‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Cast Celebrates NBC Renewal

Creators Mike Schur and Dan Goor along with cast including Melissa Fumero, Stephanie Beatriz and Chelsea Peretti posted the news on social media Friday night.

After NBC’s 11th-hour save of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the cast and crew of the canceled-and-quickly-revived comedy wasted no time in celebrating their re-employed status on social media Friday night.

Fox canceled Brooklyn Nine-Nine on Thursday after five seasons at the network — which landed the NFL next season — as it plots a new future of broad multicamera comedies and procedurals. 

Brooklyn became a worldwide trending topic following Fox’s cancellation on Thursday afternoon, though studio Universal Television received multiple calls from Hulu, Netflix, TBS and NBC. After Hulu and Netflix passed on picking up the cult favorite sitcom, producer Mike Schur tweeted that NBC had swooped in to rescue the series. 

Schur’s co-creator Dan Goor also shared his joy at the news.

The cast, including stars Melissa Fumero, Stephanie Beatriz and Chelsea Peretti, took to Twitter on Friday night to share the news with fans.

“Ever since we sold this show to Fox I’ve regretted letting it get away, and it’s high time it came back to its rightful home,” said Robert Greenblatt, NBC Entertainment chairman in a statement Friday night. “Mike Schur, Dan Goor and Andy Samberg grew up on NBC and we’re all thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest, and best cast comedies in a long time will take its place in our comedy line-up. I speak for everyone at NBC, here’s to the Nine-Nine!”

Brooklyn Nine-Nine stars Andy Samberg, Fumero, Beatriz, Terry Crews and Joe Lo Truglio as detectives on a Brooklyn police squad, with Andre Braugher as the Nine-Nine’s boss and Peretti as the unit’s overconfident administrator.
