Brooklyn Nine-Nine is officially NOT cancelled as NBC swoops in it to save it
Everyone can officially calm down, everything is fine. It’s all good. You can stop complaining that Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been axed while Last Man Standing and Rick and Morty got renewed because that is no longer the case!
Barely a day after Fox cancelled the police sitcom, it was miraculously un-cancelled. Not by Netflix, not by Hulu, but by NBC.
Everyone’s new favourite network announced the news on Twitter, stating: “We got your SIX! #Brooklyn99 is officially coming to NBC!”
The official Twitter account for The Lonely Island (which is Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andy Samberg’s comedy music group) also shared the good news, thanking fans for showing their love for the show on social media:
“So happy to announce: NBC IS PICKING UP BROOKLYN 99 for SEASON 6!!!” the account wrote.
“Thank you to everyone for the crazy outpouring of support. It means the world to us. It wouldn’t have happened without you.”
NBC Entertainment’s Chairman Robert Greenblatt said in a statement (via Entertainment Weekly): “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.
“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!”
The stars of the series also took to Twitter to share their excitement and to thank fans for their overwhelming support after the initial cancellation news broke.
“#Brooklyn99 IS COMING BACK FOR SEASON 6 YOU GUYS ON NBC!!!!!” Melissa Fumero, who plays Amy Santiago, wrote. “You did this!! You got loud and you were heard and you saved our show!! Thank you!! Thank you to NBC!! NINE NINE!!!!!”
With the show staying on broadcast television and not moving to an online service, there’s a better chance of it staying on E4 in the UK, right? Let’s hope so, we think they’re a good home for it.
Sadly for fans of Fox’s other cancelled sitcoms The Mick and Last Man on Earth, it doesn’t look like they are coming back.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine finishes its current run this Sunday (May 13) at 8.30pm ET on Fox in the US, before returning for a 13-episode order on NBC later this year.
