Season 2 of Fox’s Lucifer (premiering Monday, Sept. 19 at 9/8c) picks up two days after the May finale’s bombshell drop, and Lucifer and Amenadiel (Tom Ellis and D.B. Woodside) “have been on the hunt for mom,” showrunner Joe Henderson tells TVLine.
The brothers, though, aren’t exactly best buds bound by a common goal. “There’s a bit of jealousy,” says the EP. After all, “Amenadiel always wants to do Dad’s bidding, yet he’s not the one who got the marching orders.”
Played by new series regular Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica), Mum aka ”Charlotte” escaped Hell with an agenda that is both “very emotional, and very genuine” — though it will shift, Henderson teases. This unexpected family reunion eventually summons the angel Uriel (The Sopranos‘ Michael Imperioli), though whether he’s friend or foe to his bros “will be a mystery.”
Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt) has her own conflicted feelings about Charlotte; given the demon’s former job as Hell’s chief enforcer, “She may be wanting to finish the job she started,” Henderson warns. Chloe (Lauren German), meanwhile, will investigate Lucifer anew, having seen him survive another point-blank shooting — and this time she has a blood sample to work with….
BONUS SPOILER!: Seeing how Lucifer tends to “take her advice and twist it for his own purposes,” Dr. Linda (Rachael Harris) will wonder, “Is she helping him at all?” says Henderson. “And if not, maybe it’s time to end their sessions for good.”
