Brooklyn Nine-Nine could be saved after Fox cancellation

Kevin Estrada  FOX

From its diverse casting to its handling of LGBT storylines, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" did an incredible job of making its fans feel seen. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hulu, TBS, NBC, and Netflix have all expressed interest in saving the show.

It was revealed on Thursday that the beloved American police sitcom had been axed by FOX after just five seasons.

The cast includes Samberg, Andre Braugher, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Joe Lo Truglio, Stephanie Beatriz, Chelsea Peretti, Dirk Blocker, and Joel McKinnon Miller. But it also had another factor working against it: NBC Universal, not Fox, owns the series, though there's a chance NBC could choose to save it for its own network or sell it to Hulu or Netflix. Producer Universal Television had been in talks with Hulu to keep the series afloat, but the streaming service ultimately passed.

But Hulu makes the most sense if Brooklyn Nine-Nine is going to continue pointing out potential titles of your sex tape.

Yesterday Fox decided it wanted to kill the majority of its quality comedy shows by cancelling both The Last Man on Earth and Brooklyn 99.

"Hey everyone, just wanted to say no big deal but".

Currently, TBS is home to off-network repeats of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

And there are rumors of even more episodes to come. That's a long shot, but Hulu has done it a few times before - most notably with The Mindy Project - so it's not impossible.

But while FOX may not have faith in the cop comedy anymore, there are those who believe in the Nine-Nine, giving fresh new hope to fans. And Arrested Development found a new home on Netflix after Fox ended the show after three seasons.

Cast members have thanked fans for an outpouring of support following the show's cancellation, which was reportedly due to a drop in ratings.

The current fifth season of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" still has two episodes to air of its current season, meaning the finale will be on May 20th.
