Forget saying goodbye -- after the "Lucifer" finale, fans are ready to raise hell.

Following Fox's surprise cancellation on May 11, the show's loyal viewers immediately started a push to save "Lucifer." Now, after the May 14 finale, it looks like they're only more motivated. They've been tweeting up a storm trying to get Fox to change its mind, another network or streaming service to step in, or even to inspire people to crowdfund for a movie.

Showrunner Joe Henderson had warned fans via Twitter on May 11 that the episode wasn't meant to be a conclusion. Apparently, they'd hoped setting up for another season would ensure the show's future.

"We created a season finale with a huge cliffhanger so that there was no way Fox could cancel us," he wrote. "Instead, we're going to frustrate the hell out of you fans. I'm so sorry for that."

Now that the finale has aired, though, Henderson has expressed a bit more hope that the show could have a future -- perhaps after seeing NBC save "Brooklyn Nine-Nine," which Fox also recently canceled. Following the finale, he tweeted, "Well, there you go. Our season finale, and the best case we can make for another season. Lots of story we'd love to tell, if we get the chance."

And fans are clamoring for "Lucifer" to get that chance. They've been busy making the case for another season on Twitter.

May the hell-raising pay off.
