Looks like Brooklyn Nine-Nine is here to stay after all.
Following the news of its cancellation by Fox, NBC announced that it has picked up the series for a sixth season. Season six will consist of 13 episodes.
The news was announced by the network on Friday. Producer Universal Television initially went to Hulu in hopes of keeping the comedy on-screen, by the streaming service eventually passed.
“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,” said Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment. “Mike Schur, Dan Goor, and Andy Samberg grew up on NBC and we’re all thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest, and best cast comedies in a long time will take its place in our comedy line-up. I speak for everyone at NBC, here’s to the Nine-Nine!”
Schur, co-creator and executive producer took to social media to share his excitement.
“Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Season 6. NBC,” he shared. “This happened because the fans of the show went berzerk. We can’t thank you — or @NBC — enough. #Brooklyn99.”
Creator Dan Goor also joined the festivities tweeting, ”Hey everyone, just wanted to say no big deal but…. NBC JUST PICKED #BROOKLYN99 UP FOR SEASON 6!!! Thanks in no small part to you, the best fans in the history of the world! Nine-nine!!!!!!!!!”
One network’s loss is another’s gain!
