Although the Lucifer TV show has been cancelled by FOX, and The CW isn’t picking it up, there’s still more devilish charm coming to a TV near you. FOX has announced it is airing a two-hour “bonus” episode of Lucifer, season three, on Monday, May 28, 2018 from 8:00pm to 10:00pm ET/PT. Check out the description for “Boo Normal” and “Once Upon a Time,” below. This isn’t the first time there have been “stray” episodes of the procedural. The production found itself in a somewhat similar position at the end of season two, with the main difference being it had already been renewed for another season.
A FOX comedy-drama, Lucifer stars Tom Ellis, Lauren German, DB Woodside, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Kevin Alejandro, Rachael Harris, Aimee Garcia, Tricia Helfer, Scarlett Estevez, and Tom Welling. The supernatural TV series centers on Lucifer Morningstar (Ellis) who abandoned his throne, retired to Los Angeles, opened up a nightclub, and started helping LAPD Detective Chloe Decker (German) crack cases. Neil Gaiman narrates the bonus installment as the voice of God.
Here’s the FOX press release, with the guest stars and all the details.
