Brooklyn Nine-Nine saved after outcry from fans over its cancellation

Now, the season five finale - which focuses on the wedding of Jake (Andy Samberg) and Amy (Melissa Fumero) - will serve as the series finale as well.

The fifth season ending on 20 may 2018. Depending on how the show does next year, it's not unreasonable that NBC would continue to renew Brooklyn Nine-Nine following that. They mourned, and they tweeted and they let it be known that this show has a formidable following.

On the call, TheWrap asked Greenblatt if he is looking at the upcoming 13-episode Season 6 as a proper sendoff, or if there are hopes the show goes on for many more years.


To soothe the sting from these burns, Hulu has every episode of "The Last Man on Earth" available to watch right now, so you can laugh and cry at the the same time. Saturday evenings are reserved for Dateline Saturday Night Mystery and back-to-back showings of Saturday Night Live, with Sunday dedicated to football (Football Night in America and Sunday Night Football). It did so well and it certainly did remind us that we have a huge iconic comedy star in our fox family in Tim Allen.

"Ultimately we felt we did not have the exact right place to schedule", the show having performed best on Sunday, where Fox made a decision to give animated Bob's Burgers the plum time period and "chance to grow". "He and Jerrod produced a really amusing and appealing pilot, and we thought our Sunday night, young, somewhat male-leaning audience would be a great opportunity for it".

We'll say: "Brooklyn" was canceled by Fox on Thursday.


"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" is produced by NBCUniversal's studio, Universal Television. Unfortunately, they were unsuccessful this year, and the show finally got the ax.

The network and producers went to last-minute extremes to keep "Lethal Weapon" in the lineup, bringing Seann William Scott ("American Pie") onboard to co-star with Damon Wayans.

"Weapon" is undergoing a significant change, with star Clayne Crawford replaced after on-set conflicts.


The network's schedule is its first since parent company 21st Century Fox announced that it would sell its TV and movie production assets to the Walt Disney Co. Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long and Michael Strahan will host the pregame show.
