Lucifer returns! The timing is just perfect because we clearly need more positive role models on television. I mean really, have you taken a gander at this current election? Even he would wash his hands of that fiasco. It’s clearly not his jam. If you enjoyed the first season, get ready for a deeper, darker, and cleverly intense second season. Lucifer needs to be your go to show when you just need to take a dip in a cascading pool of emotions. I’m sure that cheeky soul searcher will be nearby with a towel. Seriously, you have to love a show that knows exactly what it is and gives the audience exactly what it desires—a brilliantly fun and enlightening experience. Don’t miss the season two premiere of Lucifer, which airs Monday night at 9/8c on FOX.

In the season one finale, we witnessed the amazing fighting skills of Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis) and Amenadiel (D.B. Woodside). Malcolm Graham (Kevin Rankin) stabbed Amenadiel with a blade not of this world and Mazikeen (Lesley-Ann Brandt) saved him. Linda Martin (Rachel Harris) wonders if therapy is helping Lucifer because everything is a joke to him. Detective “Douche” Dan Espinoza (Kevin Alejandro) surprised everyone when he admitted that he helped frame Lucifer. Malcolm upped his game and kidnapped Trixie (Scarlett Estevez). Detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German) put everything on the line to save her daughter. Lucifer paid the ultimate price when he stepped in to help her. Lucifer is saved and comes back afraid because his mother has escaped from hell. “What could possibly go wrong?”

Season two opens with a different question, “What do you want?” Lucifer and Amenadiel think they have it all figured out, but something is amiss. What could it be? Lucifer’s mischievous side is what makes the show for me. I just can’t get enough of his sarcasm and the way he says garage. The writers need to add that to every episode. Things become so much clearer during Lucifer’s therapy session.

As you can imagine, Chloe has questions. She did witness Lucifer getting shot. Things are never what they seem and she wants to get to the bottom of that. Lucifer never hides who or what he is, but that just doesn’t make sense to her. How can you comprehend that? Will that change this season?

LUCIFER: L-R: Aimee Garcia, Tom Elis and Lauren German in ÒEverythingÕs Coming Up LuciferÓ season premiere episode of LUCIFER airing Monday, Sept. 19 (9:01-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX ©2016 Fox Broadcasting Co. Cr: Michael Courtney/FOX.

Ella Lopez (Aimee Garcia), the department’s new forensic scientist, piques Lucifer’s interest. There is a bit of understanding between the two. Aimee is a wonderful addition to the cast. She was one of my favorite characters in Dexter.

Lucifer’s preoccupation with his mother’s return leads to some of the most vulnerable moments so far. You get a deeper understanding of what’s behind his eyes. I think that’s a beautiful thing and I’m sure it will make the season even stronger. Speaking of strength, just wait until you see how strong that lady is towards the end. Damn, Lucifer! I found myself cheering him on.

They could not have cast someone better than Tricia Helfer to play Lucifer’s mom. She’s a phenomenal actress and fits the role perfectly. I’m really looking forward to her storyline this season.

I just wanted to give you a few premiere tidbits, so yada yada yada watch it on Monday. You will not be disappointed. Don’t even get me started on the amazing soundtrack and the brilliance that is Tom Ellis. Lucifer continues to impress, so don’t miss the premiere.

Lucifer premieres Monday, September 19 at 9/8c on FOX.
