  • Posted 1 week Ago

Just 24 hours after Fox announced it wouldn't be renewing Brooklyn Nine-Nine for a fifth season, NBC has stepped in to save the Golden Globe-winning series.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, production company Universal TV received "almost immediate calls from mulitple outlets to potentially revive the series". Hulu, Netflix and TBS were rumoured to be among the networks interested in the show, but in the end NBC were the ones to snag it for a sixth season.

"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," said Robert Greenblatt, NBC Entertainment chairman. "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 lineup. I speak for everyone at NBC, here’s to the Nine-Nine!"

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Season 6 will consist of 13 episodes. A release date it yet to be announced.
