I’m heartbroken, shocked and devastated over the news that our beloved show has been cancelled. All I can say is we love YOU for watching, supporting and loving #Lucifer for these past few seasons. Funny that a show about the devil has been nothing short of heaven. ❤️😈😢— Ildy Modrovich (@Ildymojo) 11 mai 2018
