As reported by Variety, Fox has announced that "Lucifer," the series based on the Vertigo series of the same name, has been renewed for a second season. The announcement comes along with news that another freshman Fox drama, "Rosewood," will also return for a second season.
"We knew we had something special with 'Lucifer,' from the engaging performances of Tom, Lauren and the rest of the charismatic cast, to Len Wiseman's visually stunning look of the show and the amazing storytelling savvy of the Bruckheimer team," said Fox's president of entertainment David Madden in a press release. "With 'Rosewood,' creator Todd Harthan has put a fresh, playful spin on the procedural format, infusing it with wit and warmth, while Morris, Jaina and the show's gifted supporting cast have turned in fantastic performances. We look forward to two stand-out sophomore seasons from both series."
"Lucifer" debuted on Fox on January 25 and, according to Fox, is currently averaging 10.5 million total viewers. The series, which is produced by Warner Bros. Television in association with Jerry Bruckheimer Television, stars Tom Ellis as a bored Lucifer now serving as a consultant for the LAPD. Chloe Decker co-stars as LAPD homicide detective Chloe Decker.
Tom Kapinos and Len Wiseman serve as executive produce alongside Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman and Ildy Modrovich. While Kapinos developed the project, based on the Vertigo series written by Mike Carey and illustrated by Peter Gross, Ryan Kelly and Dean Ormston, "White Collar" and "Almost Human" Co-Executive Producer Joe Henderson serves as showrunner for the series.
The next episode of "Lucifer," an installment titled "St. Lucifer," will air on Fox on Monday, April 11 at 9 PM ET.
