Tom Welling (Smallville) will join Lucifer in season 3. Welling will play "Marcus Pierce," an accomplished police lieutenant who is everything Lucifer (Tom Ellis) is not - strategic, reserved and well-respected. But perhaps even more annoying are all the things they have in common. Both men are charming, charismatic and handsome as hell. So when Pierce starts developing a connection with Decker (Lauren German), Lucifer's devilish traits are inflamed.

Entering its third season, the story of the original fallen angel continues, when Lucifer season 3 returns Monday, Oct. 2 in its new time period (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. As Season Two came to a close, Lucifer took care of a little problem called Mom, aka Charlotte (Tricia Helfer). But now he's facing an even greater challenge - finding out who kidnapped him, and why his angel wings are back.
