'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Cancelled After Five Seasons

BY Calum SlingerlandPublished May 10, 2018

After a five-season run, Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been cancelled by Fox.

The network confirmed the cancellation today as part of plotting out its 2018-19 schedule. The series, which hit its 100-episode milestone earlier this season, is the second-longest-running live-action comedy on Fox, behind New Girl. It is also the only Fox comedy series to come from an outside studio (Universal TV).

Brooklyn Nine-Nine debuted in September 2013 and was renewed for a second season, earning the show two Golden Globe Awards for Best TV Series - Comedy or Musical, and Best Actor in a Comedy for star Andy Samberg.

Nielsen numbers show Season 5 has averaged around 2.7 million viewers and a 1.2 rating in the 18- to 49-year-old demographic, versus Season 4 averages of 2.9 million viewers and 1.3 rating among the same demographic.

The series began its fifth season airing on Tuesdays before going on a winter hiatus, with ratings jumping after it returned to air on Sunday months ahead of schedule following the delay of Ghosted.

Despite news of the cancellation, there is a chance the series could end up on another network or streaming service, not unlike The Mindy Project. Fans have inquired online about the possibility of pressuring Fox for a renewal, for which actress Stephanie Beatriz (who plays detective Rosa Diaz in the series) provided some hashtags that you can find below.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine was created by Dan Goor and Michael Schur (Parks and Recreation) and also stars Andre Braugher, Melissa Fumero, Chelsea Peretti, Joe Lo Truglio, Terry Crews, Dirk Blocker, and Joel McKinnon Miller.

The series' finale will air May 20.
