Late Friday night, amid a bloodbath of cancellations, NBC offered a glimmer of hope after fan-favorite (and award winning) Brooklyn 99 was cancelled by FOX. Rumors swirled that Hulu would step up, but those dreams were dashed until NBC announced that the cop comedy would live another day – or 13 episodes – on the peacock.
Thanks to executive producer Dan Goor, fans were informed of the great news on Twitter:
According to TVLine, NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt released a statement, “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”. Adding, “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!”
So don’t forget to tune into the 6th season of the Andy Samberg led ensemble laughfest when it returns for 13 new episodes on NBC.
