NBC explains why it saved Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans were not happy when Fox made the announcement that the show was being canceled after season five.

"Ever since we sold this show to Fox I've regretted letting it get away, and it's high time it came back to its rightful home", said Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment.

I've gathered a few of the better responses from fans on Twitter to showcase their voice in a time they really need to be heard.

"It's also one of the few comedies in recent years that does a robust global number, and it has a syndication upside, which a lot of shows don't have anymore".

Fans quickly started a social media campaign to save the show, which premiered in 2013, and enjoyed support from several famous faces, including Oscar-winning director Guillermo del Toro, who described its cast of characters as "beautiful, powerful, flawed" and "fully human". Thank you! Thank you to NBC!

"TERRY LOVES NBC", and "YOU DID IT INTERNET!"

"It was great to know the fans were outraged, but we were too", he confessed.

Enter NBC, a network that needed some form of redemption after it effectively did to Community on an annual basis what Fox did to Brooklyn Nine-Nine recently. "It wouldn't have happened without you".

Numerous show's ensemble cast celebrated the revival news. "A lot of people went to bat for us like Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Hamill, Sean Astin".

ABC denied Allen's political views played a role in its decision, saying the show's cancellation was motivated by "business and scheduling reasons". "THIS IS ONE OF THE THINGS", Miranda said in a post, as the hashtags #SaveB99 and #RenewB99 ricocheted around Twitter. Meanwhile, Hamill stated, "I'm SO not ready to say #ByeBye99 ... when networks dump shows I love, I'm known for holding grudges a long, L-O-N-G time".

The current season of the sitcom is scheduled to air its finale - the show's 112th episode - on May 20.
