Do the right thing, Hulu: Pick up Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

As the report notes, Hulu has a history of reviving failed Fox projects, with The Mindy Project moving to the streaming service for its final three seasons after failing to gain traction on network TV. Melissa Fumero, Stephanie Beatriz, Chelsea Peretti, Joel McKinnon Miller, Joe Lo Truglio, Terry Crews and Dirk Blocker played the other members of the Nine-Nine. The show might not be done just yet, a new article from The Hollywood Reporter suggests the series is being looked at by several networks including the streaming giants Hulu and Netflix, along with TBS and NBC. Producer Universal Television had been in talks with Hulu to keep the series afloat, but the streaming service ultimately passed.

Less than 24 hours after FOX chose to cancel Andy Samberg's cop comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, an outpouring of public support for the show may save its life.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine isn't the only show on Fox to get the axe, unfortunately. It pushed the boundaries of representation in television (for example, this season featured an episode where Detective Rosa Diaz came out as bisexual). We'll know more after next week's TV Upfronts, but for now there are a few questions we can answer: Is Brooklyn 99 on Netflix?

And let's just say that Twitter was not pleased. It'd be a great business move for any network willing to take on this series for the right price.


The news broke yesterday evening and reactions were fast and furious. The Last Man on Earth was canceled as well.

The current fifth season of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" still has two episodes to air of its current season, meaning the finale will be on May 20th.

Meanwhile, in the United Kingdom, the show will continue to air the remaining episodes on Thursdays at 9pm on E4, with the previous seasons available to stream on Netflix.

TBS is also "overseen by Kevin Reilly, who had developed and picked up Brooklyn Nine-Nine while running Fox and is a big fan of the show", Deadline noted on Thursday.
