Fox renews Lucifer for a devilish second season

04.07.2016by: Brennan Klein

To be completely honest, I haven't been watching Fox's Lucifer, but evidently someone has, because the show has been renewed for a second season, along with the freshman drama Rosewood. Apparently, it's been averaging about 10.5 million viewers per episode, which ain't bad at all in this day and age.

The fact that the horror TV boom that has erupted following the success of The Walking Dead is actually getting viewership is a very exciting development, proving that genre television can definitely hold its own against the more veteran series.

Said Fox entertainment president David Madden:

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.

The show revolves around:

Lucifer (Tom Ellis), who, bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, resigns his throne and abandons his kingdom for the gorgeous, shimmering insanity of Los Angeles, where he gets his kicks helping the LAPD punish criminals.

Lucifer also stars Lauren German (“Chicago Fire”) as Chloe Dancer, an LAPD homicide detective who finds herself both repulsed and fascinated by Lucifer; Lesley-Ann Brandt (“Spartacus”) as Lucifer’s best friend Maze, a fierce demon who takes the form of a human woman; Nicholas Gonzalez (“Sleepy Hollow”) as Dan, an LAPD homicide detective wary of Lucifer; D.B. Woodside as Amenadiel, an angel sent to L.A. to persuade Lucifer to return to hell; and Rachael Harris as Linda, Lucifer’s therapist.

The penultimate episode of the first season, entitled "St. Lucifer," will premiere Monday, April 11th.

Shocked this was renewed

The whole concept of this show isn't that enthralling. It's a police procedural dressed up as a supernatural drama. Why would the all powerful Lucifer, son of THE devil, come to Earth to be a sidekick to a cop? Even on paper it's ludicrous. Also, it's characters are beyond cliche. The fun-loving charismatic male lead with the sourpuss no fun female lead. I think we've seen this dynamic somewhere before (Sleepy Hollow, Minority Report, Bones, hell, every sitcom ever) This must have the

I think we've seen this dynamic somewhere before (Sleepy Hollow, Minority Report, Bones, hell, every sitcom ever) This must have the same viewership as 2 Broke Girls because somebody is watching these lame shows to keep them on the air. Watch Sleepy Hollow or better yet, Grimm instead.

My wife and I watch Lucifer every week. I have not read the comics (although it is on my list), but I have enjoyed the show. I would love to see it evolve beyond the [link] format and really embrace all aspects of itself, especially now that it has another full season to grow. The cast is phenomenal in it.
