    I've yet to watch the 3rd season but wow. Cancelling Dark Matter was one thing but this is next level stupid.

    The loss of B99 was a huge blow to me and the fiance.

    We're both in love with Holt. It doesn't matter what he says, we're in stitches.

    Netflix already air it over here, along with co-producing The Expanse. Could be good for both shows.

    Congratulations! When is the big day?

    Why couldn't you love Arrow or the Netflix-Marvel shows also.

    We're not actually engaged lol.

    I jokingly call her that, or sometimes "the wife" just because we're practically married. I did buy a ring, but I'm not going to propose until like next year.

    Arrow, I get.

    Why the Netflix Marvel shows too? Aside from Iron Shit and The Defenders, hasn't every other series been worth the watch?

    I'm disappointed in the Lucifer cancellation was enjoying it just read the season finale ends in big cliffhanger.

    I’m surprised Lucifer got cancelled, that sucks.

    Just heard the guy who plays Riggs in lethal weapon is apparently fired. This week just keeps getting worse.

    It’s TV cancellation season and I hate everything and everyone. But Fox most of all.

    That is all.

    But Brooklyn 9-9 will continue on NBC, so it's not that big of a deal after all.
    I was kind of expecting that The Mick would be cancelled although I did enjoy it very much.

    Brooklyn Nine-Nine Officially Revived for 13-Episode Sixth Season at NBC

    [​IMG]

    It's official: NBC has revived Brooklyn Nine-Nine for a 13-episode sixth season.

    The abbreviated pickup comes a day after Fox shockingly canceled the Universal Television-produced single-camera comedy after five seasons. Universal TV, the vertically aligned studio which produced the Mike Schur and Dan Goor comedy, received almost immediate calls from mulitple outlets to potentially revive the series.

    NBC was among those outlets that expressed interest in a potential sixth season given the show's ownership structure and the outcry that ensued as the Andy Samberg comedy's cancellation became a worldwide trending topic on Twitter.

    Hulu, Netflix and TBS were also said to be among those outlets who reached out to Universal TV after the cancellation. A day later, a potential revival looked bleak after Hulu — which retains SVOD rights to Brooklyn — and Netflix both passed on a potential sixth season.

    Hours later, NBC swooped in to renew the Golden Globe-winning series for an abbreviated 13-episode season in one of the biggest stories of the 2018 Upfronts.

    “Ever since we sold this show to Fox I’ve regretted letting it get away, and it’s high time it came back to its rightful home,” said Robert Greenblatt, NBC Entertainment chairman. “Mike Schur, Dan Goor and Andy Samberg grew up on NBC and we’re all thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest and best-cast comedies in a long time will take its place in our comedy lineup. I speak for everyone at NBC, here’s to the Nine-Nine!”

    Schur and Goor — who were college roommates — both exec produced NBC hit Parks and Recreation, with Schur having also worked on The Office. And Samberg rocketed to fame on the network's star-making Saturday Night Live.

    "Hey everyone, just wanted to say no big deal but .... NBC JUST PICKED #BROOKLYN99 UP FOR SEASON 6!!! Thanks in no small part to you, the best fans in the history of the world! Nine-nine!!!!!!!!!" showrunner Goor wrote late Friday night on Twitter.

    For Schur, meanwhile, he will now have three comedies on NBC's 2018-19 broadcast schedule with Brooklynjoining returning entry The Good Place and newly ordered Abby's. All three are produced by Universal TV (where Shur is under an overall deal), Dr. Goor Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment.

    This is the second year in a row that NBC has delivered an Upfront surprise. Last year, the network canceled Timeless only to reverse course days later following an empassioned pitch from producers Sony Pictures Television (and an outpouring of support on social media). In that case, Sony TV gave up a large piece of ownership on the Shawn Ryan drama in exchange for an abbreviated-episode renewal. (And in Brooklyn's case, NBC owns the show.) The Brooklyn deal echoes a similar move from Universal TV in 2015 when Fox canceled the studio's The Mindy Project after three seasons. Universal TV then successfully sold the show to Hulu, where it would go on to run for three more seasons. (The studio also took The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt to Netflix — where it scored a two-season order — after NBC decided it was too niche for broadcast.)

    For its part, Fox canceled Brooklynamong several others — as the network changes course amid the pending $52.4 bilion sale of assets including its studio to Disney. Following the sale, which is expected to gain regulatory approval, the network wil court a broad demographic with a roster of newly ordered procedurals and multicamera comedies while also itself reviving Last Man Standing a year after ABC's shocking cancellation.

    I love DD season one, liked season two. The rest of the Netflix-Marvel shows are just garbage. Dull, boring garbage. Okay I'm exaggerating but they're still dull, repetitive and tedious to finish.

    Now, if they could renew Agents of Shield, that would be great.
