Fox calls time on Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Brooklyn Nine-Nine has aired for five seasons

US broadcast network Fox has cancelled a raft of comedies including long-running police series Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Along with the Andy Samberg- and Terry Crews-starring series, which has run for five seasons, Fox has cancelled Kaitlin Olson’s two-season show The Mick and post-apocalyptic sitcom The Last Man on Earth, which has aired for four seasons.

Following the news, fans took to Twitter to express their dissatisfaction at the decision to cancel Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which is produced by Universal Television. Lin-Manuel Miranda, creator of hit musical Hamilton, was among the high-profile detractors, posting the tweet below.

In related news, Fox has picked up a multi-camera comedy from actor and comedian Lil Rel Howery. Rel follows the title character, a prideful self-made success trying to rebuild his life after his self-confident attitude is rocked by the discovery his wife is having an affair with his barber.

The series is written and exec produced by Howery, Kevin Barnett and Josh Rabinowitz, with showrunner Mike Scully and Jerrod Carmichael also exec producing.

Additionally, Fox has renewed musical drama Star for a third season. The series, which centres on a female musical trio trying to make it in the music business, is produced by 20th Century Fox Television in association with creator and exec producer Lee Daniels’ shingle Lee Daniels Entertainment.
