Fox's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" has been canceled by the network as it clears room on its schedule for a crop of new shows for the fall TV season (and Thursday night football). According to The Hollywood Reporter, Hulu, TBS, NBC, and Netflix have all expressed interest in saving the show.
All four have ties to the series.
Deadline notes that the TBS option makes sense because the network has already acquired off-network rights for the show. NBC is also under the same corporate umbrella as Universal TV. It's a great show, no doubt, but even still: it'd been a while since we've seen such a widespread outcry over a cancelled series.
Meanwhile, critics, stars and fans of the show have been voicing their concern on Twitter, including Mark Hamill and Lin-Manuel Miranda from the famed musical Hamilton, making it the #1 Trending Topic on Twitter.
Beatriz's character made it very specific she likes both men and women, in contrast to the 'bi erasure' so many other shows have been guilty of. Sources also say there has been discussion about Kaitlin Olson comedy The Mick and possibly Will Forte's Last Man on Earth finding new homes elsewhere.
