COP comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been renewed for a seventh season by NBC.

The network has picked up the Andy Samberg/Andre Braugher fronted comedy for a complete run after rescuing it from the axe by Fox (where it ran for five seasons).

Lisa Katz and Tracey Pakosta, co-presidents of scripted programming at NBC Entertainment, said in a statement: “It’s been one of our great joys as a network to give Brooklyn Nine-Nine a second life.

“Cheers to [executive producers] Dan Goor, Mike Schur, Luke Del Tredici and David Miner, and our amazing cast and crew who each week turn New York’s finest into New York’s funniest.”

The show’s cast reportedly learned of the renewal during a table read for an upcoming episode.

NBC’s decision to save Brooklyn Nine-Nine has proven a success given that the critically-acclaimed show has actually improved its ratings in the US since switching from Fox.

The show also brings in money for NBCUniversal via off-network syndication on TBS and streaming on Hulu.
