Brooklyn Nine-Nine: Hulu Passes on Rescuing Cancelled Fox Comedy

After five seasons the much-loved comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been cancelled by Fox, leaving fans devastated. The show might not be done just yet, a new article from The Hollywood Reporter suggests the series is being looked at by several networks including the streaming giants Hulu and Netflix, along with TBS and NBC.

Fans have been in uproar since the cancellation announcement was made, with a trending hashtag to "Renew 99" quickly taking shape on Twitter.

Fox has canned Brooklyn Nine-Nine after five seasons and it seems like everyone is devastated. It's also just incredibly amusing, with a stellar ensemble cast that includes Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Joe Lo Truglio, Stephanie Beatriz, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, and Chelsea Peretti.

Netflix is the best home for Brooklyn Nine-Nine and should pick up the series.

While FOX hasn't given an official reason for the cancelation, it looks like a textbook case of declining live viewing ratings, coupled with Brooklyn Nine-Nine having enough episodes under its belt to be ready for syndication.

Other outlets eyeing the show are TBS, CBS, and Netflix. They're already streaming the entire series, and they have a connection to Brooklyn Nine-Nine's parent company Universal TV.

Other early cancellations include Fox's The Last Man on Earth and The Mick (The Mick had been expected to return back in early April); and CBS freshman comedies 9JKL and Living Biblically.

Hulu is probably the front-runner because they have the streaming rights (SVOD) to Brooklyn Nine-Nine. "It means the world to me and everyone else who works on the show", Mr. Goor wrote.

"I think we've had an incredible season", Samberg told EW.

But while it won three Golden Globes and two Emmy Nominations since making its debut, it's now been confirmed that Fox is pulling the plug on the acclaimed sitcom. Samberg's co-stars Melissa Fumero, Joe Lo Truglio and Stephanie Beatriz thank the fans who supported their show.
