Brooklyn Nine-Nine 5×22 Promo “Jake & Amy”

/

Jake and Amy’s wedding day is majorly threatened, and Charles and the whole squad rush to help save it. Amidst the chaos, Holt hesitates to open the email that will indicate if he has won his campaign for Commissioner, despite Gina’s encouragement. Meanwhile, Terry gently pushes Rosa towards a potential love interest (guest star Gina Rodriguez) in the all-new “Jake & Amy” season finale episode of BROOKLYN NINE-NINE airing Sunday, May 20th on FOX.

‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Officially Revived at NBC

The network’s studio counterpart Universal Television produces the show.

It’s official: NBC has revived Brooklyn Nine-Nine for a 13-episode sixth season.

The abbreviated pickup comes a day after Fox shockingly canceled the Universal Television-produced single-camera comedy after five seasons. Universal TV, the vertically aligned studio which produced the Mike Schur and Dan Goor comedy, received almost immediate calls from mulitple outlets to potentially revive the series.

NBC was among those outlets that expressed interest in a potential sixth season given the show’s ownership structure and the outcry that ensued as the Andy Samberg comedy’s cancellation became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter.

Hulu, Netflix and TBS were also said to be among those outlets who reached out to Universal TV after the cancellation. A day later, a potential revival looked bleak after Hulu — which retains SVOD rights to Brooklyn — and Netflix both passed on a potential sixth season.

Hours later, NBC swooped in to renew the Golden Globe-winning series for an abbreviated 13-episode season in one of the biggest stories of the 2018 Upfronts.
“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 Robert Greenblatt, NBC Entertainment chairman. “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 lineup. I speak for everyone at NBC, here’s to the Nine-Nine!”

Schur and Goor — who were college roommates — both exec produced NBC hit Parks and Recreation, with Schur having also worked on The Office. And Samberg rocketed to fame on the network’s star-making Saturday Night Live.

“Hey everyone, just wanted to say no big deal but …. NBC JUST PICKED #BROOKLYN99 UP FOR SEASON 6!!! Thanks in no small part to you, the best fans in the history of the world! Nine-nine!!!!!!!!!” showrunner Goor wrote late Friday night on Twitter.

For Schur, meanwhile, he will now have three comedies on NBC’s 2018-19 broadcast schedule with Brooklyn joining returning entry The Good Place and newly ordered Abby’s. All three are produced by Universal TV (where Shur is under an overall deal), Dr. Goor Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment.

This is the second year in a row that NBC has delivered an Upfront surprise. Last year, the network canceled Timeless only to reverse course days later following an empassioned pitch from producers Sony Pictures Television (and an outpouring of support on social media). In that case, Sony TV gave up a large piece of ownership on the Shawn Ryan drama in exchange for an abbreviated-episode renewal. (And in Brooklyn’s case, NBC owns the show.) The Brooklyn deal echoes a similar move from Universal TV in 2015 when Fox canceled the studio’s The Mindy Project after three seasons. Universal TV then successfully sold the show to Hulu, where it would go on to run for three more seasons. (The studio also took The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt to Netflix — where it scored a two-season order — after NBC decided it was too niche for broadcast.)

For its part, Fox canceled Brooklyn — among several others — as the network changes course amid the pending $52.4 bilion sale of assets including its studio to Disney. Following the sale, which is expected to gain regulatory approval, the network wil court a broad demographic with a roster of newly ordered procedurals and multicamera comedies while also itself reviving Last Man Standing a year after ABC’s shocking cancellation.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine canceled after five seasons

The Nine-Nine just got 86’d.

Fox has canceled Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the network confirmed Thursday.

Those behind the highly regarded cop comedy starring Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher were once again bracing for a last-minute verdict on renewal, but not with this outcome. The show has continued to grow in buzz and critical praise in season 5, though not in the Nielsens: Season 5 averaged 2.7 million viewers and a 1.2 rating in the key 18-to-49-year-old demo, versus season 4 averages of 2.9 million viewers and a 1.3 rating among 18-to-49-year olds. A schedule shuffle had seemed to help Brooklyn’s case for renewal. The series, which began the season airing on Tuesdays before going on hiatus, perked up in the ratings when it was returned to the air on Sunday months ahead of schedule, as Ghosted’s retooled return was delayed.

Brooklyn hit the 100th-episode milestone earlier this season, and it has served as the second-longest-running live-action Fox comedy, behind New Girl. In recent years, the show with a silly side has thrived by tackling more serious topics such as racial profiling, corruption in the law, or sexuality; last week’s episode dealt with an active shooter situation. Asked recently about the show’s chances of scoring a sixth season, Samberg said, “I’m obviously hopeful. I love making it. I think we’ve had an incredible season. I feel really proud of the episodes. I feel like we’ve had a really nice upswell culturally. There was a lot of attention around the 99th episode and we got a lot of love during the Olympics, which was really cool. And there was a lot of really beautiful attention paid to the development with Rosa [Stephanie Beatriz] coming out as bi. I certainly feel we’re in a good place, but as to whether or not we get more, that’s obviously far beyond my reach. But fingers crossed.”

“I think we’re all super-optimistic,” Brooklyn star Melissa Fumero added. “Everyone wants to do at least one more season. Everybody feels like we’re not done. There’s more story to tell, there’s more fun stuff to do with this incredible ensemble of characters. It was a great sign that they brought us back on Sundays, and they brought us back earlier.”

Brooklyn‘s season 5 finale — which centers on Jake and Amy’s wedding, and now will serve as the series finale — airs May 20. To see first-look photos from the episode, click here.

Though the news is grim, there is a chance that Brooklyn could wind up in the hands of another network or a streaming service, much like what happened with The Mindy Project.

Created by Dan Goor and Parks and Recreation overlord Michael Schur, Brooklyn Nine-Nine also stars Chelsea Peretti, Joe Lo Truglio, Terry Crews, Dirk Blocker, and Joel McKinnon Miller.
