Just like their fans, the cast of Brooklyn Nine-Nine was shocked by NBC’s decision to rescue the veteran cop comedy.
Actor Melissa Fumero, who plays the role of Amy Santiago on the show, told Entertainment Weekly, “We heard the news, we were all really sad, and then Twitter exploded, and we were shocked by that, and just so.. having all the feelings.”
“When there were rumours began that the show might find a new home, we were just kind of like, ‘I don’t know if this is really going to happen,’ and I didn’t think NBC — network to network — that’s, like, unheard of. And then it came in an email, like this happened.”
After five seasons, cult cop comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine was cancelled by Fox after which NBC decided to pick it up for season six.
