Lucifer is one of the most enjoyable shows on TV. Somehow, it manages to effortlessly balance mythology, police business, romantic intrigue, and (secret weapon) wickedly cheeky humor. Based on this new season three promo, we can expect even more of that when the show returns.

One highlight of the coming season looks to be the rivalry between Lucifer (Tom Ellis) and Lt. Marcus Pierce, a new character played by Tom Welling (Smallville). Pierce will be sticking his fingers into Lucifer’s sweet gig consulting for the LAPD—as well as potentially interfering with his complicated relationship with Detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German). We saw a similar dynamic between Lucifer and Dan (Kevin Alejandro) in season one, so we already know that Lucifer is at his funniest when he’s being continuously bedeviled (sorry) by an irritating mortal.

Lucifer returns to Fox on October 2.

Looks like Welling stayed in Smallville shape. Damn and he’s the almost the right age and look to play:

Damn you WB, JL better be good, because I want to see a Kingdom Come movie sometime in the next decade or so.
