Brooklyn Nine-Nine saved by NBC

Brooklyn Nine-Nine saved by NBC

NBC proves to be a natural home for the series, though. Numerous stars thanked the fans who campaigned to save the show.

Even though NBC network has cancelled on a few shows, it has picked up Fox's Brooklyn Nine-Nine, starring Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher and Terry Crews for a sixth season that will consist of 13 episodes. However, Producer Universal Television had been in talks with Hulu to keep the series afloat, but the streaming service ultimately passed.

Creator Michael Schur also has close ties to NBC, having acted and served as Executive Producer on the network's U.S. version of The Office and creator of The Good Place.

"We jumped on it really quickly and are thrilled to have it and think it fits into our brand of comedy in many ways better than it fit into Fox's brand of comedy". "It feels like it goes along shows like A.P. Bio, Will & Grace, Superstore, and The Good Place". Greenblatt confirmed that this played a role in NBC's decision.

NBC noticed the love, and so did our experts in the TV category for the Fandom 250. "We were right there with them".

"We love it when the fans yell and scream", Greenblatt added.

A much more predictable cancellation than "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", Will Forte's irreverent apocalyptic comedy struggled to find an audience throughout its run but was a consistent critical hit that was most likely the reason it lasted this long. The network has trimmed down their primetime line-up significantly to make room for more sports coverage. 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).

As far as Fox network is concerned, Designated Survivor, Lucifer and The Exorcist were cancelled. Unlike ABC, NBC and CBS, Fox does not program the 10 p.m. hour, giving them less real estate to begin with.
