Brooklyn Nine-Nine Scores An Early Season 7 Renewal

When Brooklyn Nine-Nine’s future was questionable and all hope seemed lost for the show’s continuation/survival, NBC came to the show’s rescue.

The show had been housed on Fox for five years, but after scheduling difficulties, Fox decided that New York’s finest had had a good run. In an interview with EW, Dana Walden, Chairman and CEO of Fox, said, “Ultimately we decided we just didn’t have room for [B99]…”

In Fox’s opinion, five years is good enough for a comedy, so it was time for Brooklyn Nine-Nine to take a rest.

The show’s fans were outraged. Their protests on social media saved B99, and now, thanks to fans—and NBC—Brooklyn Nine-Nine not only had its sixth season run on the network, but the show has just been renewed for a seventh season on NBC.

The show’s sixth season premiere made its debut on NBC on January 10th, gaining close to 3.6 million viewers.

Co-Presidents of Scripted Programming at NBC, Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, shared: “It’s been one of our great joys as a network to give Brooklyn Nine-Nine a second life…Cheers to Dan Goor, Mike Schur, Luke Del Tredici and David Miner, and our amazing cast and crew who each week turn New York’s finest into New York’s funniest.”

Although NBC has not released how many episodes the 7th season will have, we can rest assured that Brooklyn Nine-Nine won’t be saying goodbye in the near future.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine airs Thursdays at 9/8c on NBC.
