Variety reported today that Fox has picked up Lucifer for a third season totalling 22 new episodes.
Fox Broadcasting entertainment president David Madden praised Lucifer as, “…one of those rare shows that starts strong out of the gate, and just keeps getting better and better, “Tom, Lauren and the entire cast have really made these characters three-dimensional, and the production team — Jerry, Len, Jonathan, Joe and Ildy — is one of the best in the business. We’d also like to thank our partners Warner Bros. for their commitment to this show and we look forward to seeing where this wildly innovative series takes us in Season 3.”
One factor in the renewal is certainly Lucifer’s ratings, which have been solid for the program, averaging 8 million viewers per episode across all television and digital platforms. Lucifer will return on May 1st to finish off Season Two.
