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.
Squad, we love you. What a gift this series has been: it’s been my honor. Your sadness is noted. NINE- NINE! pic.twitter.com/qAcOYfpNZh

So @FOXTV cancels a show about any & every kind of diversity called #Brooklyn99 only to bring back A B C ‘s disgarded sewage about a misogynistic, xenophobic, intolerant orange Twitler worshipper.

To be honest the cancellation of #Brooklyn99 feels like there is no ~value~ in telling diverse & real stories & inclusive stories bc if a show like b99 that has been critically acclaimed from the beginning & has had the impact it has had can’t make it? There is no hope.

#Brooklyn99 is not only the most consistently good television show currently airing but it’s one of the most consistent TV shows EVER. There is no other show that makes me genuinely laugh out loud multiple times per episode. #RenewBrooklyn99
