According to the current news, the series under the title “Lucifer is still on the bubble. The developers seem to have no idea about the fate of the project and hold us in suspension. That, of course, makes us hope that the answer to the question whether the project is going to continue will be positive.
Short outline: creators and series’ opponents
The immediate creator and leader of the behind-the-scenes crew is the one and only Tom Kapinos. The main cast consists of such performers as D.B. Woodside, Tom Ellis, and Lauren German.
The haters have been complaining about the appearance of the devil as a human. The fact he is portrayed in a very impressive and positive way, as he helps people greatly in the series, was deemed especially scandalous to them. About 150 thousand people have signed the petition against the series. However, it hasn’t changed anything, just as in the case of the comic book created by Neil Gaiman, on which the story of the series is based.
What about the narrative?
As you have already guessed (unless you’ve watched it), “Lucifer” is a series about the evil side of our life. It is about Lucifer, the fallen angel. The evil king, bored by staying in hell, decides to visit Los Angeles where he begins working for the police as a special consultant. And why not? His super powers make people tell him truth can be useful when it comes to criminal investigation. He can read humans like a book, penetrating inside their motives and thoughts.
His partner at his new work is the charming detective Chloe Decked. She is also a love interest of the principal title character. Thus, even this story can’t go without the line of love in its plot.
Renewal: expectations and ratings
The ratings of the first season turned to be a mixture of positive as well as quite negative commentaries from the critics. Generally, though, it was a success if we look at the serial’s ratings on different websites. It has a firm foundation, more than 8 out of 10 points.
The premiere episode audience exceeded 7 million people. However, it dropped down to 5.5 million later. But this shouldn’t be considered as a failure. The series won its constant number of audiences. And 5 million is an excellent number for the ratings.
It seems that the developers have mixed feelings and do not share the position mentioned above. At least they are not in a hurry to announce the next chapter of the story though the story seems to have much to tell us. And the creators should also have ideas that must be made real in any case, taking into account that the story of the launched season doesn’t cover the one depicted in the book.
Thus, the Lucifer season 2 release date remains now unknown as well the possibility of the series renewal. Let’s hope for better news to come to us. And stay tuned to get information from the first hands at the right time.
Update: Lucifer Season 2 Release Date Out and Confirmed!
Rejoice, for the date of the renewal is finally out!
On a more serious note, though, we don’t just have a confirmation that a new episode is on its way. A tentative release date is not what we have to offer you either. No, we have the final, confirmed release date for Lucifer Season 2 and it’s January 16, 2017. A little more than a month now, and the clock is ticking.
