Fox has ordered a 22-episode third season of “Lucifer,” the network announced on Monday.
The series follows The Devil himself (Tom Ellis) as he moves to Los Angeles and teams up with an LAPD detective (Lauren German) to take down criminals.
In addition to Ellis and German, the series also stars Rachael Harris, DB Woodside, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Kevin Alejandro, Aimee Garcia, Tricia Helfer and Scarlett Estevez.
“‘Lucifer’ is one of those rare shows that starts strong out of the gate, and just keeps getting better and better,” said David Madden, president of entertainment for Fox Broadcasting Company.
“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,” Madden continued. “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.”
The series is produced by Warner Bros. Television, in association with Jerry Bruckheimer Television and Aggressive Mediocrity.
The series is based on characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for Vertigo, from DC Entertainment. Tom Kapinos wrote and executive-produced the pilot. The series is also executive-produced by Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson. Len Wiseman serves as director and executive producer. Kapinos serves as executive consultant on the series.
“Lucifer” returns for its spring premiere on May 1.
