Fox Boss on the BROOKLYN NINE-NINE Cancellation

May 14, 2018 by  

In the aftermath of the pre-Upfronts cancellation bloodbath, one semi-unexpected cut seemed to sting particularly deep: Fox’s cancellation of BROOKLYN NINE-NINE. Celebrities from Lin-Manuel Miranda to Mark Hamill tweeted their support as NBC was quietly working out a deal to save the series.

But what put the show on Fox’s cutting block in the first place? “I think it was based on a variety of factors,” Dana Walden, co-Chairmen and CEO, Fox Television Group, told reporters. “Those were great creators, it was a phenomenal cast…they told a lot of shows. Ultimately, we felt we didn’t have the exact right place to schedule it this year.”

With football taking over all of Thursday, the network had two less hours available to schedule each week. And though the show had success on Sundays, “we wanted to give BOB’S BURGERS the opportunity to have a plum time period and really grow,” Walden said. “We just didn’t have room for it.”

That being said, the powers that be at the network holds no grudges over it hopping over to NBC.”We’re really happy it found a new home,” Walden said. We assumed it would. I’m really happy for that whole team.”
