Thank you all for this incredible outpouring of support. #brooklyn99 fans are the best fans in the world. It means the world to me and everyone else who works on the show.”
Among those in grief over the cancelation are many celebrity fans including Lin-Manuel Miranda and Star Wars legend Mark Hamill who tweeted, “When networks dump show I love, I’m known for holding grudges a long, L-O-N-G time. I’m still mad CBS didn’t renew #SquarePegs,” referring to the 1982 comedy starring Sarah Jessica Parker and Amy Linker.
Miranda tweeted, “RENEW BROOKLYN NINE NINE. I ONLY WATCH LIKE 4 THINGS. THIS IS ONE OF THE THINGS #RenewB99.”
