“We knew in the weeks leading up to the upfronts that we were on the bubble. That said we had been on the bubble before and felt optimistic so on some level we all felt like we’d hopefully get renewed. Then a few days beforehand it became scarier and scarier and it felt like the momentum was shifting towards we might not get picked up. And then on that Thursday it became clear that we were not going to get picked up. I got a call from the studio and then the network…it really didn’t hit me as real until I heard the words, ‘Your show is not being picked up.’ It was like, ‘Oh my God’ was echoing in my head,” Goor says, noting that he was learning the news of a potential pickup elsewhere as outlets were reporting it.
Have you started imaging how a 13 episode order versus 22 or 23 order will affect the storytelling?
We’re really excited to have a 13-episode season, that’s going to be one of the first things we talk about in the writers’ room, is how to structure that. That affords us a lot of creative opportunities. I don’t know exactly how we’re going to approach it, I have a few thoughts and am really curious what the other writers have to say, but I’m excited that it gives us more time per episode. Twenty-two episodes is so grueling; it’s nice to have a little bit more time to focus on each one.
Are you please Brooklyn Nine-Nine was saved from cancellation? Will you follow the show to NBC? Hoping for Season 7?
