Fox might have had fun cancelling fan-favorite shows this season, but other networks are enjoying the love that audiences are pouring upon them as they've come in to save their shows. Whether divinely or devilishly, Netflix has intervened to scoop up the wicked supernatural drama after Fox sent the show to an early afterlife following the end of its third season. The series, which was cancelled by Fox, has been picked up by Netflix. This is the second canceled show by Fox this spring to find a home at another outlet. Deadline reports that producers at Warner Bros.

"The cancellation news from the beginning of May gutted fans, who began a social media outcry for another network to save the series with the hashtag "#SaveLucifer", which landed as the No. 1 trending topic on Twitter for a short while. At the time of writing, it is unclear how many episodes Netflix has ordered for Season 4 or if the series will continue beyond that point.

Netflix wasn't alone in bidding for the show as Amazon was reportedly in conversations about saving the show as recently as last week.

Lucifer fans can finally start singing hallelujah once again.

And Netflix may not be done saving canceled shows as they remain in conversations to save the former ABC series Designated Survivor, which is a big hit among global Netflix members.

"Thank you thank you THANK YOU to all the #Lucifer fans", he wrote.

Alejandro said the cast had been blown away by the "overwhelming response" from fans, and that it "kind of showed that maybe the way numbers are calculated could be a bit old-fashioned".
