FOX Announces Lucifer Series Premiere Date


FOX's Lucifer will debut in January and benefit from one of the biggest lead-ins in TV: The X-Files.

The new drama starring Tom Ellis premieres Monday, January 25 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, after the time period premiere of The X-Files at 8 p.m.

Based upon the characters from DC Entertainment's Vertigo imprint, the series tells the story of Lucifer Morningstar (Ellis), the Lord of Hell, who has abandoned his throne and retired to L.A. When he is introduced to LAPD homicide detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German, "Chicago Fire"), Lucifer becomes intrigued by her compassion for humanity, which causes a struggle between his temptation toward the side of Good and his original calling toward Evil.
