Fans just got their wish that another network would save TV comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine after Fox canceled the series this week.

Will anyone answer the 911 call and save beloved police sitcom Brooklyn Nine-Nine? That question had fans of the beloved police sitcom on a roller-coaster ride the last couple of days.

Friday, they got their answer when NBC announced it would pick up the canceled Fox show for a 13-episode sixth season. 

“Ever since we sold this show to Fox I’ve regretted letting it get away, and it’s high time it came back to its rightful home,” Robert Greenblatt, chairman of NBC Entertainment, said in a statement. 

Fans flooded Twitter with pleas for another network to rescue the show after news hit Thursday that Fox axed it. They expressed hope Hulu would save Brooklyn Nine-Nine like it did another fan-favorite previously canceled by Fox, The Mindy Project.  

While Hulu decided not to pick up the canceled comedy, as TV Line reported on Friday, some still hoped TBS might be another contender. TBS picked up off-network rights to syndicate the comedy back in December. 

Then came the news NBC was swooping in to save the show. 

Brooklyn Nine-Nine stars Andy Samberg, Andre Braugher, Melissa Fumero, Stephanie Beatriz, Chelsea Peretti, Joe Lo Truglio, Terry Crews, Dirk Blocker and Joel McKinnon Miller. It isn’t just hilarious, it also tackles important topics such as racial profiling, sexuality and gun violence in the US.
