‘Lucifer’ Grabs Full-Season Renewal From Fox

Here’s some news appropriate for Halloween: Fox has given a full-season pickup to its sophomore drama “Lucifer.”

The Monday 9 p.m. drama from Warner Bros. TV has been a modest performer in live ratings but draws a respectable crowd with double-digit gains in Nielsen’s L3 and L7 delayed-viewing stats. To date, the show is averaging a 2.0 demo rating in adults 18-49 and about 6.6 million viewers in L7. Fox said the show is up to 8 million viewers for the season to date on average when all multiplatform viewing is factored in.

The DC Comics-inspired drama stars Tom Ellis as a bored Lord of Hell who decides to move to Los Angeles and team with a female cop (played by Lauren German) to take down criminals. “Lucifer” airs as the companion to fellow DC Comics property “Gotham.”

Fox’s back-nine order brings the show’s total episode tally for season two to 22.

“ ‘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,” said Fox entertainment president David Madden.

Bruckheimer TV’s Jerry Bruckheimer and Jonathan Littman are exec producers with showrunner Joe Henderson, Ildy Modrovich and director Len Wiseman.
