Series information and plot

A fantasy police procedural with the title character hailing from Neil Gaiman, Sam Kleth and Mike Dringenberg, Lucifer is a popular series airing on Fox since 2016. It was developed by Tom Kapinos and is executive produced by Ildy Modrovich, Len Wiseman, Jonathan Littman, Jerry Bruckheimer and Joe Henderson. Jerry Bruckheimer Television, Vertigo and Warner Bros. Television are behind the production. The sophomore season debuted on September 19, 2016.

The television series does indeed feature Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis), who is extremely bored in hell, resigns and decides to move to LA and join the LA police department. Due to his ability to see through to the person`s motives, he can make the criminals confess. Chloe Decked (Lauren German) is a homicide detective and Lucifer`s colleague and love interest. Season 1 ended with a major twist connected to Lucifer’s mother, and the second season picked up where the freshman chapter left off, with Lucifer’s mother, Charlotte in this particular incarnation (Tricia Heller), showing up at his doorstep at the end of season 2 premiere episode and becoming an integral part of the plot.

Ratings, reviews and renewal potential

The first season of Lucifer premiered to 7.16 million viewers, and was among Fox`s top performing new series with a 10.5 million total viewers across different platforms. It was predictably renewed for a sophomore run. Season 2 debuted with more modest, but still very solid viewership of 4.36 million fans tuning in. The critical reception has been mixed, with many noting that the potentially entertaining idea of inserting Lucifer into the everyday reality was significantly weakened by the police procedural format. However, the second season has been garnering more praise from both critics and viewers than the preceding installment, and it seems that Lucifer is beginning to blossom into an even stronger performer. While there are logical gaps in the script, viewers are definitely enjoying the mix of campy, flashy fun and unique mythology built by Lucifer creators. The series` scores on review aggregator websites are mixed – a strong 8.3/10 IMDb score and a mere 49% on Rotten Tomatoes.

During season 1 the series` opponents launched a petition to boycott the series due to its portrayal of Satan as a relatable, likable human. Neil Gaiman, however, reminded everyone of The Sandman comic book, which was also boycotted to no avail. Fans were certainly glad to learn that the series’ creators did not flinch under pressure, and produced a second season. Hopefully, there will be much more to come, so please stay tuned and we’ll deliver the most current news to you.

Latest news

UPDATED November 30, 2016: On November 28, 2016 the midseason finale of Lucifer aired with solid numbers, up significantly from the previous week`s 3.63 million to 4.4 million viewers, a demo rating of 1.2 and a share of 4. Charlotte is set on ousting Lucifer from earth and getting him back to Heaven, and she uses Chloe, who has become special to him. Her plan to kill Chloe with a car bomb is reversed when Amenadiel convinces her that Chloe`s death will only lead to Lucifer investigating it rather than leaving Earth. She resorts to other methods, but nothing works. There are two cliffhangers we`re left with, one is Lucifer`s long overdue date with Chloe and – possibly – a kiss. The second cliffhanger is of a much grander scale, and occurs when Amenadiel realizes that Chloe`s very existence is the result of divine interference, of which he was inadvertently a part. The second part of Lucifer`s season 2 will air on January 16, 2017, so sign up for our automatic reminders and don`t miss the midseason return of the fantasy procedural, where Charlotte`s plans are intensified, and we will perhaps begin to figure out what Charlotte meant by saying that Chloe was their key to returning home.
