The first season of FOX series Lucifer introduced the Lord of Hell (Tom Ellis) as a suave, hedonistic playboy taking a permanent holiday as a night club owner in Los Angeles. He's continually urged to return to his neglected underworld duties by both his demon BFF Maze (Lesley-Ann Brandt), and angel Amenadiel (DB Woodside).
It's not all fun and games for the devil, however. After witnessing a murder, Lucifer teams up with LAPD detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German), using his seductive powers to easily lure the truth out of suspects. He quickly forms an unexpected attachment to Chloe, one that makes him reconsider some of his wicked ways -- as well as rendering him mortal.
That mortality led to a trip straight back to Hell in the season 1 finale. In a highlight reel shown to attendees at Comic-Con International in San Diego, fans were reminded how Lucifer's trip was short-lived, thanks to Lucifer's mother (Tricia Helfer) leaving the gate open after she herself escaped. The video, which you can watch above, also shows some snippets of action from season 2, including Luci's reaction to seeing his dear old mum again.
Aside from the expected scenes of L.A. violence, therapist Linda Martin ( Rachael Harris) exploring the devil's mommy issues, and Lucifer making inappropriate innuendos to Chloe, it looks like season 2 will be dropping some bombshells on the characters. There's suspicion that Maze may be the one who let Mom out of Hell, and Chloe may finally hear the "truth about Lucifer" from Amenadiel.
Though we don't yet get a good look at Helfer as the recent escapee from Hell, we do see Lucifer's terrified reaction. There's not much, other than his inconvenient mortality, that scares the devil, so it should be fun to see how bad the Mother of Angels really can be. Season 1 of Lucifer was an entertaining guilty pleasure for fans, and it looks like season 2 will up the stakes on that winning formula of humor, action, and drama.
Lucifer season 2 premieres on FOX on Monday, September 19, at 9pm.
