Lucifer is one of Fox’s most consistent performers in an often difficult Monday night time slot. In fact, the show holds its’ own after Gotham, its’ highly rated lead in. On February 13th, Fox announced the witty, supernatural crime series was renewed for a third season.
Lucifer follows the King of Hell (Tom Ellis) as he teams up with Lieutenant Chloe Decker (Lauren German). Together they solve a crime of the week, while negotiating their growing feelings for each other. This season, the show’s universe grew with the arrival of Lucifer’s mother (Tricia Helfer) as well as an increasing number of angels.
According to the network, the series has averaged 8 million viewers throughout its’ second season. Dave Madden, the Fox President of Entertainment said, “Lucifer is one of those rare series that starts strong out of the gate, and just keeps getting better and better….We look forward to where this innovative show takes us in season three”.
In Lucifer’s winter finale, his growing closeness with Chloe is stalled when she is poisoned and becomes seriously ill. Rattled not only by the case, but also his mother’s claim that Chloe is not human, Lucifer runs away.
Lucifer is currently in the middle of its’ winter break. Season two returns on Monday May 1st with the episode “Candy Morningstar”.
