According to Deadline, actress Tricia Helfer has joined the cast as Lucifer’s Mom, in Lucifer‘s Second season. Helfer will star in a recurring role.
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, 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?
“The biggest question is going to be, ‘Who is Mom?’,” Lucifer showrunner Joe Henderson said in an interview with TVLine. “We’re excited to figure out who we’re going to cast because we think it’s going to be a big, cool, meaty role for someone. Season 1 was the story of a wayward son dealing with his father issues; Season 2 is Mom.”
Tricia Helfer is known for her roles in ‘Battlestar Galactica’ and ‘Ascension’.
Lucifer is set to return on Monday, September 19 at 9:00pm on Fox
