Fox Puts In Full Season Order For Lucifer

Lucifer will get a full second season after Fox decided to increase the number of episodes allotted to the supernatural drama.

Currently in the middle of its second season, the network’s decision is a major triumph for the show. Since its debut last year, Lucifer has performed well with both audiences and critics, something that, if today’s announcement is anything to go by, has not gone unnoticed by Fox studio executives.

Lucifer continues to deliver, with great blasts of dark humor and ambitious storytelling,” said Fox entertainment president David Madden. “The show has turned out to be a true wicked pleasure, the perfect companion to Gotham, and we couldn’t be more pleased to order these nine additional episodes.”

Lucifer has been consistent, with its ratings on par and sometime even edging Monday companion Gotham. For Week 4, the most recent with Live+7 data available, Lucifer drew a 7-day Total Multi-Platform Average audience of 7.2 million total viewers, nearly double (+95%) its Live+Same Day delivery (3.7 million). The show’s L+7 adults 18-49 rating, 1.9, was up 90% vs. Live+Same Day (1.0). Lucifer again out-delivered its lead-in, Gotham (1.8 in L7), and posted the highest Live+7 percentage lift on Monday night.

In total viewers, Lucifer is averaging 8 million multi-platform viewers season to date, posting a 105% jump vs. Live+Same Day. The series is airing a Halloween-themed episode tonight, one of five originals in a row.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
