Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Season Six; FOX & NBC Talk Cancellation & Revival

Adjust Comment Print

It's been a tense few days for Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans as news of its cancellation on Fox left the cult sitcom's story hanging at the end of the fifth season.

The star added, "Andy [Samberg] has been on "SNL" and it just makes so much sense and we fit in with their comedies".

Fox announced that it had canceled "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" last week and its fans quickly voiced their disapproval.

Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, said in a statement: "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 Gur and Andy Samberg grew up on NBC and we are very pleased that one of the smartest, funniest comedies of the last time with a wonderful cast will take its place in the grid of our broadcast.

Many Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans are rejoicing about NBC saving the show. "A lot of people went to bat for us like Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Hamill, Sean Astin".

Fox, which is carrying National Football League games on Thursday nights this fall, is saving the second season of Seth MacFarlane's "The Orville" and several other shows for midseason.

Around 15 people are killed after bomb blasts in Jalalabad
Earlier, health department officials in the city said hospitals had received at least four dead bodies and 20 wounded people. In Afghanistan, nine people were killed and more than thirty six injured in multiple blasts in Jalalabad on Sunday.

There's no word yet on when Brooklyn Nine-Nine will officially debut on its new network. We were right there with them. So hard, in fact, that I made sure to call every single NBC exec and tell them to go straight to hell.

"We love it even more when they watch the show".

The networks are saving most of their news shows for midseason, along with some returning series. In a twist over the weekend, NBC announced it would pick up the show for a sixth season.

NBC revoked the cancellation due to the public outcry of devoted fans who wanted more of the show. The show won two Golden Globes in its freshman season - for best comedy series and best actor in a comedy series (Samberg). "We knew there were conversations that were going on with other platforms and I'm really happy for the whole team".

A fan of all of these, I can see Fox's point here, but their additional comments are what really get past the exec-speak and into the real reasons why the series was canceled.

Tim Allen's "Last Man Standing", canceled past year by ABC, is being resurrected by Fox next season because it's a "great comedy" and not as a conservative statement, Fox executives said Monday.
