Is Lucifer staging a father-son reunion?
In the first promo for the Fox drama’s spring premiere, the titular character calls out to “dad” after our first glimpse of guest star Timothy Omundson, who is seen approaching Lucifer’s mom. As previously announced, the Galavant alum has been cast as someone who just might be God, aka Lucifer and Amenadiel’s father. Also revealed in the 30-second tease: Lucifer is crafting a plan to return everyone to Heaven. Well, almost everyone. (Sorry, Mom!)
Per Fox, the first episode back picks up two weeks after Chloe’s near death. In that time, “Lucifer has gone off the grid, cutting off all contact from his family and the police department. He materializes just in time to help solve an up-and-coming guitarist’s murder and introduces the department to a ditzy stripper named Candy (The Carrie Diaries‘ Lindsey Gort), a mysterious new woman in his life. While Lucifer’s mom desperately tries to contact her son, Chloe tries to push him away,” forcing Lucifer to “find a way to prove himself in order to be invited back onto the team.”
Lucifer returns on Monday, May 1 at 9/8c with what are now the final five episodes of Season 2. As first reported in March, the supernatural drama will hold Episodes 19-22 of its second season order for fall, which are said to be more standalone in nature.
