Save "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" campaign heats up as fans reject cancellation

The Mick Renewed

From its diverse casting to its handling of LGBT storylines, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" did an incredible job of making its fans feel seen.

It was revealed on Thursday that the beloved American police sitcom had been axed by FOX after just five seasons.

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" stars Andy Samberg, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Joe Lo Truglio, Andre Braugher, Chelsea Peretti and Stephanie Beatriz.

The Backstreet Boys shared a video clip from the series and thanked it for the memories, alongside a crying face emoji, while talk show host Seth Meyers called it a great show with "hilarious writing" and praised the ensemble cast.

"One person exclaimed: "@netflix @hulu someday renew this show.

Despite this devoted fanbase, Brooklyn Nine-Nine was on thin ice already, having only barely been recommissioned for its fourth season due to low viewing figures hampered by the show's inconsistent scheduling (it should be noted that this completely discounts streaming, which is the method the show's younger fanbase would have reached for first). This is in a world where The Big Bang Theory, a show that is basically just repeating the same joke over and over, is still on the air.

It will also mark a homecoming of sorts for Samberg, who was previously a cast member on "Saturday Night Live". Last year, the network canceled Timeless only to reverse course days later following an empassioned pitch from producers Sony Pictures Television.

Would Hulu be the best place for new seasons of Brooklyn Nine-Nine?

Fans of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" were stunned when Fox announced they were cancelling it along with fellow comedies "The Mick" and "The Last Man on Earth".

Netflix is more focused on developing originals at this point, giving Hulu room to further establish its brand as a home to quality TV in general (the streamer is reaping the benefits from its back catalog of ER episodes and recently notched exclusive SVOD rights to the ABC hit The Good Doctor).

The current fifth season of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" still has two episodes to air of its current season, meaning the finale will be on May 20th.

In addition, there's also word that TBS could also pick up the series as they grabbed the off-network rights to the comedy.
