NBC picks up Brooklyn Nine-Nine for a sixth season May 12 2018

NBC picks up Brooklyn Nine-Nine for a sixth season

Just days after FOX announced that it was cancelling Brooklyn Nine-Nine, NBC has picked up the show for the 2018/19 season.

The network has ordered 13 episodes and the show's entire cast is set to return for the sixth season.

Multiple parties were reportedly interested in picking up Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but the hope for a revival seemed a little fainter when online streaming sites Hulu and Netflix both revealed they were passing on the show.

NBC is the sister network of Universal Television, which produces the show and previously licensed it to FOX.

When news broke that Brooklyn Nine-Nine had been cancelled, anger at FOX's decision sent the show to the top of Twitter's trending topics.

Universal reportedly in talks to keep Brooklyn Nine-Nine going May 11 2018

Universal reportedly in talks to keep Brooklyn Nine-Nine going

Universal Television, the studio behind Brooklyn Nine-Nine, is reportedly in early discussions with a number of interested parties to keep Brooklyn Nine-Nine going after it was cancelled by the FOX network.

Media reports suggest there is interest from online video services, broadcast and cable networks in picking up the show for a sixth season.

Hulu, which has the streaming rights to the show, is seen as a likely contender. The network previously picked up The Mindy Project after it too was cancelled by the FOX network. Although rival Netflix has been reported as a candidate to pick up the show, that would be complicated by the fact Hulu already has the SVOD rights.

On traditional television, cable network TBS is a possibility as the network last year picked up the off-network rights to broadcast the show. NBC could also be interested in picking up the show as it is produced by its sister studio, Universal Television.

When FOX announced its decision to cancel Brooklyn Nine-Nine yesterday after five seasons, the show quickly became the top trending topic on Twitter. A number of famous fans, including Mark Hamill and Lin-Manuel Miranda, weighed in with their disappointed at the show's cancellation.
