Lucifer: Season 1 (2016)


Season 1

Critics Consensus

Lucifer's got sex appeal, but the show's hackneyed cop procedural format undermines a potentially entertaining premise.

    Oof, that was Rotten.

    Meh, it passed the time.

    It’s good – I’d recommend it.

Tv Season Info

Bored with wasting time in the deepest pits of hell, Lucifer has abdicated and now resides here on Earth, indulging in all forms of guilty pleasures: women, wine and parties. But the most terrifying turn is yet to come when he finds himself developing the most spine-chilling human trait of them all - emotion.

Critic Reviews for Lucifer Season 1

All Critics (43) | Top Critics (16)

There's a lot of faux-coolness here; strip clubs where everyone has clothes on, a lot of snarky jokes met with "Oh you're just the devil," etc etc.

Jan 19, 2016 | Full Review…

This louche Lucifer is mostly a cop procedural snooze.

Jan 25, 2016 | Rating: C | Full Review…
Top Critic

We're left with a show that's as cheesy as it is ridiculously improbable.

Jan 25, 2016 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Welshman Tom Ellis plays the hell out of his lead role in Fox's Lucifer.

Jan 22, 2016 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
Top Critic

Protests have been heard against turning Lucifer into a good guy, but in fact, he's mainly just a smug jerk with a creepy smile. And as his reluctant sidekick, German is as bland as her counterparts on a lot of better shows.

Jan 26, 2016 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

[A]nother forgettable drama bound to be quickly lost in the excesses of the modern television landscape.

Feb 11, 2020 | Rating: 0.5/5 | Full Review…

Fox's Lucifer proves that despite their ubiquity, comic book adaptations far from a guaranteed success.

Oct 24, 2016 | Full Review…

Featuring the Devil in his most vanilla of forms, horror fans will be left wanting; Lucifer is disappointingly sparse on strong imagery.

Feb 27, 2019 | Full Review…

Tom Ellis brings devilish charm to Neil Gaiman's Lucifer, but the show's cop-drama spin is unappealing.

Feb 27, 2019 | Rating: 6.9/10 | Full Review…

I can admit that I wasn't a fan of the show in the beginning. But the Devil has a way of getting under your skin-and I'm definitely looking forward to another season of Lucifer.

Feb 27, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

You'd be better served to watch any of the other detective dramas to which I've compared the lifeless "Lucifer." Just heed my warning: Stay away from this mid-season mediocrity fest.

Dec 12, 2017 | Full Review…

Aside from the story itself, Lucifer's pilot stands out among the 2015-2016 premieres. The music is an absolute perfect fit for the show... The dialogue is snappy and wry, and Tom Ellis is absolutely delicious as Lucifer, Lord of Hell.

    Addicted movie when u start follow u cannot start 😂
  • Jan 25, 2020
    Is a great first season i see
  • Jan 21, 2020
    I love this show! It's addicting, binge-worthy, well written, has a fantastic soundtrack, the chemistry between the cast is genuine and real, you feel every emotion as it is portrayed, the story-lines grab your attention, it's witty, clever, full of plot twists, Tom Ellis is exceptional, no-one else could ever play this character like he does, it's filled with action-packed drama, it provides a good between fantasy and reality, it provides positive messages about redemption, relationships, and has good character development. Can't wait for Season 5! Wish we could have a Season 6, though! Don't want this story to end!

    Awesome show! Love me some Lucifer! @tomellis
  • Dec 22, 2019
    Loved it! cant wait for more!
  • Nov 21, 2019
    Nice serie in the beginning but after a certain time the British accent of Lucifer starts to irritate me. So fake. It starts to be very predictable. Luckily enough there are enough better series to watch.
  • Nov 05, 2019
    A worthwhile buy-in to get to know the characters for greater stories down the road.
  • Nov 05, 2019
    The story could have been more appealing...
  • Oct 24, 2019
    One of the best shows I have seen.
  • Oct 13, 2019
    Funny and interesting. Keeps you wanting more and thinking about each episode afterwards. Easy watching.
