Series info, plot and controversy

A fantasy police procedural with the title character hailing from Neil Gaiman, Sam Kleth and Mike Dringenberg, Lucifer, is already gaining popularity. The series` opponents have started a petition to boycott the series due to the fact that it portrays Satan as a relatable, likable human, and over 134,000 people have signed it already. Neil Gaiman, however, reminded everyone of The Sandman comic book that he`s authored, which has been boycotted in a similar manner for containing LGBT characters, and how the boycott didn`t work.

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.

Ratings, reviews and renewal potential

Lucifer premiered to 7.16 million viewers, a 2.4 share in the 18-49 demo and a 7% share of the audience, dropping to 5.47 million, 1.7 rating in 18-49 demo and a share of 5% by the third episode. The critical reception has been mixed, with many noting that the potentially entertaining idea of inserting Lucifer into the everyday reality was very much weakened by the police procedural format. The series` scores on review aggregator websites are equally mixed – strong 8.7/10 on IMDb and 8.2/10 on TV.com, and merely 49% on Rotten Tomatoes. It is hard to say which way the network decision will go at this point, but we will be sure to inform you as soon as relevant news become available.

Season 1 recap

A 13-part debut installment of Lucifer bowed out in the US on Monday, April 25, 2016 and although the final episode hasn’t managed to top the ratings of the pilot, the first season still delivered an impressive average viewership of almost 5 million fans per episode. The new series has already scored an award nomination this year and with an impressive 8.4 rating on IMDb it came as no surprise when an early renewal was announced on April 7, 2016. As expected with any TV series that has been greenlit for another round, the season ended with a major twist and now millions of fans are wondering who will be playing Lucifer’s mother when a new installment hits the small screen.
