Fox Gives ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ a Full Season Order


Fox announced today that they’ve ordered nine more episodes of the Andy Samberg cop comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine, bringing the show’s total episode order for the first season to 22 and ensuring that it will be around for the whole season. Fox will also be airing a new episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine in a coveted post-Super Bowl slot, along with New Girl, in February.

Created by Parks and Recreation team Mike Schur and Dan Goor, Brooklyn Nine-Nine premiered on Fox last month and has been struggling in the ratings a little bit despite critical acclaim (it’s our favorite new show of the season). While Brooklyn is underperforming a bit, it may be because of its weak lead-in, Fox’s other new fall comedy Dads, which has yet to be picked up for the back half of the season.
