NBC picks up Brooklyn Nine-Nine for season six after Fox cancellation”

Despite the fact that it's the weekend, an Andy Samberg-shaped cloud was hanging over all of us with the news that Fox chose to pull the plug on Brooklyn Nine-Nine after the current fifth series.

Cast and writers thanked fans on social media for causing such an uproar when Fox cancelled the show.

Just a day after it was announced that Fox, the U.S. network that airs the beloved cop comedy, had made a decision to cancel the show after its fifth season, it's been confirmed that NBC has picked up the sitcom for a sixth season - and it's all thanks to the fans.

"Ever since we sold this show to Fox I've regretted letting it get away, and it's high time it came back to its rightful home", said Robert Greenblatt, NBC chairman. Fans, including celebrities from all over the film and TV worlds, have proclaimed their love for the show and their fervent hope that another network or streaming service would pick up the show. NBC has ordered a 13-episode sixth season for the 2018-2019 season.

The cast members of the show also announced the news on their personal Twitter handles. "And we're excited about this incredible new chapter for Brooklyn Nine-Nine". You got loud and you were heard and you saved our show! We can't thank you - or @NBC - enough.

Chelsea Peretti, who plays Gina Linetti, posted a GIF of a thumbs up, while Stephanie Beatriz, who plays Rosa Diaz, said: "SQUAD YOU DID IT #BROOKLYN99 WILL BE ON NBC FOR OUR 6th SEASON!"

NBC has answered the 9-1-1 call sent out by "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" fans. "It wouldn't have happened without you".
