Lucifer is one of those comic adaptations that you weren’t sure was going to work. And yet, it fit right at home alongside Gotham on its Monday block, and has been renewed for a third season. And with that third season will come a new cast member in the form of Tom Welling.
If that name is familiar, that’s because Welling was the actor who played Clark Kent/Superman on Smallville for 10 years. He’s going to be playing police lieutenant Marcus Pierce. A very respected police officer who is going to be working alongside Decker, and that causes Lucifer to have…well…issues.
The third series will also deal with the fallout of Season 02, mainly Lucifer’s kidnapping, and the fact that his angel wings are somehow growing back.
Lucifer returns October 2nd on Fox.
