Lucifer will not only take its final bow this year, but things will become what they’ve never been:
As showrunners teased in the trailer, just when Luci finally becomes the one and only God this year, life throws a slack-jawed curveball.
Lucifer As A Cartoon – And You Thought His Wings Were Weird!
Courtesy of the team behind the award-winning Harley Quinn animated series, everybody’s favorite devil (Tom Ellis) will become a cartoon. And, as always, he won’t be alone, as Detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German) will be riding shotgun on this adventure. The details are being withheld, but what is known is the episode title is “Yabba-Dabba-Do-Me.” Showrunner Joe Henderson, does note, however, that the means by which this happens “is organic to our show, similar to what [Ildy Modrovich, co-showrunner] had to find in her musical episode. How do you earn it within the show? How do you earn it within the language of the show? That was important.”
Henderson admits that this provocative installment has been on his wish list, yet wasn’t sure if it would ever come to pass. “I just didn’t think I’d actually get to, because it’s just such an undertaking. But it was COVID and we were looking for ways to have fewer days on set. And so the problem became the opportunity, because I secretly had been wanting to do it for years.”
Joe is nothing but complimentary of Harley Supervising Producer Jennifer Coyle and her animation team and their ability to convey “humanity” in their series. As to what Luci and Chloe experience, Ildy noted “[We] were sort of talking about doing a Hanna-Barbera style, and then they actually worked a bunch of Looney Tunes influence in there as [well.] I mean, we gave them our instinct and they just flew. They’re amazing. Like they’re just incredible to work with. I mean, we had the starting point, but they brought it to life.”
