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

Get More: Renewals

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)

    • 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.

      • 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.

  • Great news. I’m really enjoying the show so far as it was not something I expected to enjoy when I decided to watch the pilot.

  • I’ve been surfing online greater than 3 hours today, but I by no means discovered
    any fascinating article like yours. It is beautiful worth sufficient for me.
    In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you did, the
    internet can be a lot more helpful than ever before.

  • Brooklyn nine nine is a great new show to kick of fox’s fall line up. i hope with these additional new extra episodes, fox producers will see how much viewers enjoy this funny TV series and pick it up for a full 25 + second season
