“Lucifer” fans, rejoice! Netflix has saved the series from cancellation.
The streamer has picked up a fourth season of the series, just over a month after it was canceled by Fox. No details, including a release date or episode count, have been released.
After Fox axed the series back in May, fans launched a campaign to have the show saved by another outlet using the hashtag #SaveLucifer, and producers Warner Bros. Television actively began searching for a new distributor for the show.
“Thank you thank you THANK YOU to all the #Lucifer fans,” series creator Joe Henderson wrote on Twitter after the news was announced. “You brought us back. YOU did this. So relax, take a breath, put some ice on those fingers that have been hashtagging up a storm… and get ready for more deviltime.”

Produced by WBTV in association with Jerry Bruckheimer Television, Lucifer stars Tom Ellis in an adaptation of a character from Neil Gaiman, Sam Kieth and Mike Dringenberg’s “The Sandman” comic book series at DC’s Vertigo imprint.
Executive producers on the show include Bruckheimer, Jonathan Littman, Joe Henderson, Ildy Modrovich, Sheri Elwood and KristieAnne Reed.
“Lucifer” marks the second broadcast show to be rescued this season, after NBC announced it would revive “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” last month. The Syfy series “The Expanse” was also rescued by Amazon after fan outcry over its cancellation.
