Here’s The Reason Why Brooklyn Nine-Nine Was Cancelled By Fox

“Five seasons is a great length of time for a single-camera comedy.”


“It was based on a variety of factors,” Dana Walden, Chairmen, and CEO, Fox Television Group, said, according to EW. “We love this show, those are great creators, it’s a phenomenal cast. We ordered it throughout five seasons. It’s a great length of time for a single-camera comedy.”

Fox had no right  place to schedule Brooklyn Nine-Nine this year


She further continued,“Ultimately we felt like we didn’t have the exact right place to schedule it this year. It performed best in our Sunday night lineup. We wanted to give Bob’s Burgers an opportunity to have a plum time period and really grow. It really limited the opportunities to schedule Brooklyn.”


Brooklyn would prevent Fox from promoting something new


“With Thursday Night Football, there were two fewer hours to program. We were trying to create a more cohesive program, and scheduling Brooklyn would prevent us from promoting something new. Ultimately we decided we just didn’t have room for it and were trying we’re really happy its found a new home.”
