"This is a motherloving outrage"
Brooklyn Nine Nine fans have expressed their anger after it was confirmed that the acclaimed cop comedy won’t be returning for a sixth season.
The show, which debuted in 2013, starred an ensemble cast featuring the likes of Andy Samberg, Terry Crews and Andre Braugher.
But while it won three Golden Globes and two Emmy Nominations since making its debut, it’s now been confirmed that Fox is pulling the plug on the acclaimed sitcom.
Posting on Twitter, one fan described the decision as an “outrage”.
“Brooklyn Nine Nine is one of the finest things on telly and this is a motherloving outrage”, one viewer wrote.
US writer Jomny Sun also hailed the show’s lauded diversity – with LGBTQ and ethnic minority characters playing a heavy part in the show.
“I really adore brooklyn nine-nine. I am grateful for its intersectional representation of queer people and people of color, the casual ways it addresses and deconstructs masculinity and institutional oppression, and its inclusive humor. and all in a network show!!”, Sun wrote.
Other high-profile critics of the decision included Star Wars icon Mark Hamill and Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.
And while other fans led calls for a Netflix revival of the show, co-creator Dan Goor hailed fans for the “outpouring” of love.
“Wow. Thank you all for this incredible outpouring of support.
#brooklyn99 fans are the best fans in the world. It means the world to me and everyone else who works on the show”, he wrote.
