This past week, the internet has been on fire. Following the news that Fox has made the decision to cancel ‘Brooklyn 99’ after 5 season, fans and celebrities, such as Lin-Manuel Miranda and The Backstreet Boys, all over the world have taken to their social media accounts to get a hashtag in support of renewing the show trending worldwide. The TV series has both commercial and critical success, with its star Andy Samberg winning the Golden Globe for Best Actor in 2014.
Well, do not lose help just yet.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, producers of the critically acclaimed TV series have been speaking to a bevy of outlets about keeping the show alive. Hulu and Netflix, two of the world’s most successful subscription-based streaming service and already have working relationships with the show and its production company Universal Television, have both reached out to the people behind the show to discuss bringing new episodes back to the world.
Along with the streaming services, both TBS, whose President Kevin Reily had a hand in actually developing the series, and NBC, who has a long history of making quirky, single-camera sitcoms a roaring success, have also expressed interest in working with Universal Television to give the fans, like Mark Hamill, what they want.
In the past, shows that have been canceled by their home networks have found life elsewhere. For example ‘The Mindy Project’ went on to have a few more years of success following its cancellation by Fox.
While the internet has been buzzing with support for the TV series, the production studio has declined comment.
