News: Fox Cancels The Last Man on Earth, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Mick

Fox has canceled The Last Man on Earth, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Mick. Despite receiving five Emmy nominations in its four seasons, The Last Man on Earth never really got any further than a niche appeal and often ranked as one of Fox’s lowest-rated series. The comedy series saw Will Forte play an average guy who inadvertently becomes humanity’s last hope after a deadly virus makes him one of the last men on Earth.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine was canceled after five seasons. It started of with decent ratings and earned Golden Globe awards, Best TV Series – Comedy or Musical and Best Actor  for Andy Samberg, as well as three consecutive Emmy nominations for Andre Braugher for Supporting Actor from 2014-16. Despite critical praise, it never managed to draw wide audiences and struggled with low ratings and constant scheduling moves. The series was created by the Parks and Recreation duo of Dan Goor and Michael Schur, and revolved around on Det. Jake Peralta (Samberg), an immature but talented NYPD detective in Brooklyn's 99th precinct.

The Mick, created by John and Dave Chernin, was a major focus for Fox, but only managed to survive two seasons. Fox gave it an early season 2 renewal, but the series never really got the ratings to warrant a third season. The Mick is about an unapologetic degenerate, played by It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia's Kaitlin Olson, who suddenly finds herself stuck raising her spoiled niece and nephew in affluent Greenwich, CT.
