“Lucifer” the Fox hit show starring Tricia Helfer as Charlotte Richards (AKA the Former Godess of All Creation) has had an early season 3 renewal by the network for a full 22 episode order, Deadline was first to report.
Lucifer, based on the characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for Vertigo, stars Tom Ellis, Lauren German, 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 Fox entertainment president David Madden. “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.”
Lucifer’s second season returns from hiatus on May 1. Lucifer (Ellis) has gone off the grid and cut off all contact from his family and the police department following Chloe’s (German) near-death. But the murder of an up-and-coming guitarist causes him to resurface – with a new mystery woman. Meanwhile, Lucifer’s mom (Helfer) realizes she might have found a way to finally get them back to heaven.
