NBC explains why it saved Brooklyn Nine-Nine

The comedy series on which Crews stars as Sgt. Terry Jeffords was saved from an untimely death by NBC after it was canceled by Fox on Thursday

Rumours started to swirl that another network would pick the show up for a sixth season immediately following its cancellation.

There was a campaign to renew the series led under the Twitter hashtags #SaveB99 and #RenewB99, while Terry Crews went as far as to credit Mark Hamill's Jedi powers as the driving force behind its salvation.

After its cancellations at Fox, cop comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been revived at NBC for a 13-episode sixth season.

"Now we get the news from FOX that it's time to get back out on that diamond - hell yes, I'm excited!"

On the other hand, NBC is already home to one Mike Schur comedy: The Good Place.

Enter NBC, a network that needed some form of redemption after it effectively did to Community on an annual basis what Fox did to Brooklyn Nine-Nine recently.

Throughout its run, the show garnered critical praise and a cult following, but for networks, ratings are everything, and this show wasn't a particular heavy-hitter when it came to that department - the fifth season averaged only 2.7 million viewers and a 1.2 rating in the key 18-to-49-year-old demographic, a slight drop from season 4's 2.9 million average, as Entertainment Weekly reports.

To date, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is Fox's second longest-running live-action comedy after New Girl.

"I'm obviously hopeful. I love making it".

"We jumped on it really quickly and are thrilled to have it and think it fits into our brand of comedy in many ways better than it fit into Fox's brand of comedy".

Rumours of Brooklyn Nine-Nine's demise were greatly exagg.well, they were exactly right actually. It will air May 20.
