Brooklyn Nine-Nine is not returning for another season following news that Fox has canceled the comedy series after Season 5 because of its lack of viewership.

All this makes the news surprising, with Fox yet to give any reason as to why the show is to be dropped.

Fans who have been shedding tears of over Fox cancelling Brooklyn Nine-Nine may be in luck, as there already seem to be a few suitors willing to keep the beloved Mike Schur comedy alive.

Regardless, Brooklyn Nine-Nine was the highest-rated live-action comedy on Fox. Amongst them, celebrity names such as Mark Hammill and Lin-Manuel Miranda have called for the series to be picked up once again.

Last Man on Earth and The Mick are the two others recently announced as coming to an end.

In the Peak TV world, one network's canceled show may be another's new arrival. Typically shows like this can easily go on for 8-9 seasons, so if Hulu plays their cards right, they could have a series that can be successful for them for an extended period.

Brooklyn Nine Nine has been a dependable performer for E4 in the United Kingdom, typically attracting 400,000 to 500,000 viewers for an episode.

Last Man on Earth co-creator Chris Miller is just as upset about the show's cancellation as you.

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" starred Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher and aired for five seasons. While Fox is dumping the show, its season five may not be the show's last.

Meanwhile, Netflix's Bela Bajaria, who handles the streaming network's pickups of shows that have originated elsewhere, shepherded the development and production of Brooklyn Nine-Nine in her former capacity as president of Universal TV.

Numerous series' celebrity fans voiced their sentiments over the cancellation as well.

An episode about Brooklyn Nine-Nine's characters Jake and Amy's wedding will close out the show as the series finale, airing May 20 on Fox in the United States and on Netflix in Australia.
