But, following such an outpour of support for the show, Brooklyn Nine-Nine was quickly on the road to being revived.

Fans are now calling on other networks as well as Hulu, Amazon and Netflix to help save the show.

According to Deadline, "Hulu, Brooklyn Nine-Nine's SVOD home, is considered the most likely choice, and I hear there had been conversations about the show moving there". Universal TV, the vertically aligned studio which produced the Mike Schur and Dan Goor comedy, received nearly immediate calls from mulitple outlets to potentially revive the series.

Netflix, though, has a much bigger reach than Hulu.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine was among the numerous shows to be canceled by Fox on Thursday, but amid the shock and outrage online there may still be hope for fans of the cult cop comedy.

Fox has announced the cancellation of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, its Andy Samberg-led sitcom about a precinct of goofy detectives who still manage to be very good at their jobs.

Its return scored the season's second largest audience - even higher than its winter finale episode. It'd be a great business move for any network willing to take on this series for the right price.

While The Last Man on Earth had a bit of a bumpy ride throughout, it was overall an incredibly interesting and amusing show, with a concept that could have been truly fantastic.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine's final episode will air on Sunday May 20 at 8:30/7:30c. Each of these networks has a connection to Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which means Hulu's claim to the series' future isn't certain. Hulu has given fresh new life to a number of FOX canceled series, The Mindy Project being the most recognized.

Meanwhile, in the United Kingdom, the show will continue to air the remaining episodes on Thursdays at 9pm on E4, with the previous seasons available to stream on Netflix. Hulu now already has claim over the show via SVOD (streaming video on demand), which makes it the most likely outlet to pick up the show.
