A combination of steady ratings and critical acclaim have garnered FOX series Lucifer a pickup of nine more episodes to complete a full second season order.

The series, based on the character who first appeared in DC’s Sandman comic (created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg) and his own subsequent title, has been transplanted into a procedural that pairs the Lord of Hell in Self-Exile with a female homicide detective who intrigues him because his powers of persuasion don’t work on her.

Tonight’s new episode, Monster, is a Halloween-themed ep that features a zombie wedding and a unique Halloweening team. For more, read on.

This week on Lucifer (Mondays, 9/8C): After a lovely, mischievous season premiere in which we met Lucifer’s mum in the last scene, this week we get to see if she’s the celestial ball of savagery Lucifer thinks she is.

Liar, Liar, Slutty Dress On Fire shows us how Mum arrived on this mortal coil – after first showing us a few other arrivals (all looking for Lucifer). Needless to say, her arrival involves a murder that Lucifer is sure she committed.

The second season of Lucifer (Mondays, 9/8C) kicks off with a juicy murder – a TV star’s stand-in is found dead with metal horns stuck in her skull! Lucifer is certain it’s a sign that his Mother is out to get him.

Despite the task Mr. Morningstar was given in the show’s first season finale, things haven’t changed too much – Everything’s Comin Up Lucifer is a smidgen darker than all but the last couple of first season episodes, but the deeply disturbing whimsy is still there and the result remains highly entertaining.

The first season of Lucifer (FOX, Mondays, 9/8C) comes a close with an episode that requires us to watch to the final word – for a cliffhanger that reveals the one thing that actually scares the devil.

But first, Lucifer Morningstar must work with his angelic brother, Amenadiel to find the crooked cop who framed him (perfectly) for murder.

Lucifer (FOX, Mondays, 9/8C) has turned to be a surprisingly intriguing adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s comics character that mixes the Lucifer that we know from the comics with a police procedural. Even as I thoroughly enjoyed the series premiere, I didn’t know if this curious mix would work.

With #TeamLucifer, the penultimate episode of season one, I’m still waiting for it to falter and pleased to note that it shows no sign of doing so. The inevitable Satanism episode turns in unexpected directions – playing with the notion that not everything is what it seems, and evil might not come from the obvious places.

FOX’s Lucifer (Mondays, 9/8C) is a silky smooth hour of supernatural sleuthing and amoral indifference featuring the Lord of Hell – Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis) himself – who has tired of the boring responsibilities of Hell and quit to live up among the most unpredictable of God’s creations: humanity. So, naturally, he runs an upscale nightclub/bar, with his fellow former inhabitant of Hell, Maze (Lesly Ann Brandt).

He doesn’t give a fig about our laws, but when a friend of his – whom he helped make a star – is killed he takes personal offense which leads him to provide (impose) his help on the detective investigating the case.
