Season five of Brooklyn Nine-Nine is now (finally) available on Netflix

Brooklyn Nine-Nine has won numerous awards in recent years.

In news that’s sure to delight Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans, season five is (finally) available on Netflix.

After the internet’s constant questions about why Netflix was only supplying the first four seasons of Brooklyn Nine-Nine in Ireland and the UK, the streaming service finally confirmed in January that season five would be available soon.

And following the announcement, fans of the show immediately began flooding the web with positive comments and memes to rejoice at the news.

This came just after the showing of the shows starting an episode of the 6th season in the US, which smashed its highest viewing rate at the time.

It’s been a roller-coaster few months for fans of the cop comedy.

Last summer, Fox announced that it would be pulling the plug on Brooklyn Nine-Nine after the fifth series aired.

But barely a day after the cop sitcom was axed, NBC stepped in to save the day – and gave the show a 13-episode season six.

NBC Entertainment’s Chairman Robert Greenblatt said in a statement:

“Ever since we sold this show to Fox I’ve regretted letting it get away, and it’s high time it came back to its rightful home.

“Mike Schur, Dan Goor, and Andy Samberg grew up on NBC and we’re all thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest, and best cast comedies in a long time will take its place in our comedy line-up.

“I speak for everyone at NBC, here’s to the Nine-Nine!”

It was announced a few months later that NBC ordered five more episodes, bringing the season six total to 18 episodes.
