Plot Synopsis

Based on characters from "The Sandman" comic book series, LUCIFER centers on Lucifer Morningstar, who is bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, so he resigns his throne and abandons his kingdom for Los Angeles, where he gets his kicks helping the LAPD punish criminals. Lucifer works with Chloe Decker, an LAPD homicide detective who finds herself both repulsed and fascinated by Lucifer. As they work together to solve a murder, Lucifer is struck by Chloe's inherent goodness and begins to wonder if there is hope for the human race. Plus, he becomes intrigued with the idea of punishing criminals, sending the devil himself into a struggle between good and evil. While working with Chloe, Lucifer encounters: Linda, a therapist who he later seeks for professional advice; and Dan, a gruff LAPD homicide detective, who is wary of Lucifer's involvement with his wife and daughter. While on Earth, Lucifer connects with his best friend Maze, a fierce demon in the form of a beautiful young woman, but he's also pursued by Amenadiel, an angel sent to The City of Angels to persuade Lucifer to return to Hell. Season 2 of LUCIFER premiered on Monday, September 19, 2016 at 9pm ET/PT on FOX. At the end of Season 1, Chloe watched Lucifer die, only to come back to life, causing more confusion over who he really is. Meanwhile, her estranged husband, DAn, who is also an LAPD detective, came clean about his involvement in a corrupt case -- jeopardizing not only his job, but also their relationship. In Season 2, Lucifer and his brother, Amenadiel, who have been sparring over Lucifer's resistance to returning to the underworld, will now be brought back together for one common goal -- to find their mother, Charlotte, who escaped Hell. After all, Lucifer doesn't take after his dad, so the parent he does resemble is sure to be quite terrifying. Lucifer's work with the LAPD also is upended when the police force hires Ella Lopez, a smart, tough forensic scientist whose mutual belief in both faith and science proves a point of interest to Lucifer. With mom on the loose, Dr. Linda Martin, who has become not only a therapist, but also a confidante to Lucifer, will surely have a lot of advice to dole out. And, by the time she's done with them, she may need a therapist of her own.
On Monday, May 29, 2017 at 9pm ET/PT, FOX premiered the Season 2 finale of LUCIFER. In the season ender, "The Good, the Bad and the Crispy," after Charlotte accidentally charbroils a man to death in self-defense, Lucifer must try and keep Chloe from figuring out the truth. Lucifer puts Maze in charge of finding Charlotte and Amenadiel, who have both gone missing in light of recent circumstances, while he finds a permanent solution for the ticking-time-bomb he calls Mom. Two weeks earlier -- on Monday, May 15 -- FOX announced that LUCIFER will return for its third season this Fall, airing 8pm on Mondays.
