The Fox series debuted in January 2016 and ran for three seasons, with season three set to wrap this Monday, May 14. In addition to Ellis, the show stars Lauren German, Kevin Alejandro, D.B. Woodside and Lesley-Ann Brandt.
“Lucifer” is executive produced by Kapinos, Ildy Modrovich, Len Wiseman, Jonathan Littman, Jerry Bruckheimer and Joe Henderson. The show has averaged a 1.1 rating this season in the key demo of adults 18-49 in Live+7.
