'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Canceled; Fans, Stars Launch Effort to Save Show

Share

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is not returning for another season following news that Fox has canceled the comedy series after Season 5 because of its lack of viewership. Netflix is in the market for making great TV, and there's a great show on the market.

Both Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Mindy Project, which moved to Hulu after three seasons on Fox, are produced by Hulu corporate sibling Universal TV as well as 3 Arts Entertainment, so the companies have a deal template in place.

Sources told The Hollywood Reporter that, just hours after Fox announced the show's cancellation, multiple networks reached out to producers Universal Television. Following the characters involved and the rather unusual cases that they find themselves solving, the show gives audience members a humorous look into the workplace of the 99th precinct and the personal lives of all those involved. If Lin-Manuel Miranda wants the show on the air, he can snap his fingers like a reverse Thanos and make that happen, right?

Regardless of how things play out, people close to the show are optimistic that we have not seen the last of Detective Jake Peralta and the gang.

As feared, Fox has cancelled Brooklyn Nine-Nine after five seasons. Melissa Fumero, Stephanie Beatriz, Joe Lo Truglio, Dirk Blocker and Joel McKinnon Miller also star. The series has run for five seasons on Fox, but it was never a huge ratings hit, despite winning two Golden Globes, including Outstanding Comedy Series, in its freshman run.

The Mick, starring Always Sunny In Philadelphia's Kaitlin Olson as an irresponsible woman charged with looking after her niece and nephews, also struggled in the ratings and will not be renewed for a third season.

The series finale of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" will air May 20 at 8:30 on Fox.

Following the cancellation news, co-creator and executive Dan Goor takes to Twitter to thank fans for their "incredible outpouring of support".

The network revealed on Thursday (May 10) that they had made a decision to cancel the incredibly popular cop sitcom after five seasons.
