The Wait For More 'Lucifer' Will Be A Long One

Michael Courtney/FOX

After watching the Jan. 30 episode of Lucifer, fans may start to feel like they've been cursed by the devil himself. That's because after it airs its winter finale, "A Good Day To Die," Lucifer Season 2 won't return with more of Tom Ellis' deliciously bad and charming Beelzebub for a while. The good news is, though there will be a long wait, it's definitely coming back. The bad news is, I'm not exaggerating when I say long — Lucifer will come back on May 1, 2017. Yes, that's three months without Lucifer. Or Maze. Or Chloe. See? I told you it was going to feel like a curse.

To be fair, this break in programming isn't exactly abnormal, especially when it comes to midseason shows. And since Lucifer Season 2 will have 22 episodes, as reported by TVLine, there will be nine more episodes upon its return this spring. It's just going to be sorely missed in the meantime, because it's such a fun show, fans will totally feel its absence when it's not on the air. A big part of that is the actors, who are excellent in their roles and blend so well with each other. So while we await Lucifer's return, here's where you can find these actors in other projects (when you're not too busy marathoning old episodes, obviously.)

Tom Ellis

Michael Courtney/FOX

Lucifer is the first big mainstream role for the Wales actor, but that doesn't mean you can't find him elsewhere. If you haven't seen the British TV series Miranda (and if you haven't, what are you waiting for?!), you're in for a treat. You can also catch him in the 2011 miniseries The Fades.

Lauren German

Michael Courtney/FOX

From 2012-2015, German was a regular on Chicago Fire. She also guest starred in many episodes of Hawaii Five-0 Season 2.

Kevin Alejandro

Michael Courtney/FOX

If you don't already know Alejandro from The Returned, you should check him out. He also starred as Sebastian Blood on Arrow during its second season. And if you like him as a cop, you can find him playing similar roles in True Blood and Southland.

D.B. Woodside

Michael Courtney/FOX

Before Woodside was playing Lucifer's brother, he was starring in the USA drama Suits as Jeff Malone. He also had a recurring role on Parenthood, which you should watch anyway because... well, it's Parenthood.

Lesley-Ann Brandt

Michael Courtney/FOX

Check out The Librarians, TNT's smart sci-fi drama, which Brandt starred in during multiple episodes in the first season. For a version of Brandt that's more like Maze, you can also find her in Spartacus.

Tricia Helfer

Michael Courtney/FOX

If you don't know Tricia Helfer's Caprica from Battlestar Galactica, well, I can't help you, except to tell you to watch it immediately.

Rachael Harris

Michael Courtney/FOX

Like Woodside, Harris also guested on Suits for a few years. But if you want more of her comedy side, check out her role as Tanya on New Girl in its second season.

Our patience will certainly be tested as we wait for Lucifer's return, but hopefully, these projects will help us get through the long hiatus.
