Fans call for 'Lucifer' and 'Outlander' crossover, thanks to social media banter between the leads
A small tease between Sam Heughan and Tom Ellis erupted in fans asking for a crossover where Heughan can play Archangel Michael in Lucifer and Tom Ellis can guest star in 'Outlander' season 5 which is currently in production
It all started with a simple friendly tweet, with friends teasing and trolling each other, but now it's risen to petition worthy news that 'Outlander' and 'Lucifer' need an epic crossover.
Earlier this month, Sam Heughan, who stars as Jamie Fraser in Starz's hit time-traveling drama, 'Outlander,' congratulated his friend, Tom Ellis, on the new promo teaser for Netflix show, 'Lucifer,' and teased; "Think I’ve seen too much already… Haha! Yazzzz buddy!!!" In the teaser, Ellis is seen stripping out of a dressing gown.
Ellis too cheekily responded; "Just trying to keep up with you my friend" and Heughan quipped; "Haha must get myself a gown like yours! Or get on Netflix….. congrats buddy!"
Just trying to keep up with you my friend 👌😉 https://t.co/0OhYpQbRWl— tom ellis (@tomellis17) April 5, 2019
Just when fans had started toying with the idea of 'Lucifer' and 'Outlander' crossover, calling it 'Lucinder,' a fan tagging 'Outlander author, Diana Gabaldon, wrote; "Jesus H Roosevelt Christ. Jamie and Lucifer are chatting! Wonder what @Writer_DG we could do with that in a book!"
Then off went Twitter fans as they started brainstorming about the possibilities.
A Twitter user said; "Just an idea, Sam could definitely play another brother (following on from the whole ‘they look nothing alike and have different accents)."
"I want Sam and Tom to be in a show together, I love them both, it would be awesome," said another user while another specifically mention that "maybe a guest appearance in the near future? Maybe on #LuciferSeason5?"
Another immediately added; "It is the best thing ever and I swear if he and @tomellis17 don’t work together on something soon, I will riot."

Then one fan chimed in saying that they should start a petition to get Sam Heughan on 'Lucifer' or vice-versa. Hashtag 'Lucinder' was used by fans to suggest an unthinkable crossover. While one is a time-traveling love drama, 'Lucifer' is an urban fantasy based on the DC Comics character created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth, and Mike Dringenberg. But fear not, a Twitter user suggested a crossover idea, "I would love to see Sam on Lucifer!! Archangel Michael?? ‘Lucilander would be my dream come true."
This is not the first time fans have been teased with the idea of 'Lucifer' and 'Outlander' crossover.
When one Twitter fan suggested they should be on screen together, Lucifer co-showrunner Joe Henderson replied; "Since @Ildymojo [co-showrunner Ildy Modrovich] and I are HUGE Outlander fans, believe me, if we ever get the opportunity we will."
Heughan teased that idea too and said; "Haha I don’t need convincing, Tom’s the BEST! (And I owe him a beer)."
In the 'Lucifer' season 4 promo video, a potential love triangle between Lucifer, Eve and Chloe Decker is teased. 'Outlander' is currently filming season 5 and the first look was recently out.
