Fox made room for Allen's comedy and more, canceling a total of five shows including "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", "The Last Man on Earth", "The Mick", "Lucifer" and "The Exorcist".
"We're really happy that it's found a new home", she said.
It was ultimately NBC that gave "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" a second life, the same network that passed on it when it was still being developed. It was hard for me. "Well, just goes to show you - a lot can happen in a year". "It's one of few comedies in recent years to have a really robust global number, a syndication upside which a lot of shows don't have any more. Needless to say, these last 24 hours have been a bit of an apology tour for me".
One of the creators of the series "Brooklyn 9-9" Dan Gur has delighted all his followers on Twitter, saying that NBC will continue the filming of the popular sitcom about police officers.
"And a fist pump, ouch, for Dana Walden and Gary Newman at Fox for not only listening to the fans but for making the bold move to bring "Last Man Standing" back".
"Usually January and February are periods for us where we do some treading water while "The Voice" is off between fall and spring and this year I am really thrilled about what we put together driven by unscripted shows", Greenblatt said. "Oh, shit, I said 'ass'".
The last five seasons of the show have been aired by Fox, but the network decided against a sixth season. Fans rallied, and soon enough, word spread that multiple outlets had stepped in to save the beloved comedy.
"Last Man Standing" was actually dropped by ABC because the network was losing money on the show. That rumor proved to be true. Some of the most high profile names lending their support to "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" were Mark Hamill, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Patton Oswalt, and Guillermo del Toro, the latter of which is now being courted to direct an episode of the show on NBC.
The drama "Blacklist", said to be on the fence to return, is on the midseason schedule. We were trying to create a more cohesive program, and scheduling Brooklyn would prevent us from promoting something new. It really limited the opportunities to schedule Brooklyn.
