In which NBC swoops in at the latest second and saves the day. By Scott Wampler May. 11, 2018 Stand by for several important announcements from Twitter: SQUAD YOU DID IT #BROOKLYN99 WILL BE ON NBC FOR OUR 6th SEASON!— Stephanie Beatriz (@iamstephbeatz) May 12, 2018 So happy to announce: — The Lonely Island (@thelonelyisland) May 12, 2018 NBC TAKIN B99 OFFA FOXES HANDSIES BBBBBSSSSSSssss pic.twitter.com/qXFr3Ic27G— Chelsea Peretti (@chelseaperetti) May 12, 2018 That’s right – as reported above and as confirmed by Deadline, FOX’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine, cancelled just two days ago to great public outcry, has been picked up by NBC for a sixth season, to be comprised of 13 episodes. Early today it looked as though Hulu might pick up the show, a move that would’ve bought the still-expanding streaming service a much-needed dose of goodwill among TV comedy fans. Earlier this evening, word circulated that Hulu had passed on the opportunity and that TBS might step up to the plate, but…nope. Turns out, NBC got it. Nothing further’s known at this time, but there’ll probably be an official statement along sometime tomorrow. We’ll update this post with that statement if and when it comes in. For the time being, Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans, raise your Friday-night drinking glasses to NBC and celebrate. Sometimes wishes do come true.
