Keep Hope Alive: BROOKLYN NINE-NINE Could Head to Hulu

The final season of that show aired past year. One of its rebirths, The Mindy Project, a previous victim of Fox, did well on Hulu after the streaming service took over.

The Hollywood Reporter adds that NBC and TBS are also stepping up as possible contenders to acquire the program due to the massive outpouring of fan malaise.

There's also a possibility that NBC becomes involved due to the network owning Universal TV.

TBS is another option if Hulu doesn't bite.

Usually I would make mention of "jumping the shark" here, as shows which resolve their characters' long-running sexual tension tend to take a nosedive in quality, but Brooklyn Nine-Nine - to give very due credit - had avoided that fate admirably.

Universal Television company declined to comment on THR's report.

In any event, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is becoming more emblematic of the benefits of a Peak TV universe where it's become easier for a canceled series or passed-over pilot to find new life outside of the outlet for whom it was developed.

We're a little biased, so we hope Netflix picks up the series for more episodes. After all, Fox itself is reviving ABC's Last Man Standing, which was produced by sister 20th Century Fox.
