Good news you little devils! FOX has a special treat in store for Lucifer and on Halloween no less! The network has given the devilish series a back-nine order to the sophomore drama, bringing it to a full 22-episode season.

Lucifer continues to deliver, with great blasts of dark humor and ambitious storytelling. The show has turned out to be a true wicked pleasure, the perfect companion to Gotham, and we couldn’t be more pleased to order these nine additional episodes,” said Madden. “We’d like to thank Tom, Lauren and the entire cast, who have imbued these characters with charm, humor and a great deal of humanity. Our thanks also go out to the production crew – Jerry, Len, Jonathan, Joe and Ildy – who, week-in and week-out, deliver a stellar show. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for the rest of the season.”

Quantico is ABC’s first freshman drama to receive a full-season order and follows NBC’s Blindspot which received its back-nine earlier last week.
