According to new reports, a few networks are interested in keeping the popular series, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, alive. In a report from Deadline, Hulu, the streaming platform similar to Netflix, is interested in keeping the ship afloat.
As it was previously reported, Fox announced the show’s cancelation yesterday, and many fans took to Twitter to air their grievances. In fact, it was the trending topic on Twitter for six hours.
As you may know, this isn’t the first time Hulu has saved another program, as they’ve taken a Fox comedy in the past, The Mindy Project, featuring the 40-Year-Old Virgin, alum, Mindy Kaling.
The Twittersphere blew up yesterday after Fox announced the production’s cancelation. Some of the show’s prominent cast members including Terry Crews and Stephanie Beatriz took to Twitter to thank everyone involved.
Beatriz, in particular, stated that the show was one of the greatest experiences in her life thus far, and she was tremendously grateful for her time on it.
Wow. Thank you all for this incredible outpouring of support. #brooklyn99 fans are the best fans in the world. It means the world to me and everyone else who works on the show.

During B-99’s time on the network, it was their highest rated comedy in the 18-49 demographic. As for why they chose to cancel it, is currently unclear.
Sources close to those on the show explained to us, “it was just time for it to end. All of the plotlines had been tied up including the marriage between the two main characters.”
“There is only so much you can do with a show like that. Eventually, it gets stale and everything becomes lifeless.” Either way, if the reports are true, it appears as though it might be getting a comeback.
