As the fictional detectives of Brooklyn’s 99th precinct recently discussed, in the past year they’ve survived witness protection, re-assignment to the night shift, a potential shutdown, and one of their own getting hit by a bus. Now there’s one more item to be added to that list: Fox has ordered a fifth season of the sitcom. The news comes from The Hollywood Reporter, which puts Brooklyn Nine-Nine alongside fellow returning Fox comedy The Last Man On Earth. That leaves New Girl as the network’s last live-action comedy to learn its fate—but if it’s canceled, Officer Winston “Carport Hero” Bishop could always transfer to the Nine-Nine. The shows take place in the same universe, after all.
