Brooklyn Nine-Nine saved from cancellation after massive fan uproar

The Mick Cancelled by FOX
'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Cancellation Has Furious Fans Screaming 'Not Cool' at Fox

12 May, 2018

Distraught fans are posting all over social media to try and save the show. Fans, including celebrities from all over the film and TV worlds, have proclaimed their love for the show and their fervent hope that another network or streaming service would pick up the show.

The news of the show's cancellation stings that much more with the adjoining announcement that the previously canceled ABC series Last Man Standing, a conservative-leaning family comedy from Tim Allen, has been picked up by Fox a full year after it was canceled. The show's return will be for a shorter time than past seasons - 13 episodes rather than 22, but it will indeed be back in 2018-19. "Mike Schur [and] Dan Goor ['Nine-Nine's' creators] 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 lineup".

The news broke late Friday night.

He said: "It's NINE o'clock and the NINE NINE is now on NBC".

Co-creator Goor tweeted, "Hey everyone, just wanted to say no big deal but..." "#Brooklyn99 IS COMING BACK FOR SEASON 6 YOU GUYS ON NBC!" But one of those shows has been saved. The season 5 finale - which centers on the wedding of Jake (Samberg) and Amy (Melissa Fumero) - airs May 20.

The cast members of the show also announced the news on their personal Twitter handles. "Brooklyn Nine-Nine is gonna have a season six on NBC". "Thanks in no small part to you, the best fans in the history of the world!"
