DC Gets Evil with Lucifer Season 3 Comic-Con Sizzle Reel

By Brian Gallagher — July 22nd, 2017

During the Lucifer Comic-Con panel, where it was announced that Tom Welling has joined the Season 3 cast, Fox also debuted a brand new sizzle reel with the first footage from the upcoming season. Unfortunately, we don't get to see Tom Welling's character, Marcus Pierce, in this footage, but his character is described as an accomplished police lieutenant who is quite the opposite of Lucifer, since he's strategic, reserved and well-respected, although they are also charismatic, charming and handsome. After Marcus develops a connection with Decker (Lauren German), Lucifer's "devilish traits are inflamed."

At the end of Season One, Chloe watched Lucifer die, only to come back to life, causing more confusion over who he really is. Meanwhile, her estranged husband, Dan (Kevin Alejandro), who is also an LAPD detective, came clean about his involvement in a corrupt case - jeopardizing not only his job, but also their relationship.

In Season Two, Lucifer and his brother, Amenadiel (DB Woodside), who have been sparring over Lucifer's resistance to returning to the underworld, will now be brought back together for one common goal - to find their mother, Charlotte (Tricia Helfer, Battlestar Galactica), who escaped Hell. After all, Lucifer doesn't take after his dad, so the parent he does resemble is sure to be quite terrifying. Lucifer's work with the LAPD also is upended when the police force hires Ella Lopez (Aimee Garcia The George Lopez Show), a smart, tough forensic scientist whose mutual belief in both faith and science proves a point of interest to Lucifer.

At the end of Season 2, Lucifer was kidnapped and left in the desert, realizing that he got his angel wings back. We can see in this sizzle reel, which debuted on Lucifer YouTube shortly after the SDCC panel, that Lucifer is still up to his old tricks, while we also catch up with the rest of the series regulars in this new season.

The Devil has come to Los Angeles... Based upon the characters created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg for DC Entertainment's Vertigo imprint, Lucifer is the story of the original fallen angel. Bored and unhappy as the Lord of Hell, Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis, Merlin) has abandoned his throne and retired to L.A., where he owns Lux, an upscale nightclub. Charming, charismatic and devilishly handsome, Lucifer is enjoying his retirement, indulging in a few of his favorite things - wine, women and song - when a beautiful pop star is brutally murdered outside of Lux.

For the first time in roughly 10 billion years, he feels something awaken deep within him as a result of this murder. Compassion? Sympathy? The very thought disturbs him - as well as his best friend and confidante, Mazikeen aka Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt, The Librarians), a fierce demon in the form of a beautiful young woman. The murder attracts the attention of LAPD homicide detective Chloe Dancer (Lauren German, Chicago Fire), who initially is dismissive of Lucifer. But she becomes intrigued by his talent for drawing out people's secrets and his desire to dispense justice, doling out punishment to those who deserve it. As they work together to solve the pop star's murder, Lucifer is struck by Chloe's inherent goodness. Accustomed to dealing with the absolute worst of humanity, Lucifer is intrigued by Chloe's apparent purity and begins to wonder if there's hope for his own soul yet. At the same time, God's emissary, the angel Amenadiel (DB Woodside, Suits, 24), has been sent to Los Angeles to convince Lucifer to return to the underworld...can the Devil incarnate be tempted toward the side of Good, or will his original calling pull him back toward Evil? Take a look at this new sizzle reel for Lucifer, which returns Monday, October 2 on Fox.
