There are still quite a few series left hanging (and I’m hoping Lucifer earns a season two), but at least fans of Fox’s The Last Man on Earth and Brooklyn Nine-Nine have cause to celebrate. Both half-hour comedies have been renewed by the network for the 2016-2017 season. The Last Man on Earth earned a third season while Fox has ordered up a fourth season of Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
“We’re so proud of these comedies. Each has its own unique voice, but they both boast terrific ensembles with stand-out characters and, of course, phenomenal writing, which are the hallmarks of all great comedies,” stated David Madden, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “We’d like to thank the executive producers, casts and crews of Brooklyn Nine-Nine and The Last Man on Earth for their tremendous work this season, and look forward to what’s in store next year.”
Brooklyn Nine-Nine season three is currently airing on Tuesday nights at 9pm ET/PT and stars Andy Samberg, Terry Crews, Stephanie Beatriz, Andre Braugher, Melissa Fumero, Joe Lo Truglio, and Joel McKinnon Miller. The series comes from creators/writers Dan Goor and Michael Schur, with Goor, Schur, and David Miner and Luke Del Tredici executive producing.
The Last Man on Earth will be back with new episodes on April 3, 2016. The comedy series was created by Will Forte who also stars alongside Kristen Schaal, January Jones, Mary Steenburgen, Cleopatra Coleman, and Mel Rodriguez.
