L.A. is hotter than ever with the return of Lucifer in Season 3 of FOX’s television series, Lucifer.
In the Season 2 finale, we saw Lucifer (Tom Ellis) cast his mother into a neutral dimension and just as he was about to confess his identity to Chloe (Lauren German) over the phone, he was whisked away to the desert where he awakens to find his wings have returned. Now Lucifer will face an even greater challenge – finding out who kidnapped him, and why his angel wings are back.
The third season will see Lucifer suffer an identity crisis now that his wings have returned, especially since he is still a devil with angel wings. There will also be a new face joining our cast this season played by Smallville actor Tom Welling in his first return to television since the popular CW series ended in 2011 after 10 seasons. Welling will be playing LAPD Lieutenant Marcus Pierce who rubs everyone the wrong way with his strong belief in justice, but his character could end up being a potential love interest for Chloe.
Originally Lucifer Season 2 consisted of 18 episodes until FOX gave the series an additional four episodes which were meant to air for the second season, but showrunner Joe Henderson decided to place them in Season 3. These four episodes will serve as a ‘mini-series’, but will be spread throughout Season 3 making this season 22 episodes long.
If you haven’t heard of this delightful series, it is 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 who becomes bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, Lucifer Morningstar. He instead abandons his throne and retires to Los Angeles, where he teams up with LAPD detective Chloe Decker to take down criminals.
His character is charming, charismatic and devilishly handsome, and 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 realisation 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.
Lucifer returns today at 8pm ET on Fox.
