Lucifer is a TV show based on a comic book series of the same name, which was published by DC Comics. In the series, Lucifer, a fallen angel, decides to go to Los Angeles and have some fun instead of ruling in hell. 

Not available in your country?

Watch Lucifer now on Netflix

Status checked 2024/02/20:

He doesn’t hide the fact that he is actually the devil, in fact, quite the opposite: He brags of it and tries to convince everyone, but no one believes him. During the Lucifer series, he meets a detective of the Los Angeles Police Department, Chloe Decker, and starts helping her solve murder cases.

Lucifer was originally picked up by FOX, airing in 2016, but was canceled in 2018 after three seasons. However, then Netflix decided to give Lucifer a chance. A month after the cancellation announcement, Netflix picked up the show and renewed it for a fourth season.

How to Watch Lucifer Online

If you want to watch Lucifer online, you’ve got plenty of options. One of them is Netflix, one of the biggest streaming services on the internet with more than 148 million users and thousands of shows and movies worldwide. 

All in all, Netflix is a solid service, but the quality and selection of its offering depend on the country you are in. This is because Netflix only has streaming rights to some titles in certain countries.

Even though Lucifer became a Netflix TV show, it still isn’t available in every country in the world. That’s because Lucifer has become a Netflix Originals series from the fourth season onward. This means that the fourth season is only available on Netflix. 

Here’s the catch: Just because Netflix owns the streaming rights for the fourth season, that doesn’t necessarily mean it also owns the streaming rights to the previous series in every country. While Lucifer is easily accessible via Netflix in the U.S. and Canada, things are different in Europe.


For example, in Germany you can’t watch Lucifer at all, while in Romania and Bulgaria, Netflix has all four seasons. In the U.K, on the other hand, you can only watch the fourth season because other companies own the media rights for seasons one through three.

No worries, though, as there are VPNs and other ways that allow you to enjoy Netflix and all that it offers. You can check out our suggestions for the best VPN for Netflix, as well as our article about how to beat the Netflix VPN ban

If you really want to watch Lucifer, but don’t feel like using Netflix, give Hulu a try. The first month is free, but after that, you will have to subscribe to one of their three packages. 

Hulu doesn’t seem to be affected too much by the dispute on media rights and has the first three seasons of Lucifer. Unfortunately, though, you can’t watch Hulu outside of the U.S. For that reason, you might want to look into our best VPN for Hulu.

In the end, if you really want to enjoy all four seasons of Lucifer, you should get yourself a Netflix account and a decent VPN, which should do the trick.

How to Watch Lucifer Online for Free

Before you start looking for free options to watch Lucifer online, you should first check if online streaming is legal in the country you’re living in. In some countries, streaming isn’t a big deal and you can watch Lucifer online for free, but some countries might have strict laws against it. In any case, just to play it safe, you should check our best VPN for streaming suggestions.


The internet lets you watch many things for free. Lucifer is one of them. You can watch the devil on several different streaming sites, like PutLocker and Couchsurfer. However, the price you pay for streaming Lucifer is a different one: your laptop’s security. 

Both Couchsurfer and PutLocker give you free access to Lucifer and many other series and movies, but they’re also loaded with viruses and malicious pop-ups, which might get your device infected. 

Make sure you are using one of the best pop-up blockers and antivirus software. Even visiting the site might be dangerous without the right protection.

How to Watch Lucifer on Kodi

Another way of watching Lucifer for free is by using Kodi, a multi-platform home theater application, which was initially developed by Xbox back in 2004.

You can download and install Kodi on almost every device, including Linux, Windows, iOS and Android (learn more about how to use Kodi in our guide). Downloading and installing Kodi itself is totally legal and one of the best free options to organize your movies and series. 

Staying on the legal side, however, depends on the way you use Kodi, because not everything you do on Kodi is legal. Add-ons, for example, aren’t legal by default. 

If you don’t want the police knocking on your door (Lucifer won’t be there with them), you might want to check if the add-ons are legal or not before you decide to download them. 


We found all four seasons of Lucifer in the Poseidon add-on. You can get this add-on by installing the Kodil repository. Just make sure you’re using the right installation link, because these change weekly. 

Another thing you should really think about is using a VPN to avoid trouble. If you want to be on the safe side, you should check out our best VPN for Kodi guide.

Lucifer Torrents

Last but not least, let’s talk about torrents. Torrents are a powerful — but maybe not the most legal — way to watch Lucifer online for free. You can find the series on a couple of torrent sites, such as Knaben, The Pirate Bay and LimeTorrents.

Every torrent offers different file sizes and lets you choose between them. You can download single episodes or entire seasons; it’s up to you. 


Using torrents is illegal, and we advise anyone with a few bucks in their pocket against it. Either switch directly to Netflix or use a VPN for torrenting. If you really feel like torrenting, you should definitely check out our NordVPN review, as this is one of the best VPNs for torrenting.

Final Thoughts

You might have heard the proverb, “Better the devil you know than the devil you don’t know.“ Well, in this case, that’s definitely not true. If you haven’t watched Lucifer, give it a try. It’s a great show and available all over the internet.
