FOX Cancels BROOKLYN NINE-NINE But Hulu May Swoop in to Save It
FOX has canceled three of its big shows, each of which seemed to have a loyal fan base. Brooklyn Nine-Nine will come to an end with five seasons under its belt. The Last Man on Earth will end after four seasons. Then there's The Mick, which will say goodbye after only two seasons.
The series that they previously chose to renew include 9-1-1, Empire, Star, The Resident, The Gifted, The Orville and The Simpsons. They also ordered two new dramas that are called The Passage and Proven Innocent, as well as a new comedy entitled The Cool Kids.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine was a funny show that centered on 99th precinct of the NYPD and it starred Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, and Terry Crews. After a five-season run, I guess it was time for it to come to an end. But! According to Deadline, Hulu is looking at swooping in to save it! They say that there are conversations about the show continuing at the streaming service.
The Last Man on Earth comes from Will Forte and directors-producers Christopher Miller and Phil Lord. The story centered on a small group of survivors of a deadly virus. It starred Forte, Kristen Schaal, and January Jones. This was a solid show, but one that I think people knew wouldn't last very long.
The Mick was a dysfunctional family comedy that starred Kaitlin Olson as Mickey, a woman stuck raising her spoiled niece and nephews after their parents are arrested for defrauding the IRS. I never really watched this one.
Are you sad to hear that any of these series have been canceled?
