Brooklyn Nine-Nine Co-Creator Says Fans Will 'Riot' If Show Gets Cancelled

If Brooklyn Nine-Nine gets cancelled, the news would hit co-creator Dan Goor like a city bus. (Too soon?)

Discussing the Andy Samberg comedy’s uncertain future with TVLine, Goor says that fans are “going to riot” if the Nine-Nine doesn’t return to active duty for Season 5.

“[Fans] are going to find the presidents of Fox and they are going to deface their houses,” he says with a laugh. “No, I’m kidding. Probably shouldn’t say that… I know would riot. I would be very upset.”

Brooklyn Nine-Nine — which returns after a four-month hiatus on Tuesday, April 11 (8/7c) — is one of a handful of Fox sitcoms (including New Girl and The Last Man on Earth) that has not yet been renewed for the 2017-2018 season, which may prove to be a problem. Known for ending each season on a cliffhanger, it doesn’t sound as though Goor & Co. have any intention of tying up loose ends in the Season 4 finale.

“If you’re asking if we wrote a potential series finale, we did not,” he stresses. “We do not want this to be the series finale.”

Goor, however, remains confident that Detective Jake Peralta will not be forced into an early retirement.

“We’ve received a tremendous amount of support from the network, and I’m sure our pickup will be coming at any point.”

Will you be devastated if Brooklyn Nine-Nine comes to a premature end this spring?
