FOX has done it again.

After moving Brooklyn Nine-Nine to a new time slot (never a good sign), the network has announced that they are officially canceling the beloved sitcom. And the reactions were swift.

The series has won multiple awards for its groundbreaking comedy, from the Emmys to GLAAD Media Awards. Witty and relevant, the show also manages to tackle heavy topics on a weekly basis. The show is stuffed full of a hilarious and diverse cast, both in character and out. Pretty much anything every other show does wrong, Brooklyn Nine-Nine does right with ease.  

The show has been especially noteworthy for, among other things, an amazing approach to LGBT representation. The stereotype defining Captain Holt (played by Andre Keith Braugher, who won an Emmy for the role), and kickass bi lady Rosa Diaz (played by the amazing Stephanie Beatriz, who is bi herself!) are in the main cast, and Holt's husband Kevin is a regular guest. It also has a 95% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, a score it’s generally held since it’s start.

But don't fret too much. Brooklyn Nine-Nine is already being courted by pretty much everyone. Netlfix has already started openly courting the fanbase, and multiple other networks have some (potentially hopeful) connections to the show, like Hulu, who currently has the streaming rights.

This isn’t the first time the channel has notoriously cancelled a show before it’s time. In 2003 they canceled the fan favorite Firefly, a space western created by a Joss Whedon while still in his prime. To this day, the die hard fans are notorious for their loud want for a continuation, even getting the movie Serenity off the ground and making it fairly successful. In the same year, they canceled Futurama, an incredibly smart comedy that was later brought back to life by Comedy Central. Like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Futurama has won multiple awards, including six Emmys and a Nebula. Definitely something you wanna cancel.

We’ll fight for you, Terry!!
