Lucifer is getting a second life.

Netflix is reviving the canceled Fox drama for a fourth season. The DC Entertainment series, which hails from Warner Bros. Television, was axed in March after three seasons on the air.

It's not the first time the streaming giant has picked up a canceled show from the Time Warner-owned company. Netflix previously revived Warner Horizon's Longmire after A&E had canceled it. The two companies are also in business together on Sabrina and the Riverdale offshoot. And Lucifer is the latest Fox series to be revived elsewhere this season, joining Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which moved to NBC.

On Fox, Lucifer averaged a 1.4 in the demo and 5 million total viewers with seven days of DVR. The drama's cancellation set off an outpouring from fans on social media. Tom Ellis, the show's star, wrote on Twitter following the cancellation: "It fills me with great sadness to confirm the rumours that some of you have been asking. Fox has indeed cancelled #lucifer I’m so sorry guys. #gutted"
