  • Fox, ABC and NBC Cancel More Shows

Last week, FOX canceled Brooklyn Nine-Nine after five seasons. "I feel like we've had a really nice upswell culturally", said Andy Samberg, who plays detective Jake Peralta, in a recent interview before the cancelation was confirmed.

According to a broadcast schedule breakdown published by TV Line, NBC is holding Brooklyn Nine-Nine season 6 until midseason, meaning that the new batch of episodes won't premiere until the beginning of 2019, after - you guessed it - other series air their midseason finales in late 2018.

There was some good news if you're a fan of "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" and/or "Last Man Standing".

Now, NBC has gone on record to explain why they are giving the show 13 more episodes, with its entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt telling Entertainment Weekly: "Brooklyn is a show our company produces for Fox, so it's a show that's very close to us".

He continued, "Mike Schur, Dan Goor, and Andy Samberg grew up on NBC and we're all thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest, and best cast comedies in a long time will take its place in our comedy line-up".

NBC, seeing the distress of the fans on Twitter, picked up the show and tweeted out "We got your SIX!"

Talking about his fellow Brooklyn Nine-Nine cast members, Crews referred to them as his "second family" due to all the time he spent with them working on the show, and described how there were "a lot of tears" that flowed as the cast said their goodbyes to each other on their WhatsApp group after five years working together. The streaming network will continue to benefit from Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Ultimately we felt like we didn't have the exact right place to schedule it this year.

Nearly immediately after news broke of the cancellation, an outcry of anger over the cancellation and support of the show took the internet by storm.

Series co-creator Dan Goor spoke with Vulture about the show's rapid fire jump from Fox to NBC, and when asked whether or not he'd be willing to have diehard fan and recent Oscar victor del Toro direct an episode, Goor did not hesitate to answer in the affirmative.

"It was great to know the fans were outraged, but we were too".

"We own it", Greenblatt said on Sunday's phone call with press. "We were emboldened by the response we saw on 'Roseanne.' We saw it as an opportunity to pair those two shows together on Friday night".

A fan of all of these, I can see Fox's point here, but their additional comments are what really get past the exec-speak and into the real reasons why the series was canceled.

Tim Allen told Fox News he was "excited" to begin filming Season 3 of "Last Man Standing".
