Nine nine! In what may be a new record for the quickest revival of a TV show, NBC has reportedly saved Brooklyn Nine-Ninefrom cancellation one day after being axed by Fox. The network is said to have ordered a 13-episode sixth season of the veteran series.
The good news comes after a large fan outcry over the unexpected cancellation of the beloved comedy. Mere hours after the show's cancellation yesterday, talk had already begun that an outlet such as Hulu, Netflix or even TBS could step in to save the show. Things looked bleak, though, when just hours ago it was reported that Hulu was not interested in taking on the series.
While NBC was also mentioned as a candidate, the network was considered a long-shot at the time. Well it looks like the long-shot came through, as Brooklyn Nine-Nine co-creator Dan Goor took to Twitter this evening to give the good word to his followers.
Led by Saturday Night Live alum Andy Samberg, Brooklyn Nine-Nine follows an offbeat group of detectives and staff at the 99th precinct of the New York Police Department. Samberg plays the eclectic Jake Peralta, a talented but immature detective whose carefree style clashes with his stern, by-the-books captain, played by Andre Braugher.
