Porter has gone on to get roles in Battlestar Galactica spin-off Caprica, legal drama The Good Wife and Hart of Dixie, where he played the main character for four seasons.
He has most recently starred in Why Women Kill, which is currently airing on UKTV channel Alibi, and in Harley Quinn’s self-titled animated series, where he provided the voice of The Flash.
With star Tom Ellis recently teasing a potential Lucifer season five, part two launch date in late 2020 or early 2021, people are madly waiting for the next batch of episodes in the supernatural crime procedural.
