Brooklyn Nine-Nine Canceled. Let's Hope Someone Picks Up The Show

Fox has canceled Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the network confirmed Thursday.

Those behind the highly regarded cop comedy starring Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher were once again bracing for a last-minute verdict on renewal, but not with this outcome. The zany, thoughtful series has continued to grow in buzz and critical praise, though not in the Nielsens: Season 5 averaged 2.7 million viewers and a 1.2 rating in the key 18-to-49-year-old demo, versus season 4 averages of 2.9 million viewers and a 1.3 rating among 18-to-49-year olds. A schedule shuffle had seemed to help Brooklyn’s case for renewal. The series, which began the season airing on Tuesdays before going on hiatus, perked up in the ratings when it was returned to the air on Sunday months ahead of schedule, as Ghosted’s retooled return was delayed.

Brooklyn hit the 100th-episode milestone earlier this season, and it has served as the second-longest-running live-action Fox comedy, behind New Girl. In recent years, the progressive show with a silly side has thrived by tackling more serious topics such as racial profiling, corruption in the law, or sexuality; last week’s episode dealt with an active shooter situation. Asked recently about the show’s chances of scoring a sixth season, Samberg said, “I’m obviously hopeful. I love making it. I think we’ve had an incredible season. I feel really proud of the episodes. I feel like we’ve had a really nice upswell culturally. There was a lot of attention around the 99th episode and we got a lot of love during the Olympics, which was really cool. And there was a lot of really beautiful attention paid to the development with Rosa [Stephanie Beatriz] coming out as bi. I certainly feel we’re in a good place, but as to whether or not we get more, that’s obviously far beyond my reach. But fingers crossed.”

“I think we’re all super-optimistic,” Brooklyn star Melissa Fumero added. “Everyone wants to do at least one more season. Everybody feels like we’re not done. There’s more story to tell, there’s more fun stuff to do with this incredible ensemble of characters. It was a great sign that they brought us back on Sundays, and they brought us back earlier.”

Brooklyn‘s season 5 finale — which centers on Jake and Amy’s wedding, and now will serve as the series finale — airs May 20.

Alhough the news is grim, there is a chance that Brooklyn could wind up in the hands of another network or a streaming service, much like what happened with The Mindy Project.

Created by Dan Goor and Parks and Recreation overlord Michael Schur, Brooklyn Nine-Nine also stars Chelsea Peretti, Joe Lo Truglio, Terry Crews, Dirk Blocker, and Joel McKinnon Miller.

Fox also axed another veteran comedy, The Last Man on Earth as well as sophomore comedy The Mick. One factor in the cancellations: Fox is adding a night of football in the fall, which reduces the available real estate on its schedule.

Jack Cunningham (Ben Affleck) once had a life filled with promise. In high school, he was a basketball phenom with a full ride to college, when suddenly, for reasons unknown, he walked away from the game, forfeiting his future. Now years later, Jack is stuck in a meaningless job and drowning in the alcoholism that cost him his marriage and any hope for a better life. When he is asked to coach the basketball team at his alma mater, which has fallen far since his glory days, he reluctantly accepts, surprising no one more than himself. As the boys start to come together as a team and win, Jack may have finally found a reason to confront the demons that have derailed him.
