FOX is giving Lucifer fans all treats and no tricks this Halloween. The network has ordered an additional nine episodes of the supernatural drama, bringing the episode count for Lucifer Season 2 to 22 (aka a full season order).
“Lucifer continues to deliver, with great blasts of dark humor and ambitious storytelling,” said David Madden, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “The show has turned out to be a true wicked pleasure, the perfect companion to Gotham, and we couldn’t be more pleased to order these nine additional episodes,” said Madden. “We’d like to thank Tom, Lauren and the entire cast, who have imbued these characters with charm, humor and a great deal of humanity. Our thanks also go out to the production crew — Jerry, Len, Jonathan, Joe and Ildy — who, week-in and week-out, deliver a stellar show. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for the rest of the season.”
Per FOX, Lucifer Season 2 is averaging 8.0 million multi-platform viewers, posting a +105% jump vs. Live + Same Day. The show will continue airing uninterrupted episodes through Monday, Nov. 28.
In tonight’s all-new installment, titled “Monster,” Lucifer (Tom Ellis) clashes with Chloe (Lauren German) during an investigation, leading her to team up with Dan (Kevin Alejandro) instead. Meanwhile, Amenadiel (DB Woodside) bonds with Charlotte (Tricia Helfer), and Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) takes Trixie (Scarlett Estevez) trick-or-treating.
