There’s no doubt Season 2 of “Lucifer” featured a roller coaster of a story arc with Lucifer’s mom entering the picture, not to mention his ongoing romantic dance with Chloe Decker.
The hit Fox series, which follows Lucifer (Tom Ellis) as he leaves hell and takes up residence in Los Angeles, has really come into its own this season, capitalizing on the mix of drama and comedy. Now, with only a few episodes left of Season 2, Ellis says fans can expect a few more twists and turns, including a possible visit from his dad.
Ellis told HuffPost during a Build Series segment that the episode titled “God Johnson,” which is slated to air Monday, is one of his favorites so far.
“Lucifer is absolutely convinced that his dad has come down to Earth,” Ellis said. “And that opens up a new side of things. As a stand-alone episode, I think that’s a really good episode.”
The following episodes will focus on Lucifer’s mom, Charlotte (Tricia Helfer).
“Our final two episodes of this season, it’s all about mom’s plan to get back to Heaven and taking her sons with her and how that kind of unravels. And then the very, very end of this season, Lucifer is in for a bit of a shock,” he said.
Though he didn’t dish on what that shock might entail, Ellis did open up about his character’s relationship with Chloe Decker, played by Lauren German.
“These two characters can be more themselves with each other than anyone else,” he said, adding, “Ultimately, this love story that’s going on is very much the heartbeat of the show. But if we were to get our two characters together in Season 2, then I don’t know if we’d have much of a show anymore to be honest. I think when you’re thinking about the longevity of a TV show, you’ve got to nurture those relationships … You really want them to get together. But you have to find valid reasons as to why they can’t yet.”
Luckily for fans, Fox picked up “Lucifer” for a third season, so there’s plenty of time to explore Lucifer and Chloe’s love story.
“Lucifer” airs Mondays at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
