The fourth season of 'Lucifer' will concentrate on the Devil's fight between staying evil, or trying to change for the better. Lucifer Morningstar who gave up being the Lord of Hell, and ended up in Los Angeles because he is bored will meet Eve. He will see acceptance from her and understand who he really is, but all of it might come with a clause. In the meanwhile, he also struggles with detective Chloe Decker for not wanting to accept the dark side in him. So does he choose the one who accepts him or the one who wants to change him for the good? 

Season 3 recap:

In this recap from 'God's favorite angel' turned into a devil, we are told how he is the man who invented 'daddy issues, waged a war, and then got banished to rule hell'. The Lucifer we see? He is the banished angel on a 'vacay' because who doesn't need it after multiple failures? He comes to Los Angeles hoping to get a break from being a pawn in one of his 'daddy's games' and spends time with his devil friend Maze and angel brother Amenadiel. Only, his brother wants Lucifer to go back to hell. However, Luci then meets detective Chloe Decker, the only human who is immune to his devilish charms and takes interest in her, helps her solve cases, and when things don't go his way, Lucifer goes to a therapist to vent out his frustrations.
