If we’re being perfectly honest, we’re in complete denial about Lucifer’s cancellation by FOX.
In our minds, the show will return, somewhere, and some place in time, revealing the intriguing aftermath of Chloe’s reaction to Luci’s devil face, Dan’s grief, the rekindling of Maze and Linda’s friendship, and Amenadiel’s return from heaven.
However, with FOX not about to budge from its ‘still cancelled’ position any time soon, and news of another network or streamer picking up the show as yet nothing more than hopeful whispers, we may have to content ourselves (for now) with two bonus episodes that FOX is set to air on Monday May 28.
Titled “Boo Normal” and “Once Upon a Time” the episodes were originally a couple of stand alone installments that didn’t make it into this season’s roster.
“Once Upon a Time” also guest stars recent ScreenSpy interviewee Louis Herthum as Chloe’s Dad, Lt. John Decker. Louis had lovely things to say about working with Tom, Lauren and the rest of the cast during his (mostly) Westworld related chat earlier this month.
Catch loglines and air dates along with a gallery of official photos for both episodes below.
And yes, we know what you’re thinking because we’re thinking it too, but consider this: a big ratings spike may be the best way to let another network know how wanted this show really is.
ELLA IS HIDING A BIG SECRET & LUCIFER’S LIFE IS DRASTICALLY DIFFERENT
As Lucifer and the team investigate the murder of a child psychiatrist, Ella thinks about a big childhood secret that she’s been hiding. Then, after Lucifer’s mom creates an alternate dimension, Lucifer now lives in a world where he not only has never met Chloe, but is granted the freedom of choice.
