‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine,’ ‘The Last Man on Earth’ renewed early by Fox


While the fates of many shows on Fox are very much still up in the air, there is clearly nothing for fans of either “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” or “The Last Man on Earth” to be worried about.

Today, the network announced that both “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “The Last Man on Earth” will be back for their fourth and third seasons, respectively. They are two comedies reasonably popular with critics, and while their audience is not huge, they are faithful and have stuck with the show through thick and thin so far. It remains to be seen when the two will premiere during the next TV season, but we personally hope to see the two of them paired off once more with the animated comedies on Fox. Both “Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life” and “Bordertown” really failed to score much in the way of a big audience.

In a statement confirming the news, Fox entertainment president David Madden said the following:

“We’re so proud of these comedies … Each has its own unique voice, but they both boast terrific ensembles with stand-out characters and, of course, phenomenal writing, which are the hallmarks of all great comedies.”

There are still many other comedies still currently up in the air this season, with “New Girl,” “Grandfathered,” and “The Grinder” being among them. We feel like the former show probably has the best shot given it has the strongest ratings of the group; while the numbers for “The Grinder” are unequivocally bad, it is a really funny show that deserves however many opportunities that Fox is willing to give it.
