Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been saved - and fans couldn't be happier

Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been saved - and fans couldn't be happier

It's pretty rare that a canceled show successfully finds a home someplace else.

Numerous show's ensemble cast celebrated the revival news.

A day after Fox canceled the Andy Samberg police sitcom Thursday (May 10), NBC swooped in and announced late Friday (May 11) that it was picking up the series for a sixth season and 13 episodes. The show is produced by Universal Television, a subsidiary of the NBCUniversal Television Group, and thus, under the same company as NBC.

"It was a missed opportunity for us from the beginning", he said. He followed up that statement by saying he never would've let SNL alum Andy Samberg go to Fox if he had known he would've been cast in the show. "We've been watching it closely ever since".

Against Brighton, at half time I told the players they were going to lose and tonight at half time I said we would win. Big part of those shots were coming from long distance and it was obvious United lacked a proper end product.

While the fan outcry was heartening, NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said that because of business considerations, the pickup already was in the works.

But all hope is not lost, as the outpouring of support (and anger) from fans has shown other networks that there might still be an audience worth chasing after. Greenblatt confirmed that this played a role in NBC's decision. If something has an avid, occasionally rabid, fanbase, the Fandom 250 wants to recognize that love - the kind of the love that inspires thousands to express themselves with such enthusiasm at broadcast network takes notice.

"It was great to know the fans were outraged, but we were too", he confessed.

NBC noticed the love, and so did our experts in the TV category for the Fandom 250. "Now we get the news from FOX that it's time to get back out on that diamond - hell yes, I'm excited!" In addition, Fox holds the rights to air Major League Baseball postseason games, including the World Series. The network has trimmed down their primetime line-up significantly to make room for more sports coverage. The sporting event will occupy more than 30 hours of Fox's airtime, leaving less room for numerous beloved shows that call the network home.
