A comedy-drama series airing on Fox has received a renewal from the network. Fox announced today that it has ordered a third season of “Lucifer.”
The network ordered 22 episodes. The series, which stars Tom Ellis, Lauren German, Kevin Alejandro and D.B. Woodside, has been airing its second season, which returns with its spring premiere on Monday, May 1.
In the fantasy police procedural, Lucifer moves to Los Angeles and helps the LAPD take down criminals. The series is based on characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for Vertigo, from DC Entertainment. Executive producers are Ildy Modrovich, Len Wiseman, Jonathan Littman, Jerry Bruckheimer and Joe Henderson.
The show has been averaging 8 million total viewers across multiple platforms.
Said David Madden, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company: “‘Lucifer’ is one of those rare shows that starts strong out of the gate, and just keeps getting better and better. Tom, Lauren and the entire cast have really made these characters three-dimensional, and the production team — Jerry, Len, Jonathan, Joe and Ildy — is one of the best in the business. We’d also like to thank our partners Warner Bros. for their commitment to this show and we look forward to seeing where this wildly innovative series takes us in Season Three.”
