Last week, FOX canceled Brooklyn Nine-Nine after five seasons.

"They scooped us up, it's a Christmas miracle", Samberg explained about the series' renewal, adding he doesn't think NBC will change the format "too much".

Thankfully NBC agreed, and brought Brooklyn Nine-Nine "home" for a 13-episode sixth season. Thursdays and the weekend seem pretty packed for NBC, and Wednesdays appear to be strictly sketched out for the three Chicago series, so it's likely that Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 6 will settle into a time slot on either Monday, Tuesday, or Friday.

Hulu missed an opportunity to save Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but with NBC picking up the series, Hulu doesn't lose at all.

At the end of the day, we may never know whether Mark Hamill really made a huge impact on NBC's decisions- although he's responded to Terry Crews' message to say he's happy to take "full credit".


Fans - some of whom are famous celebrities themselves - also celebrated the revival, as the internet went up in flames a few days ago when Fox announced the cancelation.

Throughout its five-season run, "Nine-Nine" has garnered a dedicated and vocal fan-following that has deployed to campaign against the show's cancellation in seasons past.

The series was originally produced by NBC, but wasn't picked up by the network initially. "Ultimately, we felt like we didn't have the exact right place to schedule it this year to perform best in our Sunday night lineup". "Thanks in no small part to you, the best fans in the history of the world!" The show, which initially bordered on being too tongue-in-cheek, has thrived in its later seasons by exploring more hard topics such as racial profiling, corruption, gun violence, and sexuality. We were trying to create a more cohesive program, and scheduling Brooklyn would prevent us from promoting something new. Greenblatt acknowledged the quickest they could get Brooklyn Nine-Nine on the schedule would be midseason.

"Last Man Standing" was actually dropped by ABC because the network was losing money on the show. The show still has two episodes left in its fifth season.

"We were like, 'What's happening???'" she recalls. "It's the fans! I could not be more grateful for the fans who wrote petitions and kept up the passion and incredible support for the show".
