'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Saved by NBC After Fox Cancellation
Last night (May 11), the network tweeted "We got your SIX! #Brooklyn99 is officially coming to NBC!"
The network was one of several broadcasters reportedly interested in saving the program, alongside Hulu, Netflix and TBS.
"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 NBC chairman Robert Greenblatt. "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!"
Brooklyn Nine-Nine creators Dan Goor and Michael Schur previously worked on Parks and Recreation, which aired on NBC from 2009 to 2015, while star Andy Samberg was a cast member on Saturday Night Live from 2005 until 2012.
The show also stars Stephanie Beatriz, Andre Braugher, Melissa Fumero, Chelsea Peretti, Joe Lo Truglio, Terry Crews, Dirk Blocker, and Joel McKinnon Miller.
Below, see NBC's official tweet announcing the move, followed by reactions from cast and crew.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine's final episode on Fox will air May 20. There is no news as to when the program will begin airing on NBC.
