TV shopped the show around, and Netflix ended up winning the rights. Deadline reports that producers at Warner Bros.

Now, the series creator is overjoyed to be able to bring the show back.

The streaming giant will produce Lucifer's fourth season.

"Lucifer" isn't dead after all: After being canceled by FOX in May, the show has been given a new life on Netflix.

From the moment Fox made a decision to cancel the series, fans have been championing a massive #SaveLucifer campaign, hoping to get the series picked up by another network or streaming site, and though cancellations in general aren't quite as permanent as they used to be, it was still a total Hail Mary to think they'd succeed. One of the factors that complicated things was the fact that Hulu controlled the SVOD rights to "Lucifer".

Showrunner Joe Henderson weighed in with a big thank you to Lucifer fans.

The series stars Tom Ellis as Lucifer Morningstar, Lord of Hell, who helps the LAPD track down criminals on Earth.

There had been hope for U.S. network The CW - which is home to several comic book series - to pick up the show, but the network bosses dismissed the claims, adding there's been "no discussions" about any revival.

'Thank you thank you THANK YOU to all the #Lucifer fans.
