Fox Cancels Much-Beloved Brooklyn Nine-Nine After 5 Seasons

With two episodes left to air in the fifth season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Fox has announced there won't be any more. The last comedy from an outside studio, the police comedy had started out with good ratings back in 2013 and got a quick second season renewal. It earned two Golden Globe awards, one for Best Series and one for Best Actor for star Andy Samberg. But constant scheduling changes and bouncing back and forth between Sunday and Tuesday took its toll. It ended up having a long winter break this season and coming back at 8:30 Sundays as a mid-season replacement for Ghosted.

The series was created by Dan Goor and Michael Schur of Parks and Recreation. It focuses on Det. Jake Peralta (Samberg), a good cop with a heart of gold who acts like a screwball all the time. His boss is Captain Raymond Holt (Andre Braugher) of the 99th Precinct, a by-the-book cop who has seen it all and, despite being impossible to read, is like a father figure to the whole group. Braugher got three Emmy nominations for the role. The series also stars Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero, Joe Lo Truglio, Stephanie Beatriz, Chelsea Peretti, Joel McKinnon Miller, and Dirk Blocker.

The final episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine is scheduled to air on May 20th on Fox.
