why are people speculating that b99 may be cancelled? Does it have low view ratings? I basically just finished the latest episode, and one of the reasons why I love this show so much is that despite it being a comedy they bring up serious issues like this PLUS when they do they don't overdramatise as well as being able to keep the humour at a moderate level that it doesn't take attention away to whatever issue that they are focusing on.
strap yourself in for a reasonably lengthy answer because i don’t know how to make this short & sweet!
the fact it still hasn’t been renewed for a fifth season yet is ridiculously concerning. filming for the season four finale finished what, like a month or so ago? i think we all thought that by now season five would have been locked in but fox are being major dicks and making us sweat. i don’t know how the ratings work over in the states(maybe someone can shed some light on this?) but i can’t stress this enough - it’s SUCH an important show and it does bring up social issues but you’re right, they’re so careful with how they do it, they mix the seriousness with a little bit of comedy and make it work. there has never been another tv show like this and fox would be making a massive mistake by letting it end so prematurely when they could definitely get at least another two seasons out of it. if one show had to be sacrificed then throw new girl away(no offence to any fans of the show), i’ve seen so many people say that it’s starting to settle down and it’s seeming like where its at is a good place to end it. there’s too many storylines in brooklyn nine nine that need to continue being worked on. dan goor even said that they didn’t film the season four finale as the series finale - that itself should be enough of a sign for fox to give them the green light. i dunno man i just never want this show to end, hopefully a renewal comes super soon!
