Fox has issued a third season renewal to drama “Lucifer,” with an order for 22 new episodes for 2017-18.
Debuting on Jan. 25, 2016, “Lucifer,” based on the characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for Vertigo, from DC Entertainment, is described as a devilishly fun series about the original fallen angel who moves to Los Angeles and teams up with the LAPD to take down criminals. Tom Ellis, Lauren German, Rachael Harris, DB Woodside, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Kevin Alejandro, Aimee Garcia, Tricia Helfer and Scarlett Estevez star.
Currently on hiatus, “Lucifer,” produced by Warner Bros. Television, in association with Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Aggressive Mediocrity, will return on Monday, May 1 at 9 p.m. ET. The logline: In an episode titled “Candy Morningstar,” Lucifer (Tom Ellis) has gone off the grid and cut off all contact from his family and the police department, following Chloe’s (Lauren German) near-death. But the murder of an up-and-coming guitarist causes him to resurface – with a new mystery woman. Meanwhile, Lucifer’s mom (Tricia Helfer) realizes she may have found a way to finally get them back to Heaven.
