NBC explains why they saved Brooklyn Nine-Nine from being cancelled

scandal 14/05/2018

We almost lost all our faith in TV when news broke last week that Brooklyn Nine-Nine had handed in their badge after being cancelled.

On Saturday though, not only did NBC come to the rescue of the show but also us by announcing that they were it bringing for a brand new season.

Ofcourse the outcry of support for the show to be brought back would've played a big part but why else did NBC decide to save the show?

It turns out it's all because the show has always been close to NBC's heart. Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, explained to Entertainment Weekly:

"Brooklyn is a show our company produces for Fox, so it's a show that’s very close to us, I've been saying to certain people in the press that if we knew Andy Samberg was going to be cast in that show, we never would have sold it to Fox. We've been watching it closely ever since."

Robert also went on to say how he thinks the show is a perfect fit for NBC:

"We jumped on it really quickly and are thrilled to have it and think it fits into our brand of comedy in many ways better than it fit into FOX's brand of comedy. It feels like it goes along shows like A.P. Bio, Will & Grace, Superstore, and The Good Place."

Welcome back to the force Brooklyn Nine-Nine!
