The first season of the TV show “Lucifer” aired on FOX on January 25, 2016 and has since then gathered a lot interest from viewers and critics. Seeing the show gain over 7 million viewers, FOX in April decided to renew the TV show for a sophomore season. The show centres around Lucifer Morningstar, the devil himself on a vacation in Los Angeles after getting bored of doing his “Dad’s” dirty works. He finds himself in a tangled mess with his crime fighting – detective sidekick Chloe Decker while trying to run a successful night club and avoid been coaxed into returning to hell by his angel brother (Amenadiel) who believes the writing in the first season earned it a second instalment.
“We got picked up for Season 2, so obviously. What they came up with for Season 1 worked and was successful and it worked well enough to get us a second season that looks like it’s going to be longer than the first season.” D.B. Woodside, who stars as angel Amenadiel.
The TV show created by Tom Kaponis scored high with the viewers rating it 7.6/10. Rotten tomatoes gave the season one a 49% and IMDB an 8.4 out of 10 based on 42,800 user votes.
As earlier mentioned, the crime dramedy was renewed for another season this April and despite mixed reviews from critics, it comes as no surprise because people who actually watch it rate it highly enough. FOX has yet to announce the release date for the sophomore season but according to rumours, it is scheduled to return this fall.
