Netflix May Give 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' New Life After Fox Cancellation

After five seasons the much-loved comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been cancelled by Fox, leaving fans devastated. But there's a chance the series may end up at TBS, NBC, or Netflix, the latter of which Deadline considers the longest shot, due to Hulu's leg up on the show's streaming rights.

Hulu could be a natural home for the series and has a history of giving new life to Fox/UTV comedies after reviving The Mindy Project for a multiple-season run following Fox's cancellation.

But even though it's done at Fox, Brooklyn Nine-Nine might not be over for good.

The show stars Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Terry Crews, Chelsea Peretti, Melissa Fumero and Stephanie Beatriz, among others.

In what has become a familiar rallying cry for TV fandom, viewers are appealing to streaming services like Netflix and Hulu to swoop in and give the series a new home.

While done at Fox, Brooklyn Nine-Nine may not be gone altogether. To me, they would be the three favorites to land the show with TBS as the dark horse. Typically shows like this can easily go on for 8-9 seasons, so if Hulu plays their cards right, they could have a series that can be successful for them for an extended period.

If there is going to be a Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 6 in the future, it's going to have to look beyond the obvious options. The network is now home to Schur's The Good Place, and this week handed out a series order to the prolific producer's comedy Abby's. The show was created by Parks and Recreation creators Dan Goor and Michael Schur.

Why did Fox cancel Brooklyn 99, Last Man on Earth, and The Mick? Unfortunately, it seems like that same creative team was keen on keeping this thing going, for at least one more season.

Fan outcry after the show was canceled was enormous, with calls to renew the series setting it trending on Twitter. #brooklyn99 fans are the best fans in the world.
