FOX has dished out a back-nine order to Lucifer, taking the show’s second season to a full 22 episodes and increasing its chances of a third season renewal.
FOX Broadcasting president David Madden said:
Lucifer continues to deliver, with great blasts of dark humor and ambitious storytelling. 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. 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.”
