Fox is pulling the plug on ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ and the internet is furious

Fox has officially pulled the plug on Brooklyn Nine-Nine and fans across the internet are not shying away from sharing their outraged feels!

The network revealed on Thursday (May 10) that they had decided to cancel the incredibly popular cop sitcom after five seasons.

Though the fate of the series was in limbo after Fox announced its early renewals, it’s safe to say that the news of the cancellation was one that shocked the internet.

Especially given that despite lower Neilsen ratings, the series has built up quite a dedicated following thanks to its signature brand of comedy, and affinity for diversity throughout its storytelling.

Other shows that also got the axe on Thursday include The Last Man on Earth and The Mick.

According to EW, the reason for Fox’s decision comes down to adding a night of football into its weekly programming beginning this fall. The network had to make space on its slate in order to fit the sports content in.

Shortly after the news broke that Brooklyn Nine-Nine was getting the axe, fans far and wide took to Twitter to express their outrage. The shocking news even prompted some of the series’ celebrity fans to get in on the action.

Some fans, like the Root’s Questlove, even joined in on reaching out to some of the web’s biggest online streaming platforms in the hopes that perhaps the series would go the route of The Mindy Project and find a new home on Hulu.

Here’s hoping Brooklyn Nine-Nine is able to find a second life elsewhere!
