Following the amazing news how NBC have picked up Brooklyn Nine-Nine for a new series, the cast have all responded in the best way possible.
Ok well probably not the best ever – I’m guessing your version of the best ever and my version, differ quite drastically. But still, it’s pretty awesome!
A decline in viewer ratings were believed to be the reason as to why Fox chose not to progress with season six of the Golden Globe-winning series – despite the show’s rave reviews and cult following.
However, according to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC swooped in to renew, after Hulu, Netflix and TBS all passed on a potential sixth season.
Robert Greenblatt, NBC Entertainment Chairman said of the news:
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.
Mike Schur, Dan Goor and Andy Samberg grew up on NBC and we’re all thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest and best-cast comedies in a long time will take its place in our comedy lineup. I speak for everyone at NBC, here’s to the Nine-Nine!
Andy Samberg tweeted to his 500,000+ followers in the early hours of this morning, (May 12) to make the ‘happy’ announcement, writing:
So happy to announce:
NBC IS PICKING UP BROOKLYN 99 for SEASON !!!
This was followed up with another tweet which thanked everyone for their ‘crazy outpouring of support’, before tweeting again, this time, getting Hulk Hogan involved.
Who’d have thought Detective Jake Peralta was a Hulkamaniac:
Melissa Fumero, who plays the fan-favourite Detective Amy Santiago, used a number of memes to express her delight.
She tweeted a clip – featuring another character from the show – which contained the caption:
If I had a mic right now, I’d drop it.
Her meme was accompanied with a tweet which read:
#Brooklyn99 IS COMING BACK FOR SEASON 6 YOU GUYS ON NBC!!!!! You did this!! You got loud and you were heard and you saved our show!! Thank you!! Thank you to NBC!! NINE NINE!!!!!

Detective Charles Boyle, played by Joe Lo Truglio, followed in similar fashion, with his tweet.
No caption was needed for this little gem:
Probably everyone’s favourite Sergeant, Terry Jeffords, played by the loveable Terry Crews, tweeted his thanks and appreciation, and of course, included a little humour from the show.
Initially he wrote: ‘YOU DID IT INTERNET’, which was then followed by a simple: ‘NINE NINE!!!!’ before finishing off with:
WE ARE BACK! @NBC PICKED US UP FOR A 6TH SEASON!!!???????????
THANK YOU INTERNET!!!!!!!!!!!!

Santiago, sorry Melissa Fumero, tweeted a whole heap of tweets – clearly excited.
Perhaps my favourite is the one she used of herself – check it out below:
To finish off, we have everyone’s favourite sardonic civilian administrator, Gina Linetti, played by the amazing Chelsea Peretti.
Instead of using the cast in her tweets, she chose a different kind of star…
