‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ Season 5: Renewed or Cancelled at Fox? | TVLine

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 I 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.”

The first same-sex wedding on U.S. television – network TV, at that – aired on the Fox sitcom Roc way back in 1991. The Season One episode “Can’t Help Loving That Man,” focuses on Roc’s uncle (Shaft’s Richard Roundtree) revealing he’s gay, and the family’s subsequent struggle to accept his lifestyle, ultimately culminating with Roc (Charles S. Dutton) hosting the ceremony in his home. The episode took home a GLAAD award that year for the positive portrayal.

a note: the family’s subsequent struggle was really only one family member, his brother. His nephews were basically shocked and uncomfortable at first but came around quickly because, as they simply put it, it’s what made their uncle happy. His niece (the title character’s wife) was immediately accepting.  The only one who acted up was his brother…who eventually came around by the end of the episode. 

also… this is the cast of Roc

the FIRST same sex wedding on U.S. tv was delivered by a Black cast.

AND it was an interracial wedding.

deal with it.

you can watch the episode here (it’s the first one):


“There are places I remember
All my life, though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remainAll these places had their moments
With lovers and friends
I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I’ve loved them allBut of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something newThough I know I’ll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I’ll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more"
