Noice!: ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Saved, Cast and Fans React

FOX

Celebrations are in order!

Just a day after the devastating cancellation of much-loved comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the show has been saved and picked up for a 13-episode sixth season.

Fans and celebrity fans alike took to social media the second it was announced that Fox was pulling the plug on the Andy Samberg-starring series. With hashtags such as #SaveB99 and #RenewB99 soon trending, the outcry by the show’s many fans was deafening, ensuring other studios had to sit up and take notice. Indeed, a mere few hours after the horrible news came through came word that NBC, Netflix, Hulu and TBS had expressed interest in picking up the show.

NBC won. According to Variety, Hulu entered talks with producer Universal Television to take on the show, but ended up passing, which then opened the door for Universal TV’s sister studio to come in and save the day.

“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,” Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, said in a statement.

“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!”

Brooklyn Nine-Nine co-creator Dan Goor took to Twitter to thank the fans for helping the show find new life:
