But, following such an outpour of support for the show, Brooklyn Nine-Nine was quickly on the road to being revived.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which was Fox's highest-rated live-action comedy series this season among adults 18-49, is produced by Universal Television, Fremulon, Dr. Goor Productions and 3 Arts.
For those who don't know, FOX canceled Brooklyn Nine-Nine following five very successful seasons. It pushed the boundaries of representation in television (for example, this season featured an episode where Detective Rosa Diaz came out as bisexual). 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.
"Hey everyone, just wanted to say no big deal but".
And fans shouldn't necessarily resign themselves to this conclusion quite yet - there is already extensive speculation that Hulu, the streaming service with rights to the show's distribution, may pick it up as their own project.
Other early cancellations include Fox's The Last Man on Earth and The Mick (The Mick had been expected to return back in early April); and CBS freshman comedies 9JKL and Living Biblically. You can also opt to watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine on Netflix because episodes are available there, too. Will Brooklyn Nine-Nine be picked up by another network? Hulu now already has claim over the show via SVOD (streaming video on demand), which makes it the most likely outlet to pick up the show. Hulu now holds the show's streaming rights, and has previously picked up Fox's The Mindy Project after it was canceled in 2015.
