News broke this week that Fox has cancelled Brooklyn 99, The Mick, and Last Man on Earth after firing the lead actor on Lethal Weapon. We’re not sure what the network is thinking as they make these decisions, but we witnessed their mistake regarding B99 as fans and celebrities reacted. Andy Samberg’s hilarious police comedy will end after five seasons due to lack of ratings.
This show has been an amazing example of diversity among the other shows competing with it and it’s so funny. The cast shares great chemistry which only allows the show to shine more as we’ve watched, these last five years. Andy Samberg, Terry Crews, Stephanie Beatriz, Melissa Fumero, Joe Lo Truglio, Chelsea Peretti, Andre Braugher, Dirk Blocker, and Joel McKinnon Miller are an outstanding group of actors who have brought us the most amazing television comedy since The Office and Parks and Rec. Creator Dan Goor is the man behind this show and we can only thank him for the laughs and hope that someone picks up the show and lets it live on.
Celebrities were among those mourning the end of Brooklyn 99 after the news broke. Take a look:
Oh NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!! ???????????????? I'm SO not ready to say #ByeBye99. Be forewarned @FOXTV-when networks dump shows I love, I'm known for holding grudges a long, L-O-N-G time. I'm still mad @CBS didn't renew #SquarePegs! ????#EverythingILikeGetsCancelled https://t.co/NEry6Hrpng— Mark Hamill (@HamillHimself) May 10, 2018
Here’s the thing about Brooklyn 99 being cancelled, I don’t want it to be. I love all of those people & they earned the right 2 have a final season victory lap where I could emotionally prepare. Don’t know them. Have nothing 2 do with the show. I’m just a fan who deserves better.— Sean Astin (@SeanAstin) May 11, 2018
I can't pretend to understand how some shows stay on the air and others don't. Cancelling @Brooklyn99FOX makes no sense. @djgoor brought us a show with so much heart and soul and that's not easy to find these days. :( #Brooklyn99— Jim O'Heir (@JimOHeir) May 10, 2018
I love you fans. I love you squad. It has been an incredible five years. I’m so very lucky, so deeply thankful to have been part of a show that has brought so much joy to so many. NINE-NINE!?? #Brooklyn99 #renewB99— JoeLoTruglio (@JoeLoTruglio) May 10, 2018

Upate: NBC has saved Brooklyn 99 and picked up the show for its sixth season! This is reason to celebrate!
