Fans on Twitter, who had been in mourning over the show’s apparent demise, also celebrated the turnaround:
I like thinking that Amy Santiago walked into NBC with a binder full of reasons they should pickup #BrooklynNineNine and convinced them immediately.

the cancellation and renewal of b99 was so dramatic and intense like i just went though every single emotional possible in like 36 hours and the underdog ended up winning when all was lost… i want to watch it as a film
