Exclusive: Fox's Brooklyn Nine-Nine Gets Order For More Scripts -- Full-Season Pickup Next?

Brooklyn Nine-NineIt’s not a back-nine order, but it’s the next best thing.

Fox has commissioned several additional scripts of its rookie Andy Samberg comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, TVLine has learned exclusively.

The well-reviewed police satire drew a solid 6 million viewers and a 2.5 demo rating in its debut last month. Its ratings have since tapered off as its Tuesday competition has increased (in its most recent outing it notched 3.4 mil/1.4).

Earlier this week, Fox extended a huge vote of confidence to fellow freshman series Sleepy Hollow when it renewed the fantasy drama for a second season.

    Great news! It’s not the best comedy out there, but it’s definitely a solid player, and an enjoyable 22 or so minutes. (DVR ftw)

    • ScrubsGuy says:

      It’s definitely enjoyable, but I hope it doesn’t get the Ben & Kate treatment; they got additional script orders last year, but didn’t even end up shooting all of them and got cancelled unceremoniously. Also, I think Brooklyn 99 is also in the same time slot.

      • Drew Melbourne says:

        Well, presumably the point of giving an order for additional scripts rather than a full pick up is they’re giving themselves the opportunity to do just that.

  2. Zach says:

    Give it the back 9!
