Fans will be able to watch the sixth season on the streaming service next fall, assuming that's when the new season premieres. Adding Brooklyn Nine-Nine to its comedy block next year could bring the network closer to the era when 30 Rock, The Office, Parks and Recreation and Community were on the air than it has been in several years.
We jumped on it really quickly and are thrilled to have it and think it fits into our brand of comedy in many ways better than it fit into Fox's brand of comedy.
"We own it. It's one of few comedies in recent years to have a really robust worldwide number, a syndication upside which a lot of shows don't have anymore". Roseanne's success hinted to the network that there was still a market for that style of comedy series featuring one or two big-name comedians, like Roseanne Barr or, in Last Man Standing's case, Tim Allen.
NBC will bow one new comedy this fall; I Feel Bad, a single-camera comedy executive produced by Amy Poehler and inspired by Orli Auslander's book.
To make room for the fresh inventory, some old shows have to go.
But then the clouds parted. the sun came out, the birds started singing, and a miracle happened - NBC told NBCUniversal television Distribution (both subsidiaries of Kabletown, as I understand it) that they'd be happy giving it a new home.

As of a year ago the UN Security Council sanctions included measures on sectors such as coal, fish, textiles and overseas workers. Banks says it remains to be seen whether the talks with Kim Jong Un will produce a deal and what it will involve.
During Fox's upfront press call on Monday, execs were also asked about canceling "Lucifer". We wanted to give Bob's Burgers an opportunity to have a plum time period and really grow.
"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" will air midseason, but Greenblatt said the network has not figured out exactly where it will land on the schedule. The network has now picked up the show for season six.
Plus, don't forget that the writing was on the wall for a long time with Brooklyn Nine-Nine - there was talk that it might not last beyond its fifth series a full year ago - so NBC had plenty of time to see this coming and figure something out.
The good news is James has time for "Paul Blart: Mall Cop 3", which his fans have been demanding. "It's a really amusing show..."
"[The show] drew 8.5 million viewers every Friday night with very little promotion". No (although yes). The truth is a little more complicated, because NBC always had first dibs.
The cast of the show has also gushed about the renewal on social media. Warner Bros., which produces the show, decided not to renew the contract of Clayne Crawford, who'd costarred as Martin Riggs, following what the Hollywood Reporter describes as "a string of behavior issues on the set." We can't thank you - or @NBC - enough.
