In surprising/not surprising news, 3 Fox shows (The Last Man On Earth, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Mick) have not been picked up for new seasons. It's the only show left on FOX from an outside studio, in this case Universal TV.
While Brooklyn Nine-Nine was averaging a 1.2 in the 18-49 demo and 2.7 million viewers Sundays at 8:30, the lowest of the three cancelled shows, its numbers weren't far below those others and certainly weren't awful by today's scripted TV comedy standards.
So, who knows where the series will land next, but as long as everyone keeps trying to save the show, Gina Linetti won't be giving herself pep talks in the mirror.
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.
All hope is not lost for the series as The Hollywood Reporter's Lesley Goldberg tweeted that Hulu might be in talks to continue the series, along with other Fox cancelled series Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Melissa Fumero, Stephanie Beatriz, Joe Lo Truglio, Dirk Blocker and Joel McKinnon Miller also star. You could argue that the show might be starting to lose its lustre after five strong seasons and that perhaps Fox wanted to cancel the series while it is still on a high.
Following the cancellation news, co-creator and executive Dan Goor takes to Twitter to thank fans for their "incredible outpouring of support". Brooklyn Nine-Nine, on the other hand, was feeling like it was just hitting a new gear in terms of creativity.
After weeks of speculation, Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been cancelled after five seasons. That's a good number for any show, let alone a comedy about offbeat cops, Andre Braugher talking about how much he loved bountiful female bosoms, Die Hard references and Terry Crews' dancing pecs.
Fortunately, Brooklyn Nine-Nine reached the syndication milestone during its last season, when it aired its 100th episode.
