The Devil You Say! ‘Lucifer’ Resurrected On TNT

by Thomas Tuna

In case you missed the devilish fun the first time, here’s some heavenly news.

Lucifer–the popular horror/fantasy series that ran for three seasons on Fox before winding up its six-season run on Netflix last year–has found a new syndicated home on TNT, according to a report on collider.com.

The first three seasons of the Tom Ellis-led series were acquired by TNT from Warner Bros. Television, and the network will air three episodes from those seasons every Wednesday.

Lucifer–based on DC Comics characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg–follows the uncanny adventures of the original fallen angel, Lucifer Morningstar (Ellis), as he abandons his throne in Hell and retires to Los Angeles. While operating a nightclub called Lux, he meets LAPD Detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German) and helps her fight the local criminal element.

The series–developed by Tom Kapinos and led by showrunners Ildy Modrovich and Joe Henderson–also stars Kevin Alejandro, D.B. Woodside, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Tricia Helfer, Aimee Garcia, Scarlett Estevez, Tom Welling and Rachel Harris.

The first three seasons received mixed reviews, but the final three (no word yet on whether they will also be syndicated) were nominated for People’s Choice and Saturn Awards. In fact, according to Nielsen numbers, Lucifer was the most-streamed original series last year.
