Cast members of the cult classic Brooklyn Nine-Nine TV show have thanked fans for their support, as it was revealed that Fox would not be renewing it for another season. The network has said that the final season will air later this month.

The show starred the likes of Andy Samberg, Terry Crews, Melissa Fumero and Joe Lo Truglio.

Joe, who played the lovably weird Charles Boyle said on Twitter:

Melissa Fumero, who plays the work conscious Amy Santiago said that starring in the show had been ‘huge honour’.

Terry Crews’ tribute was a simple ‘thank you’ with the crying emoji:

The show was a consistently funny and light-hearted comedy, which nailed the balance between things like race, representation and humour. The Nine-Nine’s captain, Raymond Holt, played by Andre Braugher, is probably one of the best portrayed gay characters on screen ever.

Fans agreed completely, stating on Twitter:

There are however rumours that the show could be picked up by a different network. Hulu and Netflix have both been named as likely successors. The first four seasons are on Netflix currently. If you haven’t seen it, we highly recommend you do.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is the second longest-running live action show on Fox after New Girl, which was awful by the way. Fox consistently cancels good shows in favour of cheaper, easier to write shows. Just look at Firefly.

Despite a 100% critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes and a hefty 95% audience score, there were some rumours that ratings were slipping slightly.

The season five finale will air on 20th may.

We hope this wonderful show finds a new home, because of the cast, the crew and the love that surrounds this silly cop comedy-drama. Fingers crossed for Netflix to swoop in and save the day.

To the Nine-Nine!
