Only a couple of days after Fox brought the hammer down on the show, Brooklyn 99 has been picked up by NBC. The show will get a 13-episode sixth season on its new home. It wasn’t long after the cancellation news that speculation began that the show could be picked up by another network. It was reported that streaming giants Hulu (this is where I thought the show was most likely to land) and Netflix were interested in the show, as well as networks TBS and the NBC, where the show ended up
I am glad to learn the show found a new network. This is, of course, good news for fans of the show, who, along with a few celebrities including Mark Hamill and Lin-Manuel Miranda, provided an outpouring of support once they learned the show was given the ax by Fox. This has to be the fastest turn around for a cancelled show finding a new network.
I do enjoy the show and stay current with episodes, thanks to having access to Hulu, and since Hulu is a joint venture that NBC is a part of, it is likely that new episodes will continue to be available on the streaming service in the future.
