Just days after being canceled by Fox, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” is coming back for another season, thanks to NBC. NBC made the decision to pick up the show after both Netflix and Hulu passed on the hit show. Many people believe that the fans' rage and response to the cancellation was the reason for NBC’s decision.

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' passed over by streaming services

Netflix passed on it because of issues over a lack of streaming rights for previous seasons, which currently belong to Hulu. The series is made by Universal which will bring in money from streaming and off-network airing.

NBC Entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt said he regretted originally letting the show be sold to Fox and that it was time to bring the show back to its rightful home. He’s excited that one of the most popular and smartest comedies is being a part of NBC’s comedy line-up.

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' second chance attributed to vocal fans

Brooklyn Nine-Nine” fans were vocal about their displeasure following Fox’s decision to ax the show. The hit comedy was canceled along with "The Mick" and '"The Last Man on Earth" as Fox worked to make room for new shows. After the return of the show was announced, Fox later announced that it was reviving Tim Allen’s popular show “Last Man Standing.”

Variety reported that several high-profile fans including Mark Hamill and Guillermo del Toro, took to Twitter calling for any platform to save “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.” NBC picked up the hit comedy for another 13 seasons.

The comedy follows several detectives including one played by Andy Samberg, who work in the fictional 99th Precinct of the NYPD in Brooklyn, New York. Along with Samberg, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” stars Andre Braugher, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Joe Lo Truglio, Stephanie Beatriz, Chelsea Peretti, Dirk Blocker, and Joel McKinnon Miller.

With the decision, co-creator Mike Schur now has three shows on NBC for the 2018-2019 season.

NBC currently airs the popular comedy “The Good Place” and is set to air the multi-camera show “Abby’s.” This move is also seen as a homecoming for Andy Samberg, who is a former cast member of “Saturday Night Live.”

The sixth season will have 13 episodes. The possibility of a rebirth was grim as Hulu declined to make an offer to buy new episodes after it bought new episodes of “The Mindy Project.” The current season is wrapping up on May 20, which will feature the wedding of Jake and Amy. We now will have to wait and see how NBC decides to move the show forward in the coming seasons.
