Top 5 Great Shows That Were Save by Streaming

4. Lucifer

There was a weird period during the 2010s where TV networks tried to one-up each other when it came to crime dramas. The battle was over how gimmicky can you make a crime show. As a result, we were given shows like Sleepy Hollow, where the headless horseman helps solve crimes. IZombie, where a zombie helps solves crimes. And of course FOX’s Lucifer, based on a comic book, Lucifer came to earth from hell and ends up helping the local police force with solving crimes.

The show was successful and gather a strong following, however, Fox still canceled the show after two years. I remember the online petitions that were started to bring the show back. However, by that point streaming networks had already brought back multiple shows. So fans knew that it was only a matter of time before Lucifer would be revived, which it was, by Netflix.
