The news of Smallville’s Tom Welling joining the cast of Lucifer wasn’t the only awesome thing coming out of this weekend’s San Diego Comic-Con. Fox has also released the first trailer for the show’s upcoming third season.
Which includes our boy Luci (Tom Ellis) totally channelling Saturday Night Fever's Tony Manero (John Travolta), white suit and all. Set to premiere on Oct. 2, the start of Season 3 will explore how the Lord of Hell got his
mojo wings back as seen in the jaw-dropping Season 2 finale.
Technically, the first four episodes are actually the final four episodes of the show’s sophomore season. Those episodes were originally meant to air last season, but the network decided to bump the short, self-contained mini arc to the start of Season 3, since Season 2 was originally conceived as an 18-episode arc and that break felt like a good place to end the season.
As for Welling, he'll play a cop named Marcus Pierce, who’s described as an “accomplished police lieutenant who is everything Lucifer is not” and is meant to be Chloe Decker’s (Lauren German) new love interest.
Check out the Season 3 trailer, and let us know if you’re looking forward to a hellish new season of the DC Comics adaptation.
