Police comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been saved for a sixth season after being picked up by NBC, reports Variety. The show's abrupt cancellation had upset the series' fans. NBC has ordered a 13-episode sixth season for the 2018-2019 season. This brings the total of shows at NBC by the show's other creator, Mike Schur, to three, as he lords over The Good Place and the just-ordered comedy Abby's.
Not long after the news broke, #Brooklyn99 and #RenewB99 began trending on Twitter. He tweeted, "Hey everyone, just wanted to say no big deal but...." You got loud and you were heard and we are forever grateful to you for doing so! Melissa Fumero, who plays Amy Santiago, posted a number of GIFs, including one of her character punching the air, and wrote: #Brooklyn99 IS COMING BACK FOR SEASON 6 YOU GUYS ON NBC! THANK YOU. You made this happen.
And now one network has taken up the suggestion, with USA network NBC - who already had a stake in the series thanks to its NBC Universal production arm - reviving the series just one day after it was cancelled.
