Fox Cancels 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine'
1 year ago
Word is out this afternoon that Fox has cancelled Brooklyn Nine-Nine after five seasons. The sad news comes with two episodes remaining until the comedy's now-series finale, which is scheduled to air on Sunday, May 20.
The half-hour series, which stars Saturday Night Live alum Andy Samberg, has been a decent performer for the network over the course of its run, though slipping ratings in recent seasons has seen it perennially on-the-bubble come renewal time.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine follows an offbeat group of detectives and staff at the 99th precinct of the New York Police Department. The eclectic squad is led by Jake Peralta, a talented but immature detective whose carefree style clashes with his stern, by-the-books captain.
The show recently surpassed the 100-episode milestone and was the network's second-longest-running live-action comedy. It also won numerous awards over the years, including two Golden Globes in 2014.
