Celebrities are crestfallen over 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' cancellation

Universal TV, which owns the rights to Brooklyn Nine-Nine, is reportedly receiving calls from Hulu, Netflix, NBC, and TBS about bringing the show back.

In addition to fan outrage, celebrities like Lin-Manuel Miranda, Seth Meyers, Mark Hamill and Sean Astin, just to name a few, also added their anger online about the show's unexpected cancellation. All five seasons of the series are available to stream on Hulu right now. Although Fox has a history of creating lackluster one-and-done television shows, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is not one of those. The series was Fox's second longest-running live-action sitcom, second only to New Girl, which will also end its well-received run at the conclusion of this season.

Warning: Contains spoilers for Brooklyn Nine-Nine's fifth season. Like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, these series had off-network deals that make prolonging their run profitable for the parent company of the the producing studio and its sibling network that is taking in the cancelled show.

We've recently seen Ubisoft tease more Splinter Cell with the induction of Sam Fisher into the world of Ghost Recon Wildlands . Dragon Quest 2 is one we can't be sure about as it doesn't fit with the current naming conventions used in the series.

The idea of Brooklyn Nine-Nine getting revived by a rival network is not outlandish. For instance, season five introduced a well-known character discovering that she is bisexual.

Co-creator Dan Goor acknowledged the loss on Twitter, thanking people for an "incredible outpouring of support". Melissa Fumero (Amy), Stephanie Beatriz (Rosa) and Joe LoTruglio (Charles) have all made statements on Twitter about the show. The beloved comedy had meant so much for fans, especially with its reputation of portraying race, gender and sexuality better than most TV shows out there.
