Hell has descended upon Comic-Con in San Diego (SDCC). It isn’t in the purgatory of the Hall H line, but at the pilot screening and panel for the new Fox show “Lucifer,” based on the character from Vertigo Comics. The stars and a few members of the creative team traveled out to SDCC 2015 to introduce their new show coming to Fox in 2016.

Attending the “Lucifer” panel was star Tom Ellis, D.B. Woodside, Lesley-Ann Brandt, Lauren German with producer Len Wiseman and showrunner Joe Henderson. The new Fox show will follow Lucifer Morningstar as he “retires” to run a club in L.A. After a murder awakens feelings within, Lucifer is thrown into a tailspin about what to do with his earthly stay.

Check out the six things we learned at the “Lucifer” SDCC 2015 panel today:


1. Witty Dialog Goes A Long Way
Looks like “Lucifer” wasted no mortal time warming the crowd up at Comic-Con. Inspired by the character created by Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg, it’s good to hear the showrunners have opted to keep Lucifer’s devilish charm intact.




2. Watch Out, World. Ellis Is Bringing The Charm
The former “Merlin” actor described Lucifer Morningstar with a very interesting analogy.


3. After A Murder In The Pilot, Detective Chloe Dancer Becomes A Big Part Of Story
The LAPD homicide detective was described as someone who can see Lucifer for who he really is. Plus, are fans already shipping these two together? The show hasn’t even started yet!

4. What Should Fans Expect From Season 1?
The main theme of the story arc is going to be about making good, which one must imagine is a lot of catch-up work to do when you’re the devil himself. Showrunner Hunderson hinted (via The Hollywood Reporter) that the story will focus on the earthbound characters more so than the other “Sandman” worlds. "We're just whittling it down to the most human and grounded versions of it."

5. Author Neil Gaiman Enjoyed The Fanfare From Afar
Although not as directly involved with this adaptation of his character Lucifer, the bestselling author tweeted his approval over the boom of positive words about the pilot.


6. Rad Swag
Devilishly good-looking bags that make your Comic-Con purchases and giveaways all the easier to carry. Actually, that sounds pretty heavenly.



“Lucifer” premieres on Fox in January 2016. Until then, check out the trailer below:
