‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ got canceled—and the internet is devastated


Fox announced Thursday that Brooklyn Nine-Nine is getting the ax, much to the shock and devastation of fans who were faithful to the cop comedy.

Fox is also sending Will Forte’s The Last Man on Earth and Kaitlin Olson’s The Mick to the wayside; meanwhile, the network is bringing back Tim Allen’s Last Man Standing, which was canceled by ABC after six seasons.

But the Brooklyn Nine Nine news was particularly harrowing to people who fell in love with the Andy Sandberg show over its five seasons. As TV fans are wont to do, they tweeted their outrage and agony—plus tried to plead the case for its longevity.

Even Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator of Hamilton and a cultural force to reckon with, is heartbroken by the show’s cancellation. But if anyone can convince Fox—or another network—to bring the show back, it’s him.
