Fans rejoice, Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been saved!
NBC has officially picked up Brooklyn Nine-Nine for season 6 24 hours after Fox canceled the show. Outrage poured out onto social media on Thursday when Fox announced it was canceling the show after season 5. Unsurprisingly fans petitioned through Change.org and gained over 20,000 signatures in just under a day. Although there were rumors that Hulu was interested in picking up the series both Hulu and Netflix both passed on the show.
