‘Rosewood,’ ‘Lucifer’ Score Season 2 Renewals From Fox

Both shows have seen significant rise in delayed viewing

Fox has renewed freshman dramas “Lucifer” and “Rosewood” for second seasons, the network announced Thursday.

“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,” said David Madden, president of entertainment for the Fox Broadcasting Company.

“With ‘Rosewood,’ creator Todd Harthan has put a fresh, playful spin on the procedural format, infusing it with wit and warmth, while Morris, Jaina and the show’s gifted supporting cast have turned in fantastic performances,” Madden continued. “We look forward to two stand-out sophomore seasons from both series.”

“Lucifer” is averaging just under five million viewers per episode in live-plus-same day ratings but has seen a lift to 10.5 million total viewers across platforms in delayed viewing. It is also Fox’s second-highest-rated new series this season among adults 18-49 and No. 5 among new broadcast series this season with adults 18-49.

“Rosewood” is averaging about the same number of viewers live-plus-same day as “Lucifer” but is averaging 7.8 million total viewers across platforms in delayed viewing. It ranks among this season’s Top 10 new broadcast dramas in adults 18-49.

“Lucifer” is produced by Warner Bros. Television, in association with Jerry Bruckheimer Television. The series is based on characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for DC Entertainment’s Vertigo imprint. Tom Kapinos wrote and executive-produced the pilot.

The series is executive-produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson. Len Wiseman serves as director and executive producer. Kapinos is executive consultant on the series.
