It is a dark day for comedy lovers, as FOX announces the cancelation of three sitcoms, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Last Man on Earth, and The Mick.

The shows ran five, four and two seasons respectively, but will not return for the 2018-19 television season.

In an interview with TVGuide, co-creator Dan Goor admitted that the live ratings aren't great - but Fox executives consider more than just traditional TV numbers, particularly in this era of on-demand and streaming. "It means the world to me and everyone else who works on the show". Now is not a good time to be a critically acclaimed comedy on Fox, and fans know it. "NINE-NINE", Jo Lo Truglio, who played Boyle, wrote. Even though it was on the bubble for renewal, it was expected to get picked up, but Fox gave it the axe Thursday.


The network had been squarely behind the Kaitlin Olson-starrer since the beginning, giving The Mick a NFL-boosted series premiere and extending its first season despite a midseason premiere. The show had been on the bubble a year ago but managed to secure a fifth season in the last hour.

Jake (Andy Samberg) and Amy's (Melissa Fumero) wedding on Brooklyn Nine-Nine was supposed to be a happy occasion, but an uninvited guest has shown up to put a damper on things.

Fans, including celebrities, of the show were also crushed by the news of its cancellation. Cast members, producers, and famous fans including Lin-Manuel Miranda, Seth Meyers and Mark Hamill are sharing their sadness on Brooklyn's ending after five seasons.
