Maybe more to the point, the ensemble comedy may have been a "better fit" financially for NBC.
Speaking of Fox, the network revealed its Fall 2018-2019 schedule on Monday. This year, with the Super Bowl and the Winter Olympics added to its already strong prime-time lineup - "Sunday Night Football, "This Is Us, and "The Voice" - NBC has had an impressive, consistent lead in all key viewer metrics". I was working on another show and I got the email that we were canceled.
"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" is a comedy following a team of detectives from the 99th Precinct in Brooklyn.
The series was originally produced by NBC, but wasn't picked up by the network initially.
"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" has been renewed by NBC for a sixth season after being cancelled by Fox.
For Fox, the show had become very expensive to float with an escalating license fee to producer Universal.
"We're thrilled to have [Brooklyn Nine-Nine]", Greenblatt said.
Meanwhile, NBC decided not to give the midseason drama "Rise" a second season, meaning next Tuesday's episode will end its run. The show is made by an NBC Universal-owed studio. The show that just one year ago was the highest rated new sitcom tumbled to the bottom of CBS' ratings cellar. It stars Ryan Eggold of "The Blacklist" and is inspired by Bellevue Hospital in New York City. But while Allen had suggested that his show's cancellation was related to his conservative views, politics may have played less of a role than business: Twentieth Century Fox Television produces the show. "I was like, 'I'll never see these guys again, they'll split up, they'll go to other shows, ' I was just so hurt". The network needed to find the right spot for it, she said. Fans who were once crying out on social media for someone - anyone - to save Brooklyn Nine-Nine suddenly rejoiced, knowing that Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg), Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero), Rosa Diaz (Stephanie Beatriz), Gina Linetti (Chelsea Peretti), and the whole gang would return for more shenanigans soon.
Apparently, he is also a big fan of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and he has tweeted about the show prior to its cancellation, including congratulating the cast when the former Fox show hit 100 episodes earlier this year.
