For five seasons, Brooklyn Nine-Nine has quietly molded itself into one of the sharpest, funniest comedies on television.
The cancellation means the Season 5 finale, which airs on May 20, will be the show's last episode.
Since the show started, it has become the second longest-running live-action comedy series the company has had on its listings, next to the now defunct New Girl, which also ends this month.
The wave of support for "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" has been overwhelming. The show's stars have been moved by the push to save "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", including Stephanie Beatriz (Detective Diaz), Melissa Fumero (Sergeant Santiago), Dirk Blocker (Detective Hitchcock), and Joe Lo Truglio (Detective Boyle), among others.
"The Last Man on Earth" has been canceled after four seasons at Fox, Variety has confirmed. We have the best fans. Fans of the show are distraught, to say the least, and immediately began voicing their sadness on Twitter. Just Wednesday night, Fumero urged fans to "get loud" about renewing the show.
Created by Daniel J. Goor and Michael Schur, Brooklyn Nine-Nine featured the antics of the cops of the 99th precinct of the New York Police Department. But it also had another factor working against it: NBC Universal, not Fox, owns the series, though there's a chance NBC could choose to save it for its own network or sell it to Hulu or Netflix.
Miranda revealed that the show is one of only four he now watches, while a sad (presumably, based on the crying and distraught emojis featured in his tweet) Hamill warned Fox, "When networks dump show I love, I'm known for holding grudges a long, L-O-N-G time".
