Lucifer fans are eagerly waiting for the return of Lucifer Morningstar (played by Tom Ellis) but some impatient viewers have turned to old episodes while they wait. After watching the first ever instalment of the hit supernatural drama, some fans have spotted their favourite devil has undergone a huge transformation over the seasons.

Lucifer was first brought to our screens by Fox but the broadcaster dropped the series after three seasons before Netflix picked it up. 

The pilot episode introduced viewers to Tom as the devil who abandons Hell for Los Angeles where he runs his own nightclub.

He later meets detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German) and becomes an LAPD consultant but this is a far cry from the cheekily sinister character shown in the pilot. 

After going back and watching the first episode, one fan took to Reddit to share their thoughts on a huge difference they’d spotted.

Reddit user B_yanyan said: “I was rewatching the pilot episode and noticed that Lucifer was wearing a leather jacket instead of a suit. 

“So rare of him to do this because the only time we saw him dress casually was when he impersonates Chloe and Dan, goes undercover with peirce, or when he pretends to be a bad boyfriend.”

One fan suggested: “I think they were still trying to figure out his style and people automatically assume black leather jacket equals bad a**/bad boy. Suits fit him better.”

“It always makes me feel slightly uncomfortable seeing Tom Ellis in casual clothes (i.e. Interviews and stuff) because I’m so used to seeing the suits,” someone else shared. 

Another echoed: “Whenever I look at Tom Ellis’ Instagram page I’m like ‘What the fuck happened to Lucifer, is he alright?’”

Others fans picked up on another major change to the title character in the series pilot. 

One said: “He also has a completely different accent in this episode vs later. He kind of settled into his accent about halfway into series one.”

Another agreed: “I get what ya mean. I always thought it was like he was hoarse or congested the way he sounded in the pilot.”
