FOX is handing in their badge. Today, the network cancelled Brooklyn Nine-Nine after five seasons, EW reports.
The policy comedy follows Detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) and the rest of the unique detectives and officers at the NYPD’s 99th Precinct. The cast also includes Andre Braugher, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Joe Lo Truglio, Stephanie Beatriz, Chelsea Peretti, Joel McKinnon Miller, and Dirk Blocker.
A Look at the Ratings:
Ratings for Brooklyn Nine-Nine have really waned in recent years, so it’s no surprise FOX has pulled the trigger. So far, season five is averaging a 0.73 rating in the 18-49 demo and 1.757 million viewers.
The defacto series finale will air on Sunday, May 20th, and will feature a wedding. While it was not intended as the show’s last episode, co-creator Dan Goor believes that fans will feel satisfied with the conclusion.
What do you think? Do you watch Brooklyn Nine-Nine? Are you sad it’s been cancelled? Would you have watched a sixth season or, was this a good time to end the show?
5/11/18 update: NBC has picked up the series for season six. Details here.
