Great news, Lucifer fans: the show has officially been given a Season 3. Even better news: the season order from Fox is for a full 22 episodes. The news comes a couple of months before the show’s Season 2 hiatus end.
The renewal isn’t really a surprise, seeing how well it’s doing – though Lucifer has a lower profile and a drastically less glamorous budget than Warner Bros other DC show Gotham, Lucifer continues to match the latter’s performance.
