FEATURED STORIES

“Nine-Nine,” created by Dan Goor and Michael Schur, chronicles the antics of a cop squad. Its ensemble cast includes Andy Samberg, Melissa Fumero, Terry Crews and Andre Braugher. The show has been praised for featuring a racially diverse cast, as well as tackling issues such as racial profiling and sexual misconduct.

The future of the series was uncertain after Fox pulled the plug on it in May 2018. Avid fans mourned its cancellation and appealed online for its renewal. Famous fans such as “Star Wars” actor Mark Hamill and acclaimed director Guillermo del Toro were among those who joined the clamor. Finally, NBC granted the show a second life and the sixth season premiered in January.  /ra
