Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans are angry that the popular show is coming to an end, calling the move a “mistake”.
Fox says the final episode of the fifth and final season will air later this month.
Cast members have thanked fans for an outpouring of support following the show’s cancellation, which was reportedly due to a drop in ratings.
Celebrities like Lin-Manuel Miranda have joined calls on social media for the show to be renewed.
The show, which developed a cult following after launching in September 2013, has been praised for its “intersectional representation” and “inclusive humour”.
It stars Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher, and follows a team of detectives in the New York City Police Department.
Online reaction to the news ranged from shock to disappointment.
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!! #saveb99

#Brooklyn99 is not only the most consistently good television show currently airing but it’s one of the most consistent TV shows EVER. There is no other show that makes me genuinely laugh out loud multiple times per episode. #RenewBrooklyn99

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is not only the FUNNIEST show on TV, it’s also a NECESSARY show with its diverse cast tackling topics like sexuality and profiling.

Many fans are hoping another network might pick the show up.
If Brooklyn Nine-Nine doesn’t get picked up by another network or Netflix/Hulu, I hope everyone who worked on the show, from writer to actor, looks at Twitter today and sees how much people loved their show, and that the show had an impact on people’s lives. #Brooklyn99

Brooklyn Nine-Nine is the second longest-running live action Fox comedy after New Girl.
Despite a 100% critics’ rating on Rotten Tomatoes, as well as a 95% audience score, there were rumours that its network ratings were sliding.
The series finale will air on 20 May in the US. E4 is still airing the remainder of the fifth season in the UK.
