We Regret To Inform You That ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Has Been Cancelled

Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been cancelled after five seasons.

Although the Andy Samberg-led show drew consistently good reviews and notched a fair few Golden Globe awards, Deadline reports the cop comedy has been dropped due to middling ratings.

The cancellation means the Season 5 finale, which airs in the US on May 20, will serve as the show’s last outing.

That’s despite a schedule reshuffle on its home network, which seemed to indicate Brooklyn Nine-Nine was prepped for renewal.

Recent episodes had also proved the show’s versatility, as it addressed important issues like the bisexuality of Detective Rosa Diaz [Stephanie Beatriz] and racial profiling.

Co-star Melissa Fumero recently spoke on the show’s chances for renewal, saying “everybody feels like we’re not done. There’s more story to tell, there’s more fun stuff to do with this incredible ensemble of characters.”

At the very least, the show – which was essentially the comforting sitcom equivalent of a safety blanket – will live on in its adoring fan community.
