Brooklyn Nine-Nine won't be finding its second wind via two of the web's biggest online streaming platforms.

NBC was among those outlets that expressed interest in a potential sixth season given the show's ownership structure and the outcry that ensued as the Andy Samberg comedy's cancellation became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter.

Created in 2013 by Dan Goor and Parks and Recreation co-creator Michael Schur, Brooklyn Nine-Nine also stars Andre Braugher, Stephanie Beatriz, Chelsea Peretti, Joe Lo Truglio, Terry Crews, Dirk Blocker, and Joel McKinnon Miller.

Deadline goes on to mention Netflix and NBC as other possible candidates, all of them with some connection to Brooklyn Nine-Nine or a history of resurrecting dead shows. Universal TV, the vertically aligned studio which produced the Mike Schur and Dan Goor comedy, received nearly immediate calls from mulitple outlets to potentially revive the series. Here's what film director Guillermo del Toro has to say about the series via Twitter on Friday.

While The Last Man on Earth had a bit of a bumpy ride throughout, it was overall an incredibly interesting and amusing show, with a concept that could have been truly awesome. Some episodes are free, others you'll need a cable login in order to watch.

Currently, TBS is home to off-network repeats of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

We're a little biased, so we hope Netflix picks up the series for more episodes. There were temporary discussions about bringing the show over in a way that was similar to The Mindy Project following its own cancellation.

Netflix is more focused on developing originals at this point, giving Hulu room to further establish its brand as a home to quality TV in general (the streamer is reaping the benefits from its back catalog of ER episodes and recently notched exclusive SVOD rights to the ABC hit The Good Doctor).

It's clear from the immediate reactions to the news that Brooklyn Nine-Nine has some very devoted fans. CBS picked up the show Medium after NBC also canceled that show.
