“Lucifer” season 3 will now air in the UK. FOX Network has picked up the show after its massive popularity in the US.

FOX has not only acquired the rights to air the next season in the UK, it also acquired the rights for the first two seasons that will air in the country before season 3 starts, according to Digital Spy. Viewers will be able to start watching the show starting Aug. 31.

"‘Lucifer’ is ridiculously entertaining; part supernatural drama, part police procedural, part dark comedy; the series takes everything we think we know about the world's greatest villain and flips it upside down," Fox Networks UK entertainment president Toby Etheridge announced.

The TV series tells the tale of the Fallen Angel Morningstar (Tom Ellis) arriving on Earth and living in Los Angeles. There, he teams up with a detective to solve crimes. The fantasy element mainly focused on his fight against his father is the main story arc of the show.

Next season will begin right where season 2 left off. Morningstar has grown back his wings, and he doesn’t know why. While the devil tries to deal with this new addition to his body, he will have to face a new arch-nemesis.

“Smallville” star Tom Welling will be playing the new antagonist: police lieutenant Marcus Pierce. Morningstar is in love with detective Chloe (Lauren German), but their relationship at the moment is complicated. The new character also has a crush on the detective, and he will compete with the devil for her affection. “Lucifer” season 3 airs on Oct. 2 in the US. The show airs on FX in Australia.
