We learned a few days ago that Season 2 of “Lucifer” begins on September 19th on Fox, and now we have a casting update to share with regard to who will be portraying the title character’s mother, who we learned at the end of Season 1 has escaped from Hell.
Per TVLine, Tricia Helfer (“Powers,” “Battlestar Galactica”) will portray “Charlotte,” Lucifer’s mother, who is described as follows: Trapped in Hell for thousands of years by God (her ex-husband), the Mother of Angels is now free on Earth. Once reunited with Lucifer (Tom Ellis), it will become clear that she’s the one he takes after. Mom is fearless and has a strong conviction for who she is and what she deserves. However, mother and son do not share the same opinion when it comes to humanity. Everything that fascinates Lucifer about people repels Mom — a disdain that’s highlighted by that fact that Mom’s trapped in a human body for her stay on Earth. Lucifer’s desperate to find out what Mom’s up to, but she claims that all she wants is to spend time with her sons again. But can the devil’s mom really be that innocent?
Helfer is set to appear in multiple episodes, beginning with the second season kickoff of “Lucifer” on Monday, September 19th.
