NBC Reportedly Saving Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Posted by May 11, 2018 Comment

What an eventful 48 hours for the canceled FOX series Brooklyn Nine-Nine. After what looked like an uncertain future even though the powers that be where doing everything they could to find a new home for the five-season show, it looks like we have a happy ending after all.

NBC Universal has picked up the comedy for a 13-episode sixth season. NBC Entertainment Chairman Robert Greenblatt said 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!”

Co-creator of the series Michael Schur, who goes by Ken Tremendous on Twitter, posted that NBC had picked up the series:

Followed quickly by additional gif-form excitement:

Dan Goor, another co-creator on the series who served as executive producer on season 5 of the series on FOX, posted:

So did Melissa Fumero:

Joe Lo Trulio, who plays Charles Boyles on the series, also took to Twitter to share the good news, thanking fans:

Fellow Saturday Night Live alum Seth Meyers also tweeted about the save, making a parking tickets joke:

It looks like it’ll be a 13-episode pickup, at least according to Daniel Fienberg of The Hollywood Reporter:

About Mary Anne Butler

Bleeding Cool News Editor Mary Anne Butler (Mab, for short) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), and most recently Bleeding Cool.

Over the past 10 years, she’s built a presence at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). 

Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. 

Though she be but little, she is fierce. #MabTheProfessional
