Warning: Contains spoilers for Brooklyn Nine-Nine's fifth season. 

Fox has canned Brooklyn Nine-Nine after five seasons and it seems like everyone is devastated.

The series follows goofy cop Det. Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) and his friends at NYPD's 99th Precinct. Created by Parks and Recreation producers Dan Goor and Michael Schur, the show premiered in 2013. 

Goor told TV Line in April he was cautiously optimistic about Season 6, and that the upcoming Season 5 finale featuring Jake and Amy's wedding  is not intended to be a series finale. However, "in the unlikely event that it does serve [as our final episode]," fans will be satisfied, he maintained.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine has scooped two Golden Globes in its time; Best TV Series - Comedy or Musical and Best Actor in a Comedy for Samberg.

Stars of the hit comedy have taken to Twitter to express their sadness over the cancellation, thanking fans for their loyalty to the show.  Stephanie Beatriz also acknowledged the show's passionate viewers, writing "squad, we love you... Your sadness is noted," while her castmate Melissa Fumero admitted she was "still processing" the news.
