Will Brooklyn Nine-Nine be back for a fifth season? Recently, star Andy Samberg spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about the future of the FOX TV series.
Season four of the comedy returns tonight, April 11th, at 8 p.m. ET/PT. The cast includes Andre Braugher, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Joe Lo Truglio, Stephanie Beatriz, Chelsea Peretti, Dirk Blocker, and Joel McKinnon Miller.
In the interview, Samberg said he doesn’t really pay attention to the ratings but has been told Brooklyn Nine-Nine is doing okay:
I feel like the way TV shows are measured has changed a lot in the last five, six years,” Samberg says. “There’s so much more expansion in terms of streaming and DVR and International. From the way that it’s explained to me, we are doing an actual really good overall number in terms of how many people on this Earth see our show each episode by the time it’s done running through all the different systems.
I feel like we’re right in there with all the other shows that I like. I don’t want to speak on behalf of the network, of course, but certainly the overnight ratings, they don’t matter to me that much, I can tell you that.”
Though the ratings have decreased over the years, the series has been a consistent player for FOX. Halfway through season four, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is averaging a 1.03 rating in the 18-49 demo and 2.453 million viewers.
FOX has not yet announced a season five renewal for the TV show.
