'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' Canceled by Fox After 5 Seasons
Sad news for Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans: the comedy has been canceled.
A Fox rep confirms to ET that the Andy Samberg-starrer was canceled on Thursday, alongside The Mick and The Last Man on Earth. Brooklyn Nine-Nine is about to wrap its fifth and final season, while The Mick, starring Kaitlin Olson, just aired its season two finale. The Last Man on Earth, starring Will Forte, just aired its final season four episode.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine hit its 100th-episode milestone this season and was the second-longest-running live-action Fox comedy behind New Girl (which is ending after its seventh season this year).
Samberg opened up about the comedy's chances of scoring another season in a recent interview, revealing that he was "hopeful" about the situation.
"I think we’ve had an incredible season. I feel really proud of the episodes. I feel like we’ve had a really nice upswell culturally," he said, according to Entertainment Weekly. "There was a lot of attention around the 99th episode and we got a lot of love during the Olympics, which was really cool. And there was a lot of really beautiful attention paid to the development with Rosa [Stephanie Beatriz] coming out as bi."
"I certainly feel we’re in a good place, but as to whether or not we get more, that’s obviously far beyond my reach," he added. "But fingers crossed.”
Brooklyn Nine-Nine's season five finale, which centers on Jake (Samberg) and Amy's (Melissa Fumero) wedding, airs May 20. See more on Samberg in the video below.
