Axed: Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Plus: Last Man on Earth and The Mick. Update: NBC revives Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
US sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been axed by FOX after 5 seasons.
Deadline notes it debuted to good ratings, followed quickly by Golden Globe wins. But despite being the highest-rated live-action comedy series on FOX this season overall it never drew wide audiences, with its ratings hampered by the constant scheduling moves.
The news has angered fans online. However sources tell EW that Hulu, which currently owns the SVOD rights to the series, and Universal Television are in preliminary discussions. Another outlet or two have also expressed interest, according to one source.
The series screens in Australia on SBS VICELAND.
Meanwhile FOX has also confirmed the cancellation of Last Man on Earth after four seasons and The Mick after two seasons. These aired in Australia on ONE and FOX8, respectively.
Updated: NBC has revived Brooklyn Nine-Nine for a 13-episode sixth season.
