NBC explains why it saved Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Following a social media backlash from devastated fans, NBC confirmed it has ordered a 13-episode sixth season of the show, which airs in Australia on SBS Viceland.

The show, which follows a team of New York City detectives in Brooklyn's 99th Precinct, was one of the longest-running comedies on Fox and boasted a stellar rating on the renowned reviews aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes.

Last week, the five-season FOX comedy series was cancelled by the network, which spurred an outpouring of support from fans who demanded the show be picked up by another network or streaming service.

As Variety reports, NBC Entertainment Chairman Bob Greenblatt said he regretted selling the acclaimed comedy series to Fox back in 2013 after Andy Samberg (and NBC's Saturday Night Live alumni) was cast as the lead. "I speak for everyone at NBC, here's to the Nine-Nine!" One of those fans was Star Wars legend and Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill. "So yeah, we were emboldened, I would say, by the performance of 'Roseanne'".

"We own it. It's one of few comedies in recent years to have a really robust global number, a syndication upside which a lot of shows don't have anymore". First Brooklyn Nine Nine got cancelled and we had all of the feels. "I've been saying to certain people in the press that if we knew Andy Samberg was going to be cast in that show, we never would have sold it to Fox".

The show is executive produced by Goor and Dan Schur, the latter of whom also produces NBC's The Good Place and its newly picked up series Abby's.

Rumours of Brooklyn Nine-Nine's demise were greatly exagg.well, they were exactly right actually. Now the Peacock is thrilled to bring the show to their network, and a seventh season isn't out of the question. But...
