Fox to add Tim Allen's 'Last Man Standing' to fall lineup

Fox, ABC and NBC Cancel More Shows

This current season - just days away from completion - has seen big numbers for NBC.

The ensemble cast in "The Last Man on Earth" has consistently been one of the strongest and most overlooked casts on television.

"Hamilton" creator Lin Manuel-Miranda tweeted, "RENEW BROOKLYN NINE NINE I ONLY WATCH LIKE 4 THINGS THIS IS ONE OF THE THINGS #RenewB99", while Oscar-winning director Guillermo del Toro called the show "majestic".

He said he believes it's a better fit for NBC's brand of comedy than it ever was for Fox.

Numerous show's ensemble cast celebrated the revival news. Roseanne's success hinted to the network that there was still a market for that style of comedy series featuring one or two big-name comedians, like Roseanne Barr or, in Last Man Standing's case, Tim Allen. Netflix, Hulu, TBS and NBC reached to Universal TV with the interest of picking up the series for new seasons.

"I got my start at NBC at "SNL" and I've always considered it home", Samberg said after joining fellow "Saturday Night Live" alum and "Late Night" host Seth Meyers Monday on stage at New York's Radio City Music Hall for NBC's annual upfront presentation of its new shows to advertisers.

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" has been renewed by NBC for a sixth season after being cancelled by Fox. "Ultimately we decided we just didn't have room for it and were trying we're really happy its found a new home".

Fox also has little to lose - besides its reputation as the place where young people go to laugh.

"We made a decision this year, which was we wanted to give 'Bob's Burgers, ' an Emmy-winning huge performer for us, an opportunity to have a primetime period and to really grow", said Walden.

"We're thrilled to have [Brooklyn Nine-Nine]", Greenblatt said. We ordered it throughout five seasons. Hulu also now has an SVOD deal with the show, so the two entities have a relationship of some nature already.

The cancelation of Brooklyn Nine-Nine by Fox sent shockwaves across the internet, as fans of the unbelievable comedy series took to the (virtual) streets in demand of its renewal.

Maybe more to the point, the ensemble comedy may have been a "better fit" financially for NBC.

A number of the shows actors took to Twitter to celebrate it's return by sharing gifs, inside jokes from the show, and thanking the fans for their support.

And on Friday the show's executive producer Michael Schur took to Twitter to share the exciting news. Oh, has it only been one year? "It wouldn't have happened without you".
