BROOKLYN NINE-NINE Has Been Saved By NBC
Hours after the news broke that FOC canceled Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Hulu jumped into looking at the possibility of picking it up. They ultimately ended up passing on it and not long after that, it was announced that NBC officially picked up the series!
According to Variety, Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 6 will consist of 13 episodes and there's no doubt fans of the show are very happy that it will continue! Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment had this to say in a statement:
"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. 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!"
NBC seems like a great home for the series. It always kind of felt like an NBC series anyway, especially with Andy Samberg's ties to the network through his time on Saturday Night Live.
The series was co-created produced by Mike Schur and Dan Goor and the cast for the sitcom also includes Andre Braugher, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Joe Lo Truglio, Stephanie Beatriz, Chelsea Peretti, Dirk Blocker, and Joel McKinnon Miller. Here's what some of them had to say on Twitter after the show was picked up by NBC.
Are you excited that NBC jumped in to save the series!?
