After five seasons the much-loved comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been cancelled by Fox, leaving fans devastated.

Sources told The Hollywood Reporter that, just hours after Fox announced the show's cancellation, multiple networks reached out to producers Universal Television. That's a long shot, but Hulu has done it a few times before - most notably with The Mindy Project - so it's not impossible.

For those who don't know, FOX canceled Brooklyn Nine-Nine following five very successful seasons. There are still two Season 5 episodes left to air on Fox, but that will be the end of its run on the network.

Fans took to Twitter to express their sadness at the show being cancelled.

Ever since the revival of Arrested Development several years ago, fans have viewed streaming services as the saviors of beloved TV shows from cancellation hell.

With showrunners, Dan Goor and Michael Shur of Parks and Recreation fame at the helm of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, so heading back to NBC could be a welcome move for the show.

The insiders add that while Selena "respects him as a person", she "has decided she is much happier doing her own thing". Justin Bieber has slammed "glamorous" celebrities for "fooling" their fans into thinking their lives are ideal .


Fans on Twitter expressed outrage, including Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, who wrote, "I only watch like 4 things; this is one of the things".

Hulu, which streams Brooklyn Nine-Nine, is viewed as the likeliest option. I hear that there had been incoming interest from other outlets about picking up the show starring Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher. Either way, Goor says the fan response has meant the world to him and the Brooklyn Nine-Nine team. The network is now home to Schur's The Good Place, and this week handed out a series order to the prolific producer's comedy Abby's.

Of course, the lower number could also be a reflection of FOX re-scheduling the show from Tuesdays to Sundays this season, and confusion on behalf of viewers.
