Another show’s fan base is calling for resurrection after cancellation.

Fox announced Friday that drama “Lucifer” is cancelled after three seasons, a decision that showrunner Joe Henderson said “f—ing hurts.”

“Heartbreaking doesn’t begin to describe,” he added.

Henderson encouraged fans to tweet with the hashtag #SaveLucifer, which started trending on the social media platform on Friday afternoon.

“By the way, the #Lucifer finale is the best hour of television I’ve been lucky to write,” he continued. “It wraps up everything from the season. But what it teases for Season 4… well, maybe, just maybe, we can #SaveLucifer and show you.”

Star Tom Ellis said he was “gutted” by the cancellation news, and said the Twitter app on his phone kept crashing because of the outpouring of support from fans.

Writer Ildy Modrovich echoed Ellis and Henderson, saying she was “heartbroken, shocked and devastated over the news” and chimed in with her support of the #SaveLucifer hashtag.

Star Lesley-Ann Brandt spoke up on social media, too.

“For the last 3 years I’ve had the privilege of working on Lucifer with some of the most incredible people in this industry,” she said in an Instagram post. “Being your Mazikeen has been so very special to me for so many reasons.”

For the last 3 years I’ve had the privilege of working on Lucifer with some of the most incredible people in this industry. We literally had a “no asshole” policy. I’ve grown up on this show. Married my husband during season 1, found out I was pregnant on season 2 and had my son season 3. Being your Mazikeen has been so very special to me for so many reasons. Playing this fiercely strong yet vulnerable, pansexual demon, has been my honor. To discover on a weekly basis, just how much a character like her, who looks like me, means to so many out there, has made my heart swell. I read your messages and fan mail and I’ve loved getting to know you as we tweet every Monday. I will miss that. To the fans, you’re incredible. Truly. You took us from a pilot to a series and a pick up not once, but three times. I’m incredibly sad we don’t get to give you another season because I truly feel there’s so much story left to tell. Thank you for your support, your constructive criticism and for giving us three wonderful years together. ???????? To my incredible cast mates, my family. I love each and everyone of you and while we will all go on to our next project, this time with you has been a career highlight for me. I started a family all while working and loving on my Lucifer family. I’ll be seeing you all…A LOT! Thank you for doing this dance with me and for being THE reason why guest stars loved working on our show. To our crew both in Vancouver and Los Angeles, thank you for all your hard work. For the daily laughs and for helping create the best set I’ve ever worked on. We are nothing without your hard work. To our writers, thank you for giving Mazikeen breath and life. For creating her world and for collaborating with me for 3 years. For indulging my ideas and giving me the freedom to bring her to life. To our producers, thank you for giving me a shot at a time when I’d been on the pilot auditioning hamster wheel for so long. I love Maze. She feels like a second skin to me and I sure will miss getting into those leather pants. Be sure to tune in on Monday. We weren’t done yet. Until next time. Always, LA x #cancelled
