Some details of season 3 were revealed at the Lucifer panel at San Diego Comic-Con. Smallville’s Clark Kent is returning to TV. Tom Welling has been cast for a series regular role on Lucifer.
As per TV Line’s description, this is what we can expect from Welling’s character:
“When the supernatural-tinged procedural returns for Season 3, Welling will play Marcus Pierce, an accomplished police lieutenant who is strategic, reserved and well-respected — that is, everything Lucifer is not. But perhaps even more annoying are all the things the gents have in common, both being charming, charismatic and “handsome as hell.”
As you can imagine, when Pierce starts developing a “connection” with fellow detective Chloe Decker, Lucifer’s devilish traits are inflamed.”
Tom Welling hasn’t been on TV since Smallville ended in 2011. His more recent credits include Parkland (2013), Draft Day (2014) and The Choice (2016)
Lucifer returns October 2nd at 8/7c on FOX
