'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' won't find new home with Hulu, Netflix

Following the cancelation, there's word that it's possible Hulu picks up the series to allow its continuation.

Netflix, the go-to channel for pyjama-wearing binge-watchers, already shows reruns of the comedy cop series, but now the Hollywood Reporter claims it has expressed an interest in taking over Nine-Nine and creating new seasons to air, as it has done previously with shows like Arrested Development and Black Mirror. Melissa Fumero, Stephanie Beatriz, Chelsea Peretti, Joel McKinnon Miller, Joe Lo Truglio, Terry Crews and Dirk Blocker played the other members of the Nine-Nine.

You can now binge watch 110 episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine on Hulu. Plus, both shows are produced by Universal Television, part of the same corporate family as Hulu.

Fox cancelled Brooklyn Nine-Nine after the show's fifth season only averaged 1.75 million viewers and a 0.73 rating in the 18-49 demographic. Fortunately it might find a saving grace with Hulu, Netflix, and more.

"Hey everyone, just wanted to say no big deal but".

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" starred co-writer Andy Samberg, formerly of "Saturday Night Live", and Andre Braugher, and aired for five seasons.

Though it might seem like an unlikely home for the show, it would actually make sense for the cable network to take a chance on it.

Other early cancellations include Fox's The Last Man on Earth and The Mick (The Mick had been expected to return back in early April); and CBS freshman comedies 9JKL and Living Biblically. There are only two more episodes left - "White Whale" on Sunday, May 13 at 7:30 p.m. ET and "Jake & Amy" on May 20.

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

Newer episodes of all three shows are also available to stream on Fox. Plus, the platform has a successful track record of reviving Fox/UTV comedies after it swooped in for The Mindy Project with a multi-season order after Fox gave it the ax.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine isn't the only show on Fox to get the axe, unfortunately.

Hulu, Netflix and TBS were also said to be among those outlets who reached out to Universal TV after the cancellation.
