Brookyln Nine-Nine is an American action/comedy TV show focusing on the (fictional) 99th Precinct of the New York City Police Department in Brooklyn.


Main Characters


The fandom is still small compared to other new 2013-2014 shows and is mainly focused on Tumblr, AO3 and FFN websites. It qualified for Yuletide in 2013, and fics have been written for it every year since then. Due to its three main female characters, it is also a popular fandom in woman-centric and femslash-centric fanworks exchanges like rarewomen and femslashex.[1]


By the end of the first season, the most popular ship was the het ship of Jake Peralta/Amy Santiago.[2] Femslash is significantly more popular than M/M slash,[3] and the most popular femslash pairing is Rosa Diaz/Amy Santiago, though Rosa Diaz/Gina Linetti has been growing in popularity.[4] Despite this, the canon M/M pairing Ray Holt/Kevin Cozner is popular, and a few smaller slash pairings have gotten some traction, such as Jake Peralta/Charles Boyle.

Cancellation and Renewal

In May 2018, Fox canceled Brooklyn Nine-Nine, but the show was picked up by NBC 31 hours later. In that short amount of time, fans expressed their outrage at the cancellation using twitter hashtags #RenewB99 and #SaveB99. There were also several fan petitions. When the season 6 renewal was announced, fans reacted online using appropriate gifs and memes to express themselves. For example:

Common Tropes


Many have argued the show is a form of Copaganda.
