Video is based on the 1990 novel of the same name by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.
Gaiman is the reason Lucifer Morningstar exists, creating the character for the DC comic book series The Sandman in 1989. Gaiman has since appeared in Lucifer, voicing the character of God in the earlier seasons.
Set in 2018, Good Omens follows demon Crowley (David Tennant) and angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen), who, like Lucifer (Tom Ellis), have grown accustomed to life on Earth.
iZombie delves into the world of the supernatural, with plenty of religious references.
Like Lucifer (which is adapted from DC’s The Sandman), iZombie is based on a popular comic book series created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred.
The show follows Liv (Rose McIver), a doctor-turned-zombie, who, similarly to our devil friend, helps solve murders in Los Angeles with Chloe (Lauren German).
Just like Lucifer, Supernatural explores the differences between Heaven and Hell, supernatural beings on Earth, and the conflict between all of the archangels.
Lucifer fans are no stranger to angel drama, especially after Season 5, which saw Lucifer and Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside) go to war with their siblings over God’s throne.
Supernatural also features a familiar face from the Lucifer world. Rob Benedict, who portrayed the evil Vincent Le Mec in Lucifer Season 5 and 6, also plays the role of Chuck Shurley/Carver Edlund/God in Supernatural from Season 4 to Season 15.
4. Crisis on Infinite Earths (Arrowverse)
Crisis on Infinite Earth is the name of the sixth annual Arrowverse crossover event between Batwoman, The Flash, Arrow, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow;four shows which are also worth watching in their own right, if you are a Lucifer fan.
The reason you will not want to miss Crisis on Infinite Earths is that Lucifer Morningstar himself makes an appearance in Part Three.
In the crossover event, Mia (Katherine McNamara) and Diggle (David Ramsey) arrived on Earth to ask Lucifer for help to get to Purgatory. In a bid to track down the devil, they visit Lucifer’s famous nightclub, Lux in Los Angeles.
5. The Vampire Diaries
Based on L.J. Smith’s book series of the same name, The Vampire Diaries follows the story of Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev), who falls in love with a 162-year-old vampire named Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley).
Through her romance she is introduced to the world of the supernatural, which means viewers get to enjoy plenty of vampires, villains, vampire hunters, werewolves, witches, hybrids, and ghosts.
Just like Lucifer, The Vampire Diaries features plenty of romance so, while you may be missing Lucifer and Chloe’s relationship, there are plenty of love triangles and juicy storylines to get behind in this show.
Since The Vampire Diaries concluded in 2017, there have been two spin-off series: The Originals and Legacies, which you may also want to check out.
