May 11th, 2018

Have you heard the news? Fox just cancelled the comedy show Brooklyn Nine-Nine after only five seasons. The show, led by Andy Samberg, Terry Crews, and Andre Braugher, earned two Golden Globe awards in its inaugural season for Best TV Series – Comedy or Musical and Best Actor in a Comedy for Samberg.

After the news broke out, members of the cast took to social media to offer heartfelt words of gratitude:

I am still processing… don’t have all the words.. but.. These last 5 years have been incredible. Thank you for all your love and support. We have the best fans. It’s been a huge honor to play Amy and be a part of this tremendous ensemble. NINE NINE! #Brooklyn99 pic.twitter.com/nmBFA2rm6I

Brooklyn 99, a diverse, inoffensive, and truly hilarious show with a group of characters that genuinely love and care for each other. Why the hell is it being cancelled?

If nothing else, I hope every producer, writer, actor, crew member, etc who worked on Brooklyn Nine-Nine looks at Twitter today and sees how DEEPLY loved their show is, and that the work they’ve been doing had an impact. It means a lot to a lot of people. It’s taken over my TL.

i really adore brooklyn nine-nine. i am grateful for its intersectional representation of queer people and people of color, the casual ways it addresses and deconstructs masculinity and institutional oppression, and its inclusive humor. and all in a network show!! #saveb99

To the cast of #Brooklyn99 I’m sorry. You guys all deserved better 💓 pic.twitter.com/u8GOCVGiFV

And a lot of people are calling for other companies like Netflix to swoop in and save the cop comedy:

HELLO @NETFLIX WE WANT BROOKLYN NINE NINE TO LIVE ON THANK YOU FOR FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION

— Aminatou Sow (@aminatou) May 10, 2018

I really really really hope #Brooklyn99 continues somewhere and for that matter that each episode should be hand-delivered on DVD to every American IT'S THAT GOOD PEOPLE #RenewB99

It looks like the show could have another life somewhere else, as multiple companies have allegedly expressed interest in picking it up. According to The Hollywood Reporter, show producer Universal Studios have reportedly received calls from Hulu, Netflix, NBC, and TBS.
