‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Boss on 30-Hour Cancellation, Revival, Planning the End

‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Boss on 30-Hour Cancellation, Revival, Planning the End
To say last week was a glass cage of emotions for “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” showrunner Dan Goor would be an understatement. The Andy Samberg-led comedy went from cancelled on Fox to renewed on NBC in a matter of 30 hours thanks to some backdoor finagling from Universal, a handful of interested broadcasters, and a powerful outpouring from fans and A-listers (including Lin-Manuel Miranda and Mark Hamill) on social media.

“A lot of what happened was behind closed doors even to executive producers on the show,” Goor tells Variety of the 13-episosde, sixth-season renewal. “The tell-all I want to read is what

‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Season Finale Was Just ‘Toit’ Enough to Serve as Series Finale Too (Commentary)
(Spoiler alert: Please do not read ahead unless you’ve seen “Brooklyn Nine-Nine”s Season 5 finale, “Jake and Amy.”)

No one is happier than us that “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” was picked up for a sixth season by NBC. Nobody. But if (and we do mean only if) the comedy hadn’t been revived just 24 hours after being canceled by its current network, Fox, earlier this month, we would have survived because Dan Goor & Co did such a great job with the Season 5 finale.

“Nine-Nine” aired its fifth-year closer, “Jake and Amy,” Sunday night, which centered around the titular couple’s nups — the toitest you’ve ever seen. Yes, going out with a wedding would have been a super cliche move, and Goor said in recent interviews that it was not his plan for how to end it all (as he was hoping against hope the show would be renewed).

Could such good will and good press propel the Nine-Nine back into the Emmy conversation — specifically for Andre Braugher?
