Fox Have Cancelled Comedy TV Show Brooklyn Nine-Nine
Fans of the comedy cop show Brooklyn Nine-Nine have been left shocked and devastated this morning after news broke that Fox has cancelled the show after five seasons.
The show, which centred around the hilarious antics of a police precinct in Brooklyn New York, and the weird and whacky officers that work there, first aired in September 2013 starring Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine quickly developed a cult-like following which led to the creation of it’s multiple seasons. It also earned two Golden Globe awards for Best TV Series - Comedy or Musical and the Best Actor in a Comedy award for Samberg.
But on Thursday, Fox announced that the show would be axed. Co Creator of the show and executive producer Dan Goor posted a heartfelt message to Twitter soon after the announcement saying that he has been overwhelmed by support from fans.
Wow. Thank you all for this incredible outpouring of support. #brooklyn99 fans are the best fans in the world. It means the world to me and everyone else who works on the show.— Dan Goor (@djgoor) May 10, 2018
Many of the cast members have also taken to social media to share their sadness.

Fans are urging streaming services like Hulu and Netflix to jump on board to save the series but from the looks of things, we’ll sadly be saying goodbye to the Nine Nine for good.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine will end after the big season finale episode of Season five which will see two major characters, Jake and Amy, get married.
