YES! There's going to be even MORE Brooklyn Nine-Nine next season

First, it was cancelled. Then it was un-cancelled.

And now Brooklyn Nine-Nine fans will be getting even more time with Peralta, Santiago and Co.

It was announced on Friday [via Deadline] that NBC has ordered five more episodes of the beloved cop comedy, bringing the total to 18 episodes for season 6.

Earlier this summer, Fox announced that it would be pulling the plug on Brooklyn Nine-Nine after the fifth series aired.

But barely a day after the cop sitcom was axed, NBC stepped in to save the day - and gave the show a 13-episode season six.

NBC Entertainment's Chairman Robert Greenblatt said in a statement:

"Ever since we sold this show to Fox I've regretted letting it get away, and it's high time it came back to its rightful home.

"Mike Schur, Dan Goor, and Andy Samberg grew up on NBC and we're all thrilled that one of the smartest, funniest, and best cast comedies in a long time will take its place in our comedy line-up.

"I speak for everyone at NBC, here's to the Nine-Nine!"

And in July, Andy Samberg - who plays Jake Peralta - admitted to TVLine that the upcoming season six would "100 per cent" not be their last.

Although, he added, he couldn't really say for sure and he was just "trying to be confident".

He added:

"It's gonna get all written and shot before we even air, so we won't know what the ratings are, the public response…"

The actor said it was all a "real roll of the dice", so they may end up shooting three different endings to the finale - just in case.

Better safe than sorry, but let's hope the Nine-Nine will be sticking around for years to come.
