TOM WELLING JOINS “LUCIFER” IN SEASON THREE
LUCIFER Returns Monday, October 2, in its New Time Period (8:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX
Tom Welling (“Smallville”) will join Season Three of LUCIFER. 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 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.
Tom Welling is best known for playing “Clark Kent/Superman” on the long-running television series “Smallville.” In addition to acting, he directed multiple episodes of the series and served as an executive producer.

My wife and I generally enjoy this show. It has very little to do with the comics, but it's often witty, the dirty jokes are often fairly clever, and the leads attractive and engaging. Plus, Six from Battlestar Galactica is a regular.
But I have to issue a warning about last night's episode. It was so awful, my wife described it as "like a '70s sitcom." That's pretty cold, but she was right.
So, unless you like an hour of characters describing their feelings to each other, including one who is literally the devil, you should avoid this one!
Lucifer gets a second chance. From The Hollywood Reporter: "'Lucifer' Reborn at Netflix After Fox Cancellation"
Good news! My wife is quite a fan, and I enjoy it as well-done, if mindless, entertainment.
All ten episodes of Lucifer season 4 dropped on Netflix today, May 8.
