Will There Be ‘Lucifer’ Season 3 on FOX?
“Lucifer” kicked off its second season with a serious drop of the viewing audience, losing over 39% of the viewers, drawing only 4.360 million viewers, but the season premiere has received universal acclaim among critics and viewers. Undoubtedly, millions of loyal fans are eager to know, whether or not “Lucifer” will return for Season 3 on FOX, and if this happens, when will its release date? There as been no official announcement of the renewal hitherto. But you can scroll down, to subscribe for our notifications, or get acquainted with our forecast on the subject.
Honestly, we estimate the odds on renewal as very possible, relying on a brilliant reception of the current season, which is able to affect on the decision on renewal. Let’s take a look at some figures in order to confirm our assumptions. Currently, according to IMDB, “Lucifer” has a score of 8.3 out of 10 based on over 57,400 user votes, approx. 200 reviews from viewers and about 23 reviews from critics. At the same time, according to Rotten Tomatoes, the second season of the police procedural drama has an average score of 7.8 out of 10 and a 100% approval rating based on 5 reviews from critics, while the viewers have rated the current season of “Lucifer” at 4.8 out of 5 with a 100% approval rating based on 32 user votes. Meanwhile, according to Metacritic, the current season of the drama series has a score of 7.0 out of 10 based on 11 user ratings.
The premiere of Season 1 has drawn 4.360 million viewers (-39.07% compared to last season’s premiere) with a 1.30 demo rating among adults (18-49). For comparison, Lucifer Season 1 averaged a 1.47 rating in the 18-49 demographic with 4.56 million total viewers. Despite the decrease of the viewing audience, we still consider these figures pretty strong (for a second season), given the fact that the audience usually decreases each next season. Thus, our verdict is that “Lucifer” has a very high potential to be renewed for a next season.
“Lucifer” focuses on the story of the fallen angel, who is currently residing in Los Angeles, manages his own nightclub, as well as assists the LAPD to solve crimes and punish criminals. In Season 2, Lucifer reunites with his mother. The TV series is created by Tom Kapinos.
On October 31, 2016, FOX picked up “Lucifer” for a full second season, consisting of 22 episodes. This event serves as a pretty favourable indicator, which is able to affect the decision on the further renewal of the police procedural comedy-drama for a third season.
“Lucifer” Season 2A came to an end on Nov 28, garnering 4.088 million viewers (+12.59%) with a 1.10 demo rating (+5.77%) among adults (18-49) during its mid-season finale. Fortunately, FOX has announced the return dates for its TV shows. According to the schedule, “Lucifer” is returning for a Season 2B on Monday, January 16, 2017 at 9|8c on FOX.
During the “Lucifer” mid-season finale Charlotte is determined to get Lucifer to leave Earth by turning Chloe against him. Meanwhile, Amenadiel has begun working as Charlotte’s soldier, which makes Maze question his loyalty.
