“Lucifer”
 Spring Premiere Monday, May 1 at 9 PM ET/PT on FOX

 
          The premiere episode, “Candy Morningstar,” guest stars Lindsey Gort. Tension arises between Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and Chloe (Lauren German), when after cutting off all contact from his family and the police department, Lucifer returns to help solve an up-and-coming guitarist's murder, and he has a new woman in his life. Also, Lucifer’s mom (Tricia Helfer) continues her quest to find a way to get them back to heaven.

            Based upon the characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for Vertigo, from DC Entertainment, “LUCIFER’ is the story of the original fallen angel. Bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, Lucifer Morningstar abandoned his throne and retired to Los Angeles, where he has teamed up with LAPD detective Chloe Decker to take down criminals.
 

          Charming, charismatic and devilishly handsome, Lucifer has a way of manipulating people into confessing their deepest, darkest secrets, which helps Chloe deliver justice. But Lucifer quickly discovered that Chloe makes him vulnerable. When he’s around her, the devil can bleed like anyone else. It’s a truly scary realization that doesn’t sit well with his best friend, Mazikeen aka Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt), a fierce demon in the form of a beautiful young woman. Maze wants nothing more than to leave Los Angeles and get back to her life in Hell, but Lucifer is having one helluva good time with the mortals, and she is not about to leave him behind.

          In Season Two, Lucifer and his brother, Amenadiel (DB Woodside), who have been sparring over Lucifer’s resistance to returning to the underworld, are now brought back together for one common goal – to find their mother, Charlotte, who escaped Hell. After all, Lucifer doesn’t take after his dad, so the parent he does resemble is sure to be quite terrifying. Lucifer’s work with the LAPD also is upended when the police force hires Ella Lopez (Aimee Garcia), a smart, tough forensic scientist whose mutual belief in both faith and science proves a point of interest to Lucifer.

          With mom on the loose, Dr. Linda Martin (Rachael Harris), who has become not only a therapist, but also a confidante to Lucifer, will surely have a lot of advice to dole out. And, by the time she’s done with them, she may need a therapist of her own.
