Lucifer Morningstar and company are officially heading to basic cable for the first time in the states!

Beginning on Wednesday, May 4, 2022, Lucifer fans will be able to enjoy encores of the show’s first three seasons on TNT — marking the first time the episodes will be available to view on basic cable.

The action will begin on May 4 when TNT airs a four-hour Lucifer programming block as part of a supernatural drama block that also includes reruns of Supernatural and the OG Charmed. To kick off the celebration, TNT will show the first four episodes of season 1 beginning with the Pilot episode airing at 3/2c.

TNT will then air Lucifer encores every Wednesday afternoon beginning at 3/2c, giving fans without Netflix accounts the chance to rewatch the series from the beginning via the weekly encores.

Is Lucifer leaving Netflix?

To be blunt, no Lucifer is not leaving Netflix and there are no indications that the series will be leaving the streaming service anytime soon.

While Lucifans will be able to enjoy encores of seasons 1-3 on TNT beginning on May 4, 2022, the three seasons will remain on Netflix alongside the show’s final three seasons which Netflix greenlit and helped produce.

In fact, the show’s first three seasons are finally coming to Netflix UK/IE on May 29, 2022, after Netflix managed to finally secure the international streaming rights to the series! (Seasons 1-3 previously aired on Amazon in the UK.)

There is always a chance Warner Bros could try to find a way to steal Lucifer away from Netflix in order to move the show to HBO Max in the future, but there have been no such conversations at this time and it’s not a move we anticipate happening anytime in the near (or distant) future!
