Brooklyn Nine-Nine Eyed by Several Networks Following Fox Cancellation

There's hope yet, Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans! Or at least taken over by Netflix so my boy Andy Samberg can still write.

The Lord of the Rings actor Sean Astin told fans he didn't want it to be cancelled, and explained, "I love all of those people & they earned the right 2 have a final season victory lap where I could emotionally prepare". Time for @netflix to step up and produce it themselves'.

Usually I would make mention of "jumping the shark" here, as shows which resolve their characters' long-running sexual tension tend to take a nosedive in quality, but Brooklyn Nine-Nine - to give very due credit - had avoided that fate admirably. It failed to drew wide audiences mostly because of its regular scheduling moves between Sunday and Tuesday.

Saying goodbye to a well-liked show is never fun, but it's important to remember that five seasons and 100-plus episodes is an impressive run for a niche offering, especially in today's crowded era of Peak TV. Well, The Powers That Be listened closely, and reports came out last night saying the comedy already had a few potential saviors.

However, this didn't seem to be the case on Thursday, with loyal viewers immediately taking to social media to share their disappointment.

"While done at Fox, Brooklyn Nine-Nine may not be gone altogether".

If Twitter history has taught us anything, it's never to doubt the power of collective online ranting and pleas, because several streaming giants are reportedly listened to the despondent fans, according to outcome of Sound.

Fox has cancelled the comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine and fans are not happy. Thank you all for this incredible outpouring of support. Sources also say there has been discussion about Kaitlin Olson comedy The Mick and possibly Will Forte's Last Man on Earth finding new homes elsewhere.

Having syndicated episodes on TBS has certainly helped the stock for "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" this year. Hulu has a prior relationship with Universal TV, which also owns The Mindy Project, another show that Hulu saved from Fox's scrap heap.
