Brooklyn Nine-Nine saved after outcry from fans over its cancellation

The news sparked an outcry by fans online to have the show, which stars Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher, reinstated.

American network NBC confirmed on Saturday that it had picked up the show for its sixth season on Twitter, with a gif showing Samberg's character Jake Peralta smiling and saying one of his catchphrases, "Noice".

On a call with reporters (via Deadline), NBC Entertainment Group chief Bob Greenblatt said Brooklyn Nine-Nine "fits into our brand of comedy, in many ways better than it ever fit on Fox". "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". Throughout its five-season run, "Nine-Nine" has garnered a dedicated and vocal fan-following that has deployed to campaign against the show's cancellation in seasons past.

Vladimir Putin opens bridge linking Russia with Crimea
Ukraine, which along with most of the global community has not recognised Russia's annexation of Crimea, condemned the project. Originally, the bridge was expected to be built before 2018 and put into operation in the summer of 2019.

It seemed like the entire world's heart broke last week when Fox announced it had cancelled sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine amidst a bevy of other axed series, including The Mick and The Last Man on Earth.

"Renew 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine.' I only watch like 4 things. It wouldn't have happened without you".

It was mostly thanks to fan support that NBC chose to give Brooklyn Nine-Nine another chance and order a 13-episode sixth season for the series. TV Line reports that Brooklyn Nine-Nine is being held until midseason, meaning it'll hit U.S. screens early next year. If Brooklyn Nine-Nine has a large streaming fanbase, that might have been reason enough to keep the show around for another set of episodes. On Friday, fans of the Mike Schur (Parks and Recreation, The Good Place) cop comedy mourned. For Fox, which didn't own Brooklyn Nine-Nine, it was expensive, with a license fee said to be around $1.9 an episode. "I was like, 'I'll never see these guys again, they'll split up, they'll go to other shows, ' I was just so hurt".

Arsenal hero Petit: I've been critical of Wenger. He appreciates it
Wenger was in unusually reflective mood as he prepared for the final match of his Arsenal tenure at Huddersfield Town tomorrow. The Gunners lost 3-0 to Premier League champions Manchester City in the League Cup final at Wembley earlier this season.

Fox will introduce an equal number of shows next season, including "The Cool Kids", an ensemble comedy about rebellious friends in a retirement community.

That should give those five new entertainment series on the two networks more time to be promoted and a better chance to succeed in a climate that is increasingly hard for more shows to catch on.
