News of Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s Cancellation Incites Twitter Outrage Amongst Fans

Twitter demands #renewB99

After five seasons, Fox revealed the network’s decision to ax one of its veteran sitcom series Brooklyn Nine-Nine Thursday, according to Entertainment Weekly

The award-winning half-hour-long police comedy, alongside “The Mick” and “The Last Man on Earth”, has been canceled to make room for the incoming fall lineup of freshman television series, which will be announced at the network’s annual Upfronts presentation in New York next week, as reported by CNN

Entertainment Weekly reports that Brooklyn Nine-Nine, helmed by an ensemble cast featuring Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher, has garnered critical acclaim for not only its representation of LGBTQ characters but also for its cautious approach in tackling of sensitive societal issues with a humorous undertone.

The show’s cast had previously expressed their optimism at being renewed for a sixth season, with Samberg stating to Entertainment Weekly that he felt “we’re in a good place, but as to whether or not we get more, that’s obviously far beyond my reach. But fingers crossed.”

The sitcom’s loyal fanbase, cultivated over the series’ five seasons, took to Twitter Thursday to express their outrage and mourn the loss of their beloved comedy, tweeting their pleas for the network to #renewB99.

Likewise, Brooklyn Nine-Nine co-creator Dan Goor and stars took to Twitter after the network’s announcement to relay their heartfelt gratitude to fans for their overwhelming support for the series.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine will air its series finale, which revolves around Jake and Amy’s wedding, on Sunday, May 20th.
