After airing over 100 episodes over five seasons, Brooklyn Nine Nine has been axed.
Immediately after Fox made the announcement that the Golden Globe-winning US sitcom would be ending after season five, fans flooded social media to not only say how devastated they were, but to call on other networks to save the show.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, within hours of the news breaking the likes of Netflix, NBC and Netflix had expressed an interest in the police comedy.
For now, nothing’s been confirmed – and the fans are out in force:
I just watched last night’s #BrooklynNineNine, I’m consistently blown away by how relevant & important this show is. Humour is used to highlight and complement important issues, never to belittle or undermine them. B99 is so smart and important. We need that s6. #renewb99

#BrooklynNineNine got cancelled. An applause to Fox who literally just took one of the best shows on TV right now, off the air – a show with excellent lgbtq representation, tackles issues of racism, discrimination, body issues and shows women in power. I’m so disappointed. pic.twitter.com/tIfgkBZ7dW

The massive outpour of support from people around the world for #Brooklyn99 amazes me. You can't put an end to this show just yet.
