The news sparked an outcry by fans online to have the show, which stars Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher, reinstated. However, by the time Parker was finished, NBC came riding to the rescue and renewed Brooklyn Nine-Nine for a 13-episode sixth season. After Netflix and Hulu passed on picking up the series, NBC swooped in and revived Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
"I got my start at NBC at "SNL" and I've always considered it home", Samberg said after joining fellow "Saturday Night Live" alum and "Late Night" host Seth Meyers Monday on stage at New York's Radio City Music Hall for NBC's annual upfront presentation of its new shows to advertisers. "It wouldn't have happened without you". He will be replaced with a new character played by Seann William Scott, who is best known for his role as Steve Stifler in the "American Pie" movies. Fans who were once crying out on social media for someone - anyone - to save Brooklyn Nine-Nine suddenly rejoiced, knowing that Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg), Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero), Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz), Gina Linetti (Chelsea Peretti), and the whole gang would return for more shenanigans soon. "Twitter exploded in outrage upon receiving news of the show's cancellation, with hashtags such as "#RenewB99" and "#SaveB99".
The series was originally produced by NBC, but wasn't picked up by the network initially.More news: Netflix Horror Anthology Series From Guillermo del Toro in Development
NBC noticed the love, and so did our experts in the TV category for the Fandom 250.
It seems, with fans as supportive as these, Brooklyn Nine-Nine may never end up behind bars. Among them were Oscar victor Guillermo del Toro, composer-actor Lin-Manuel Miranda and "Star Wars" actor Mark Hamill, according to Entertainment Tonight.
"Ultimately we felt we did not have the exact right place to schedule", the show having performed best on Sunday, where Fox made a decision to give animated Bob's Burgers the plum time period and "chance to grow".
Rise, the NBC drama inspired by Michael Sokolove's Drama High, about the legendary drama program at Levittown's Truman High School, will air its final episode at 9 p.m. Tuesday, having failed to make the cut for the network's 2018-19 schedule.
