Streaming Services Already Offering to Save the Currently Canceled Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Yesterday, we heard the sad news that the hit Fox show Brooklyn Nine-Nine had been canceled, with Season Five being its final season. Fans immediately jumped on the hope that a streaming service would step in to save the show and give it new life. Well, it seems that this isn’t just a fan pipe dream. Several companies have already made their desire to pick up the show known.
As reported by The Daily Dot, several streaming services have already reached out to Universal TV, the company that owns Brooklyn Nine-Nine, hoping to snag it. But it isn’t just streaming services! In addition to Hulu and Netflix having reached out, Universal TV has also reportedly received calls from NBC and TBS with the hopes of keeping the show around a bit longer.
All of these networks and services have an interest in saving the show. Hulu, which is seen as the likeliest option if the show is going anywhere, already streams the show in its relationship with Universal TV, which also owned The Mindy Project (which Hulu also saved for several more seasons before it finally ended after Season Six). TBS currently airs re-runs of the show, and Netflix also has a great relationship with Universal TV, and shouldn’t be counted out. NBC’s parent company is NBCUniversal, and Universal TV is NBCU’s production arm.
Any of these choices would be great for the show and would hopefully give us a few more seasons of the critically-acclaimed and award-winning Nine-Nine. A show this hilarious, progressive, and inclusive should be allowed to stick around as long as possible. After all, what else are other shows supposed to look to in order to see how it’s done?
If you want to show your support for Brooklyn Nine-Nine, we’ve set up a handy petition you can add your name to. Every little bit counts, right?
