Season Finale Monday, April 25 at 9 PM ET/PT on FOX
Based upon the characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for DC Entertainment’s Vertigo imprint, LUCIFER takes everything we think we know about the world’s greatest villain and flips it upside down. Bored and unhappy in Hell, LUCIFER MORNINGSTAR (Tom Ellis, “Rush”) abandons his throne and heads to the city of Angels looking for a heck of a good time.
Lucifer is devilishly handsome and charismatic, and he has a talent for drawing out people’s darkest secrets. When the brutal murder of an acquaintance of his attracts the attention of LAPD homicide detective CHLOE DECKER (Lauren German, “Chicago Fire”), he is hell-bent on helping her find the perpetrators, and discovers a passion for punishing the guility here on earth. Initially, Chloe is dismissive of Lucifer, but when she sees him in action, she becomes intrigued. But Chloe’s soon-to-be ex-husband and colleague on the police force, DAN (Kevin Alejandro, “True Blood”), is wary of Lucifer’s intentions, especially when their young daughter, TRIXIE (Scarlett Estevez, “And Then There Was You”), takes a liking to him.
As Lucifer’s interest in Chloe’s cases grows, so does his curiosity about her. Of all the people he’s encountered, she’s the only one who isn’t affected by his devilish ways. And while working with her, for the first time in roughly 10 billion years, he feels something awaken deep within him. Compassion? Sympathy? The very thought disturbs him – enough to seek out the guidance of a therapist, LINDA (Rachael Harris, “The Hangover”). In the season finale, titled “Take Me Back to Hell,” Lucifer is framed by someone.
FOX has renewed LUCIFER for a second season, it was announced by David Madden, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “We knew we had something special with LUCIFER, from the engaging performances of Tom, Lauren and the rest of the charismatic cast, to Len Wiseman’s visually stunning look of the show and the amazing storytelling savvy of the Bruckheimer team,” said Madden.
