Fox has brought out the axe and canceled three popular comedies.
With Disney and Comcast currently in a tug of war match over Fox, the network has decided to do some house cleaning. The Mick, The Last Man on Earth and Brooklyn Nine-Nine were all canceled on Wednesday in a move that shocked not only fans of the shows but also people involved with the shows as well.
Writer, producer Will Forte‘s The Last Man on Earth lasted for four seasons. The series centered on a group of survivors trying to deal with life after an apocalyptic virus wipes out the majority of the human race. It starred Forte, Kristen Schaal, January Jones, Mel Rodriguez, Mary Steenburgen and Cleopatra Coleman. The series was executive produced by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie, 21 Jump Street.)
The second show to get the ax was the short-lived comedy, The Mick. Created by Dave Chernin and John Chernin, the series stared Kaitlin Olson, who was also an executive producer. The show lasted a mere two seasons. Despite being an irresponsible person, Mackenzie “Mickey” Molng, must become the parental guardian for her snobby niece and nephews.
The final series to get canceled was the cop/comedy show, Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Created by Dan Goor and Michael Schur, the series revolves around Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg), an immature but talented NYPD detective in Brooklyn’s 99th Precinct, who comes into immediate conflict with his new commanding officer, the overly serious Captain Raymond Holt (Andre Braugher). The supporting cast features Stephanie Beatriz as Rosa Diaz; Terry Crews as Terrence “Terry” Jeffords; Melissa Fumero as Amy Santiago; Joe Lo Truglio as Charles Boyle; Chelsea Peretti as Regina “Gina” Linetti; Dirk Blocker as Michael Hitchcock and Joel McKinnon Miller as Norman “Norm” Scully.
At the time of writing this article, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is rumored to have found a new home at Hulu.
