The news keeps getting better for LuciFans! Towards the end of last year, we heard Fox ordered a full season of the hit comedy/crime drama/romance. Now Fox has announced that our favorite sassy devil will be returning for a complete, 22 episode third season.
“Lucifer is one of those rare shows that starts strong out of the gate, and just keeps getting better and better,” said David Madden, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “Tom (Lucifer), Lauren (Chloe) and the entire cast have really made these characters three-dimensional, and the production team – Jerry, Len, Jonathan, Joe and Ildy – is one of the best in the business. We’d also like to thank our partners Warner Bros. for their commitment to this show and we look forward to seeing where this wildly innovative series takes us in Season Three.”
The series will return for its spring premiere on Monday, May 1. In the episode called,“Candy Morningstar,” airing at 9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT on FOX, Lucifer (Tom Ellis) has gone off the grid and cut off all contact with his family and the police department, following Chloe’s (Lauren German) near-death from poison. Realizing he was willing to die for Chloe yet struggling with the idea that the relationship was manipulated by his father, Lucifer has some serious soul searching to do. But the murder of an up-and-coming guitarist causes him to resurface – with a new mystery woman in tow (could this be his sister Death? Fans of the graphic novels have been waiting to see if Lucifer’s sister would make an appearance!). Meanwhile, Lucifer’s mom (Tricia Helfer) realizes she may have found a way to finally get the whole family back to Heaven.
Remember to tune in on Monday, May 1, to see what Fox’s most unlikely team of heroes will surprise us with!
