Everyone’s talking about: Brooklyn 99


Yep. Everyone is devo after Fox decided to cancel the show.

HOWEVER, all is not lost – there’s rumblings that streaming giant Hulu could be set to revive the show.

Hulu, which currently owns the SVOD rights to the series, and Universal Television are in contact about the possibility of reviving the series, though any talk would be considered extremely preliminary. Another outlet or two has also expressed interest, according to one source.
