Adjust Comment Print

Brooklyn Nine-Nine's fans have touted how progressive the show is with its diverse cast, openly gay characters in leadership positions, and hasn't been afraid to bring up topics having to do with racial profiling and police brutality despite being a show about detectives. The show's abrupt cancellation had upset the series' fans.

Fans of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" were stunned when Fox announced they were cancelling it along with fellow comedies "The Mick" and "The Last Man on Earth". And some very famous ones. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Universal Television (which produced Brooklyn Nine-Nine) has already fielded calls from Hulu, Netflix, TBS and NBC regarding the show.

What is it about really clever shows that just get cancelled - Arrested Development, Community, Firefly etc?

The sixth season will consist of 13 episodes. "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".

Co-creator Goor tweeted, "Hey everyone, just wanted to say no big deal but..."

NBC, whose sister studio Universal TV produces the Andy Samberg-starring series, was one of the potential homes for the comedy after its cancellation. "#Brooklyn99 IS COMING BACK FOR SEASON 6 YOU GUYS ON NBC!" Thank you to NBC for giving us the opportunity to finish this special show!

Melissa Fumero, who plays Amy Santiago on the show, shared a GIF as well. You got loud and you were heard and we are forever grateful to you for doing so!

But "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", which stars Andy Samberg, Andre Baugher, Terry Crews, and Chelsea Peretti as cops in Brooklyn, New York, could see still new life on another network or streaming service for its sixth season.
