'Lucifer' season 3 news: Fox announces series renewal


It seems that the Lord of Hell still has unfinished business on Earth, particularly in Los Angeles, California. It’s official, Fox’s “Lucifer” will return for another season.

In a statement recently released (via Entertainment Weekly), Fox Broadcasting Company executive David Madden confirmed that the fantasy-comedy-drama series is set for a third season, and it’s going to have 22 episodes.

“Lucifer is one of those rare shows that starts strong out of the gate and just keeps getting better and better,” the network executive stated.

“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 3,” Madden added.

As noted in the last episode, titled “A Good Day to Die,” Lucifer (Tom Ellis) returned to hell to talk to Dr. Carlisle (Tim DeKay) about the antidote of Chloe’s (Lauren German) failing health. Maze (Lesley Ann-Brandt) and Dr. Linda (Rachael Harris) were having difficulty reviving Lucifer, so Charlotte (Tricia Helfer) went back to hell and found Lucifer fighting with his brother, Uriel (Michael Imperioli).

Lucifer brought his mom back to life, and he met with Ella (Aimee Garcia) and Dan (Kevin Alejandro), who were able to gather the ingredients for the cure. Chloe was healed. Lucifer and Chloe kissed, but the latter realized that they couldn’t be together. He decided to leave the city without telling Chloe.

Meanwhile, the second half of season 2 will premiere on May 1. It looks like the romance between Lucifer and Chloe is disabling them to be good investigators, especially if the suspect is an old flame.
