NBC Saves ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ From Cancellation

NBC rescued cop sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine late Friday, picking the show up for a sixth season just a day after it was canceled by Fox. “We got your SIX! #Brooklyn99 is officially coming to NBC!” the network tweeted early Saturday. “Ever since we sold this show to Fox I’ve regretted letting it get away, and it’s high time it came back to its rightful home,” Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, said in a statement. The move came after some of the show’s high-profile fans, including Mark Hamill and Lin-Manuel Miranda, led the charge on social media to bring it back for another season. The show, starring Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Joe Lo Truglio, and Stephanie Beatriz, among others, has developed a cult following for its portrayal of a dysfunctional police precinct.
