Fox has officially announced that Lucifer has survived round one and fans will be seeing a second season. Can I get an amen?! Not appropriate? Ok, moving on …
When I found out that one of my favourite comics was coming to TV, I nearly lost my fangirl mind. Lucifer, which is a spin-off by Vertigo from Neil Gaiman’s Sandman series, made its television debut January 25th of 2016. Producers have stated that the show will differ in some key ways from the comics but that the general feel, character direction, and schemes will remain the same.
Satan, Abaddon, The Accuser, Beelzebub, Devil … he goes by many names. So what happens when Lucifer Morningstar, Lord of Hell and original fallen angel becomes bored with it all and his role in the balance of good and evil? Skips Hell altogether and runs a nightclub in Los Angeles, of course! Shenanigans are sure to follow with this lavish character who unabashedly admits his title to the human world all the while deciding it would be ‘fun’ to team up with a police detective (Lauren German) to solve all sorts of crimes.
The show has made a surprising amount of success given the controversial nature of both the comic and the TV adaptation. With earning the ranking of fifth highest rated broadcast among its demographic, the success of Lucifer averages around 10.5 million viewers across all platforms.
FOX President David Madden weighs in:
“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.”
You can catch Lucifer on Monday nights on Fox at 9:00 PM ET. If you are looking for a good binge marathon, you can also check the series out on Hulu.
