Fox's confidence in Lucifer, the loose adaptation of the Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth, and Mike Dringenberg created comic, has grown with the show recently getting an extension on its season two order. (Season one was just thirteen episodes). And now the network has picked up Lucifer for an early renewal, giving season three a full 22 episodes in advance.
David Madden, president of entertainment for Fox Broadcasting Company was quick to praise the show.
"Lucifer’ is one of those rare shows that starts strong out of the gate, and just keeps getting better and better. 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 Three."
Lucifer stars Tom Ellis as the lead character and is currently on a mid-season break, with nine further episodes airing at the start of May. You can check out our review of the last episode here.
