Where the hell is Lucifer? 'Mum' is gone, but Charlotte lives? Those answers and more!

According to a release, Welling will play Marcus Pierce, "an accomplished police lieutenant who is everything Lucifer (Tom Ellis) is not – strategic, reserved and well-respected." He'll also develop a connection with Decker, which Lucifer will be none too pleased about.
