LOS ANGELES, June 22 (UPI) -- Battlestar Galactica star Tricia Helfer is switching universes to play the devil's mother on Season 2 of Lucifer.
Fox announced its choice on Tuesday, TV Line reported.
Helfer will play the mother to Tom Ellis's devil and D.B. Woodside's character Amenadiel in the drama, which first introduced the character in April during the show's first season.
Lucifer's first season focused on issues between father and son, but will shift gears with Helfer's entree as the mother, focusing instead on issues between her and her sons, Variety reported.
"Charlotte," as the character is named, God's ex-wife, was trapped in hell for thousands of years, but now roams Earth.
According to the show's official description of her character, "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?"
Lucifer Season 2 begins Sept. 19 at 9 p..m.
