News: Uncanceled: Brooklyn Nine-Nine Gets Picked Up By NBC After Cancellation

After being canceled by Fox yesterday, NBC has saved Brooklyn Nine-Nine and has ordered a 13 episode 6th season. NBC's sister studio Universal TV produces the series, was an obvious home for the show after its cancellation. NBC also was among the broadcast networks that bid for the series when it hit the marketplace in 2012 before Fox picked it up.

 “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, Chairman, NBC Entertainment. “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 was canceled by Foxafter 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.
