In the five seasons that "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" has been on the air, the show has enjoyed a substantial fan following: one so effective that they managed to rescue the show from cancellation in April 2018. This used to be essentially impossible to do, but in an age of social media, fans were able to mobilize immediately to make the case to TV executives that there was life in the old girl yet. As a result, Fox and NBC made a deal, and control of the show has passed to the so-called "peacock" network.
Fans were drawn to the show for many reasons, including Saturday Night Live alumnus Andy Samberg in the lead role. In addition to this, there is a core cast that took the increasingly fashionable step of letting their female characters enjoy some laugh lines, in contrast to a lot of shows of this type that stereotypically cast women as the "straight man" of the group dealing with immature and silly men. The show's diversity is also appealing to audiences, with the beloved Terry Crews in the role of Sergeant Terry Jeffords. Most of all, though, it's about the writing: the show is funny and not too cynical, and its core characters are relatable despite their numerous flaws. That means it's time to figure out which of them you are most like!
