Brooklyn Nine-Nine was canceled by Fox on Thursday and fans of the cop comedy were definitely broken up about their favorite TV show getting dropped. The fans pleaded for the comedy to be renewed by another outlet such as Hulu and soon enough the beloved TV show was picked up by NBC. Despite relatively low ratings including the last episode having a very disappointing rating of 0.7 among adults 18-49, NBC decided to take a chance on the comedy with a devout following on social media.
NBC Universal picked up Brooklyn Nine-Nine for the show’s sixth season that will have 13 episodes. “Ever since we sold this show to Fox, I’ve regretted letting it get away, and it’s high time it came back to its rightful home,” NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said in a statement. “Mike Schur, Dan Goor and Andy Samberg grew up on NBC, and we’re all thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest, and best cast comedies in a long time will take its place in our comedy line-up. I speak for everyone at NBC, here’s to the Nine-Nine!”
BNN cast members Andy Samberg, Michael Schur, and Melissa Fumero thanked the fans for helping bring back the buddy-cop comedy.
Terry Crews personally thanked Luke Skywalker AKA Mark Hamill for helping save the show.
The show will end on Fox on May 20th where Jake (Samberg) will marry Amy (Fumero). You probably won’t get new Nine-Nine until 2019.
