FOX has canceled “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” after five seasons. It was the network’s second longest-running series following “New Girl.”

The series, which starred Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher,  Dirk Blocker, Joel McKinnon Miller, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Chelsea Peretti and Stephanie Beatriz, recently hit the milestone of 99 episodes.

“I think we’ve had an incredible season,” Samberg told EW. “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.”

Fans were shocked by the cancellation as were members of the cast.

According to Deadline, the series may get revived by Hulu which also picked up “The Mindy Project” after its FOX cancellation.

The series finale aires on Sunday, May 20.
